I visited yesterday for the first time and I was made to feel so welcomed! The appointment was quick and easy to make and they got me right in. Everyone was smiling and friendly and caring as well. Dr. Sanford was nice and made certain to explain my dental treatment plan in detail. Thanks to the entire staff for your hard work and dedication to showing you care for each patient!

Outstanding work! I just moved from Florida and was searching for a quality dentist to deal with my many dental issues. I was skeptical, because of Monrovia being a smaller town, that they would not be able to do all the different procedures I would require. I was worried for nothing. This guy has fixed all my problems and my teeth look outstanding. I found my dentist. Thank you

We moved our family's dental care over to Monrovia Family Dentistry after having some unprofessional experiences at another dentist and couldn't be more pleased. The office staff, hygenists, and dentists are friendly and prompt, they are able to check, clean, and care for our family's teeth, including several small children, in a professional and unstressful atomosphere. I appreciate that they have long-term plans for our dental health as well, which has minimized issues with dental emergencies. Even after we've moved to South Indy, we still commute because they're such a great dental office--highly recommend!

Monrovia Family Dentistry Difference

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.

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).

How We Serve Our Patients

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.

Ready to Smile Again?

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.
