Meet Carl E. Henley, D.D.S., F.A.G.D.

Dr. Henley was born in Benton, Illinois and lived there as a young child until moving to Downers Grove. He first began showing an interest in dentistry in 1963, at the age of six, when a bicycle accident forever changed his smile. The loss of his front teeth and several lengthy visits with his dentist only further planted the seed of his curiosity. After graduating from Downers Grove High School, he attended Southern Illinois University in Carbondale Illinois. His dream became a reality when he graduated from Northwestern University’s School of Dentistry in 1983.

For nearly 25 years in the same location, he has been able to be one of Naperville’s top dentists. His ability to show his true talents and versatility as a dentist has led to his success. While being able to reflect his passion and working with patients of all ages he says, “continuing education is considered a part of our responsibility to our patients.” His practice is “committed to excellence in dental care, where patients are treated as guests.”

Whether it is a conventional composite filling, or a gorgeous “Hollywood” smile, Dr. Henley is experienced in various types of dentistry. He strongly believes in the importance of maintaining your oral health, as well as your overall health and wellness

Dr. Henley received his Fellowship in 2007 from the Academy of General Dentistry. He is an active member of several prestigious dental organizations such as American Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry, Academy of Computerized Dentistry of North America, American Dental Association, Chicago Dental Society, Illinois Dental Society, International College of Cranio-Mandibular Orthopedics, and the International Association of Orthodontics.

In the latter part of 2012, he become a candidate for Fellowship with American Association of Implant Dentistry. When he is not traveling to further his education, he resides happily in Bristol with his wife, children, and two Bengal cats. He also has one daughter that graduated from Gonzaga, and another currently attending his Alma Mater at SIU. In his spare times he loves to golf, go boating, and just enjoy life.
