Charleston Oral and Facial Surgery Celebrates 15 Years of Making Lowcountry Residents Smile

CHARLESTON, S.C. -- August 2020 marks the fifteenth anniversary of Charleston Oral and Facial Surgery as a cornerstone in the Lowcountry community.

In August 2005, Dr. Edward R. Strauss started the practice in Charleston. Since then, COAFS has expanded with the addition of surgeons. In 2011, Dr. Aaron Sarathy joined the team, followed by Dr. A. Drane Oliphant in 2013 and Dr. D. Graham Lee in 2017. The four doctors practice out of six locations, including Charleston, North Charleston, Summerville, Bluffton, Mount Pleasant and Knightsville.

The oral surgery practice was founded with a commitment to making the highest levels of patient care accessible and convenient. COAFS' state-of-the-art technology, dedication to continuing education and highly trained medical personnel allow the practice to keep up with the latest innovations in a safe, comfortable environment.

"I can't believe how quickly time has flown by," said founding physician Dr. Edward R. Strauss. "It seems like yesterday I was just getting started. It's been an amazing ride, and I look forward to continuing to grow the practice with our amazing team, serving this wonderful community."

Earlier this year, in response to the COVID-19 crisis, Charleston Oral and Facial Surgery remained open for emergency dental needs. It also has implemented virtual appointments in order to give patients the option of speaking with a surgeon in the comfort and safety of home.

The practice specializes in dental implants, wisdom teeth removal, general extractions, implant-supported dentures and immediate smile transformations, to name a few. The doctors and staff also volunteer their time and expertise to various local charities and perform pro-bono surgeries for Lowcountry residents.

Bluffton Resident Gets Something to Smile About

CHARLESTON, S.C. -- Thanks to Charleston Oral and Facial Surgery, one Bluffton resident has something new to smile about. To some, wisdom teeth are a non-factor; to others, they're a nuisance. But to 26-year old Alex Anderson, they were the source of severe pain and necessitated removal.

After having been involved in a bad accident as a child, Anderson has struggled off and on with health issues, including impacted and infected wisdom teeth. Due to his traumatic injury and resulting pain, he was terrified of visiting the dentist until his problems became too big to ignore. It was learning of Anderson's unique story and condition from family dentist Dr. Justin Vanderpool of Hampton Lake Dental Care that prompted Charleston Oral and Facial Surgery to offer assistance - free of charge.

"With Alex's case, we saw a young man who had dealt with serious health issues and needed a hand up," said Aaron Sarathy, DMD, the physician in charge of Anderson's surgery. "It meant a great deal to be able to help someone struggling become pain free and to simultaneously eliminate the associated financial burden."

Wisdom teeth extraction is just one of the many specialties of Charleston Oral and Facial Surgery, which has six Lowcountry-area locations including Bluffton. Earlier this year, the practice did another pro bono surgery - this time for a young Charleston mom - who required the full-arch dental implant procedure.

"Bluffton and the greater area have embraced us so wholeheartedly," said COAFS' Dr. Graham Lee. "So it's important to us to do pro bono work in order to give back to the community that's given so much to us."

Recently, the practice was nominated for two awards: Charleston's Choice and Best of Bluffton for the Best Oral Surgeon category. To learn more about Charleston Oral and Facial Surgery, visit http://www.coafs.com/.

Charleston Mom Receives Brand New Smile for Mother’s Day

CHARLESTON, S.C. -- Just in time for Mother's Day, Charleston Oral and Facial Surgery has helped one Charleston-area woman smile again. Due to years of decay, 31-year old Chelsea Carter was referred to the practice by her dentist, Dr. Kent Griffin, as a prime candidate for guided full-arch dental implants.

As a child, Chelsea wasn't taught about oral hygiene; in fact, she didn't have a toothbrush. The result was a smile Chelsea made a point to cover with her hand when she laughed. She became used to looking away or grinning without showing teeth.

"It definitely brought my confidence down a lot," said Chelsea. "I don't feel beautiful as a mother, I don't feel beautiful as a wife."

Enter Charleston Oral and Facial Surgery and Dr. Edward R. Strauss, who was approached by Chelsea's dentist. Chelsea met Dr. Strauss at their Summerville-Ingleside location for a preliminary meeting during which he told her the good news: The dental-implant procedure would be entirely free of charge.

"Chelsea's story of being a young wife and mother moved us and we wanted to help restore her smile and her confidence," said Edward R. Strauss, DMD, MD.

"We use cutting-edge digital technology to eliminate the guesswork in the full-arch implant procedure, so we knew she would have an absolutely perfect result."

Dr. Strauss utilized the GM system by Neodent, a new generation of implant systems that boasts high-level engineering. The surgery went seamlessly, and when Chelsea woke up, she had a brand new smile.

"Now I can look at people and be confident...it definitely boosted my self-esteem a lot," Chelsea said. "They turned me into a confident, strong woman that I knew I was always meant to be for my kids."

Charleston Oral and Facial Surgery is committed to pro bono cases and has remained open during the COVID-19 crisis to treat emergent dental cases. With six Lowcountry-area locations, they are open and ready to serve the people of Charleston with both in-person and virtual appointments.

Charleston Oral and Facial Surgery in South Carolina to Remain Open During COVID-19 Crisis

CHARLESTON, S.C. -- While many dental practices are choosing to close due to the coronavirus (COVID-19), Charleston Oral and Facial Surgery will remain open to treat patient dental emergencies.

Charleston, Summerville, Mt. Pleasant, Bluffton and Knightsville. It's just another way COAFS cares about the Lowcountry community.

Hand sanitizer is available in all COAFS waiting rooms and masks are available for patients at the front desk upon request. It is the practice's standard protocol to sanitize all surfaces of patient rooms and surgical suites with medical-grade cleaner before and after every single patient treatment.
