As a team of dental professionals, we are dedicated to providing you with quality dental services in a friendly, caring environment. We love what we do, and we’re truly focused on what is best for you and how to maintain your smiles for a lifetime.
Dr. Fishbaine and his staff offer a wide range of dental services including cosmetic improvement and enhancement, comprehensive restorative dentistry, implants, removable dentures and partial dentures, children’s dentistry, root canal therapy, and many others. We are not a “one size fits all” practice. We believe that we cannot assess your needs until we examine you, talk to you, and get to know you. Our goal for you is optimal dental health. How we help you get there is what makes us unique.
Our state-of-the-art office is located at 476 Rolling Ridge Drive and is on the first floor of the Windmere Centre, a modern professional building in Scenery Park. This impressive building features easy access to our office from South Atherton Street or from Rolling Ridge Drive. Our current location features a comfortable spa-like reception area complete with a massage chair, a fruit and juice bar, and new magazines! Please explore our website or call our office (814) 238-6800 for details to find out how we can take care of your dental needs.
