Welcome to Southdale Dental Associates


Southdale Dental Associates has been creating healthy, happy smiles for our patients for more than 45 years, and we’ve loved every minute of it! It’s an honor to care for second and third generations of the same families, and being their trusted dental health partner.

Dr. Thomas Telander, Dr. Sachin Mehta, Dr. James Healy, Dr. Kyle Gearhart, and Dr. Lara Bainer are gentle, experienced dentists. They listen to each patient’s care goals, and then create customized treatment plans to create healthy smiles in an efficient, comfortable manner.

Along with our team, we emphasize preventive care, to stop problems from starting and to keep small issues from becoming big ones. We want you to keep your teeth for life! We also focus on minimally-invasive treatments that give you the strongest, longest-lasting results for your smile.
