Village Dental Services

The Village Dental offices are passionate about continuing our education so that we can continue to offer the newest technology in the office. We are both Invisalign certified and are even able to mill our own crowns in the office giving you more options with fewer appointment times.

We care about your opinion and speak to you as friends looking out for your best interest. 

we are committed to our patients.

At Village Dental, we love taking care of patients of all ages! Did you know that the American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry (AAPD) recommends your child have their first dental visit by age 1, or within 6 months of their first tooth erupting? While this may seem early, it allows your little one to begin building a positive relationship with our dentists and hygienists. It also allows us to monitor your child’s development and catch any concerns as early as possible. This will lead to less treatment down the road. 

Our experienced team will create a positive and welcoming environment to ensure your child is comfortable and feels safe throughout their visit. Their dentist visits should be something they look forward to rather than fear. 

Although most children do just fine at a general dentist office, more advanced cases, or extremely fearful patients, may need a referral to a pediatric dentist,

Pediatric dentistry

Orthodontics is the art of using appliances to straighten and align teeth. Most commonly it involves the use of braces to move teeth into their proper position. In this method, brackets are bonded to the teeth and arch wires are threaded through the brackets. The arch wires act as a track and guide each tooth to its proper position. There are several types of orthodontic braces available to consumers, including the more traditional metal braces, ceramic “tooth colored” braces, as well as clear plastic braces.


Looking to improve your smile? There are many options for treatment these days, many of which are more affordable than you may think. Our dentists can help improve tooth shape or size discrepancies, broken or chipped teeth, stained and discolored teeth, and much more. No matter what issue you would like to improve, our Dentists will combine their skills and artistry to achieve the smile you’ve always dreamed of. 

We offer any combination of the following Cosmetic Treatment Options:

  • Teeth whitening
  • Veneers or crowns
  • Implant restorations
  • Bonding (esthetic fillings that blend with your natural teeth)
  • Orthodontics
  • Laser dentistry

Cosmetic dentistry

A crown covers a damaged tooth, giving it stability and improving its appearance, shape and alignment. Crowns may be used to:  

  • Replace a large filling when there is little tooth structure remaining
  • Protect a weak tooth from fracturing
  • Restore a fractured tooth
  • Attach a bridge
  • Cover a dental implant
  • Cover a discolored or poorly shaped tooth
  • Cover a tooth that has had root canal treatment

A bridge is a method to fill the space created by missing teeth. A bridge replaces the missing tooth, both functionally and cosmetically. Bridge work is as much an art as it is an exact science. The materials used may be gold alloys, porcelain bonded to metal alloy, or all ceramic material made to match your natural tooth color. The choice of material depends on requirements for strength, wear, and/or esthetics.

crowns and bridges

A dental implant is an ideal tooth restoration for people who are missing one or more teeth as a result of injury, periodontal disease, or any other reason. A dental implant is a metal/titanium post that a periodontist, oral surgeon, or your general dentist surgically positions into the jaw. After the implant is placed the bone surrounding the implant will need time to integrate and heal.

Once the healing is complete your dentist will place an abutment and crown over the implant. While implants are typically more expensive than other methods of tooth replacement, they provide superior benefits. Implants are stronger than natural teeth and generally last your lifetime. They are also a more favorable approach than bridgework since they do not depend on neighboring teeth for support. To receive implants, you need to have healthy gums and adequate bone to support the implant. You must also be committed to excellent oral hygiene and regular dental visits as these are critical to the long-term success of dental implants.

Dental Implant Restorations

Root canal treatment (also referred to as root canal therapy or endodontic therapy) is made necessary when a cavity is allowed to reach all the way to the pulp. Regular cleanings and checkups prevent and detect problems early. Sometimes deep restorations or trauma to a tooth may also cause the nerve to be damaged to the point it needs root canal therapy. Once this occurs the pulp becomes infected, and can even extend through the root tip and begin to eat away at the surrounding bone (this is an abscess). By the time the pulp is infected it must be treated, and cannot heal on its own. It can even weaken the entire immune system. This is dangerous, not to mention very painful. Symptoms that the pulp has become infected may include sensitivity to hot/cold or sweets, pain, swelling, pain to biting or pressure, and a bad taste in the mouth. Sometimes, however, no symptoms are apparent and the person is unaware of any problem until a checkup.

