Several Convenient Locations

No matter where you are located in the area, you can find one of our practices! We have two offices in Chardon, as well as a location in Painesville. This makes scheduling you and your family member’s dental appointments easier than ever.

Advanced Dentistry Using the Latest Technology

We use the latest dental technology to provide our patients with exceptional treatments and diagnoses. No matter why you are visiting us, we ensure that you get the best quality of care. Our office is equipped with precise and helpful technology that makes each of your appointments more convenient and thorough, like our digital x-rays, cone beam CT scanner, and intraoral cameras. That way, no oral problems are left untreated and to develop into more serious issues down the road.

Family-Friendly Office Hours

Business professionals and families have packed schedules that can allow scheduling routine checkups and cleanings to fall to the bottom of the priority list. Unfortunately, this can cause declining oral health that can affect your daily life. We want to help make visiting the family dentist as easy and hassle-free as possible, which is why we’re open until 5pm every weekday and on Saturdays by appointment.

An Experienced Team of Dentists

Two minds are always better than one! When it comes to patient care, Drs. Casey Hammond and Stephanie Pichler work together to provide exceptionally detailed treatment plans with amazing results. Plus, patients will be able to rely on two family dentists’ expertise, no matter what dental problems they face.

A Rich History in Our Community

Our flagship practice, Painesville Dental Group, first opened its doors in 1969. Since then, we have added three additional dental offices to better serve patients in our communities. Dental Group of Jefferson joined the PDG family in 1971 – Chardon Smile Center in 2008 – and Hilltop Family Dental in 2019. In 2020, Painesville Dental Group relocated to a brand-new, state-of-the-art facility custom-built to offer patients better, more modern and streamlined oral healthcare experiences. Our family of dental practices feature some of the top clinical practitioners in Ohio, alongside dental teams 110% committed to you and your loved ones. We look forward to welcoming you into our dental family and carrying forth a legacy of exceptional care and unparalleled service for many more decades to come.
