The Story of How We Got Started
Grove Dental launched on January 1, 1970, birthed as a successor to another practice located in the Green Knolls shopping center in Downers Grove. Over the next three decades, that single practice expanded to what it is today, creating the current four Grove Dental locations — Downers Grove, Bolingbrook, Lombard and then Wheaton. Grove was the first group practice in the State of Illinois to be fully accredited by the American Academy of Dental Group Practice, and today it remains one of the finest, most patient-friendly dental practices in Chicagoland.
