About

Bio

My name is Renae Roelofs and I am a general dentist with a special interest in Esthetics. I love to create beautiful, happy, HEALTHY smiles. My husband, Dr. David Larson and I have been in private practice located on Midlothian Turnpike since 1985. Our business name is Personal Dental Care, Inc. We are dedicated to the education of our patients and we provide the highest quality dental care with personalized service to patients of all ages. Our practice is unique in that between the two of us, we offer ALL aspects of general dentistry including fillings, crowns, bridges, root canals, extractions and dentures. In addition we have extensive training in non-surgical periodontal (gum) and migraine therapy, sleep apnea, implants, Orthodontics ( Invisalign, Fast Braces, Six Month Smiles) veneers and sedation dentistry.
