About Us

The staff at Squaw Grove Dental has been providing comprehensive dental care in the greater Hinckley area since 1994.  The name of the practice is derived from Squaw Grove Township, which originated in the 1830’s.  An early settler in the area found a grove of trees west of present day Hinckley, where Native American women were tending to their settlement.

Our practice is dedicated to dental health, and our staff provides a friendly, comfortable and caring small town environment.
