Duncansville Dentist Now Premier Provider of Invisalign

DUNCANSVILLE, PA--(Marketwired - July 17, 2015) - Dr. Neal Locker, a top choice for cosmetic dentistry, is now a premier provider of Invisalign, a revolutionary orthodontic treatment that gives patients a way to straighten teeth without the hassle of metal brackets or wires.

Invisalign uses clear plastic aligners to gradually move teeth into a more appropriate position. The trays are virtually invisible and can be easily removed for eating and cleaning. Dr. Locker recently was upgraded from a preferred to premier Invisalign provider by Align Technology, the makers of Invisalign.

“I’m happy to now be a premier provider of Invisalign, a system that can help both adults and teens,” said Dr. Locker, who operates Gentle Family Dentistry. “With Invisalign, patients no longer have to deal with the embarrassment of metal braces, and the treatment is much less invasive than traditional braces.”

Dr. Locker’s Invisalign promotion came after the practice increased its number of successful Invisalign cases. The practice will now be featured on Invisalign’s website as the supporting practice for the Blair County area.

“Our Invisalign patients are quite pleased with our ability to address their concerns with a painless, less invasive method than metal braces,” Dr. Locker said.

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, 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 delivery every time. Dr. Locker introduced The Wand to help ease patients’ fears of the dentist. Now his patients can expect pain-free Novocain delivery 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.
