Offering a wide range of dental health care

Dental medicine

Good dental care is important to maintaining overall health for people of all ages. The dentists and surgeons in Geisinger's Department of Dental Medicine and Oral Maxillofacial Surgery provide preventive, restorative and surgical care for adults and children.

We offer a range of dental medicine services, including cleanings and X-ray evaluations, implants, cosmetic dentistry, dentures and crowns. Our experienced surgeons remove impacted teeth, cysts, and tumors and also treat complications of the temporomandibular joints (TMJ).


What you should know about dental medicine