A root canal is then performed to clean out the infected tooth pulp, and disinfect the canals of the tooth. The only other treatment would be to extract the tooth. Once the infection is resolved, the canal(s) are filled in to prevent any further infection. Usually a core build-up and crown is recommended for restoring a tooth that has had root canal therapy.


Getting a tooth pulled is not the most pleasant experience but is sometimes necessary in order to avoid further complications. Decay, trauma, daily habits, and health history can all contribute to the reason a tooth may need to be pulled. Although Dr. Marck and Dr. Malenfant strive to save teeth whenever possible, if a tooth does need to be extracted you can rest assured that you will be in good hands. Although some more advanced cases may need to see an oral surgeon for treatment, our doctors can often do extractions same day. 

After having an extraction, it is normal to be sore and uncomfortable for a few days. To help with proper healing and increased comfort, please follow post op instructions, which can be found here.


Botulinum toxin, better known as Botox, is an injection that prevents the nerve endings in muscles from conducting their signal. This ultimately keeps the muscles from contracting as they normally do. Botox injections are used across the medical field to treat a variety of issues. However, it is most famous for smoothing fine lines and wrinkles, and giving an overall youthful appearance. 

Although it may seem odd to see a dentist for Botox injections, dentists have an extremely in-depth education of the musculoskeletal structures of the head and neck. Dr. Malenfant has achieved even further training on how to effectively use Botox within these structures, and is a proud member of the American Academy of Facial Esthetics. 

Have issues with your temporomandibular joint (TMJ) or do you get headaches frequently? Botox can be extremely useful when treating temporomandibular disorders (TMD) and chronic migraines, and can be life changing for some individuals.


A denture is a removable appliance made for missing teeth and surrounding tissues. There are two types of dentures available which include partial and complete dentures. Partial dentures are used when some natural teeth remain, while complete dentures are used to completely replace all teeth. Dentures are made to resemble your natural teeth so there should be no noticeable change to your appearance. In fact, dentures may even improve your smile!

Partial Dentals – This restoration method is used to restore your smile and mouth function if all your teeth have been lost. The dentures are custom created to resemble natural teeth and are positioned into a patients mouth to take the place of where the natural teeth used to be. Complete dentures are removable and may require adjustments in order to create a proper fit with the gums and mouth. Partial Dentures – A removable partial denture is a device used when one or more natural teeth still remain. They usually consist of replacement teeth attached to a gum-colored plastic or metal base which is held in place in the mouth by either natural teeth or clasps.

"We have found an amazing provider in Dr. Marck. 

He and his staff are fantastic and compassionate, and they have a very practical approach to dentistry. I am so grateful that our teenage boys will grow up with such positive experiences in an area that many dread. Can't say enough great things about Dr. Marck and his entire practice."

- Kyle

Dr. Malenfant is very nice. I've had no issues with regular cleaning. Was recommended to another office for wisdom teeth removal and that went perfectly. Also had a permanent retainer removed with no issues here."

"Great place overall.

"The staff is on point, professional, and extremely friendly. 

The office is very nicely decorated & Dr. Marck regularly incorporates new dental technology into his practice. I was surprised a couple of weeks ago at my cleaning when the rinsing water was recently changed to be heated. It's the little things."

- terry

Dr. malefant is so patient and really takes the time to explain what's happening.

The office is always super friendly. They got me in last minute for an appointment. Dr.Malefant never makes you feel like a burden if I have additional questions..which I normally do. Highly recommend!!"

- Brian

He has a preventative approach while thinking outside the box for the best treatment for his clients' physical and financial well-being. I'm lucky that their office is only a few miles from my home and office, but I would make the drive anyway in Cincy to get this level of Dentistry."

Dr. Marck himself is a great dentist!!

- Cary

I realize the #1 attribute of an excellent dentist is SKILL but following closely behind is "bedside manner" and relatability…and fortunately, Dr. Malenfant possesses all of the above and then some. My experiences just get better each time I visit. Highly recommended!"

"She instantly makes you feel calmer and in good hands.

"dr. melenfant was so wonderful, helpful, and kind.

My son hadn't been to the dentist in a while and needed a cleaning. They were able to get us in quickly and we ended up seeing Dr. Malenfant for the cleaning and checkup. My son felt very comfortable with her and the rest of the team there. Couldn't ask for a better experience from the dentist. Highly recommend!"
