Treating Generations

Exceeding expectations since 1972. Our talented team has been treating families for generations. We go above and beyond to exceed your expectations in both the quality and comfort of your care.

Honest Treatments You deserve the best in dental care, and we strive daily to be the best by living and working with integrity. We believe in doing what’s right and will always make honest recommendations for your lasting health. We only treat what is necessary, when it is necessary, and when it is best for you. We are a practice you can trust.

Patient Education At Susquehanna Dental East, patient education is of the utmost importance. Because we want you to be well informed, we take the time to make sure you can both visually and verbally understand exactly why treatment is necessary. Your confidence and full understanding allows you to make the right decisions for your health and will guide you on the path to lasting wellness.

Personable Team We love the opportunity we have to build personal relationships with our patients. In order to build that kind of relationship, we take the time to get to know you personally. We listen to your needs, wants, and desires so we can provide you with the customized care you deserve. As we get to know you, we are able to positively transform your smile and your life.

Cosmetic Dentistry For nearly 50 years we’ve been treating families across generations with professional high-quality dental care. Our cosmetic services supersede expectations, boost confidence, and help patients achieve beautiful, stunning smiles. Veneers, Tooth-Colored Fillings, Crowns, Bridges, Teeth Whitening and more — in every service always aim to deliver the best dental care around.

Comprehensive Family Dentistry Whether you are in need of a routine checkup or a more complex treatment in restorative, cosmetic, orthodontic or implant dentistry, we are willing and able to be your family’s comprehensive dentist in Harrisburg! Our dental services are provided at the hands of experts and are available for the entire family — including pediatric dentistry for kids three and up. All of your family’s dental needs can be met conveniently under one roof!

Affordable Services We believe that quality dentistry should also be affordable. Because of this, we offer dental care to the community at a reasonable price. We try to be as flexible as possible when setting up payment, offering help such as an in-house Smile Plan and working with you to create a treatment plan within your needs and budget.
