I have been looking since I moved here 4 years ago to find a good dentist.  I was so discouraged I begged God to help me.  the next day I saw how Pleasant Family Dentist was voted the best, so I gave it a try. I had my first appointment today and I feel this is the one for me. I was very impressed with how professional they all are. how kind and they are all pleasant.  looking forward to my follow up appointments.  I have had some bad experiences with dentists in West Ashley.

Complicated procedure that went incredibly well. Dr. Jackowski is perhaps the most articulate dentist I’ve ever been treated by; however, he’s really teaching as he talks about what he’s doing. I found that I learned about what he was doing, how I can actively impact my dental future, and what it means. Highest recommendation.

I came in with a toothache and within a week and half they performed a root canal. The staff was friendly and warm. The most helpful and amazing thing for me was the option of the in office payment as I currently do not have an active dental insurance plan. I was in sooo much pain and because they are letting me do a payment plan I was able to get the root canal done by putting a down payment and making payments for a couple of months. Thank-you sooooo much!!!!

I need a crown fixed and called PFD for a possible appointment. I was astonished when the receptionists told me they could see me later that evening. Wow talk about making it convenient. I never had a dentist whose office did evening appointments. I went in and after some initial checks had my crown fixed in no time at all. My insurance covered some and my copay was very reasonable. What a deal! The staff was very nice and the Dentist was awesome! I was relieved to know I had found our new Dentist office! Looking forward to my next visit.

Wife had dental emergency and we had just moved here. They saw her immediately and repaired the emergency. They were so responsive and professional, we made them our primary dentist. Since that first day, we’ve been back and had cleaning, x-rays and a filing replaced. Nearly painless, very accommodating and quite friendly.

Holly M. from Clover, SC (Source: Yelp)


We were new to the area and had to find a dentist for our family of five. I was overwhelmed with how above and beyond the entire staff made us all feel being new patients! From the meet and greet- all the way down to making sure our insurance matched up perfectly! They truly made us feel welcome!

Great for me AND my kids!   I’ve always had decent teeth and had dentists tell me I had gear teeth.  It wasn’t until Dr Jackowski was honest with me about where I could improve that I truly reached my dental health potential.  My 8 year old son never did well at the children’s dentist.  His first visit at Pleasant Family was awesome from the start.  He is now comfortable enough to be in his own room while I have my appointment in another.  Pleasant Family Dentistry really lives fully up to their full name.

I broke a crown. They were able to get me in the same day that I called. Everyone was very friendly. Office was clean and quiet. I took broken crown with me and they were able to repair it and glue it back on so I did not have to get new one! I am VERY happy! I don’t have insurance and fee was reasonable. Gave me information on office insurance plan. I made appointment for cleaning and am going to purchase their plan. DEFINITELY RECOMMEND!

This was my first visit to Pleasant Family Dentistry and it was very positive. The front desk staff was very friendly. My hygienist was very professional and informative. She explained everything that she was doing. My dentist was also professional. The biggest plus was there was no wait time which I greatly appreciated. I will return in 6 months.

Michelle A. from Pawleys Island, SC (Source: Yelp)


My husband and I just left the Best dentist office I’ve ever been to. I’ve always been terrified of dentists because of a very mean dentist I had as a child-an old army dentist. I can say the whole staff at Pleasant Family Dentistry were awesome!! Caitlin was my dental hygienist and she was thoughtful and very caring with all my nerves. I am actually looking forward to going every 6 months-which I’ve never in my life said before. I recommend anyone looking for a wonderful dentist to call them up.

Samantha B. from Ladson, SC (Source: Yelp)


What a wonderful office and staff! Very friendly and offer great chair side manner. Heated chairs, comfy blankets, and sunglasses so the light doesn’t blind you. Everyone is so welcoming and kind. All my questions were answered about my treatment and they even worked with my finances! I would recommend this office to everyone!

I have never EVER experienced such an incredible dentist office. My mom had an appointment and raved about how efficient and incredible every single person in the office was, but I didn’t really believe her until I had my own appointment. I used to never look forward to going to the dentist, but now when I have an appointment, I’m so psyched for the best experience ever! They have blankets if you get too cold, water and coffee in the waiting room, and I’ve had the best conversations with all of the staff. Definitely the best dentist around!!

