Our Mission Statement

“The philosophy for our dental practice is to educate and motivate our patients to retain their teeth and oral health for a lifetime. We provide ethical treatment options for our patients based on their individualized wants and needs. We also provide the highest quality of dental care through a constant commitment to continuing education and the use of the latest technology in a safe, clean, and comfortable environment.”

What Sets Us Apart from Other Dentists

Conservative Dentistry

While other dentists search for opportunities to make more money, we provide the information and motivation you need to maintain your natural teeth and oral health for the rest of your life. Every treatment is tailored to your individual wants and needs, and we never perform a treatment that we don't think will benefit your health.

Continuing Education

Our dentist is committed to providing the highest quality dental care available in Kenilworth, IL, and throughout the state. We regularly attend continuing education courses and training sessions to utilize the latest dental technology in a safe, comfortable setting. Dr. Carpenter alone has received over 500 hours of implant education.

Advanced Treatment Options

We are one of the only certified users of the Inman Aligner in the whole state. Additionally, we can perform most phases of dental implant treatment on-site, making it easy for our members to schedule all of their appointments in one location rather than traveling back and forth between specialists.

State-of-the-Art Technology

Visitors to our dental practice can enjoy some of the most advanced dental technology in the state. Dr. Carpenter has invested in a cone beam computed tomography (CBCT) scanner, which gathers high-resolution images of your jaw, teeth, and surrounding structures to allow for better treatment planning.

"We have been coming to Dr. Carpenter for several years now after seeing dentists that lacked good patient relationships. Dr. Carpenter is patient with those who fear going to the dentist (that's me), explains what needs to be done and provides different options for treatment. Worth the trek from the city!"
