Dr. Henley was born in Benton, Illinois, and lived there as a young child until moving to Downers Grove. His interest in dentistry dates back to 1962 when, at age 6, a bicycle accident forever changed his smile. The loss of his front teeth and several lengthy visits with his dentist only further planted the seed of his curiosity. Dr. Henley enjoys furthering his education, traveling, and spending time with his wife, children, and two Bengal cats. In his spare time, he enjoys golfing, boating, and living life to its fullest.
Dr. Henley attended Southern Illinois University in Carbondale, Illinois. He then went on to graduate from Northwestern University’s School of Dentistry in 1993. Dr. Henley received his Fellowship in 2007 from the Academy of General Dentistry and in the latter part of 2012, became a candidate for Fellowship with the American Association of Implant Dentistry. He is an active member of several prestigious dental organizations, including the American Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry, the Academy of Computerized Dentistry of North America, the American Dental Association, the Chicago Dental Society, the Illinois Dental Society, the International College of Cranio-Mandibular Orthopedics, and the International Association of Orthodontics. For nearly 25 years, Dr. Henley has built a reputation as one of Naperville’s top dentists.
Dr. Henley is experienced in numerous types of dentistry, including preventive, cosmetic, and restorative work. He’s also practiced in periodontics, orthodontics, endodontics, TMJ/TMD treatment, sleep apnea treatment, and sedation dentistry.
Dr. Henley treats every patient as a guest and believes their time in the office should be a relaxing, rewarding experience. He listens carefully to his patients in order to fully understand what they want and strives to treat them in a caring and comfortable environment. Dr. Henley believes ongoing education is a part of his responsibility to patients, and visitors to the practice can enjoy the advances of the latest dental methods and technology.

Very caring people. They put your needs first and try to help find financing alternatives. They are very clear as to your treatment plan and the cost. You know upfront what needs to be done and the costs involved (getting real time insurance coverage) so there are no surprises. The environment is comfortable and modern. Very up to date with dentist methods and technology. Everyone in the office is caring and friendly. Dr. Henley is easy to talk to and shows concern for his patients well-being during treatment. He walks you through his process so you know what's happening and how long he expects your visit to last.read more

I had the most amazingly great and Complete treatment- for a badly decayed molar IN ONE (1) DAY. You did read that right. One day, complete. Every team member was top of their skill set and relaxed. Doctor Henley just personable, a perfect mix of funny and serious. He understands the biometric patient needs and CAD-cam’ed the Onlay before my eyes. Saved the nerve and Greatest amount possible of the tooth. I got a superb coffee from the coffee bar while waiting.read more

The entire staff at Center for Dentistry provides a great experience. They are extremely knowledgeable and have always provided me with the care and insight I need to ensure I never have major issues with my teeth. I can also rest assured that if any emergency arises, they are more than willing to make time to see me, even on days that the office is closed. There is no reason to see any other dentist!read more

The staff here have been absolutely wonderful and accommodating. My family has been going here for 3 years or so, and both Ms. Stephanie and Bitsy have been wonderful to work with. Ms. Stephanie has been great with reminding us about appointments, and has been able to help squeeze us in on short notice. Dr. Henley (Doc) has a great sense of humor, is honest, and makes visits enjoyable. We've had cleanings, x-rays, wisdom teeth pulled, and dental implants done here, cavities filled, as well as teeth whitening, and a mouth guard made.Thank you for such great customer service!read more

Hi! My name is Kristen, I am 26, and I have been coming to Dr. Henley for 15 years. Yes, you read that correctly! Fifteen years!! Myself, and my entire family! Dr. Henley and his incredible staff have helped my family feel confident about smiling, since we all previously suffered from bad teeth. One major point I would like to mention is, I am terrified of the dentist. Absolutely terrified. It’s very hard to get myself to go; but because of Dr. Henley and all of the wonderful men and women that work for him, they have always made me feel so comfortable and the only tears I have cried here...were out of happiness!! They always ask to make sure how I am doing (my pain tolerance is incredibly low when it comes to my teeth—if something bothers me they will stop immediately and try to work around it). My parents did not have the access to such a high quality dentist back in the day, and my brother and I desperately needed braces/cosmetic surgery and work. My brother and I were incredibly depressed as children because we were so unhappy with our teeth. We barely smiled. After Dr. Henley and his staff worked their magic on our teeth, we haven’t STOP smiling!! And we get compliments on on our teeth ALL of the time!! That makes us feel pretty wonderful. :)All of the people here are our family now, and we are forever grateful, and indebted to them for truly improving our lives more than we ever thought possible.The staff is also very diligent on keeping in touch with you. They will call you every 6 months if you haven’t made an appointment for a cleaning to make sure you come in! Not only are my family and I’s teeth aesthetically pleasing, but they are very very healthy—which is THE most important thing. We have never had any issues with insurance, overpaying, or paying for things we never had done. If you are looking for a dentist and staff that honestly love their jobs so much it translates into a love for you, and the health/care of your teeth—come here! You will NOT be disappointed. They are all intelligent, friendly and compassionate. There is a reason we refuse to go to any other dentist out there! Lol! :)read more

Office staff is personable, but their billing practices are questionable. They definitely push to have EVERY little thing taken care of.
I love this place! Very professional with a strong personal touch. Dr Yang and the staff are fantastic. An added bonus for me is they are a high tech office and you can get all reminders and make changes right on your smartphone. Best dental care in town. No doubt.
My kids and I have been going here for our dental care for years. It is always a great experience. I highly recommend Dr. Hutnik and his staff.
Tru Family Dental is filled with experienced, patient and kind providers! They are welcoming and professional! I trust them with the dental care of my children and will continue to recommend them as providers.
Friendly people, Aaron makes the visit less of a stress. He is very nice and professional, they all are. Thank you Tru Family Dental!!
