Preventive Dentistry

Although dentistry can treat a variety of oral health problems, truly the best way to keep your teeth healthy is prevention. Combining good at-home habits with regular dental check-ups is a winning strategy for maintaining a lifelong healthy smile.

Keeping Your Smile Safe

When it comes to the oral health of you and your family, having dental problems treated right away is very important – but wouldn’t it be even better if we could help you stop those problems from happening in the first place? At Godley Station Dental, our team’s dedication to preventive care can make that goal a reality for patients of all ages. The doctors and hygienists at GSD provide in-depth check-ups, refreshing hygiene, and other services designed to protect natural teeth and help them last for years to come. 

We recommend that patients of all ages attend at least two wellness exams and cleanings a year. Even those who brush and floss diligently fall victim to dental problems that linger under the surface and out of sight – these visits allow our team to provide professional maintenance and locate even the smallest concerns before they have a chance to cause significant damage.

What we provide

Preventive  Care

Wellness Exam

Our doctors will perform a thorough dental wellness exam to examine for any decay, gum disease, debris, problem areas, or potential problem areas. We recommend an exam every 6 months to identify and prevent oral health issues.

Comprehensive Cleaning

Our hygienists will perform a comprehensive cleaning which removes potentially dangerous plaque and build up from your teeth and gums. They will use a variety of instruments to remove all plaque and buildup above and below your gum line. They will also discuss your home care routine as well. If you suffer from sensitivity - fluoride treatments are highly recommended.

iTero Scan

After completion of the wellness exam and comprehensive cleaning our hygienists will do a detailed iTero scan of your full mouth which will allow for you to see your mouth in a whole new 3d way and make treatment planning, discussions, and decisions that much easier.

Fluoride Treatment

The ADA (American Dental Association) recommends that all patients receive regular fluoride treatments, as such this has become a standard of care here at GSD. Fluoride is a natural mineral that builds strong teeth and prevents cavities. It supports healthy tooth enamel and fights the bacteria that harm teeth and gums.

Oral cancer Screening

An Oral cancer screening is an examination performed by our hygienists to look for signs of cancer or precancerous conditions in your mouth. The goal of an oral cancer screening is to identify mouth cancer early - when there is a greater chance for treatment. Our team utilizes goccles and harmless blue light technology to detect these early signs of cancer.


X-Rays are useful for viewing jawbones and various tooth structures. They can find and image cavities, bone or gum loss, periodontal disease, benign or malignant tumors, and other normal or abnormal structures within the lower portion of the head. In children and adolescents, they are also useful for finding un-erupted permanent teeth and imaging root structures. At Godley Station Dental we utilize digital X-ray technology for all patient X-rays as they provide a higher quality image for examination will producing 80% less radiation. Digital X-rays are also safer for the environment as no chemicals are required for their development. We also offer cone beam x-rays that produce 3D images.

Periodontal therapy

Periodontal therapy is a type of conservative or non-surgical treatment for gum disease. It consists of scaling, root planing, and in some cases medication.

Sealants are a thin, plastic coating painted on the chewing surfaces of teeth -- usually the back teeth (the premolars and molars) that have deep grooves -- to prevent tooth decay.

Night Guards

Majority of the population clinches or grinds their teeth at night leading wear, cracks, and abfractions (notch on the front side of tooth). Night guards are a fantastic way to combat this. Each appliance is custom fitted by our team to achieve maximum comfort and wearability. Night guards are a great way to protect against bruxism as well.

From the minute I walk into your office, I am treated very kindly. Welcomed with a warn smile and a calming atmosphere. I have had anxiety all my life about going to the dentist, and didn't go for years. Godley Station Dental made the work I've had done very easy. There is never a wait, and everyone is comforting. Katie took good care of me today just like all the others have done. She went the extra mile to make me feel comfortable and cared for. Dr. Hatch is an amazing dentist. The work she has done on my teeth is perfect and amazing. She saved two of my teeth! I have been shown everything and it's been explained thoroughly. I can't remember the name of the person who does my cleanings, but she us also kind, thorough and amazing. Sorry I forgot her name but she deserves a mention. The estimates I have gotten in advance of my dental work is always accurate. No hidden fees. I am quite pleased with all the services they provide. Thank you Godley Station Dental, keep up the friendly and professional work!

