About Dental Care Associates

Dental Care Associates was founded in 1979 and now has five offices in Central Pennsylvania The first office was opened in Williamsport in 1979.

Over the next five years, offices were also opened in Holidaysburg (1980),  Johnstown (1981),  Greensburg (1982), and Selinsgrove (1984).

Our dentists are supported by a team of experienced dental assistants and a licensed dental hygienist. Skilled laboratory technicians at our on-site dental care labs fabricate full and partial dentures, orthodontic models, bleaching trays and splints. Having on-site labs allows us to deliver dentures to patients in as little as two days as well as control the quality of the lab services.

High quality dental care service is our goal, but quality dental care service is more than the technical aspects of treating diseased tissue and maintaining good oral health. Dentistry is a highly personalized service that involves numerous interpersonal relationships between patients and our staff. We view each patient as special; each deserves our best effort. Dental Care Associates is a 42 North Dental Care, PLLC practice and is owned and operated by licensed dentists.
