I have had terrible anxiety about going to the dentist, and avoided going for 7 years. I really did my research finding the best dentist. There are over a hundred awesome reviews for MFD, so this must be an awesome dentist, right? Well you better believe it! This dentist and his entire staff rock! I have been to many dentists with not so good experiences, and Monrovia Family Dentistry is the best by far! I recently became a patient here, and found out I needed quite a bit of work. Two extractions, and a few fillings. I had my extractions done this week, and recieved Nitrous gas. My insurance doesn't pay for that but it was very cheap. The doc was very quick, gentle, and thorough with everything! The gas helped, but I felt very comfortable throughout the entire procedure. I am now healing nicely, and the doc even called personally to check up on me. I definitely recommend this dentist!

I've had some horrible experiences with dentist in the past. I was convinced that all dentist we're jerks. Dr. Mark changed all that for me. Dr Sanford and his staff are the greatest. Not only are they friendly, but compassionate about their care and comfort level of their paitents. Dr Mark is very generous with the "numbing juice" I've never felt any pain during my procedures. It also helps that Dr Mark isn't hard to look at. I often joke about how much he makes me drool. ???? Dr Sanford takes the time to listen to what I want vs what I need vs what I can afford. They have even worked with me on payment plans when I needed. Most importantly, to me, is that they have never put me down or made me feel bad about the bad shape of my teeth. Most recently I had a filling fall out. I shouldn't have been eating taffy anyway. I was extremely worried about losing the whole tooth. Admittedly due to vanity because it was a front tooth and I didn't want to look 'white trashy.' Thankfully Dr Sanford was able to save the tooth. In fact, it looks even better than it did before. It's like a brand new tooth. My entire family goes to Monrovia Family Dentistry and I can't say enough good things about them.

Years ago, I had veneers on two of my front teeth. The veneers started to chip off. Dr. Sanford replaced the veneers with crowns and they look great! He was able to match the color of the crowns with my other teeth. They look amazing! Additionally, when I retired and did not want to pay for private insurance, other options were provided through Dr. Sanford’s office. Everyone is friendly, helpful and competent!!

I would highly recommend Monrovia Family Dentistry, to anyone. Dr. Sanford, and his staff are amazing. They are very friendly, personable, and most importantly, gentle. They have individualized treatment plans based on your specific dental needs. If you have dental anxiety like myself, they are very understanding. They explain everything in detail, give you many treatment options, ensure you are pain free, and are very encouraging in eliminating any worries, fears, or anxiety, you may have. Dr. Sanford, and his staff genuinely care about their patients. Yesterday I was supposed to have an extraction with the aid of Nitrous Oxide, by the time I was to receive the extraction I felt so comfortable and at ease that I opted to go forward without it. If you are looking for a better, more relaxing dental experience, look no further than Monrovia Family Dentistry. Thank you all for always being so kind, and understanding!

Very friendly and explains things well. Made sure I was comfortable. I am extremely nervous at new places and especially the dentist and I was relaxed after just a few minutes. I highly recommend going there. Everyone from the office staff to the dentist was friendly and personable. This was my first visit and I am going back for more treatment and to get my first set of dentures. Can’t wait!

Being out of state from NH on military orders it was very difficult to find a dentist that would look at teeth to see were my pain was coming from. I contacted upwards of 15 dentists, Monrovia was more than happy to help. A few minutes after placing the call I was in the office getting my mouth inspected for the severe tooth ache. Thanks to their help I was able to determine I needed a root canal, which was then taken care of by the military. Without there help I would have been running around needing a root canal throughout my entire training exercise in Indiana. Great staff thanks for all the help.

I love this office. Dr. Sanford is AMAZING. AT 30 years old i had an accident that busted my front teeth. Started causing the rest of my teeth to shift and crack. At 34 years old I came to Dr. Sanford after being unhappy with my original dentist. Dr. Sanford changed my life giving me a beautiful happy and healthy smile again. He is the nicest dentist I have ever met. His office staff, beautiful and nice ladies. Everyone is so welcoming and most of all gentle and caring. I hope you choose Dr. Sanford as well. You will not regret it! Thank you for helping me and making me feel beautiful again.

Dr Mark Sanford with His FamilyBorn in a small town outside of Indianapolis, Dr. Mark Sanford, DDS and staff provide comprehensive general dentistry, cosmetic dentistry and orthodontics to patients of all ages. A graduate of Indiana University School of Dentistry, Dr. Sanford takes great pride in his Indiana heritage, and enjoys working with fellow Hoosiers.

Monrovia Family Dentistry is located in the heart of Monrovia, Indiana on SR 42 at 253 W Main St, Monrovia, IN 46157. We are next to the Subway restaurant and conveniently just a few miles south of exit #59 off I-70.

Passionate about dentistry, Dr. Sanford is an avid member of many leading professional dental organizations, and is committed to staying up to date with the latest trends in dentistry. Such organizations include American Dental Association (ADA), American Association of Orthodontists (AAO), Indiana Dental Association (IDA), Indiana District Dental Society (IDDS), and Indiana Association of Orthodontists (IAO).

We are also fully accredited members of the Better Business Bureau meeting their accreditation standards with an A+ rating.

Monrovia Family Dentistry OperatoryAs a family dental practice, we are able to keep our patients teeth and gums healthy by scheduling regular, preventative visits, as well as handle a wide variety dental related issues to get our patients oral health fully restored. Our goal during every patient interaction is to keep your mouth healthy and you happy!

There are several possible issues that can cause discomfort or dissatisfaction with a tooth. Our state-of-the-art dental x-ray technology will allow us to make a well-informed, evidence based diagnosis, inhibiting over treatment. Once our diagnosis is made, we share these results and information with the patient, so that he/she understands not only what dental treatment is recommended, but also why we are recommending those dental services.

Sometimes a tooth can be restored to it’s near-optimal form by removing the decay and placing a tooth colored filling, essentially rebuilding the tooth. If too much of the tooth structure is gone by decay and/or trauma, it may need to have a dental crown and root canal. In addition and in some instances, new decay can develop around an old, metal or composite fillings. We are able to remove the decay, and replace those old fillings with tooth colored ones, which can be much more aesthetically pleasing.

If the tooth can’t be salvaged and restored, or the patient elects to have it removed, an extraction would be necessary. Please keep in mind that once a tooth is removed, it’s best to replace that missing tooth with a dental implant, dental bridge, or partial/full denture. By replacing the tooth, you prevent the other teeth from drifting into the open space which can cause numerous other dental issues.

If there are certain aspects of your smile that you are not happy with, we can help!

Cosmetic dental services such as dental veneers, teeth whitening, and dental bonding can dramatically enhance one’s smile, and give that patient a “Hollywood” style smile. Even orthodontics can have a dramatic, positive effect on a person’s smile by making the teeth straighter and more aligned.

We understand that some people haven’t been to the dentist in a long time. We promise we won’t judge you. Life happens. If it’s been a long time since you’ve seen a dentist, chances are that you may have gums issues that are more involved than just a regular cleaning. If this is the case, you may need certain periodontal services which we will inform you of and gladly provide. Healthy gums are a critical foundation for healthy teeth and happy smile.

We all know that friend or family member who covers their mouth when they laugh, mostly due to the lack of confidence with his/her smile. There is hope, and we can help.

Using the latest restorative or cosmetic dental services, Dr. Sanford can help you achieve your ideal smile, which can have a positive impact on your self-confidence, self-esteem, and overall well-being.
