Healthy Family Dentistry In Venice, FL

Dr. Ty Griffiths, DMD took over Today’s Dentistry in Venice, FL after years of practicing in a very busy, high-turnover cosmetic and family dental office. Opening his own practice, Today’s Dentistry was a way to provide more direct and whole care to his patients and community, overall. For this reason, he and his entire staff maintain the highest levels of accreditation while consistently engaging in continuing education courses. It is important to stay abreast of new discoveries both in treatment and in dental technology.

For this reason, our office is modernized and up-to-date both technologically and procedurally. As a result, we are able to provide advanced dental care such as laser periodontal treatments, scaling and root planning, and custom specialty dentures, just to name a few.
