Agnini Family Dental is an upscale general dentistry facility offering dental care through comprehensive and preventive screenings, implants and denture support, cosmetic crowns, veneers and orthodontic services, as well as snoring and sleep apnea treatment…all while making patients feel like they are relaxing in a seaside cottage!
Dr. Michael Agnini and his wife, Donna, have two free-standing dental offices in Lakeland. The first opened in 1979 near Southgate shopping center. In 2009, the second loction opened on Lakeland Hills Boulevard in the hospital district. The latter office serves as the main operating facility with state-of-the-art dental machinery juxtaposed with delicate waterfall features viewable from eight of 12 operatory offices.
Dr. Mike feels extremely fortunate to be working alongside his two grown sons, Dr. Matt and Dr. Drew Agnini; as well as his Orthodontic daughter-in-law, Dr. Derry Agnini. As a team, including Dr. Mike’s wife Donna and their third child Ashley, who is a hygienist, this family is devoted to meeting patients’ dental needs.
All of the dentists are graduates of the University of Maryland. In addition, the dentists have completed post-graduate studies, as well as many hours a year in continuing education. All hygienists are degreed, licensed professionals. All dental assistants are radiology and expanded duties certified.
The entire Agnini family believes dental care is a worldwide need. Dr. Mike, his wife Donna, and his children are devoted to treating people in third world nations. They have been involved in dental mission trips to Russia, Africa, South America and Southeast Asia. In addition to his global work, Dr. Matt volunteers his time treating patients at Lakeland Volunteers in Medicine (LVIM) and has played an active role in the Give Kids a Smile campaign at Traviss Career Center. Dr. Drew also volunteers his time treating patients at LVIM. Hygienists Ashley Agnini and Sue Ellen Williams both accompanied Dr. Mike to Ethiopia last year to teach hygiene in a new school in Mekelle.
Giving back to the community doesn’t stop there. The entire staff regularly seeks out ways to volunteer locally. They are involved in The March of Dimes, Habitat for Humanity, LVIM, Feed Children Everywhere, Lighthouse Ministries’ food drives and Angel Trees. They also worked hand in hand with the Salvation Army to provide a free dental clinic for the underprivileged. Agnini donates dental supplies regularly to families in need and is always on the look-out for new ways to give back to the community.
The Lakeland Area Chamber of Commerce is proud to present Agnini Family Dental with the January 2013 Small Business of the Month award.
