I'm very afraid of dental work and everyone here is so very patient and kind. The sedation worked wonderfully; I was calm and felt no pain. Dr. Sanford was professional and did the extractions and filling quickly. I have more work that needs to be done and I am not afraid of going back. I would definitely recommend anyone that is fearful of dentists to give Monrovia Family Dentistry a try.

This is a great place to maintain or “catch up” on your oral health. Folks are friendly and it is a judgement-free zone. Trust them be honest, kind, caring... And to help you take care of yourself and your family. It’s easy to forget how important it is to take care of our teeth, but adults and children live much healthier lives if they remember that chewing is vital to our overall health! don’t be afraid, just go. 😁

I got prepped for 2 crowns and a bridge. I do not like dentists. I would rather have all my teeth pulled instead of working on mine. I've heard a lot of people talk about Monrovia Family Dentistry. Let me tell you they are great. They make you comfortable and work with you if you need a break during the procedure. Great staff

Friendly staff, got me an appointment very short notice, and didnt have to wait. I have a severe phobia of dentist and any dental work, and usually wait until its dire before going to the dentist. I think I have finally found a place I am comfortable with, they made me feel very comfortable and are helping me work through my phobia. The staff are great, wonderful place.

We moved to Monrovia a few years ago, and I hadn't heard anything but nice things about this dentist office. I finally made an appointment for myself and my 7 year old son. The staff is so friendly and helpful. My son had to have his first cavities filled, and he was pretty nervous. After his appointment he said their was nothing to be scared of, and was looking forward to coming back! The doctors and nurses are very knowledgeable and helpful. Definitely recommend!

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.
