A Positive Experience
Building a foundation of trust by treating our patients as special individuals is vital to our success. We understand how uneasy some patients may feel about their dental visits, and how we can make a difference in providing a relaxing and positive experience.
Our dental office, located at 2018 York Road in Gettysburg, was designed with your needs in mind. From the moment you enter our building, you will feel relaxed and comfortable. You may enjoy a warm or cold beverage of your choice by the fireplace in our waiting room.
Our staff members are more than happy to pamper you during your dental visit. You may relax with our lavender neck wraps or hand mitts while watching a movie during your visit. Or try wearing a headset to listen to your favorite music selections.
We have a couple of treatment rooms which are completely private. Also, each of our rooms are themed. You will get to choose your favorite room for your future visits! Choose the private spa room, where you can have a complimentary paraffin hand wax treatment while listening to soothing music during your dental visit. For kids of all ages, our Disney Room is very popular! Are you a fan of the arts? We have the Kinkade room which features some of Thomas Kinkade’s favorite scenes. Are you an outdoorsman? Then you will love our fishing and hunting room! Sit by the fireplace, glance through our photo album of some of our stellar catches! We have rooms to satisfy all patients!
For our patients who desire a stronger feeling of relaxation, we have nitrous oxide or “laughing gas” available upon request.
Over her 25 years of dental experience, Dr. Tempel has developed a special technique that allows her to give incredibly comfortable injections; so comfortable, in fact, that many patients can’t believe they even received an injection.
Our entire team is dedicated to providing you with excellent, personalized care and service to make your visits as comfortable and pleasant as possible.
You and your family are invited to experience beautiful and comfortable dentistry in our Gettysburg office.
A standard of excellence in personalized dental care enables us to provide the quality dental services our patients deserve. We provide comprehensive treatment planning and use restorative and cosmetic dentistry to achieve your optimal dental health. Should a dental emergency occur, we make every effort to see and care for you as soon as possible.
Education & Prevention
As a practice, we are true believers that preventative care and education are the keys to optimal dental health. We strive to provide “dental health care” vs. “disease care.”. That’s why we focus on thorough exams – checking the overall health of your teeth and gums, performing oral cancer exams, and taking x-rays when necessary. We also know that routine cleanings, flossing, sealants, and fluoride are all helpful in preventing dental disease. Not only are we focused on the beauty of your smile, we’re also concerned about your health. A review of your medical history can help us stay informed of your overall health, any new medications, and any illnesses that may impact your dental health.
Infection control in our office is also very important to us. To protect our patients and ourselves, we strictly maintain sterilization and cross contamination processes using standards recommended by the American Dental Association (ADA), the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA), and the Center for Disease Control (CDC).
Training & Expertise
As your dental health professionals, we want you to be confident knowing that we are a team of highly trained and skilled clinicians. We pride ourselves in providing the care you need to keep your smile healthy. To give you the best possible service and results, we are committed to continual education and learning. We attend dental lectures, meetings, and dental conventions to stay informed of new techniques, the latest products, and the newest equipment that a modern dental office can utilize to provide state-of-the-art dental care. Also, being members of various professional dental associations helps us to stay abreast of the changes and recommendations for our profession.
