Wellsboro, Pa. – After several years of partnering informally, Tioga Dental Services are officially joining Laurel Health Centers starting November 1, 2019. The group hopes that this move will expand access to dental care in the general area, especially for rural families who may not have been able to access or afford it.
“This will be wonderful for our community,” says Michael Telehany, DDS. “Becoming part of the Laurel Health Center family allows us to provide even more services through a sliding fee scale to ensure all patients receive excellent dental care.”
North Penn plans to expand and renovate the Lawrenceville clinic to improve access and upgrade equipment to better serve those in need.
“For many years, the Laurel Health Centers have provided space for Tioga Dental Services at our Lawrenceville clinic, and in November, we are taking our partnership to a new level to expand services and champion affordable dental care for all patients,” says James A. Nobles, president and CEO of the Laurel Health Centers.
The Laurel Health Centers accept all major commercial insurances as well as Medical Assistance, Medicare, and offers sliding fee programs for uninsured, underinsured, and income-eligible patients.
Dentists Michael Telehany, Fred Wood, and the dental services team will continue to practice in their current location at 34 E Lawrence Rd in Lawrenceville; all the office’s contact information remains the same.
