Though my 4 year old son has been to Water’s Edge three times before, he was a little nervous at the beginning of today’s appointment.  It didn’t take long after Dr. D came over to talk to him for him to calm right down.  Heidi was sweet and calm with him and got him to actually enjoy the rest of his cleaning.  She even talked him into getting X-rays done.  The staff are great.  We will continue to come back as long as they will have us!

Dr. D and team are welcoming, so friendly, and they provide A+ service. I’ve seen Dr. D for routine and emergency work and they’ve always been more than accommodating. They go above and beyond and follow-up to ensure that you’re doing well after any dental procedures other. Thank you, Dr. D and team for truly caring about your patients.

Recently moved here and am thrilled to have found Water’s Edge. Today was my first visit. ALL of the staff were friendly and knowledgeable. Dr. Dahlkemper made me feel like I’d been going there for years. And I love the extra special touch of picking a little surprise from the goodie basket on the way out. Looking forward to my next visit!!!

Just finished with my 6 month checkup. As usual, everything was perfect. The staff is always incredible. Dr. D is always my calming force. I recently had to have veneers due to enamel loss on my upper teeth. It was a life changing experience. I went from being extremely self conscious about my appearance to loving to smile. Thank you for everything.

I really enjoy my visits to Water’s Edge Dentistry. My hygienist Jessica Carney is top notch. I am really happy with her thorough cleanings, she takes her time, and does a great job. I am always able to see the same hygienist which is really nice, as she knows my complete history. Every time I see Jessica I know I am going to leave with my teeth and gums feeling and looking great. The front desk is also very friendly and knowledgeable. I never have a problem using my insurance for my visits. Dr. Dahlkemper always explains to me what she has examined, how my teeth and gums are looking, and makes things very simple. She also always spends a few minutes chatting with me, and I enjoy getting to know Dr. Dahlkemper and her staff. Everyone in the office is very relatable and I am a very happy patient!

The staff is friendly, knowledgeable and professional.  I thought I was using a state of the art facility until I found Water’s Edge. There was no comparaison! Dr. D gives a full explanation for any suggested procedure and you can see what is being discussed by a screen right in front of you.  You are given a written write up for each procedure so cost is known well in advance.  They cater to your every anxiety! It’s a one stop shop to maintain your smile as well as a youthful appearance!  Best in town, hands down!!

Absolutely THE best dentist in town. Dr. D is so amazing. She and her entire staff are so caring and nice. They make you feel comfortable and at ease. I have never had a dentist that genuinely cares so much about her patients. As someone who has always been afraid to go to the dentist, the minute you walk in the door, you are greeted with a smile and immediately know everything will be okay. I will never go anywhere else. They are phenomenal.

I’m a fairly new patient and I have had nothing but the best experiences. I needed a couple things done back to back. I also broke a crown unexpectedly over a weekend and Monday morning they were able to get me in. I thought, they’d just smooth things out and make it livable until I could get in to get it fixed….well, no sir! They got me in that morning, fitted me for a new crow and got a temporary put on so I am fully taken care of until the permanent arrives! 100% good to go!! I love the staff and their chair side manner. I have NEVER been this happy with a dental office!

Waters Edge is by far, the best place I have ever been to for dental work. The whole staff is warm ,welcoming, and knowledgeable. I will be going back for more work soon and am actually looking forward to it. I highly recommend this practice to everyone. My son and my wife will also be going soon and we are thrilled to have found such an excellent service for our family!!!

