Quality Dental Care for You and Your Family

                             Welcome to Tigani Family Dentistry, Your Dentist in Pike Creek, Delaware


Tigani Family Dentistry has moved locations after 47 years on Gilpin Ave. Gilpin Medical was sold making it a very bitter sweet decision to relocate. Looking for a new location was very difficult in the current market. We were also looking for a location that we could grow into and make it our new home for years to come. Our new address is 4600 New Linden Hill Rd Wilmington Delaware 19808 Suite 202 in Brownstone Plaza. Our current phone number (302-571-8740) will remain the same. Our last day on Gilpin Ave was October 19th 2022. Our first day at our new location was November 7th 2022. We hope that everyone will follow along with us to our new location but we do understand this may not be convenient for everyone.
