About Our Practice

Relationship-Based Dentistry

Our Mission

We’re committed to providing excellence for our patients and community. We always put relationships first, and seek to build a solid foundation of trust with each person that walks through our doors. Our goal is to offer high quality care and education to each patient so that they’ll know what’s best for their overall health and wellbeing.

Our Core Values

Listening, Understanding, Compassion, Patience, Integrity

Empathetic and Caring

Get To Know Dr. Christopher Cummings

Dr. Cummings was born and raised in Indianapolis and went to Ball State University, where he earned a Bachelor of Science degree in Biology. After taking some time off to discover what he wanted to do, he began to research dentistry and fell in love with it immediately.

The Dean of Students at the Indiana University School of Dentistry recommended he wait a year before applying, but Dr. Cummings was determined to get started as soon as possible. Despite all odds, he was accepted on his first try, and he’s been practicing now for over 12 years. He received his DDS from Indiana University in 2012.

Dr. Cummings is passionate about building strong relationships of trust with his patients, which he believes is necessary for truly patient-focused dentistry. It takes time and effort to provide individualized care, and Dr. Cummings is excellent at working efficiently and thoroughly with each patient. 

When he’s not in the office, he enjoys spending time with his wife and cats, practicing yoga and meditation, playing guitar, and hiking.

Compassionate Care

Meet Our Team

First Visit?

What Patients Can Expect

When you first walk through our doors, you’ll be greeted by our comfortable environment and our friendly office staff. You’ll be invited to sit down and relax as you fill out any new patient forms prior to your appointment (unless you already filled out your forms online). Once those are complete and your hygienist (or assistant) is ready for you, we’ll invite you back into one of our patient rooms. 

If you’re taking advantage of our new patient special, you’ll receive a cleaning, comprehensive exam, and x-rays, and Dr. Cummings will sit down with you to discuss the results. If, during your exam, Dr. Cummings finds that you are experiencing gum disease, you will not receive a regular cleaning, but a deep cleaning that may require a separate appointment. However, if everything looks good, you’ll be able to schedule your next appointment in the front office. If anything needs extra attention, Dr. Cummings will explain his findings, take time to address any questions or concerns you might have, and make any further treatment recommendations.

Working to Change Lives

Community Outreach

At Cummings Dental, we believe that our responsibility goes beyond our office walls.  That's why we've created a give-back program to the local Bloomington Community.  We believe that every human being should have access to nutritious food.  Unfortunately, this isn't the case.  We think it's up to us to use our resources and agency to help the members of our community who are in need.  That's why we've committed to donate $5 for every new patient that joins our practice to those who don't have access to this basic necessity.  Every month we will make this donation to an organization that will be able to help provide the much-needed nutritious food.  Those donations will be made transparently on our social media platforms so that you can see where we are making an impact together.
