Who We Are

Naper Dental Center

About the Office

Serving Naperville since 1980, Naper Dental Center has been providing excellent dental care to the community to help them obtain outstanding dental health and their perfect smiles. Naper Dental Center is conveniently located in the Fifth Avenue Train Station, minutes from downtown Naperville, public transportation and easy interstate access. At Naper Dental Center, we strive to treat the whole patient.

The Doctors and Naper Dental Center Team listen intently to patients to discover their wants and needs for their smile and overall dental health and then work closely with the patient to determine the best treatment to meet their expectations. In order to continue to provide excellent care, we are constantly exceeding requirements in Continuing Education, adopting the latest treatment techniques, and implementing the newest technology. Furthermore, we are partnered with Naper Dental Sleep Center and screen our patients for dental problems related to TMJ disease, Sleep Apnea and malaligned teeth in order to properly refer them to seek treatment when needed. We realize our patients are the life of our practice and we will do everything to provide them the best, most comfortable experience and outstanding treatment.

Sincerely,

Dr. Angela Planer Venegoni and the Naper Dental Center Team

Our Registered Dental Hygienists

The primary goal of our dental hygienists is to provide excellent treatment and promote the prevention of oral diseases. We feel that keeping the patient well educated and informed about their treatment is as important as the treatment itself. In order to achieve these goals, the hygienists attend continuing education and certification courses. We encourage our patients to ask questions and be completely comfortable before we begin our treatment plan. Your health is our main concern and we will do everything in our power to help you achieve good oral hygiene and a beautiful smile.