Entering the building I was greeted with a sense of comfort and loved the amazing set up, it smelled delightful and Cindy signed me in, she was very sweet. Then I was introduced to Erin which was my dental hygienist. She was incredibly comforting and made me feel like I was talking to a lifelong friend, she told me about my teeth in a tone I understood and was very vocal about what would be happening next. Then I was introduced to the VERY handsome Dr. Patel who confirmed everything Erin so generously informed me of before. I have to have my wisdoms removed and both Dr. Patel and Erin reassured me that I would be okay, which was very comforting. When it was time to get set up for my appointment I got the pleasure of meeting the wonderful Wendy, we went over all the appointments I had in the future and we even took a picture to capture the first of many appointments. I got to meet another amazing staff member, Brittany, which she was full of energy and I loved meeting her too. The energy here was amazing and I loved speaking with everyone I met. I would recommend my toothless grandmother to this dentist just so she would have the pleasure of getting the service I experienced today.

Hygienist Yvette, Dr. Fetters, and Ms. Wendy took amazing care of me during my 6 month cleaning! My toddler was with me and we somehow managed to fit everything into the visit. The office is beautiful and clean. Reception is extremely sweet and accommodating. I used to work in a dental clinic and these people are definitely doing it right. I cannot recommend them enough!

Michelle was fantastic! She was sympathetic towards my discomfort during my procedure, and she anticipated my needs. She kept me informed as the appointments progressed, and I so appreciated her care. Thank you, Michelle!Dr. Hatch put me at ease with her friendly, understanding approach to dentistry! She made sure I was comfortable throughout my appointments, as well as if I felt great with the finished look from my dental treatment. Thank you, Dr. Hatch!Molly Thomas

Erin was wonderful with my daughter, she gave us so much information that made me feel very comfortable with the way forward for her care. Cindy at the front desk is so helpful! She gave my daughter a warm blanket to snuggle in while we waited! Wonderful service!

Dr. Patel and Michelle are awesome! I love them as much I love Dr. Allen and Leah! They make coming to the dentist easy. Dr. Patel goes above and beyond for his patients and he truly cares about you. I wish that every doctor had such compassion. I am so grateful to him. If you want to have an amazing dental experience and be treated right then go see the folks at Godley Station. I would highly recommend them! I would give them 10 stars if I could.

Dental offices make me anxious in general. I came in as a new patient at Godley Station Dental yesterday. I’m happy to say that I had a great first impression. From the clean and well decorated lobby to their knowledgeable and warm staff. Yvette was my hygienist. She took such good care of me, answered all my questions, ensured I was comfortable the entire time. I got a sense that they have a healthy work culture as they were very complimentary and respectful of each other’s skills and backgrounds. Thank you for the wonderful service y’all provide.

Best place in town! I even take my 9 year old here and they are amazing! Dr. Fetters, Dr. Patel, Katie and Wendy all are amazing. They made sure my child could ask as many questions to make him feel comfortable. As soon as you walk through the door, everyone is so nice and welcoming.

Today was my first visit and I couldn’t have had a better experience. The atomosphere is beautiful and welcoming, the staff are all very sweet and greet you with a smile as soon as you walk in. I had Courtney as my hygienist and by the end of my appointment I was ready to move my schedule around just so I can see her again next time! She made me forget I was even at the dentist with great conversation and laughs. She is very personable and I you can tell she enjoys what she does! Super pleased with my choice to come to Godley Station Dental.

