Welcome to Albritton & Ardovino Dentistry
Our vision is to provide our patients with unsurpassed service that delivers a premium dental experience. We intend to utilize the latest in dental technology and education so our patients know what is possible in dentistry.
We pledge to treat our patients with the highest level of care, skill and comfort while working to remove all barriers that may prevent optimal dental care.
We strive to create an atmosphere of mutual trust and respect between our dental team and our patients, which creates the foundation for long term relationships.
Using Innovative Technology
We use digital x-ray films and intra-oral cameras to help reduce radiation risks to patients, obtain the clearest images possible, and help diagnose decay in the early stages. Our x-ray films reduce the radiation by 80% compared to a standard dental film.
Same Day Crowns
Need a crown? Get it in a single visit! Most practices require a secondary follow up weeks after an initial visit. Find out how our technology helps us deliver the best possible customer experience and quality.

I have raved about all of the wonderful services and wonderful people with your dental office. Thank you for making me feel “at home”.
I love the care I get from Dr. Ardovino! She remembers her patients and is very committed to their dental health and care.
Dr. Ardovino and Dr. Albritton are very gentle. The whole staff is very friendly and concerned about making your visit as comfortable as possible. Best experience I’ve ever had visiting a dentist office.
Wonderfully friendly and professional staff! Most pleasant dental experience in my 58 years. Actually looking forward to my next visit. Caring, skilled, and very informative about and during procedure. Highly recommend!!!
Dr. Albritton is great. First time I’ve had dental work that didn’t hurt when I was being numbed. The staff is great and friendly.
Great doctors and staff that are friendly and bring a great environment to their dental office. Nothing but the best from Albritton and Ardovino.
I have been to other dentists about the same problem I was having and they just shrugged me off. Albritton and Ardovino Family Dentistry gave me all the options and helped me to work out a plan of action. They are awesome!
Every one was very professional, very pleasant and friendly. This has been the best dental experience I have ever had.
I loved it. I felt my cleaning and exam were thorough and quite pleasant. Everything was explained well and I left with products that I definitely needed–so glad I chose to switch to this dental practice. Makes my former dental experiences seem like they were just going through the motions and definitely not up to date on the latest findings/methods in dentistry.
As a new patient, I felt very comfortable with all staff that I encountered. I even told other people how enjoyable my experience was. You don’t often hear Enjoyable and Dentistry in the same sentence!!
