Duncansville Dentist Renovates Office to Add New Operatories

DUNCANSVILLE, PA--(Marketwired - February 25, 2015) - Dr. Neal Locker, who provides Duncansville cosmetic dentistry, is expanding his office to add new operatories and more office space.

The renovation, which is expected to be finished sometime early this year, involves adding 850 square feet for two new operatories and an additional workspace for Dr. Locker's staff. The additional office space will be converted into an operatory, if needed. Dr. Locker also plans to add another full-time dental hygienist.

Dr. Locker, the owner of Gentle Family Dentistry, said his practice has needed the extra space and an additional hygienist for quite a while. As the office has added services and more technology, more patients have selected the Duncansville dental practice for their dentistry needs.

"By adding more rooms and more staff, we can better serve our patients," Dr. Locker said. "We can ultimately see more patients and make sure no one has to wait long to see one of our wonderful hygienists."

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. Dr. Locker introduced The Wand to help ease patients' fears of the dentist. Now his patients can expect pain-free 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 Field in Hampton, Va. He later joined the U.S. Public Health Service and served one year on a 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.