Kacy M. from Mt Pleasant, SC (Source: Yelp)


I’ve never been one to look forward to going to the dentist. But now I truly do! Dr Dahlkemper is amazing. Not only is she knowledgeable, but she is kind and patient, and only employs the same. So much was done incorrectly at previous dentists (I’ll leave it at that). She and her team put their hearts into what is their passion and it shows. You are in good hands here. Thank you, Waters Edge Dentistry

Denise D. from Mount Pleasant, SC (Source: Yelp)


I love the whole team at Water’s Edge Dentistry. I was searching for a new dentist a few years back because I felt like just a number at the practice my family had been going to for years. I did some research and found Dr. Dahlkemper and decided to give her a try. The office atmosphere is calm and relaxing. The staff is friendly and personable. My teenage son was born without one of his front teeth and Dr. Dahlkemper and her team have done a fantastic job of making him a bridge that looks very good. The hygienists are very thorough but gentle and they always take their time. There is no rush and yet I don’t believe I’ve every waited more than 5 minutes for my appointment. I appreciate the services Water’s Edge has to offer and am thankful that they don’t try to push a lot of extras to make another buck. I feel good every time I walk through their door and even better when I leave.

Love this place! Came in because it had very good reviews. Now I know first hand that all the positive reviews were true. Dr. Dahlkemper and her staff all were very friendly and extremely good at what they do. I don’t particularly like to go to the dentist especially because of the needles. But they are good listeners and very empathetic to their patients concerns and needs. They made me feel at ease and that meant the world to me. I recommend this place to anyone and everyone who asks about a good dentist.

Drew D. from Mount Pleasant, SC (Source: Yelp)


Wow. Really blown away. Had a day off and wanted to get into the dentist for an exam (and possible cleaning). Read some amazing reviews about W.E.D. and decided to call (they’re in-network w/ my dental insurance). Long story short, they got me in THAT DAY (had a cancellation). Angela (hygienist) was AWESOME. Did exam. Used voice recognition software. Did X rays. Took INDIVIDUAL pictures of each tooth (both sides) with a little hand held camera thing. We talked holistic dentistry. Electric rotating toothbrushes, dental probiotics, flossing (of course), fluoride free toothpaste (recommended one w/ neem in it!), palate expansion, etc etc. And then Dr. D came in and had a great convo w/ her too! I’m not exaggerating when I say this was the BEST experience I’ve ever had at the dentist’s office. They gave me a sound dental plan moving forward, some referrals (for a tooth I need extracted)…. just top notch! Would give 6 stars if I could.

What an impressive dentist office and I do no not like going to one. They were a class act from the time I walked in to the time I walked out. Very clean office, nice staff, top of the line equipment and service. A young lady named Heidi did my first visit and she was a class act. I HIGHLY recommend Water’s Edge Dentist.

David B. Mt Pleasant, SC (Source: Yelp)


The staff  and Dr D are very professional and take the time to explain what is going to happen….what to expect…..and in the end – they do a great job.  I had my teeth whitened and the procedure was tolerable – and the results were incredible.  Kudos to the entire staff and Dr D. Also – they have a pretty good supply of numbing medicine for those that are “hard to numb”.

Waters Edge Dentistry of Mt Pleasant takes exceptional care of their patients. Dr. D is very personable, compassionate considerate and thorough in her work. she and her practice are very knowledgeable and work well as a team.

I love Water’s Edge dentistry! The staff is very friendly, and have always been concerned with my comfort when I’m in the chair. They are also very prompt, I’ve never had to wait more than a few minutes for my appointment, even when I show up early, they always seem to be able to get me in without any wait. I highly recommend Water’s Edge for anyone looking for a fabulous dentist!

My wife and I moved to the Mt. Pleasant area in the last year and was looking for a dentist. We were told by a neighbor about what a great job Water’s Edge Dentistry had done. I made an appointment and found them them to be “Top Notch”.We I walked in and was greeted by a very nice front desk staff who offered me coffee and a seat while I waited. When I went back for my cleaning and checkup the staff was just as nice and warm. Taking their time to get to know me. They were very professional and told me about everything they were going to do. When Dr. “D” walked in she had the best bedside manners. She was very nice and took her time talking to me, so many dentist seem to be in a hurry just to make money. I also found out she and her staff are very involved with the community participating in many events and charities which shows me they CARE. I would highly recommend Water’s Edge. Dr. “D” and Staff keep doing what you are doing!!!

