Royal Crest Centre for Advanced Dentistry
Sleep through your entire dental visit and awaken to the smile of your dreams! Did you know Dr. Marcello is one of only a few general dentists in South Carolina, and in the United States, who has the training to offer you sedation dentistry? Sedation dentistry is a safe and effective means of achieving complex dental treatment in one appointment through monitored anesthesia care. You can finally get all of your dental work done in one visit with no anxiety, no pain, and no memory of the procedure. One appointment sedation dentistry is perfect for adults or children afraid of the dentist office or for those too busy to come to multiple dental visits. Don’t let your fear of the dentist office stop you from getting your much needed dentistry done. IV sedation is quickly becoming a popular way for people to have dentistry done; and by word of mouth, this method has made Dr. Marcello one of the most sought after dentists in South Carolina by both patients and his dental colleagues!
As a result of Dr. Marcello’s popularity in administering IV sedation to treat many of his patients, he has observed firsthand the growing demand for treating very medically compromised patients, young children, and needle phobics. He realized there is a significant need for the most advanced sedation possible-sedation techniques that are unique to general dental offices and methods to reduce anxiety not being offered. Dr. Marcello spent a few years seeking out a very unique and rare team of specialists to add to the practice, therefore, he has sought out the expertise of both Medical Anesthesiologists (Medical Doctors) and Certified Nurse Anesthetists, to create the most comprehensive dental practice team in the nation. We truly can offer a remarkable dental experience not found anywhere else where you can sleep comfortably and deeply while you receive your dental treatment, are monitored by a medical doctor which is important if you have multiple medical issues, and we can offer a TRUE no needle experience if you are afraid of dental needles in your mouth or intravenous needles.
Dr. Marcello and his staff are trained to help people with special needs and anxiety which make it difficult to get their dental work done. If you are one of these patients, know that we are here to help you and we appreciate the courage it took for you to come in and see us today. Relax and know that you have come to a place with people who understand.
Dr. Marcello is also one of the providers for the largest amount of Special Needs patients in South Carolina. So many times this patient group does not get the dental care they need in the home or at other dental offices for various reasons, and we have methods of keeping up with the care of these patients on a routine basis. IV sedation is a great way to make them feel comfortable during their dental visit and not be afraid of the dentist. All of the work needed can be performed in one visit, which is convenient as well, and Medicaid of SC recognizes Dr. Marcello’s procedure and covers the IV sedation!
For our General Dentistry patients, do you have multiple cavities or multiple other issues and just don’t have time to keep coming back to the dentist to get the work done? It is possible that we can get your mouth healthy fixing those issues-- and even perform bleaching and place veneers under sedation in one appointment. You’ll wake up and have the smile you always wanted in one visit! Moms who have a child with multiple dental concerns love the one appointment visit as their child misses less school and is not afraid of the dentist, since sedation can offer a better experience.
General dentists and specialists routinely refer Dr. Marcello their patients to put them to sleep to have their dental work done. Some dentists claim to offer “sleep dentistry”, but be careful with what that means and realize that because Dr. Marcello is the only dentist in the Upstate to treat all of your dental needs while you sleep, he is in high demand. The closest IV sedation dentists to us who practice comprehensive care are in Sumter, Charlotte, and Atlanta.

“I had put off my dental work for several years due to my fear and anxiety of the pain and discomfort I might experience. After discussing conscious sedation with Dr. Marcello and his staff, I felt much more comfortable with having the work done. My procedure went wonderfully and I would definitely recommend sedation dentistry for anyone but especially for those who have fears of getting dental work done.” -A.H.
“The best way to describe it is amazing. I went to sleep and in what seemed like only five minutes it, was over without any anxiety. I would definitely recommend it for anyone that is nervous, apprehensive, or just plain chicken like me.” -M.F.
“Sedation dentistry is an option I didn’t know was available until now. The sedation got rid of a lot of fears I had of the dental procedures. There were no worries or anxiety. With this you are in and out with no complications. When it’s all over, you’re ready to leave and everything is fixed. I would highly recommend IV sedation.” -D.B.
“As a child, I went to see the dentist regularly but had a bad experience as an adult. At the age of forty –three, my teeth started hurting so bad that I had to have something done. Dr. Marcello mentioned IV sedation because of my anxiety. When I arrived at his office, I was scared but his staff was very nice. The sedation didn’t hurt, and I didn’t have any problems. I would recommend IV sedation to anyone. My whole attitude has changed since seeing Dr. Marcello and his staff. I can now walk into his office without panicking. The staff treats you as a person. I have learned to feel at home when I am at the dentist.” -C.L.
