We at Johnstown Dental Care take pride in carrying on the tradition of providing exceptional dental care in this community.
In honor of the dental professionals who came before us, you will find an antique dental museum the moment you walk into our office. Amazingly, it includes some of the first dental instruments used by Dr. Preston, who was the first to practice dentistry in the Johnstown community back in the early 1900s.
