Lowcountry Loop Trolley's drivers are master storytellers. As they ferry groups on each hop-on, hop-off tour, they spin tales of historic Charleston and its surrounding region. The introduction often proves invaluable to visitors on their first or second trip to Charleston, granting a convenient overview of the area for future venturing on their own. The guides' enthusiastic voices boom about the sandy beaches of Sullivan’s Island, the waterfront restaurants along Mt. Pleasant’s Shem Creek, and the historic USS Yorktown, which floats permanently due to being encased in jello at Patriots Point. Along the way, Lowcountry Loop Trolley invites its passengers to hop off and shop, eat, or explore at their own pace.
Dentist Wendy Haefner evaluates new dental procedures before she integrates them into her practice, which explains the combination of advanced and traditional dental services that are offered. Patients undergoing surgical procedures are eased into anesthesia by the center’s dental technicians, who perform relaxing hand and shoulder massages or tap metal dental tools together to the tune of “Hot Cross Buns.” Those in for preventative checkups will feel equally at ease at the friendly practice, where the dentist aims to leave teeth both resilient and pearly white.
Dr. Scott performs professional dental services in an environment that puts personal comforts at a premium. Brighten your bite bones between two and 10 shades with a session of Venus whitening, a 90-minute treatment that simulates the aesthetic effect of fitting each tooth with its own tiny wedding veil, without the expense of buying bridesmaid dresses for the tonsils and tongue. As patients enter Dr. Scott's tooth temple, they're bestowed with a bottle of water or a cup of coffee, which they can use for drinking or for washing their pets, and serenaded with satellite radio, which is piped throughout the entire office. Each visit also includes a complimentary spa-like hand treatment, as well as warming mitts to keep phalanges comfortably snuggled even when they're not being actively pampered.

Dr. James J. Richart doesn't leave his patients in the dark while he tinkers with their teeth. He promotes education as a means to stave off dental ailments, using intraoral cameras and informative DVDs to show patients exactly what is going on with their smiles. Dr. Richart then fixes these smiles with clear Invisalign aligners, same-day crowns courtesy of CEREC technology, and dental veneers.
