Dr. Shelbourne and his staff were amazing. He performed the All-on-4 surgery on my wife and her results were astounding! She now smiles all the time and simply has a better quality of life. Thanks for making such a positive impact on my beautiful wife.

Dr. Shelbourne made my dental implant experience a breeze! His facility in Mt. Pleasant is incredible. Sleek, modern, and the staff treated me like royalty. I was back on my feet the day after surgery with no pain. Thanks S & A!

I wish I could leave a better review, because Dr. Shelbourne and his assistant were perfectly nice. I was able to make an appointment quickly, which was important because I was in a lot of pain. However, neither Dr. Shelbourne nor his staff made referrals or returned phone calls as they promised. I was overcharged for the visit (I was promised a refund of what insurance wouldn't cover), but they refuse to email me for another month because "their accountant likes to do things old school."
Thank you for your feedback. At Shelbourne & Associates, we take great pride in offering an exceptional product and service. We are very sorry for your unsatisfactory experience and take full responsibility for it. As Practice Manager, I will certainly show my entire staff this review and make sure that it never happens again. This feedback will help our practice improve. Email me at Rob@shelbourneface.com and let's work together to get this resolved. Thanks again. Sincerely, Rob

After an accident, I needed to find the most experienced/accomplished oral surgeon in the region. Although I don't live in Charleston, I set about researching credentials & asking friends who were dentists & endodontists who was the best around. Repeatedly Dr. Shelbourne's name came up as the go-to guy in the southeast. I am so glad I took their advice &traveled to Charleston for my bone graft/ implants. Dr. Shelbourne& staff were absolutely wonderful & I am so pleased with the result.

My experience at Shelbourne & Associates could not have been any better. Dr. Shelbourne was on-time, funny, and made my dental implant procedure completely pain-free. Also, his new building in Mt. Pleasant is exquisite! I highly recommend Dr. Shelbourne and the entire team at Shelbourne & Associates!
