Making smiles in Central Illinois since 1955 and the Decatur area since 1962.

Welcome to Stone Dental, a three generation dental practice. In 1955 Dr. Howard Stone began practicing in his hometown of Clinton, Illinois. In 1962, Dr. Howard decided to move his family and his dental practice to Decatur, Illinois where he stayed until his son Dr. Charles Stone moved the practice to Mount Zion at its current location. Dr. Howard Stone retired in 2000, but still is a familiar face around the office.  

Our dental professionals know that dental health is not only about bright smiles: it’s about having healthy teeth and gums. Our mission is to help our patients accomplish dental health in a compassionate way. We strive to treat our patients as our family members would want to be treated. 

We aim to educate our patients in a safe environment while offering them necessary comprehensive care.  By combining the latest technology with traditional techniques, we give our patients the best care we can.