“Recently I had the opportunity to have intensive work done on my teeth by you (Dr. Marcello). At the time I had great fear of going to the dentist office but was told by one of your patients that there was little to no pain involved; and to my utmost surprise I found this to be true. Allow me to list the treatment plan that was completed in two visits to your office. Work completed was 1 root canal, 3 same day crowns, periodontal scaling on top and bottom both sides and several fillings. During the first treatment I asked for a prescription pain medicine. I felt with so much work completed I would be in pain once the novacaine wore off. To my amazement I was pain free later on. I did not have to use my prescription. The same pain free experience happened after the second visit. I cannot begin to explain how much fear I had in the beginning. Now I can say I will not hesitate to make regular visits to you for my teeth and gum treatments. Also your office group and technicians are so friendly and helpful that you feel you are visiting old friends. Please continue the good work in helping others who fear the trip to a dentist office.” –P.B.
“I would like to thank all of the Staff and Doctors for making my experience a very pleasant one. I can finally smile again. I admit I was scared but everyone made me feel comfortable like I was deserving and I appreciate that from the bottom of my heart. Royal Crest is the nicest and best dentist I’ve ever been to. Thank you! “ –BB
“I was traumatized by my first dentist as a small child. I was very frightened by him. That left me very anxious about any further dental visits to start with. Later, when I needed dental work, other dentists that I did go to said they wouldn’t hurt me, well, they did! It was always an awful, painful experience. After letting my dental health go untreated, they only got worse until I started losing them. I had to get them fixed. So hearing of the services offered here at Royal Crest, I finally made an appointment with Dr. Marcello. The news wasn’t good. ALL of my teeth needed work on them or extracted. I was horrified and scared! Everyone here at Royal Crest was kind, gentle and comforting and it really helped me to keep my courage up. When I called to ask questions, I received kind and patient responses. The day of the procedures I was so nervous even knowing I would be put to sleep. After the IV was put in, I went to sleep and never felt anything. I woke up feeling a little sleepy and went home and slept awhile. Later I was happily surprised that it didn’t hurt that bad. What a relief!” –L.H.
“In the past I had a root canal done at a local dentist office. I was very nervous and I also have to be deadened more than most. The dentist there didn’t use enough so he began to drill and I moved causing the dentist to lose control of the drill causing a lot of pain. He got mad at me as if it were my fault, he treated me badly, needless to say this made me afraid and nervous from that point on until I visited your office. I was treated very well and it made me feel comfortably. With the three root canals I received plus the Lumineers I am happy and pleased. I thank you ALL very much.” –J.G.
“Having a child with Autism can be difficult with everyday activities. However, when you face something like having to put crowns on his teeth, well that is just a little overwhelming. But thanks to you and your staff, we got through it and it really wasn’t so bad. I appreciate the way in which you handled my son, and of course his dental work as well. His teeth are beautiful, and he is actually proud of them. I couldn’t have asked for a better situation. I wish there were more people in the world like you. I just wanted to take a minute to say THANKS to you and your staff. We really do appreciate it!!” -L.N.
Before coming to Royal Crest Centre I had terrible experiences with dental office visits. My experiences were so bad that I didn’t’ want to go for any dental visits. After meeting with the doctors and staff at Royal Crest I was beginning to get a little more comfortable but I was still scared. I was put to sleep to have my teeth crowned and wisdom teeth taken out. When I woke up I had very little pain from the extractions and healed very easily. My follow-ups were pain and worry free. Thank you for a beautiful smile and wonderful experience. –J.O.
Royal Crest Centre for Advanced Dentistry is a great dental office! Everybody here has a great attitude towards all their patients. Starting with the ladies at the front desk that make convenient appointments, to the wonderful dentist and assistants. They do a great job weather its medical or personal, especially Kristy J. I just wanted to thank them for doing a great job and recommend this office to everybody! Keep up the good work! - Y.S.
“Dr. Marcello, We thank you very much for the services you performed on our son’s teeth. It is nice to know that there is still someone who takes pride and care in their patients no matter what kind of insurance we have to have for the time being. You are very much appreciated. Thank you. “-D.P.
This has been my first appointment at this office and I am one who is terrified of Dentists as my x-rays and consult show. So far the whole going to the dentist experience has been far better than anywhere else I have been. I started my dental care in Connecticut, then West Virginia and now South Carolina. So far I have had more of a relaxing experience than I have ever had in the past. The people are very pleasant and the atmosphere very calming. -B.S.
My son had a good experience. He didn’t cry or get upset and that means a lot. We have had to go to lots of doctors in his life and to go to a Dentist that puts his mind at ease is a blessing. I plan for my younger children to start coming. -D.B.
Your office is full of good people. But God made Dr. Ryan a wonderful and caring person. My trips there were the most wonderful experience with a dentist I have ever had. I believe God puts the right people in a person’s life and that’s how I feel about your office and Dr. Ryan. He is a wonderful, caring person and I have told many people about him. Thank you so much for a great experience and may God Bless each and every one of you. -J.D.
