Island Dental Studio has been ahead of the wave, actively investing in new equipment, new techniques and seeking new ways to give all of its patients a healthy, dazzling smile. Its doctors eagerly enroll in advanced education courses to learn about the latest techniques and procedures.


The Island Dental Studio office is designed to be pleasant, comfortable and secure. Its sterilization center utilizes state-of-the-art infection control procedures to ensure the health and safety of every patient. The operatory rooms offer a very warm and relaxing setting, enabling Island Dental patients to enjoy a positive treatment experience. Yet, there’s some things the people at Island Dental won’t change, downsize or streamline. The staff believes a friendly greeting, an inviting office, and treating you as a valued family member are as important to maintaining your dental health as is offering the latest high-tech innovation.

All three of the dentists in Island Dental Studio are raising families nearby. Like you, they understand the joys and stresses of family life—even how hard it is, sometimes, to encourage a youngster to brush after every meal! Dr. Sarah Aufderheide, her husband and their three children live on Kent Island. Dr. Dennis Cherry does a reverse commute across the bay bridge—he and his wife and daughter reside in Arnold. The Eastern Shore is home for Dr. C. Ronald Franks and his wife and daughter.

Along with Island Dental’s dentists, the entire staff is trained, qualified and dedicated to ensuring each of your visits is a warm, positive, beneficial experience. Patients often comment that Island Dental Studio puts them first. When there is an emergency, one of the dentists is always as near as a phone call. Even on holidays, late at night or during weekends. Of course, Island Dental has regular hours, too. The office is open 9 a.m. to 4 p.m., Monday, Wednesday, Thursday, and Friday. On Tuesday, the staff sees patients from 11 a.m. to 7 p.m., in order to accommodate those that need later appointments due to their schedule, i.e. work or school. Putting a patient first means Island Dental understands your time is precious. During your appointment, when you are in the dentist’s chair, the staff’s sole focus is you. You are No. 1.

Island Dental Studio practices general dentistry. It treats the entire family—from toddlers to senior citizens and offers a full range of services including, but not limited to, the continuing education of all patients in the basics of dental hygiene, comprehensive care including regular cleanings, filling cavities with mercury-free and metal-free material, crowns, veneers, professional in-office whitening, bridges, dentures, and restoration of implants.

Come visit and tour the office. The staff would love to show you the new digital imaging system. Patients no longer have to sit still holding large film bitewings in their mouth while an X-ray is taken. The new process reduces your exposure to radiation and utilizes a small sensor that captures the image. With advanced software, an Island Dental dentist can analyze your situation and present a treatment plan tailored to your specific needs immediately. Your smile is important to everyone at Island Dental Studio!
