2900 Greenbriar Dr., Springfield



Dr. Tanya Desanto opened Prairie Dental Group in 1994 and loves creating smiles and transforming people’s lives. She has three associates, and her dental practice is the only all-female practice in Illinois.

Dentistry is truly a passion of hers and is all she ever wanted to do. She has always loved science, and for her this is a way to combine both art and science. “This is the greatest job in the world,” she said. “I can set my own schedule, and I love what I do. It’s hard to call it a job. It’s more of a craft.”

Her state-of-the-art office offers general and cosmetic dentistry. “Our patients trust us,” she said. “They know they’ll be comfortable and have a great outcome,” and points to their Smile Gallery as proof. Her staff truly cares about the person, and her patients refer others to them.

They even have several international patients. “Our reputation gets out there,” she said. She and her associates are members of the American Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry, and people come to them because of their credentials.

She believes in giving back to the community. She supports domestic violence programs and participates in dental clinics. She related a story about a woman from Litchfield who was a finalist in a national smile contest a few years ago. The show contacted her and asked if she would do the woman’s makeover.

“I’m living the dream,” she said.
