Family Dental Practice in Greater Flint

Town Center Family Dental is an individual, privately owned practice that treats all ages of patients with quality-minded dentistry in Flint, MI. It is our goal to ensure that you are treated with respect and kindness, and are given the opportunity to make empowered choices about your dental care. Our dentists welcome you to enjoy better oral health at our dental practice.

Modern Dental Technology

Our comprehensive treatments are aided by our use of efficient technology, so that your visit is hassle-free and as comfortable as possible. Our Flint dental office utilizes panoramic X-rays for diagnosis of dental problems and a digital scanner to gather impressions of your teeth when planning for restorative or cosmetic dental prosthetics, such as crowns, bridges, and veneers. This technology allows our team to forgo the discomfort and mess of impression paste and large metal trays. Many patients find this traditional approach to treatment planning difficult to tolerate, which is why we incorporate digital technology for easier and more detailed impressions.


All of our treatment rooms, or operatories, are equipped with TVs, so you can enjoy programming that helps you to relax during your dental visits. If you are a particularly anxious or nervous patient, we can also supply nitrous oxide sedation to help alleviate stress and create feelings of relaxation throughout your visit. Our dentists are here to make sure that your visit to our office cultivates positive feelings about dental care, which promotes worry-free dentistry and better oral health in the long run.​

Cosmetic Dental Care for Stunning Smiles

Our dentists are skilled at aesthetically restoring damaged teeth in your smile, so you can enjoy the confidence that comes with feeling good about the way your smile looks. Whether your teeth are currently misaligned, stained, or cracked and chipped, we offer corrective dental procedures that can help you see the results you want.
 
With cosmetic dentistry in Flint from Town Center Family Dental, patients have access to clear braces from Invisalign® and porcelain veneers, among other popular procedures, such as teeth whitening and tooth-colored crowns and fillings. We want your smile to look its best, which is why our prosthetics and dental appliances are tooth-colored; they act as natural-looking additions to your smile which help create the appearance of balance, health, and beauty.

Family-Friendly Dentistry

In addition to treating adults to cosmetic and restorative services, our team is also happy to treat families in our community, with patients whose ages range from young children to grandparents. We are proud to have served generations of family members at our dental office, with treatment that matches your needs at every age and stage, from preventive teeth cleaning and dental education, to comprehensive restorations and dental prosthetics.
