As a dentist serving Mt. Greenwood since 2002, Dr. Garfield Batchelor knows how to make people smile.

But, it’s not just because of the comprehensive dental services he provides; it’s because his patients save money with the Dental Savings Plan at Batchelor Dental.

Dr. Batchelor enables patients to save hundreds, if not thousands, of dollars when it comes to caring for their teeth.

The Dental Savings Plan is just $400 for one dental exam and two preventative dental cleanings, and the plan offers a considerable 20-percent discount off most dental procedures. Dr. Batchelor also offers free consultations for dental implants, and 10-percent off dental-implant restorations.

In addition, patients save 5 percent if full payment is received prior to starting their dental procedure. There are options for payment plans and 0-percent interest dental financing.

Saving money surely brings a smile, but local residents are also smiling with dental implant restorations by Dr. Batchelor.

Dr. Batchelor has been serving the community at Greenwood Family Dentistry, 3500 W. 111th St., for 19 years, and now generations of local residents are his patients.

Dr. Batchelor considers it an honor that his patients have chosen to put their trust in him to maintain their healthy mouth and beautiful smile.

For dental implants, Dr. Batchelor explains the process to educate his patients about their individual needs.

Dental implants are securely attached, which allows patients to gain the confidence they need to smile, eat, speak clearly and gain freedom from embarrassment. Further benefits of dental implants include better appearance, durability, better comfort and improved health.

He and his surgical team use the latest in technology that can complete the dental-implant process in as little three hours. Teeth in one day! The results are amazing, and the implants return the patient’s smile to its natural look and function.

Dr. Batchelor has practiced dentistry in the southwest suburbs since 1999. He received his Doctor of Dental Surgery from Meharry Medical College in Nashville, Tennessee. He represents the local alumni serving as the Chicago chapter president of the Meharry Medical College Alumni Association. He is licensed to practice in Illinois and Indiana, and Dr. Batchelor has received extensive post-doctoral training in dental implants, periodontics and endodontics.

A member of several professional organizations, Dr. Batchelor is at the forefront of dental science and technology. He is a member of the prestigious Spear Study Club, American Dental Association, Illinois Dental Society, Chicago Dental Society, Indiana Dental Association and Northwest Indiana Dental Society.
