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.

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

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

I have been neglecting my dental care for several years. I found Tru Family Dental Naperville and an very happy with my overall experience. Dental hygienist Nicole was a pleasure to deal with and very knowledgeable. She explained everything that was needed. Next I dealt with Dr Henley and dental assistant Stephanie. Working with both of them had me at ease with all the work I had to get done. I highly recommend this dental office for all you dental needs. I am glad I found a place I like. Thank you Nicole, Stephanie and Dr Henley for fixing what I need and making all my time in the office enjoyable.read more

This all starts several years ago when we were looking for a dentist for our son who had a traumatic experience with a previous dentist. Dr. Henley was the most patient, the most empathetic and caring dentist we had ever been around. He took an extraordinary amount of time comforting our young son and talked to him about each step of the procedure and would not proceed until my son gave the green light! From that moment Dr. Henley has been our family dentist. He and his staff certainly make you feel cared for and genuinely make you feel that your satisfaction is their top goal. This type of experience was not a one and done, rather, this is based on years of multiple visits by all of us. Some scheduled and some in the middle of the night. Regardless of when, Dr. Henley leaves you knowing about his care for people and that he cares about his craft. The most recent example of his caring and professionalism happened last week. I am less than two weeks of now calling Ann Arbor, MI our home and I woke up with a tooth ache that was so painful I could feel my heart beating in my entire lower left jaw! I made and emergency visit to a local office near my new home only to leave there still in pain and before I was out of the parking lot I was calling Dr. Henley. Night and day difference between my experiences with Dr. Henley and his staff and the office I had just walked out of.He fit me in and I made the 4 hour trip to Naperville actually looking forward to going to the dentist! He identified the issue (different from the AA diagnosis) and fixed me right up! Thank you Dr. Henley for your caring, your expertise and for a staff that shares your values on how to treat people.My family and I will be making the 4 hour drive for our dentistry needs without hesitation. Enough said!read more

I am so thankful to have been referred to this dental office! I have had many negative experiences with dentists in the past. I was looking for a dentist to look at an old root canal tooth that needed to be extracted. I scheduled a consult with Dr. Henley, expecting a brief chat about my situation. I was very pleasantly surprised at how the consult went. He spent about an hour with me, did some imaging, thoroughly explained all his observations and recommended procedures. He answered all my questions, and not once did I feel rushed. I come from a holistic background as well. Dr. Henley was very accepting of my ideas and thoughts from a holistic standpoint.I was terrified of having my molar pulled. However, the procedure went so well that Dr. Henley took the fear out of having this kind of procedure done again in the future. I feel confident in his expertise and experience.After my extraction, I did develop dry socket and was in pain longer than expected. Dr. Henley took me in, corrected the issue, and saw me several times to make sure that I was not in pain. He is caring and compassionate, and genuine.They are also very honest and upfront about finances and insurance coverage. They let you know in advance exactly what the costs will be so that there are no surprises of an unexpected expense.Dr. Henley and all the staff are all very friendly and kind. It’s always a pleasure to come back in.read more

I highly recommend Tru Dental to everyone! 5 Starread more

Dr. Carl is the best. The office staff is some of the worst I have ever seen or dealt with. They cancel appointments at the last minute with no notice. Claim I owe thousands of dollars from over twelve months ago, but can't seem to locate they ever notified me. They are the reason I need oral work from grinding my teeth dealing with the completely incompetent women in the front. If Laura answers the phone, just hang up.read more

Office staff is personable, but their billing practices are questionable. They definitely push to have EVERY little thing taken care of.

I plan to alert the state of Illinois's consumer fraud agencies and the BBB about Henley's office's deceitful practices. This office is dishonest and deceptive in how it charges and bills for services. This office demanded over $1410 instead of the $80 which they were owed. Before I had my procedure, they issued me a treatment plan which outlined the costs for each filling I needed. This treatment plan indicated that I was being charged a "discounted fee," which was less than the "standard fee" charged for the procedure. In three different places the treatment plan/contract clearly states that I am responsible for the "discounted fee," totaling $651--regardless of what my insurance pays. I signed the treatment plan to initiate the procedure and to guarantee payment totaling $651. My insurance paid everything but $80.00, leaving me responsible for the remaining $80. However, after the procedure, this office reneged on the treatment plan and decided to charge me the "standard fee" and said I was responsible for $1410! I would never have signed a treatment plan, nor agreed to have a procedure done if I thought I would be charged $1410. The document I signed (attached below) clearly indicates I am responsible for a total of $651. Yet, Henley's office is demanding $1410. For justification, they say the treatment plan is "only an estimate." That's true in so far as it is an estimate OF WHAT INSURANCE WILL PAY. It is NOT an estimate of what Henley's office will CHARGE. Henley's office initially said they were charging me a total of $651. They then changed that amount to $1410, after services were rendered. Essentially, they gave me a lower rate before the procedure and then they changed it to a significantly higher rater after the procedure. While I understand Henley's office cannot guarantee what an insurance company will pay, they are, nevertheless, responsible for what they themselves charge. It is utterly deceptive to tell a client that their charges are $651 BEFORE a procedure, but then to tell the client that they will be charged $1410 AFTER the procedure is complete. But this is how this office operated in my case. Again, they were owed $80, but told me that I was responsible for the $1410.The staff told me that "insurance billing is confusing," suggesting that I am at fault for not understanding how things work. Again, it is not the insurance billing or payment that is at issue. It is the fact that Henley's office charged me one price before the procedure and another, grossly inflated price, after the procedure. Like other reviewers, I too endured multiple sales pitches for products and services with each visit. For example, the hygienist, Veronica, made it a point to tell me how "excited" she was to talk about a new electric toothbrush, which she commended to me for purchase. It was a blatant sales pitch. Henley also pitched me what appear to be unnecessary procedures. The procedures Henley wanted me to have included a skin graft, a lower lip frenectomy, braces, and removal of recent composite fillings, which I received about a year before I saw him. After Henley, I went to another dentist. This new dentist made no mention of having any of those procedures done and did not commend any of them to me. I'm including the original treatment plan here so you can see it (click on his pictures to view it). Ask yourself, if this document was presented to you, what amount do you think you are responsible for paying when you sign this paper? And what would you think if, after services were rendered, you were told you owe $1410?read more

The worst dentist I’ve ever been to. He ruined my mouth, put an implant in a wrong position, did very bad looking crowns, missed dental material in my gum, and start having TMD because of his lack of expertise. all other dentists told me who’s the butcher who did this to you. Do your research first. I don’t recommend this butcher.read more
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!!