Kevin S. from North Charleston, SC (Source: Yelp)


Pleasant Family Dentistry has put people first. They are working in conjunction with some other organizations to promote oral hygiene. They are calling it “Free Smiles”. Each customer (up to the first 100) are allowed to choose from a free cleaning, free filling, or free extraction. The staff has been very courteous and attentive. The facilities are very clean and waiting room comfortable. They accept most insurances. If you are in need of a dentist, I would recommend calling to setup an appointment. Well done Pleasant Family Dentistry.

I’ve been going to Pleasant Family Dentistry since moving to here over 5 years ago and have no regrets! Melissa is an awesome hygienist–she makes an effort to be gentle and accommodating during the cleaning and is always super friendly and seems to be in a great mood, even at the end of the day. I highly recommend!

While visiting family here in SC, I started to have a problem with a crown. I was able to make an appointment to be seen right away, a big plus. Also, the office staff were true to the name of the practice – Pleasant all the way around, and they showed genuine concern for my comfort and well-being. Thank you so much. I would recommend this practice to anyone looking for a dentist.

Courtney was the best!! I was real nervous about going to the dentist and she made my experience pain free and relaxing. She answered all my questions and did not make me feel rushed to get to her next patient. I had a bad experience with my previous dentist and I will definitely be going back to Pleasant Family Dentistry.

A dentist office that is actually fun to go to and you dont wanna leave because the staff goes above the standard to care for their patients. Everyone is so nice and the environment is friendly. I recommend this dentist to EVERYONE, especially if you are terrified of them. They make it exciting to get your teeth checked out.

Recently had a root canal at Pleasant Family Dentistry. I was dreading the experience as I’ve had them before and was bracing for some uncomfortableness. Dr. Sarner changed my opinion, though. Not only was he professional, knowledgeable, and extremely personable and kind, his skills were top notch. I did not feel anything…from the time he numbed the area until I walked out the door and beyond (no pain). Wonderful addition to the practice. Also, a big shout out to Dr. Jackowski for his professionalism, humor, and excellent skills EVERY time! Thank you!

Many thanks to Dr. Jackowski who did an amazing job on a very complicated tooth that I didn’t think was salvageable. He took time to explain the procedure and continued to keep me informed of what was going on throughout the treatment. His assistants were kind and professional, too. Highly recommend Dr. Jackowski.

Cathy K. from Mount Pleasant, SC (Source: Yelp)


From the first time I spoke with Pleasant Family Dentistry until my actual initial first exam, my experience has been extremely professional and everyone is so polite. I have had many dentists in the past as I have moved many times. This office is truly the best yet, very current and relaxing, I would recommend to anyone. An added item, they presented a “welcoming” gift when I arrived. Cathy K.

PLEASANT FAMILY DENTISTRY is as good as it gets for dental care in the Mount Pleasant area. I’ve been coming here with my children for more than ten years, and in that time, we have been treated beautifully, with all concerns addressed immediately, and same-day appointments for emergencies. The staff is wonderful, personable and genuinely friendly; the dentists are gentle, careful and thorough. I always have my questions answered and they go above and beyond in helping with all insurance issues and treatment estimates. I love this office and expect to continue coming here as long as I live in the area.

Awesome experience – from check in all the way through to check out! I love that they give me an estimate, based on my insurance, of what my out of pocket cost for any procedure will be so there are no surprises! Also, the hygienists and dental assistants are amazing – patient, thorough, prompt, and caring. Dr. Jackowski has never once recommended unnecessary treatment, and is extremely patient and takes the time to show me what I need done and why based on xrays and pictures. I would highly recommend this practice to anyone!

Once again a great pleasure to do business with PFD. Ladies at the front desk were friendly and efficient. Jill was my dental hygienist for the day. Loved Jill’s personality. Dawn walked me through a treatment plan for my next July visit. As always it was good to see Doctor Jackowski. I always learn something new talking to him.

Today was my first visit to Pleasant Family Dentistry and I must say I was impressed. From the welcoming gift to the friendly staff to an awesome dentist, kudos. I had two front teeth that were chipping so I scheduled an appointment for today. The dentist fixed them on the spot and I couldn’t be more pleased. I highly recommend PFD!

