“I perform all dental services in my office, regardless of whether you are here for a complicated procedure or a routine cleaning. In my practice there is no volume, patients are seen on time and my fees are the same for everyone. My patients receive quality and service in a relaxed, professional, friendly atmosphere. Everyone deserves a pleasant dental experience.” – Dr. Max Lingo
A Dental Office That’s Different
Unlike most dental offices, Dr. Max Lingo provides all of the services himself. Yes, even preventative cleanings! This allows Dr. Lingo to better communicate with his patients and enhances their level of trust. Patients are not interrupted nor delayed due to overlapping appointments. Our office respects your time, just as you respect the doctor’s time. Here, you’re not just a number. We are genuinely focused on the quality of patient care, as well as creating a positive experience you’ll always remember.
Meet Dr. Max Lingo
Dr. Lingo has been bringing comprehensive dental care to the Evansville, Indiana area for over 4 decades. Dr. Lingo is native to Evansville, having graduated from Rex Mundi High School in 1966 and the University of Evansville in 1970. He then went on to study dentistry at Indiana University where he graduated with honors and received his Doctor of Dental Surgery in 1974. His original practice was founded on Diamond Avenue, but due to the road expansion, Dr. Lingo was forced to relocate his practice to Mariner Drive in 2005.
As a dentist, Dr. Lingo has a special touch when it comes to creating aesthetic treatments for his patients. Part of this comes from his background as a dental lab technician while he was in college. His understanding of function, contour and design allow him to provide extra level of dental care that many
other practices do not.
In addition to pursuing a constant flow of continuing education programs, Dr. Max Lingo is an active member in the following organizations:
- Dental Organization for Conscious Sedation
- International Congress of Oral Implantology
- American Association of Implant Dentistry
- American Association of Cosmetic Dentistry
- American Dental Association (Life Member Status)
- Indiana Dental Association (Life Member Status)
In his spare time, Dr. Lingo enjoys travelling, photography, feeding the wildlife in his back yard, and spending time with his beloved dogs.
Meet the Staff
We’re proud to be a true family practice, with members of Dr. Lingo’s own family helping the office run smoothly.
Sam, Dr. Lingo’s son, graduated cum laude from the University of Southern Indiana in 2005, earned an MBA in 2008 from the University of North Florida, and has been a part of our practice since he was 16. As a teenager, he learned to assist with dental tooth charting using the “old school” red and blue pencil method, years before computers were used in dental operatories. Having a strong background in dental assisting, Sam understands the clinical side of dentistry; he has the ability to see and explain treatment in a logical way that is easy for patients to understand. Sam began learning about practice management when he was a teenager and was instrumental in setting up our first computer. Over the years, he has proved himself invaluable as our technology expert. Sam administrates the day to day operations and business of our practice. He has extensive knowledge of the insurance industry and works hard to help our patients maximize their insurance plan benefits. Sam is especially empathetic to patients who have dental fear and request sedation. He understands fear is a road block to optimal dental health and goes above and beyond to ensure our patients’ comfort and care and will forfeit his own lunch time if needed to drive a sedated patient home following a procedure. When not working, Sam enjoys cooking, spoiling his two dogs Jasmine and Georgia, traveling and attending Miami Hurricane football and UK basketball games.
MaryAnn holds an MA in Communication Disorders from St. Louis University and for many years was the first patient telephone contact and the first person to greet patients. Working “behind the scenes” since 2012 when Sam assumed leadership of our team, MaryAnn continues to work closely with Sam to ensure our ongoing commitment to the highest quality patient care and service in our patient-centered, relationship-based practice. As an experienced writer, she has a proven track record for writing winning insurance appeals. MaryAnn’s attention to detail makes her the perfect team member to be our quality assurance and quality control specialist. MaryAnn has a passion for yoga and all the benefits a yoga practice brings, but her greatest love is spending time with family.
Caitlyn, originally from Washington, IN, is a 2014 graduate of the USI Dental Assisting Program. Caitlyn first caught our eye during her student rotation in our practice. Unanimously, we agreed she embodied the skills and personality we want on our team and she joined us upon graduation. Caitlyn is a DANB certified assistant as well as certified in coronal polishing, fluoride application and expanded duties. She particularly enjoys assisting with surgical procedures like extractions. Caitlyn has an endearing, upbeat, outgoing personality and always has a smile on her face. In her spare time, Caitlyn enjoys a variety of fitness activities and spending time with her family and friends.