Anxious No More! Thanks to Dr. Marcello and his great staff. I am anxious no more about going to the Dentist. FINALLY a Dentist that cares enough to provide an atmosphere that eliminates the worry and stress of going to the Dentist and also performs excellent work. Dr. Marcello and the entire staff are friendly, understanding and most importantly knowledgeable. Thanks to you all and I look forward to my future visits! -P.L.
I came to Royal Crest because I have not had any Dental treatment, exams or work since 2004 when I left the Army. I heard about Royal Crest on a news story that was reporting that Royal Crest was helping those who are unemployed and /or had no dental insurance. I would like to just say thanks. It is hard to get any treatment with out insurance and I believe that dental health is important. I have just not had the finances to make it a priority. Thanks once again! -J.D.
My son was going to a dentist in Walhalla. A good friend of mine told me about Royal Crest. I took my son there and he needed a root canal. They did the best job on my son. I thank them very much. If you have children that need teeth cleaned, fixed or anything else, please take them to Royal Crest. Your child is in the best hands ever. I know-- I take my son. -L.J.
My son, who is 11 years old, had a very bad experience with another dentist. I was referred to Dr. Marcello and fell in love with him and his staff. Bedside manner is very important when it comes to your child and these guys have that. Not to mention, my son has pain-free, beautiful teeth. -S.
I saw where Dr. Marcello would help people without insurance and this is my first visit and everyone has been really nice. Thank you! I never knew coming to the Dentist could be so enjoyable. -J.S.
In the past my 7 year old had a bad experience with a Dentist. He feels at ease here. He had a root canal and Dr. Bob was great! He sat in the floor and talked to him instead of over him. He made him feel important. Everyone here is great with kids. Thanks! -M.S.
I have been very please with the services provided. Too many doctors either refuse to see you or offer lesser quality services if you have no insurance. I did not have that experience here! Everyone was kind, patient and professional. I was treated with respect, everything was explained. For once I felt like I was the important one—not my insurance company. Yet when I had payment questions, it was handled with understanding and professionalism. -J.R.
From the moment you walk in the door, the staff of Royal Crest is very friendly, always having a smile on their faces. Today I came in the office for my son to have dental work. He had broken a tooth in the front ice skating and he needed to have a root canal and crown. He was really at ease when he went back for the IV Sedation and I am so happy because we have had a bad experience in the past with other dentists. Now he is at ease and happy. Thank You. -J.A.
Our grandchild is a special needs child. He needs the special kind of treatment that he receives in your facility. We are grateful to Dr. Marcello and all his staff for the kind treatment that he receives here. Thank you very much. -E.
This is my first visit to the office. I was referred by my son’s dentist who told me how wonderful this dentist practice is. When I was here with my son, I noticed the Stimulus flyer on the desk. My husband had just got laid off from work and both my husband and I have been having dental problems. I made an appointment with the practice not only because of the stimulus package, because I am a big chicken... -C.A.
The staff is great. The T.V. is a good experience that I have not had. I like the music and the x-ray. I like that they have small things to put in the mouth so it does not hurt. The office and the rooms are very clean. -J.D.
This office and its personnel are great! They are really kind people. The office has a homey feel. I like this better than any other dentist I have been to. -S. P.
WE SUPPORT OUR TROOPS! Dr. Marcello was asked by the ARMY to see troops who were getting ready to deploy to Iraq starting in 2001, and since then we have seen more than 1000 troops. Prior to having civilian doctors seeing these troops, many of them would have teeth pulled if they had even a simple cavity as they would not have means of treatment where they were stationed. Having dental issues is not an option for these people and they can’t have time wasted on someone being off the line of duty because of teeth that are hurting and wasting time during active duty trying to get the soldier to a place where they can be treated. The Armed Services know that we have equipment that allows us to get their personnel deployable in one appointment and they have appreciated that they can send multiple people at a time to us and we will take care of their needs quickly. We worked many weekends during the beginning of the Iraq War and enjoyed meeting everyone; and, it was quite a site to have our parking lot full of Hum-V’s. Many soldiers returned to the United States wanting their teeth cleaned as they said sand got in their teeth alot. We sent one group toothbrushes, toothpaste, floss, and handwarmers. Here is a letter from one of the Marines we sent a care package to:
Dear Doctor Marcello and Staff,
How are you guys doing? I am doing pretty well here. I wanted to write to you and thank you for the package you sent. Thanks to you, my entire platoon now has cleaner, whiter teeth. Haha. But seriously thank you very much. The gloves and hand warmers especially came in handly. The weather here is pretty nice finally. It goes form about 70’s during the day to 50’s at night, so that’s not too bad, just windy all of the time. Well, I am leaving in a couple weeks so we are pretty excited. I hope you all are doing great and thank you so much for your support.” Lance Corporal Kyle “Devildog” Bridge, US Marines
