About Cortland Dental & Braces

Stress-free Dentistry

Don’t be afraid of the dentist! Our offices are designed to be comfortable and welcoming for all patients, including families. Our goal is to teach young patients and their parents that the dentist office doesn’t have to be scary. Our friendly staff members will make your visit as simple and fun as possible.

Preventative Care

Educating children on proper dental health at a young age will have a far-reaching effect on their overall health as they grow up. We teach young patients and their parents how to combat childhood tooth decay, cavities, and other preventable oral health issues.

Personalized Treatment

No two patients are alike, so our treatments are not one-size-fits-all. Our staff creates a custom treatment plan for every patient to ensure that everyone gets the care they need. We’re happy to answer your questions and help you decide what’s right for you and your family.

We’re committed to being the preferred dentist for Massachusetts’ families, so we’ve built our practice to include:

  • Comfortable, family-friendly offices, and treatment rooms
  • A variety of payment options to suit the needs of our patients
  • Easy, flexible appointment times and scheduling
  • Quality care for children, parents, and other family members
Thank you for giving us the opportunity to care for your family.
