Bright Smiles Dentistry: not just another dental practice.

We don't just provide the same kind of service that everyone else does. We're different—and we know it, because our clients tell us so! We're proud to be the best family dentist office in Carlinville IL, but we don't just specialize in kids—we also offer cosmetic dentistry, implants, single-visit restorations… anything you need to keep your smile looking as bright and healthy as possible! When you visit our office, you'll notice a few things right away: our friendly staff, our modern decor, and our dedication to making sure every client feels comfortable and at home during their appointment. We want you to feel like it's not just a business transaction—we want you to feel like this is an extension of your family.

Our mission is simple: we want every patient who walks through our doors to leave with a smile on their face and an understanding of how important it is for them to take care of their teeth from here on out.

We Aim To:

  • Provide our patients with the quality of care we would expect to receive ourselves.
  • Communicate effectively, ensuring that patients are fully aware of appropriate treatment options and their associated costs.
  • Emphasize the preventative approach to dental care.

We provide a full range of modern dental treatments including bonded laser “drills”, white fillings, crowns, single visit restorations, bridges, dentures, root canals, tooth whitening, veneers, and implants.

When Dr. Denby first started Bright Smiles Dentistry in 1992, he was just a kid with big dreams and an even bigger smile. And those smiles in the picture have only gotten bigger since Dr. LeVora joined the practice in 2015! We love what we do, and that's why we're so good at it. We want every single person who comes through our doors to feel like part of the family—like they can come to us with any problem and know that we'll take care of them. At Bright Smiles Dentistry, we believe that a great smile isn't just about looks—it's about feeling confident about yourself. That's why we take pride in delivering high-quality care to all of our patients. We provide preventative care to keep your smile healthy and strong for life. We believe that everyone deserves to have bright, healthy teeth and a smile they can be proud of. If you're in the Carlinville area and looking for a dentist who can help you achieve this goal, we'd love to see you.
