I just moved to St Aug & was very nervous about having my wisdom teeth removed as 3 were sideways & it was my first surgery ever. Dr. Nate was very thorough in my consultation, Joni & Melissa were very welcoming & I knew I had found my new Dentist office! I had a few questions prior to my surgery & Joni took my calls & was very helpful. The day of my surgery (yesterday) I was extremely nervous. When I arrived, they made sure I felt comfortable. Melissa was amazing, very personable & sweet during my appt. My fiancé waited for me in the lobby & they kept him updated during the procedure. He was floored by the incredible bed side manner they shown him & is still talking about how great they were. After the surgery, my face was not nearly as swollen as I assumed & I woke up today feeling great. I cannot believe how well my surgery went & how fast I felt back to normal. I owe it all to the staff at All About Smiles. Thank you guys so much for easing my nerves & making my experience so easy!

This is my primary dentist and yes, I don't live in St Augustine. We visit there several times a year and I have my dental work done while in town, specifically to see these guys. Work is done well, done quickly and they are much, much affordable than the dentist I have uses here. I have to say, finding a good dentist has been a bit of a challenge for me (I have had extensive work done with implants over the years) but I have no doubts that they will do what needs to be done, without trying to "upsell" me at every appointment. Highly recommended!

I love this dentist! This is the first dentist office that I like going to. They explain what's going on instead of just handing you a bill. I've had a bunch of cleanings and a couple of fillings done. I haven't had any pain and they are always on time. Finally someone who doesn't always run late! I think that this is the best dentist in town.

Best dentist visit of my life! Kelly and Jessica up front were very welcoming to myself and my daughter. I had an emergency, and they saw me right away. They even had toys and shows to occupy my daughter. I would definitely be recommending him to everyone.

Staff are friendly and courteous. I got a crown put on and the protocol for removal of old filling plus the procedures employed were impeccable. I would highly recommend this doctor and his staff.

Very friendly staff, nice facility set in a very natural environment, very professional in all they do.
Tips & Advices
  • If a tooth decays and the nerves or pulp (soft internal tissue which helps teeth develop) become inflamed or infected
  • If a tooth is cracked or broken and nerves are exposed
This generally depends on any specific issues you wish to address with your teeth. There are toothpastes designed to whiten teeth, fight cavities, decrease sensitivity, prevent bad breath, resist gingivitis, and those specific to children (with lower fluoride content). There are also toothpastes that offer “complete” protection by combining aspects of many of the above toothpastes.
It’s recommended to get a professional cleaning at least two times per year.
  • Desensitizing toothpaste numbs the nerves in the teeth that can cause discomfort.
  • Mouth guard can protect against grinding teeth during sleep.
  • Fluoride treatment can be applied by dentists to sensitive areas to numb teeth and strengthen enamel.
  • Root canal can treat problems in a tooth’s core.
  • Surgical gum graft where a piece of gum tissue is removed from a section of the mouth to cover an exposed root.
Not everyone needs to have their wisdom teeth removed, but there are certain signs that can help you and your doctor determine if yours should be:
  • Wisdom teeth are pushing other teeth around, causing pain and misalignment
  • Cysts form around newly emerged wisdom teeth, causing jaw damage
  • Gums get inflamed and swollen, causing cavities and pain
  • Doctor determine from x-rays that wisdom teeth will cause problems in the near future
