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, our Kenilworth dentist provides the information and motivation you need to maintain your natural teeth and oral health for the rest of your life. Every treatment we perform 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 North Shore. 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 more than 500 hours of dental 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.

It was suggested that I go to Art Carpenter DDS. I went to get some bonding, whitening, a crown and a veneer. I found him to be friendly, professional, explained everything before he did each thing and he did a great job. I would recommend him to the world to go to him.

Caring for Generations of Patients

"My family has been seeing Dr. Carpenter since I was a kid. He is friendly, thorough, and always clearly explains what is going on and what he is doing." Sarah S., 5-Star Google Review

An Exclusive Provider of Inman Aligners 

Our Kenilworth dentist is a certified provider of the Inman Aligner. This orthodontic device can help you correct crooked, tipped, or rotated front teeth in as little as 6 to 18 weeks without the need for metal braces. Like Invisalign® aligners, the outer portion of the Inman aligner is clear, so it's hard for others to notice when you're wearing it. Because it works faster than Invisalign, the Inman Aligner also tends to be much less expensive.

Does Going to the Dentist Make You Anxious?

We understand that going to the dentist causes anxiety for some. If you dread dental visits or are undergoing a particularly lengthy procedure such as dental implant placement or root canal therapy, we want to help you feel as comfortable as possible while you're in the treatment chair. 

We offer oral conscious sedation to help visitors at our Kenilworth, IL, dentist's office feel relaxed from start to finish. Our doctor can provide more information about available sedation options during your next visit.

Our Office Is Welcoming And Conveniently Located

Our small, boutique-style office in Kenilworth, IL, feels more like a home than a dentist's office. The warm and friendly atmosphere is designed to help you feel at ease during every visit. The waiting area offers coffee and magazines for your enjoyment. Our treatment rooms are plentiful, spacious, and private, so you will never be rushed through your appointment. Dr. Carpenter is an educator—not a salesman—and will provide all the information you need to feel informed and confident in your decisions.

Because of our convenient location on Green Bay Road, our Kenilworth, IL, dentist's office sees patients from all over the North Shore, including Skokie, Evanston, and Glenview. In search of an excellent dentist to care for your family? Come visit Dr. Carpenter.
