Towanda, Pennsylvania — After months of hard work, Laurel Health has successfully opened its new dental clinic: Laurel Dental – Towanda.
Dr Clark Sparrow, who retired in 2020, wanted to ensure continued access to dental services in Towanda and turned to the Laurel Health Centers to continue his legacy of excellent dental care. Laurel Health acquired its old practice earlier this year and has been working hard to update the space and prepare a new dental team.
The newly renovated office has officially reopened as Dental Laurel – Towanda. The clinic provides comprehensive family dentistry services at 346 York Avenue in Towanda, PA and now sees patients of all ages.
On Tuesday, September 13, the team held a ribbon-cutting ceremony to commemorate the inauguration with Laurel leaders, dental clinic staff, and community leaders.
“We are excited to bring comprehensive dental care closer to home to our patients, and we are proud to serve this community,” shared James A. Nobles, president and CEO of Laurel Health Centers, in his remarks on the event. “We have diligently built an expert team of providers to carry on Dr. Sparrow’s legacy of personalized and compassionate dental care right here in Towanda.”
The clinic offers comprehensive family dentistry services to patients of all ages, including cleanings, diagnostic evaluations, imaging, fillings, crowns, implants, cosmetic dentistry, preventive treatments for teeth/gums and oral health education.
Laurel Health says it is also committed to providing affordable dental care for everyone, regardless of insurance status or ability to pay. The system offers a rolling fee program for income-eligible families to help fill coverage gaps, co-pays, medications and deductibles to ensure all patients receive the high-quality services they deserve.
The office accepts new patients and accepts a wide range of dental insurance plans. The clinic is still accredited with certain dental carriers, and if the clinic is not yet registered with a patient’s specific dental carrier but soon will be, the front desk will place them on a waiting list for an appointment once registered.
“Our goal is healthier smiles,” adds Krysta Wagner, Chief Operating Officer of Laurel Health Centers. “We want to improve access to affordable preventative dental services throughout the region by expanding our Laurel Dental clinics in Blossburg, Lawrenceville and Towanda.”
