Our Services

Creating and maintaining beautiful smiles in Vermont for over 40 years

Our three dentists and seven hygienists offer quality dental care in warm surroundings using state-of-the-art dental equipment. We also place a great deal of emphasis on patient education. The more we can teach our patients how to maintain their optimum dental health, the better! A preventive dental regimen, including regular dental cleanings, helps to preserve the teeth, gums, and bone, avoiding breakdown in oral health.

PREVENTATIVE

Orthodontic care (braces) is not just for the younger patient.

Today it is more and more common for adult patients to seek orthodontic treatment. We are fortunate to have two board-certified orthodontists at our office every week. They provide treatment to patients of all ages and also provide follow-up care. Many local dental practices refer their patients to Stowe Family Dentistry for orthodontic care - all patients are welcome.

Stowe Family Dentistry is a very child-friendly practice

Stowe Family Dentistry is a very child-friendly practice, introducing children to a lifetime of good dental habits. In fact, with good habits and regular dental checkups, it is entirely possible for children to reach adulthood without any cavities.
