Welcome to Albritton & Ardovino Dentistry
We have been serving the Alabaster community area since 2010 and have enjoyed establishing relationships with this growing community. We are conveniently located in the Alabaster Promenade next to American Family Care.
Using Innovative Technology
We use digital x-ray films and intra-oral cameras to help reduce radiation risks to patients, obtain the clearest images possible, and help diagnose decay in the early stages. Our x-ray films reduce the radiation by 80% compared to a standard dental film.
Unique New Patient Experience
At your initial visit the doctors will meet with you first allowing time to discuss all of your concerns. We will obtain a full mouth series of digital films, perform a periodontal exam, oral-cancer screening, and comprehensive exam to help formulate a treatment plan based off your individual needs.
Commitment to Continued Education
Drs. Albritton and Ardovino strive to stay abreast on the latest techniques in dentistry and materials to help provide the best treatment available. They both complete over 50 hours of continuing education credits per year.
File all insurance
We are happy to file any dental insurance you may have as a benefit to you.

I have raved about all of the wonderful services and wonderful people with your dental office. Thank you for making me feel “at home”.
I love the care I get from Dr. Ardovino! She remembers her patients and is very committed to their dental health and care.
Dr. Ardovino and Dr. Albritton are very gentle. The whole staff is very friendly and concerned about making your visit as comfortable as possible. Best experience I’ve ever had visiting a dentist office.
Wonderfully friendly and professional staff! Most pleasant dental experience in my 58 years. Actually looking forward to my next visit. Caring, skilled, and very informative about and during procedure. Highly recommend!!!
Dr. Albritton is great. First time I’ve had dental work that didn’t hurt when I was being numbed. The staff is great and friendly.
Great doctors and staff that are friendly and bring a great environment to their dental office. Nothing but the best from Albritton and Ardovino.
I have been to other dentists about the same problem I was having and they just shrugged me off. Albritton and Ardovino Family Dentistry gave me all the options and helped me to work out a plan of action. They are awesome!
Every one was very professional, very pleasant and friendly. This has been the best dental experience I have ever had.
I loved it. I felt my cleaning and exam were thorough and quite pleasant. Everything was explained well and I left with products that I definitely needed–so glad I chose to switch to this dental practice. Makes my former dental experiences seem like they were just going through the motions and definitely not up to date on the latest findings/methods in dentistry.
As a new patient, I felt very comfortable with all staff that I encountered. I even told other people how enjoyable my experience was. You don’t often hear Enjoyable and Dentistry in the same sentence!!
