2 years after having my mini implants installed they failed. It cost me 8000.00 to have them removed and a new jaw bone grafted in. Mini implants are doomed to fail especially when used in back teeth. I urge anyone thinking of allowing Dr. Joe to place mini implants in their mouths to first do your research. Go to the Charleston county clerk of court's website and discover for yourself the truth about this doctors record. You can search lawsuits files. The list is astonishing. Run don't walk!

An incredible, sincere, outrageously experienced implant specialist. I have had 6 and am due for 4 more. He also did the most beautiful crowns on my uppers, cant wait for the lowers !! Thank you! His staff is just as special.

Why Does Experience Matter?

Even specialists specialize. One orthopedic surgeon might do nothing but hip surgeries, while another does nothing but knees. If you want the best possible care, it’s critical to match your medical need with the doctor who truly specializes in treating it.

Dr. Gillespie's Care Philosophy

At the Dental Implant Center, We provide Comprehensive Dental Care from routine Hygiene check ups, Tooth colored Fillings, up to Root Canals, All Ceramic Crowns and Cosmetic Dentistry.  Dr. Joe Gillespie's particular passion is Dental Implants: with a focus on Minimally Invasive Small Diameter Implants.  He uses the latest advancements in Implant Therapy combined with the Most Affordable Care to replace single missing teeth, multiple missing teeth or quadrant dentistry.  We are particularly proud of the full arch option where using small diameter implants the entire arch can be restored.  We have several options to fix a full arch of missing teeth.  We can use a minimum of 4 on the lower and 6 Mini Implants on the upper to restore the arch all 16 teeth with a hybrid denture for prices starting at $4000.00 with financing optional.  Other more permanent options involve using additional implants on both arches to offer Fixed Cemented acrylic teeth or Ceramic Bridges either cemented or snap retained in the mouth.  Think YOUR Teeth again like you were 18 years old!  Dr. Joe Teaches and Lectures Domestically and Internationally on Small Diameter Implants and has taught thousands of his student dentists over the past decade all over the world.  Just ask yourself, who do you prefer as your Dental Provider the student or the TEACHER?!

We are also Proud to welcome our new Associate Dr. Manning Lloyd to the office.  She is a local USC undergraduate and MUSC Dental Graduate.  She joined us in Spring of 2014 and offers all manner of General, Family, and Cosmetic dentistry.  She does excellent work with tooth colored Resin Fillings, Ceramic Crowns, Veneers and even Root Canals.

Both Dentists and our Entire Staff Look forward to meeting you.
