About Our Office

Welcome to the Dental Center of Indiana’s Children’s Dentistry and Braces. We have been serving the community for more than 50 years. Our team of dentists care for the unique dental needs of infants, children, teens, and those with special needs to help all patients achieve optimal oral health. Our state-of-the-art facility is designed to make your child’s visit a comfortable and enjoyable experience. We accept new patients and emergencies at our South Bend office, conveniently located at 1011 Michigan Avenue, , South Bend, South Bend 46350.

We value complete oral care beginning at an early age with regular hygiene visits, check-ups, and consistent home oral health routines. We offer a wide range of comprehensive dental services, including pit and fissure sealants, tooth-colored and stainless steel crowns, and composite fillings, which require less drilling and have a more natural appearance. We offer braces for children and young adults, using a non-extraction approach emphasizing growth-modification techniques to achieve optimal facial and smile results.

We accept most major dental insurance plans, offer financing options, and have in-house discount plans to fit the needs of every budget. We are committed to finding financial solutions to fit your budget, either by helping you maximize your dental insurance benefits, offering you our in-house discount plan, or assisting you with financing options.
