Duncansville Dentist Completes Office Renovations

DUNCANSVILLE, PA--(Marketwired - April 21, 2015) - Dr. Neal Locker, a top Duncansville dentist, will complete his office expansion project by the end of April.

The expansion includes the addition of two new operatories and extra workspace for Dr. Locker's staff. By the end of the month, Dr. Locker plans to have all of the finishing touches in place -- even now, the construction is already complete and new equipment is installed in the new operatories. In addition to the expansion, Dr. Locker added a new salt-water fish tank for patients to enjoy.

"Nemo, Dory, and all of their friends will be swimming here soon," Dr. Locker said.

Dr. Locker is excited about his growing Duncansville practice. He even plans to bring on a new associate dentist. With the extra space and help, Gentle Family Dentistry will be able to treat more patients more quickly -- and still no waiting for a room to open up. Dr. Locker prides himself on staying up to date with current technology and helping his patients have a more comfortable and convenient experience.

"I know many dentists who let their practices dwindle when they begin to reach retirement age," Dr. Locker said. "When I turn the practice over to the new associate in a few years, I hope we're providing the best possible service to our patients."

Dr. Locker provides general dentistry, cosmetic dentistry and restorative dentistry.

Gentle Family Dentistry is a modern, five-operatory practice with state-of-the-art equipment. The practice, 510 Third Ave., offers cleanings, smile makeovers, crowns and bridges, dentures and partial dentures, Invisalign, deep bleaching, snoring and sleep apnea appliances, composite white fillings, root canal therapy, extractions and gum disease treatment. Gentle Family Dentistry offers nitrous oxide and oral conscious sedation for patients who have a fear of the dentist.

The Duncansville dental practice uses the latest technology to treat patients. The office offers digital X-rays, which reduce radiation by up to 90 percent, and The Wand for painless Novocain injections every time. Dr. Locker introduced The Wand to help ease patients' fears of the dentist. Now his patients can expect pain-free Novocain injections while they undergo restorative or cosmetic procedures.

Dr. Locker takes a special interest in nutrition and naturalistic health maintenance, and he works to educate patients on how their oral health affects their overall health. Dr. Locker writes and manages a blog on his website that provides dental health tips and discusses new studies and trends in dentistry.

Dr. Locker is a U.S. Army veteran who served in Vietnam. He grew up in Passaic, N.J., and attended Rutgers University for his undergraduate studies and then New Jersey Dental School (now Rutgers School of Dental Medicine). After graduating dental school, Dr. Locker joined the U.S. Air Force and spent three years at Langley Air Force Base in Hampton, Va. He later joined the U.S. Public Health Service and served one year on the Navajo reservation. Dr. Locker worked for general dental practices in both New Jersey and Pennsylvania before starting his own practice, Gentle Family Dentistry, in March 1994.
