Patients at Kokomo/Greentown-based Roberts Dental Group, which is celebrating its fifth anniversary this year, can rest assured that they will receive high-quality dental care.
“Our office strives to be a place where our patients can have a great experience and know that their dental needs are being properly taken care of,” says Justin Roberts, DDS, owner of Roberts Dental Group.
Roberts and his staff always make sure patients are comfortable.
“It is our mission to treat everyone with compassion, and to deliver appropriate care to each person’s individual needs and desires,” Roberts says.
It’s been that way since Roberts started the business in August of 2015.
“We took over two well-established offices Kokomo and recently Greentown,” Roberts says. “From there, we continued the high-quality care that patients had come to expect from the previous owners. This was a great opportunity for me and my family to move to the area.”
Roberts was born and raised in Winchester, Indiana. He attended IUPUI, and later the Marquette University School of Dentistry. He previously worked as an associate dentist for another office.
“I worked there until I was blessed with the opportunity to move to the area,” Roberts says.
Roberts is always eager to welcome new patients.
“Patients that are looking for a dedicated group of professionals that truly care about their dental and overall health, as well as providing a comfortable, warm experience, can find their dental home with us,” Roberts says. “One of our main objectives is to treat every patient that comes through our door with an individualized, customized plan that meets each person’s needs and desires. It is our goal to not only deliver what is expected, but to provide appropriate, long-lasting dentistry to all of our patients.”
Roberts says his staff is extremely well trained.
“We dedicate time to advance our team through extensive training and continuing education for both doctors and our individual team members, and we continue to upgrade and advance our technology as dentistry continues to advance and improve,” Roberts says.
When he isn’t busy working, Roberts can be found spending quality time with his family.
“I am married to my high school sweetheart, Marsi, and we have five children,” he says. “I love spending my free time with my family, and I feel truly blessed to be a dad, and to have the opportunity to have a house full of kids. Our home is seldom quiet, but always fun.”
Roberts credits a family member for his path into dentistry.
“My late sister, Annette Poling, was instrumental in my decision to become a dentist,” he says. “I would spend my spring breaks with her, and visit the dental office she worked in. Annette helped encourage me into making one of the greatest decisions of my life.”
Roberts says he and his family keep busy with their Kokomo/Greentown friends.
“Our family is very active in 4-H and livestock shows,” he says. “We have a hobby farm and we enjoy our dairy goats, chickens and rabbits. It is something that has brought our family close, and also instills many of the life skills we are trying to teach our young children.”
Roberts’ love of Kokomo/Greentown has grown over the years.
“I have come to enjoy connecting with the many patients in our practice,” Roberts says. “One of the greatest joys of my job is sharing laughs and stories with the many people I get to see on a daily basis. Many of my patients I have come to call my friends. As a dentist, we need all the friends we can get.”
Roberts says professional dental care doesn’t have to be something to fear or put off.
“Our overall health starts with the mouth, and it is my desire to help patients get the best start possible,” he says. “We want our patients to have the whitest, prettiest and healthiest teeth in town. These past five years have been some of the best years in my life, and we will continue to serve Howard County in the way that our patients have come to expect.”
