About Prime Smile Family Dentistry in Indianapolis IN

Prime Smile provides general dentistry maintenance and treatment services for children in Indianapolis. Both of our facilities are conveniently located and fully equipped for X-rays, tests, and treatment. We treat childhood cavities as well as perform extractions and fillings.

Prime Smile believes that good oral health is an important part of total health. Visiting us on a regular schedule provides our dentists the opportunity to implement preventive dental health habits and detect issues before they occur to help keep a child free from common dental/oral issues.

Making your child’s visit to the dentist pleasurable goes a long way in the establishment of trust and confidence in dentistry. We want all children (and adults) to feel good about visiting the dentist. And, we want them to learn how to care for their own dental hygiene at a young age to last them a lifetime of “healthy teeth.”

Prime Smile has two locations in Indianapolis, in Irvington, and at Eagledale Plaza on the west side. We have five Indiana-licensed dentists to see patients at our offices. And, each office is fully staffed by five hygienists, four front office staffers, and five assistants at each office. And if you speak Spanish, no worries… many on our staff are bilingual.