For someone who despises dentists, struggles with follow up appointments, extreme dental anxiety, and overall uncomfortable going to a dentist I could not have been more pleased with my visit. I was treated with kindness and respect from beginning to end. Check in was easy and smooth with great customer service. I met with Wendy to do financial things first. She was awesome and went the extra mile trying to figure out my insurance. She then had me meet with Kristina the Hygienist who was fantastic with me. She provided step by step instructions on what is happening and will be taking place during this visit. She educated me on several items noticed in the X-rays before the Dr. came to the room to discuss a treatment plan. Kristina also made me feel welcome, comfortable, reduced my anxiety, and did not make me feel embarrassed about my current situation. Dr. Fetters came in to start his consultation process. Before even opening my mouth for him to look he explained what he was going to do, listened to all of my concerns, answered all my questions, and then put a treatment plan in place. While doing all of this he also did not make me feel embarrassed about my current situation. He also provided a wealth of education on what my future will be and how he is very confident that I will be feeling great about my teeth along with bringing my smile back. I will be recommending them to anyone who needs a dentist. THANK YOU!!! (Yes I am looking forward to the long process of getting back to normal)

This morning, I had my first visit with Godley Station Dental. From reception, to my exam and the checkout process, everyone was so kind, helpful and answered any questions and concerns I had. Courtney, my hygienist was so personable and made me feel right at home! She was very detailed and helped me address any dental concerns I had. A big thank you to Wendy as well, who helped with all of my silly insurance questions and setting up a treatment plan. I'm looking forward to my future visits at Godley Station Dental with Dr. Fetters and team. Would highly recommend!

I was pleasantly impressed with the beginning to the end. The customer service including from my first phone call with Michelle to Wendi for admission at the time of the appointment (which was on schedule). Then I saw the X-ray technician Sylvia or Sophia and then Dr. Fetters. Everyone was so professional and attentive. Dr. Fetters actually sat down and took the time to answer all of my questions and actually explained everything. I felt heard and listened to. I did not feel rushed on shuffled like a number. They were helpful to my needs and made me feel relaxed. I’m thankful I chose Godley Dental Station. They set the bar pretty high! Ursula received my payment and took care of my paperwork in a timely fashion. I will recommend this great place to family and friends. Five stars!

Whoever runs this place is a genius. They have all the latest tech, the people (especially my hygienist Yvette) are all fantastic and I no longer can say I hate the dentist. I had my cleaning and impromptu filling with no hassle and no discomfort. A friend told me they were more expensive than some chain place but worth it imo. I brought my 11 yo because it was more convenient than having different dentists and she also had a great experience. That's saying a lot as she's a very anxious child 😂

I don't know anyone that enjoys going to the dentist. I had a dental emergency and Godley Station got me in the same day I called. Anna is a pro and did a thorough exam. She explained everything that was going on with my teeth before Dr Allen came in to verify her findings. I am someone that has had less than stellar dental care in the past and have avoided going back because of poor treatment from prior dental"professionals". With that said I will definitely recommend them and be back for the follow up treatment. Thanks Anna and Dr Allen.

What an inviting office with such sweet and personable caregivers! My new patient appointment went so well I feel I’ve chosen the best local dentist office for my ongoing care. Yvette was such a pleasure as my hygienist. She was professional and reassuring along with being so pleasant. I appreciate the staff and Dr Hatch as my new dentist office.
Always wonderful even if I needed a crown to go with my princess attitude! It hurts, it costs but I'm worth it and they make it so better! Comfortable in a non comfort way.

We recently moved here from Houston so it’s been a challenge choosing a dentist since we are not from this area. I chose Godley Station Dental from a recommendation and I am glad I did. Sarah was amazing! She took the time to explain everything in such detail and truly cares about her patients. Highly recommend Godley Station Dental!

I had a great experience today at Godley Station Dental. My hygienist, Erin, took her time to thoroughly explain everything to me. I also work in the dental field and she never just assumed I knew everything. She was very gentle when taking X-rays and cleaning my teeth. With there being an innumerable amount of dental offices in pooler, I am glad I chose to go with this practice.
