  • General and preventive dentistry
  • Cosmetic dentistry
  • Crowns and bridges
  • Periodontal examinations and treatment
  • Root canal therapy
  • Dentures and partials
  • Dental implants

We also offer the latest in dental technology, which means more accurate diagnoses by our doctors and less time in the treatment chair for our patients.

If you have questions about our practice or about any of the dental services we provide, we are always available to answer your questions. Let us be your dentist of choice in Corry! We look forward to meeting you and your entire family.
