Dr. Jim Raman, Dr. Misti Raman, Dr. John Patangan and Dr. Karen Wurster, along with the team at Irmo Smiles, are pleased to provide a full range of dental care services and dental treatments to our patients in Columbia, Irmo, Lexington, and the surrounding South Carolina communities. We are honored to have been voted 2018 Best Cosmetic Dentist and to have been nominated as 2019 Best Adult Dentist, Best Cosmetic Dentist and Best Orthodontist.
Our patient-centered practice caters to our patients’ every need. We will provide dental and orthodontic treatments for children and adults that use the latest technology to ensure comfort and excellent quality of care. Our goal for your experience here combines excellent care in a place where you can forget you’re at the dentist or orthodontist.
Our Promises to Our Patients
We Will Only Perform Procedures That You Honestly Need
We treat our patients like family. That means only doing the treatments we would want for ourselves and our loved ones. It is our goal to be your partner in long-term dental and orthodontic health, and to help you prevent problems rather than have to fix them.
We Will Stay Up to Date with the Latest Technology
Our doctors have an unyielding commitment to provide our patients with the most current, proven techniques, and attend extensive continuing education to stay on the cutting edge of technology. Our use of digital imaging and X-rays reduces exposure to radiation and provides our patients with a more comfortable, healthier visit.
We Will Give You a Clear Financial Estimate
Before treating you, we will be happy to provide a pre-treatment estimate to tell you how much the treatment will cost, what portion your insurance will cover, and what your financial responsibility will be (upon request). We understand how uncomfortable financial “surprises” can be and will do all we can to avoid such miscommunications.
Your Safety Is Our Priority
We comply with all SC DHEC sterilization standards to ensure your safety.
Your Visit Will Be as Pain-Free as Possible
We will do everything we can to make your visit as pain-free as possible. Irmo Smiles utilizes the latest technology to minimize the discomfort in every facet of your care. For your comfort, we offer warm cookies, water, coffee, and tea while you’re waiting. Each operatory has its own television with headphones, so you can choose your entertainment during treatment.
