Pros of this location: *Play area and video games to keep kids entertained during wait*Large waiting area*Most of the staff was very friendly and the kids liked them (they were silly and cut up with the kids to help them relax*Bi-lingual (which doesn't affect us, but is great for other families)*Wait time was average*Appointments can be made online, and you can get reminders and updates online and via text*Their hours of operation are convenientCons of this location:*Not in what I would consider and ideal location- I honestly was a little uneasy in that area. *Some of the reception staff were not friendly nor very helpful- I had to keep probing and pushing for answers and got attitude from one in particular.*The staff member who brought my daughter back out and did the post-check consult spoke/understood almost no English, which was very unhelpful.Our reasons for choosing Kool-Smiles were because they accept children's Medicaid plans, and b/c our previous dentist left my kids mouths in need of emergency care after he neglected to do things that needed to be done and from not doing things correctly. This was only our first experience with this Kool-Smiles, and though it got off to a rough start, I think we will give them another shot. I would recommend them so far. We have another appointment in a week for some follow-up treatment, and will review again based on that.

I am terrified of dentists. Most people see this as a irrational fear (especially dental professionals). For this reason I have not seen a dentist for over a decade except for emergency purposes. Dr. Scott and his wonderful staff made me feel at ease. With all the work they had to do for me they took many hours working. When I got in the chair (even after some medication help) I was shaking from fear. They gave me a blanket as a security blanket, and just talked to me until I calmed down. They made me feel like they cared about my feelings.They were patient, kind and considerate. They explained everything with each move or sound, I knew exactly what was going to happen and what to expect. There was no judgment on my fears, they made me feel like I was the most important part. I now am in phase one of three to get my teeth healthy again. But already have my smile and my self confidence back! Today I went by for a quick easy appt. I was NOT scared, NOT nervous! Even the receptionist was considerate to my needs, and allowed me to request a specific nurse. I recommend Dr Scott to anyone especially people with fears. Thank you Carolina dental for making a great experience for me!

Matthew Kormylo
It's hard to find a good dentist. I have used Dr. Kormylo in the past, but now live in Atlanta. I had a cracked tooth that had become infected. I went to a dentist in Atlanta who took x-rays and said the tooth needed a root canal and a crown. After calling around it seemed that it would be almost 3k in total cost. Since it was a serious procedure I decided to drive to Greenville to use Dr. Kormylo. When he looked at the x-rays, he said he thought there was a chance he could save the tooth without a root canal. While he knew he could make a lot more money just performing the root canal, he's such a perfectionist he looked at it like a challenge to save the tooth. The end result was the tooth being repaired without a root canal, and since he repaired it I no longer need a crown. I ended up with a perfect looking tooth at a small fraction of what I expected to pay. While everyone's situation is different, I would highly recommend Dr. Kormylo as he is a perfectionist and clearly has the patient's long-term dental health in mind, rather than just trying to make a quick buck and move on to the next patient(which it seems like most dentists do).

We have been very pleased with Dr. Tom and his staff. They are very timely with their appointments, and Dr. Tom and his staff have done a great job with my daughter's teeth. She will be getting her braces off soon, and she will have a beautiful smile! Dr. Tom had to do some extra work on one of my daughter's teeth in order to get it to turn properly. This was not included in the cost we were originally quoted, but he did not charge us any extra. Dr. Tom's patients are treated as individuals and not just a number and my daughter has really appreciated that. They do a great job of making their patients feel special! We would highly recommend Dr. Tom!

The staff at Precision Dental is amazing. Extremely polite and friendly from the moment I walked in the door. Being new in town, this was my first visit. I was definitely nervous, because I had been with my previous dentist for 12 yrs. Dr. Groce let me know that my previous dentist had been doing a good job (always good to hear!), and I did not think that anything she suggested was unnecessary. I did need to get a couple fillings replaced. But she made this experience relatively pain free. I'm actually considering asking her about replacing others. I'm glad that I gave Precision Dental a try. They have definitely gained a loyal patient.

