MEET Nick Cost, DDS Member, Academy of General Dentistry

Enjoy a Beautiful Smile With the Help of One of the Top Dentists in The Upstate

Dr. Nick Cost loves to better his patients’ lives by empowering them with solutions and putting them on the path to the smile they’ve always wanted. When they can smile and never hold back, they transform into the person they were always meant to be. It’s always a thrill to see them turn into this best version of themselves. Dr. Cost is honored when patients choose his office to guide them through this process.

Dr. Cost was raised in a rural area of Southeast Indiana near Cincinnati, OH. The oldest of five children, he feels very blessed to have wonderful parents who raised their family based on strong Christian values.

He graduated magna cum laude from Indiana University with a Bachelor of Science in biology. He participated in the marching band there. He also was involved in two service fraternities that provided community outreach to Bloomington, IN. Most important, he met his wife Kate!

He went on to obtain his Doctor of Dental Surgery degree from the Indiana University School of Dentistry in 2008. He was named to the Dean’s List for academic achievement and earned the Dean’s Silver Medal Award for outstanding national board scores. He also had the privilege of being asked during his fourth year of school to be an instructor for second-year dental students. He taught them how to make beautiful crowns and bridges.

Dr. Cost is a member of the American Dental Association, the Academy of General Dentistry, and the South Carolina Dental Association. He loves learning, teaching, and creating life-changing smiles. He has completed over 200 hours of continuing education in many areas of dentistry, including cosmetic dentistry, clear aligner orthodontics, TMJ therapy, CEREC same-day crowns, mini dental implants, and snoring and sleep apnea therapy.

Dr. Cost has been married to Kate for 10 years. They have been blessed with five beautiful children. The couple spends a lot of time with them, watching them perfect their dance and karate skills and getting outside on hikes and camping trips with their Scout troops. He and Kate love to travel. Their favorite places include the mountains of western North Carolina, the beach in Oak Island, NC, and Hilton Head Island. Dr. Cost’s personal hobbies include snow skiing, hiking, cycling, and an occasional round of golf. He also enjoys watching Indiana University basketball and Cincinnati Bengals football.

Dr. Cost loves meeting new people inside and outside of work. He looks forward to meeting you and hopes that you will soon join our happy dental family here in Laurens!
