Dr Horton, Dr Vranas and their entire team always provide exceptional dental care. I have TMJ which severely limits my ability to open my mouth very wide . I’m grateful they always find a way to work around it. I recently chipped one of my front teeth. Dr Horton expertly repaired it and I’m very happy with the results! I’ve been a patient with them for over 20 years and rate them the best in the Fox Valley.

Don't settle for less when it comes to your family's dental health. Experience the exceptional care and state-of-the-art treatment at Horton & Vranas DDS.