Travel F. from Charleston, SC (Source: Yelp)


Great dental office!  I wish I had found them years ago!  I had a very complicated case and it was an emergency.  I was not a patient here previous to this emergency and 3 other dentists made “consultation” appointments but couldn’t get me into actually help. (So basically wasted a lot of time and money for nothing!!)  This office got me in ASAP, was very professional and accommodating, and I had a great experience.  Thank you so much!  I highly recommend this office and will continue to come here and bring my entire family here.

Just took my 3 year old son, my 18 month old daughter and myself to Pleasant Family Dentistry. We walked in, and they had two helium balloons and two Bearinstein bear books about going to the dentist waiting for the kids. The hygienist was AMAZING with my three year old son to the point where he was comfortable in the room by himself and me in the next room over with my 18 month old. The hygienist tried all the different tools/tactics to get her to open her mouth and was able to polish a couple front teeth which I consider a win 🙂 both kids left excited and smiling, and my son can’t wait for his next trip! I also had my first appointment with them today and was thrilled that they didn’t push anything on me. When I asked about wisdom teeth removal and my crooked lower teeth they said I could, totally up to me, but not necessary. And the water bottle gift was a nice touch. 🙂

Love PFD! I’ve been coming here for almost 15 years and have watched the practice grow. Regardless of size, the folks at PFD are pleasant and very friendly. My dentist is Dr. Jackowski and he is awesome. My hygienist Diamond is so sweet. I highly recommend PFD if you’re looking for a practice that offers every and all dental/orthodontic services and a whole lot more.

Elizabeth B. from Mount Pleasant, SC (Source: Yelp)


I have extreme “dentist office phobia” but they make me as comfortable and at ease as possible, and they let me wear the X-ray cape the entire time because I find it oddly comforting. Very knowledgeable practitioners, and everyone in the office is so incredibly friendly and welcoming. I love that they have everything in-house: oral surgery, dentistry, orthodontics, etc. Plus, their hours can accommodate people with odd work schedules such as mine. I will never switch dentist offices again!

As always, my appointment was a great experience at PFD. Started on time and was finished in a timely manner, yet had a fantastic cleaning. Judy is a wonderful hygienist who cares for her patients dental health and well-being. I love the way my teeth feel after my visit. And I know if anything else is going on with my teeth, Judy will find it and get the right dentist involved in taking care of the problem. Great dental office, fantastic hygienist!

After relocating to Mt Pleasant our family needed a dentist. We read some great reviews for Pleasant Family Dentistry and decided to use them. Pleasant Family has an extensive staff making them a true full service practice. They are competent, efficient, punctual and very nice to deal with from the reception crew, to billing and onto the DDS staff. I am sure there are many great dentists in the area but we feel we made a great choice in Pleasant Family and their team.

A P. from Charleston, SC (Source: Yelp)


I recently moved to Mt. Pleasant and was looking for a new dentist. I saw an ad in the Mount Pleasant Magazine that highly recommended this practice. I’ve been there twice already and I’m extremely satisfied with the quality of care provided me, as well as how friendly and accommodating every member of the staff is. I’m so glad I chose them as my new provider!

Pleasant Family Dentistry not only lived up to the accolades by Mt. Pleasant Magazine as the best dental clinic in Mt. Pleasant, but I can now say they also have one of the best dental hygienists I have ever encountered. Judy was excellent, explained everything about procedures, and performed her job with the highest professionalism. State of the art facility and staff. I highly recommend them. And I am picky about dentists!!

I went to Pleasant Family Dentistry because I was told that I needed a crown, and I wanted it to be done at a DDS that could complete the whole process in one day. They can do this here, without the goop that is needed to make a mold, or a second appt. like what is needed at other dentist’s offices. During my appointment, I was told that I didn’t even need the crown! I was very happy with the whole experience-the staff were professional and very personable.

Thank you Pleasant Family Dentistry for an amazing visit. I was greeted with smiles from your front office. My hygienist Judy was very gentle and informative and on time! When my appointment was finished, Miriam went over my future treatment with me and answered all of my questions. I am so happy my family has found a dentist that is convenient to our home and our busy schedules.

My son had a regular hygiene visit and, as usual, the experience was very enjoyable. Amber patiently worked with my son to take accurate X-rays and then making sure he was comfortable throughout the entire cleaning procedure. He barely flinched during that time! Dr. Jacowski did a great job examining him and giving me a thorough review of the state of his dental health. Time and again, I have nothing but good experiences with this practice and would recommend it to anyone!