Dr. Tom and his staff are so amazing! They are always smiling and welcoming, and they really do care about their patients. I really love that Dr. Tom is so generous. He has hosted two amazing patient appreciation days, and he still finds ways to give back. Doctor Tom has an Xbox in the waiting room, free hot chocolate, coffee, or tea, and several prizes that you can enter to win. Dr. Tom and his wonderful staff made my smile so beautiful that I have smiled more than ever, and it's all thanks to his kind and caring hard work and amazing staff. So thank you Dr. Tom and staff, for being the best Orthodontist in the whole world! :)

We just moved here and brought the kids in for the first time there and everyone was nice and friendly but I took pictures of my 4 year old and by this time took a few and no one said a word to me and room full of nurses and then a rude dentist said something to me (not knowing i wasn't allowed ) about taking pictures. After that it made the visit weird and uncomfortable for our first visit . I have been to a lot of dentist who never said about pictures . Parents like to make memories of the first visit somewhere .i know things happen but unsure if we will go back

After having an awful experience at Precision Dental/fka Augusta Street Dental Associates I went to see Dr. Wilson at the recommendation of a friend. I am so happy I did! Not only was he more experienced and knowledgeable but he was also friendly and patient and seems like a genuinely good person who cares about his patients. I was impressed with everything from the comfort and design of the office to the high tech equipment he has available to make your examination as easy and accurate as possible. I fully recommend him to anyone!

This was the only dentist who would accept me as a CHEMO patient and made sure to have a signed release from my oncologist before I could even get any x-rays done. It may be a child's dental office but I sure am glad they cater to a coward like me. The staff are all FANTASTIC, compassionate and very sweet. I drive an hour and a half one way from Flat Rock, NC and wouldn't go any where closer now if I could. I love this office and just wanted everyone else to know how great they all are!

Tips & Advices
  • Pick Your Plan: Most people purchase three main varieties, usually through their employers.
    • An indemnity or fee-for-service plan means you'll have to pay for annual deductibles and co-insurance payments out of pocket.
    • A preferred provider organization is less costly, and you choose from a network of dentists. However, PPOs have some limitations and accompanying deductibles.
    • A dental health maintenance organization plan limits you to just a few choices of dentists, and one doctor handles all of your oral care needs. However, these HMO are usually much less costly.
  • PPO plans and dental HMOs work with only a select number of doctors. While that usually means fewer costs, it also means you have less choice in the dentist who can treat you Before purchasing the plan, you'll receive a list of dentists in each network. From there, you can then pick a plan with doctors who meet your standards and requirements.
  • When picking a plan, you need to look at just how much you'll pay for each and every service. For instance, some plans won't cover your fillings or X-rays, while others may charge more or less for a crown or tooth extraction. You don't want to be caught off-guard by unforeseen charges.
  • If you're truly comfortable with a dentist and you feel he or she can be an ally in your ongoing oral care regimen, then consider signing a plan to just keep that dentist available. That means potentially deal with costs and other insurance-related factors that you might have wanted to. If need be, you might be able to work with the dentist's office to address some of the plan-specific concerns.
  • Ask family, friends or colleagues for recommendations. They will be able to provide details about a dentist's demeanor, operating style and approach to patient care
  • Meet with any prospective dentists to ask about what treatments they perform most often, procedures they're not as familiar with, what accreditation they have or any organizations they belong to and how their offices handles insurance and payments.
  • Consider driving distance, location and office hours.
  • Check With Your State Board: The state board can outline what requirements your dentist must meet and offer information about any discrepancies in the their background and if he or she has faced any disciplinary actions.
  • Remember Your Angles - When brushing your teeth, always place the brush at a 45-degree angle..
  • Don't Forget the Tongue – Your tongue is the largest source of bacteria. Brush it front to back and don't forget the sides.
  • Floss Everyday - Each time you floss, have at least 18 inches of floss available. For optimal control, hold the floss between your thumbs and forefingers.
  • Watch What You Eat - Sugar, alcohol and coffee contain phosphorus. While some can prove beneficial, too much of this chemical can eat away at your teeth and gums.
  • Keep in Mind the Mouthwash - Mouthwash can be helpful if used to supplement proper brushing and flossing. Most mouthwash brands contain chlorine dioxide, a chemical that targets the majority of oral bacterial strains.
Yellow teeth are the result of a number of bad habits, mainly smoking, drinking too much coffee and improper nutrition. Many dentists will treat with a whitening procedure.
These painful bumps are the result of irritation to the soft tissue of your mouth. These sores can make brushing almost impossible. There are a number of different causes for sores, including anemia or a vitamin B-12 deficiency. Your doctor will have to examine the bump, find its cause and then develop a specific treatment plan, including the use of corticosteroids to reduce inflammation or antimicrobial mouthwash.