I’m the biggest little kid when it comes down to going to the dentist…. BUT Jessica who is pretty dang AWESOME at everything she does, explained everything in a way I was fully able to understand! Will absolutely recommend them to anyone and everyone!! Thanks for the great experience and I will be using you guys from now on!

Barbara S. from McClellanville, SC (Source: Yelp)


I guess one would never say that one enjoys going to the dentist, but I do, and going to Water’s Edge makes going a pleasure. I love knowing that my mouth hygiene is on target and I can’t know that if I fear the dentist’s office. Water’s Edge alleviates all fears. The hygienist is inviting, attentive, and thorough. I am terrible with names so I can’t say exactly who she is, but I get her every time, so I guess Water’s Edge assigns patients the same hygienist. Anyway, I am pleased with the care I receive there and wholeheartedly recommend this facility if you need excellent dental care.

Allison M. from Charleston, SC (Source: Yelp)


I just got  a cleaning this time but I was an hour early for my appointment so they moved me up 20 minutes, which really made my day. Dr. Dahlkemper made me feel at ease about everything going on with my teeth and said we would take care of everything easily and with little pain and recovery time.  I love my dental family!!

Huge THANK YOU to Dr. Nicole Dahlkemper & Darlene for their incredible service yesterday! I’m in outside sales & I broke my front tooth Thursday afternoon at 4:45pm! By 5:05 I was discussing potential temporary solutions with Dr. D & her team- past business hours. Not only did they ‘fix’ my tooth but Dr. D checked in with me today with a follow-up plan ‘just-in-case’ something happens on my upcoming week long business trip! They are amazing!

The best dental practice! I have been coming here since 2011, and the staff is unparalleled. Dr. Dahlkemper always goes above and beyond, and is truly invested in her patients. Additionally, they seem to have the most cutting-edge technology and equipment. The office is bright, sunny, and all-around a good experience. Which not many can say when visiting the dentist!

Natalie G. from Central, SC (Source: Yelp)


The best experience that I’ve ever had at a dental office! Dr. D and her team are very thorough and really seem to care about your overall dental health. One of the most technologically advanced offices I’ve ever visited. They allow you to not only view pictures of your teeth and x-rays, but also both educate and explain to you the procedures being done and the reasoning behind it. I highly recommend giving them a visit — you will not be disappointed!

Christy M. from Charleston, SC (Source: Yelp)


Listen… I hate…absolutely hate going to the dentist. I don’t want you to touch anything in my mouth, I don’t want to hear the dentist noises, I hate the cold air blower thing… I mean, dentistry is a necessary form of modern day torture right? As an adult I have cried and excused myself to go to the bathroom multiple times just to get away for a minute… I may be the worst patient ever, although I’ve never hurt anyone yet… those poor trusting souls putting their hands in peoples mouths. I’ve been to a few dentists in Charleston, but Water’s Edge is where I’m landing. Dr. D and Heather were the two that I saw on my last visit, which off the top of my head I think is my third or fourth visit. They are unbelievably understanding… I never feel like they are frustrated or annoyed with me (it’s happened before at other places… I get why, but I really can’t help it… I legitimately hate/have anxiety with the dental experience). Knowing that they’ll work with me and won’t force me to just deal with it (also happened before) gives me a lot more confidence going in… I know I can stop the process and communicate if something doesn’t feel right or hurts. My most recent visit was to get a cavity filled. I usually do the laughing gas for this, but they said that because it was an upper, no doubt they could get it numb and I would be fine. I trust them, so I was up for trying and saving myself $70 ish dollars. They were right. When the cold was bothering some of my other teeth, Heather came up with a creative little way to block it without having to numb the other teeth. Overall, I walked out feeling like I just accomplished some major feat… and maybe, just maybe they won’t make fun of me when I leave… I feel like I just earned a star or something…when we all know it’s Dr. D and Heather that really deserve the star. If you’re looking for somewhere that is on top of dentistry (you can see all their awards etc. Dr. D is like a dentist rock star), will work with you if you’re not exactly a fan of being a dental patient, this could be a really great option for you. Also… if you’re reading this and decide to choose it, put me as a reference! I think I get like a $25 kickback… saving up for that next stash of laughing gas! 🙂 Hahahaha.

