Our Practice

Our Elgin Family Dental Practice

At Bender Dental Care we pride ourselves on being a family oriented dental practice. As a father of 4, Dr. Bender understands that parents want the very best for their children – including healthy smiles and a positive oral health experience.

Drill-Free Dental Technology

We’re proud to offer needle-free, drill-free fillings to our patients! These fillings are smaller, more comfortable and less invasive than traditional dental fillings. You can also request nitrous sedation to feel as relaxed as possible during your dental procedure.

A Preventive Focus

Some dental offices push complex procedures in order to make more money. Dr. Bender is focused on preventing problems before they start. That way when something goes wrong, it’s smaller, simpler, and more affordable to manage. We recommend regular preventive care appointments every 6 months to help keep your smile cavity-free.
