The theme of Gillum Dentistry is the relentless pursuit of excellence in comfort, quality, and customer service.  I work at a comforting pace, one patient at a time.  I place all permanent restorations myself to ensure consistency, optimal quality, comfort and patient satisfaction.

Our New Patient Promise

The conservative quality dentistry, Dr. Gillum delivers to his patients, is the kind of dentistry he would want to receive.  His standard of care is exceptionally high.  He keeps his dental clinic in Greenwood, IN up to date with the most proven patient centered technology.  Dr. Gillum strives to know his patients as individuals, to know them personally and to not treat them like the next patient up.  Gillum Dentistry nurtures each patient relationship by understanding what you value regarding your dental health and respecting you as a person.

The Doctor would prefer his patients not experience discomfort during their dental visit and has a genuine concern for patient comfort.  His goal from day one has been to continually master the most advanced pain free anesthetic and treatment techniques.  After all his mother demanded it, lol!  Dr. Gillum utilized nitrous oxide sedation and offers it “free of charge” as part of his unique comfortable injection technique.

Gillum Dentistry does their best to ensure that you never have to wait excessively for an appointment.  Their staff strives to be ready for when you arrive giving each patient their full attention.

Dr. Gillum never cuts corners using inferior materials or discount lab work.  His pledge is to provide his patients with the highest level of conservative care.  After all, you only get one set of teeth.  The tradition of excellence, Gillum Dentistry is known for, reflects the loyalty and quality of the staff they employ.

Optimal dental health and a radiant smile is the goal.  If you want and value this standard of care, we would be happy to serve as your dentist in Greenwood, IN.

Education and Continuing Education

I graduated with honors from Indiana University School of Dentistry.  I earned the prestigious Gold Foil Operator’s Award for excellence in operative dentistry.  I was selected as a student instructor and continued as a part-time faculty member after graduation.

Continuing education combined with experience, skill, and the master of universal principles is the foundation of quality dentistry.  I have completed hundreds of hours of coursework in Orthodontics, Six Month Smiles, TMJ Facial Pain, and Dental Sleep Medicine.

In addition to being a well-respected family dentist in Greenwood, Indiana, I am recognized as a local expert in medically prescribed treatments for sleep apnea.  We provide an effective amazingly comfortable oral appliance alternative to CPAP for the treatment of Snoring and Sleep Apnea. Visit our Sleep Medicine website SnoreCrushers.com for details.

In 1992, I completed a three-year course in applied nutrition and was awarded the title of Professor of Applied Nutrition with the American Health Science Institute.  I read a number of articles every week to keep abreast of the newest developments in nutrition, dentistry, and sleep medicine.

Professional Collaboration

Outside the Office

I believe that life is a gift we share in service to others.  My office provides charitable dentistry to men in Wheeler Mission’s faith-based Alcohol and Drug Rehab Program.  My staff selects a number of patients each year who cannot afford the treatments they need and provide them at nominal fee or free of charge.  I am a member of Greenwood Toastmasters, an international organization dedicated to developing leadership and public speaking skills.

I reside in Center Grove with my wife, Shelley, and two of our six children.  We have a lovely granddaughter named Kyla and a Maltese named Chloe.  I am devoted to my family and spend my fair weather free time enjoying and improving our back yard getaway.

I enjoy moderate regular exercise, reading, nutrition, photography, landscaping, deck construction, and venturing to the island of St. Martin, which my wife and I visit each year to relax and renew with our island friends.

As you open you heart and expand your experience through the relentless search for truth you become conscious of life, self, and God.