This had to have been one of my best visits to the dentist! This was my 1st visit to Dr. Dahlkemper and the staff of Water’s Edge Family & Cosmetic Dentistry. From the time I walked in until I left, I was treated like I was part of the family there. I received AMAZING Customer service, a thorough dental check, along with a 1st visit gift! I would highly recommend Dr. Dahlkemper and her staff.

Kim B. from Mt Pleasant, SC (Source: Yelp)


Crazy good service! Just went through a temp crown to permanent crown procedure. Easy and painless all the way. Been going there every since Dr. D. Has been there. She took over from Dr. Thurman who retired. Experience breeds quality. Give this group a try. You have nothing to lose and will be glad you did.

Everything about the sleep treatment and this office is recommended! We love Dr. D and everyone in her office. We are always greeted with a smile and spoken to with respect! As for the sleep treatment, I am testifying as the wife of the patient. I can’t say enough positive things! I have slept next to a snoring husband forever and haven’t heard a peep since he started with his appliance!!! Seriously, NO SNORING is amazing!

This is by far the best dentist office I’ve ever been to. Dr. D. and her team are just the BEST!!! Even though I never had a cavity nor any oral surgery, I’ve always been a little scared of the dentist. I can honestly say that I am starting to enjoy going to the dentist now. I wanted to give a special shout out to Jessica, who took her time cleaning my teeth today. I’ve never had anybody do a job as thoroughly as her!!! She is amazing.

Virginia M. from Johns Island, SC (Source: Yelp)


We absolutely LOVE Water’s Edge Dentistry. My 13-year-old had a cavity filled today and he said there was zero pain or discomfort. They even put ESPN on the television so he could watch it during the procedure! They’re  amazing people who do a fantastic job and who pay attention to their clients and their client’s needs. Everything you want when someone’s feeling around in your mouth!!

Julie B. from Charleston, SC (Source: Yelp)


I had my teeth cleaned today and they feel great! The staff  and Dr. D were fabulous. The cleaning took a little longer that I anticipated but they were very thorough. They have a laser and really good equipment. They also have a price list at the end to let you know ahead of time how much fillings and other procedures cost. They show you how much your insurance pays so you are not surprised afterwards. I highly recommend Water’s Edge.

Gary Metts (Source: Facebook)


Nothing but class act. I have been through so many issues over the past few years and Dr. Dahlkemper and her staff are the best I have ever had help me. They go beyond what is asked. Coming in after hours, make time for serious issues, explaining everything so you understand and MOST Importantly they care like you are family. Keep doing what you are doing. Thanks Nicole for the special gift.

I have had a lot of trauma in child hood from an aggressive dentist that pulled ALL of my teeth, save two, only because he didn’t think I was developing fast enough. Needless to say I got real issues when it come to touching my face. Reluctantly I started using Waters Edge after an eight year absence from any care. To my surprise, I was able to put the past behind me and trust their care and treatment. I was straightened out in short order, and now only need simple cleanings. As an out of pocket payer, I find the price tag is worth the purchase. In addition the front of the house is fun to chat with if you take the time to say, “hi”, instead of staring at your cell phone.

It was my first dentist visit in a long time. It went as well as it possibly could have. I have a natural, healthy fear of the dentist office and they made it as comfortable as possible! Darlene and Jessica did such an amazing job, they are my dental angels. I’m almost excited and looking forward to going back. My health insurance doesn’t help me at all and Darlene did a great job saving me money and giving me options.

I have been going to Dr. D since I first moved to the Charleston area in 2010. She and her staff have always made my experience pleasant. I can really tell they care about my overall health and wellbeing, not just my teeth. They helped me create a beautiful smile for my wedding and I will never go anywhere else as long as I live in the Charleston area! Thank you ladies for being so awesome!
