Fall Creek Dental
Dr. Tony Pilgrim and his team welcome you to Fall Creek Dental!
Our patients choose us because we provide high-quality yet affordable dentistry in a warm and relaxing atmosphere. Since 1985, we have been helping central Wisconsin families achieve good dental health and sparkling smiles.
Our family is dedicated to yours, providing you with the latest in preventive care and using modern high-tech treatments for fillings, crowns, bridges, and more.
We are honored by the trust our patients place in us. Dr. Pilgrim works closely with his team to ensure that Fall Creek Dental exceeds patient expectations at every appointment. We know you’ll appreciate the personalized attention you receive when you work with us.
We pride ourselves on running an on-time office, so you won’t be kept waiting. At the same time, we schedule plenty of time with every patient so we can answer questions. In fact, one of our goals is to equip our patients with so much knowledge on taking good care of their teeth that they will rarely need us for anything other than examinations and cleanings. Prevention is key, and our practice philosophy reflects this.
Visit our office so you and your family can enjoy healthy smiles for years to come. We look forward to getting to know you!
