The Dental Center of Granger, Your Local Family Dentists for 29 Years

Since 1988, our family dental care practice has offered high-quality services, including general and cosmetic dentistry, relaxing sedation dentistry, and specialized pediatric treatment for children and kids with special needs. We offer treatment for adults, adolescents, and children, beginning at the age of 12 months. Our full spectrum of dental services has made our practice a trusted local dentist office for the whole family. Our office is located at 12840 SR 23 in Granger. You’ll find us on the corner of Adams Rd. and SR 23, right next door to McDonald’s and in front of Martin’s Super Market. We’re open on Mondays, Tuesdays, Wednesdays, and Thursdays from 8:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. and on Fridays from 8:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. We also welcome walk-in patients and accommodate dental emergencies in our practice, when possible, or in one of our sister offices. We do everything possible to provide our patients with the prompt, professional dental care they need.

Over the years, The Dental Center of Granger has earned a reputation for providing exceptional dental care with compassionate, personal treatment. Our experienced Granger dentists are gentle and caring, while our clinical staff that supports them are some of the best in the area. And our helpful front desk staff is extremely knowledgeable and friendly. We understand that patients’ time is very valuable and always strive to stay on time. With all of our friendly and caring service, most of our patients truly enjoy visiting the dentist. Our practice was built on helping people, and we extend this support to worthwhile charitable and community organizations, such as the Make-A-Wish Foundation, the ADA’s Give Kids a Smile program, Toys for Tots, and local Little League baseball teams. We also provide free dental health supplies, oral health screenings, and educational resources to community organizations, schools, daycare centers, and healthcare events throughout Granger. We also care about animals and have partnered with Potawatomi Zoo to care for the oral health of its furry family.
