“As much as I fear going to the dentist, I absolutely enjoy coming here. The staff is very professional, and yet they all seem to have a sense of humor. They scored me as a regular a couple years ago when I went in for a consult for Fastbraces, and they immediately addressed my receding gum line. My previous dentist, whom I had been going to for years, never mentioned it!! I thought it was normal. I can't even imagine what would have happened to my teeth if I never came in here.” Shawna W. | Chatham, IL

“I am extremely happy with Advanced Dental. I'm on a long journey getting my smile back, and I'm happy they are making it possible for me to get exactly that. I can't say enough great things about the whole staff and Dr. Matt VanderMolen’s patience and understanding with me and making this a reality! I plan on recommending them to anyone that asks me for a great dentist, and I hope my review will help you decide to let them help you smile!” Neil D., Taylorville, IL

“This is THE best place to go for dental care in Springfield. I waited for very little time before I was taken back to the exam room, and a dental assistant took my x-rays and other required pictures. She made the process fun and easy and everything went smoothly. The dentist was VERY nice, and very professional. She was honest and straightforward, which I appreciate. Overall, you can tell that the staff are well trained, knowledgeable, and very experienced.” Max R., Lake in the Hills, IL

Afraid of the Dentist? You’ve Found the Right Place.

At Advanced Dental Care of Springfield, our team understands how difficult it can be to overcome dental phobia. Our patients’ comfort is always a top priority, and we help them receive the care they need smoothly with the help of sedation dentistry. These calming techniques can reduce negative feelings and create a sense of genuine relaxation – in fact, most of our patients don’t even remember much about the treatment experience afterwards.
