I look forward to my twice-yearly visits to Monrovia Family Dentistry. The new facility is clean and modern, spacious with state-of-the-art equipment. The front desk staff are friendly and efficient. My hygienist, Natalie, is super professional. I can trust that she will do a great cleaning followed by a check up with Dr. Sanford. He's the best!

Molly was my hygienist today and she is amazing. Very personal experience and relaxing. She took time to explain and show me any problem areas. She connected with on her personal experiences. She's very good and detailed focused on her work. The office staff were warm and friendly as well. The Dentist came in and he was very nice and professional as well. Thank you all.- Heather Dickinson

A wonderful place to go and get some work done. I went a little nervous because I had to have a cavity fixed. They repaired everything and I never felt a moment of pain. Donna did a wonderful job. Cannot recommend these guys enough.

Dr. Sanford and his staff are very professional and personable. At a recent visit Dr. Sanford and Madalynn took time to explain several options for a procedure I needed. I did not feel rushed, and very much appreciated their patience.

My experience here went beyond my expectations. I had to travel over an hour to find a place that took my insurance and Monrovia Family Dentistry made it all worth my while. The staff are all absolute ANGELS! The building and equipment are all modern. I felt like a Queen! I was so nervous after not going to the Dentist for years but I look forward to my next appointment because the staff were all so sweet, helpful, lighthearted and intuitive. The Endodontist on site was knowledgeable, kind and answered all my silly questions with lightheartedness. Special shout-out to Molly who filled me in for the most pleasant, and thorough cleaning I’ve ever had. Overall incredible experience. I left feeling like there was hope left in this world.

It was my new patient exam today and they were aware of my severe dental anxiety so the lady that was working with my X-rays was really nice and explained things to me. The staff at Monrovia family dentistry are plain amazing and very welcoming to the patients and the hygienist explained to my wife and I what her suggestions are before she ever decides to do a deep clean very careing staff.

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.
