iSmile Mathis Ferry Dentistry is a family-run and family-focused holistic dental practice. The family feel is evident as soon as one enters their Mt. Pleasant office. There is a warmth and friendliness that put one at ease, always a good thing when visiting the dentist!

Dr. Wendy Haefner works with her husband, Andrew Haefner, who is the business manager at the office. The two met in the summer when Dr. Wendy was an undergrad at Case Western Reserve University, in Ohio. They both are originally from Rochester, New York. Andrew was a tennis pro and that is what brought them to Charleston. Dr. Wendy joined him after graduating, but then left for dental school at the University of Buffalo, where she graduated cum laude in June of 2007. She returned after completion and worked for a different dental office in the lowcountry before starting iSmile Mathis Ferry Dentistry five years ago.

They love the Charleston area for the sunshine and the quality of life, and are happy to be raising their two boys—Dylan, 6, and Hudson, 3—here. They are likely to be found playing tennis, riding bikes or working in the garden during their off time.

Dr. Wendy is very meticulous and takes obvious pride in what she does. She thoroughly researches every material and technique before offering them to her patients. She loves continuing education and keeps up with all the advances in her field.

Dr. Wendy says she treats the mouth and oral cavity, but it is always with the whole person in mind. “We work to get beyond the symptom and address the cause.”

As a holistic practice, they offer only mercury-safe removal following all protocol with the IAOMT (International Academy of Oral Medicine and Toxicology) and use only biocompatible materials. They offer BPA-free composite fillings. These fillings are made of silicon oxide, which is free of BPA (bisphenol A) and mercury.  

They treat the whole family and have an affinity for working with kids. “We work to make the visits fun,” says Dr. Wendy. Children are asked about their favorite things, and if a filling is needed they might just end up with a princess or Pokémon filling. They offer quick appointments to make it easier on the kids.

iSmile has state-of-the-art equipment in the office. They offer ozone therapy, CEREC same-day crowns and the newest X-ray machine that offers low radiation exposure.

Ozone therapy has several applications. Ozonated water is used in all procedures and all rooms. They have successfully treated sinus issues with ozone gas. Ozone therapy has been successful in fighting gum disease since it gets under the gums to kill the bacteria. It also helps regulate the immune system and decrease inflammation.

They also offer sleep apnea appliances for patients. The SnorNoMor appliance has had good results with reducing and eliminating snoring and mild-to-moderate sleep apnea. SnorNoMor is a great noninvasive, Food and Drug Administration-approved option to help those who snore (and their spouses) to get a good night’s sleep. Some signs of sleep apnea include loud snoring, feeling tired during the day and high blood pressure. Very few people even realize they have it.

I Smile Mathis Ferry Dentistry will start offering Healthy Start devices later this summer. These are appliances children wear at night to help develop their airway, aid in jaw development, potentially prevent the need for braces and help alleviate allergies. They may also help with several issues related to the inability to sleep and attention deficit hyperactivity disorder.

Dr. Wendy and iSmile Mathis Ferry Dentistry take pride in providing dental needs to the whole family.

I Smile Mathis Ferry Dentistry is located at 1571 Mathis Ferry Rd., in Mt. Pleasant. For more information or to make an appointment, call 843-884-1215 or visit
