Greetings to all from Lawrence Dental Excellence!!,

As you are all probably aware, the Governor of Pennsylvania, Tom Wolf, after thorough consultation with the Department of Health and the State Board of Dentistry, shut down dental offices, effective March 19. Since that time, we have been complying with the Governor’s order – remaining open for emergency procedures only to do our part to prevent the spread of the COVID-19 virus, and to deliver a different cleaning method for the dental operatory.

We are pleased to announce that the Department of Health revised its COVID-19 Dental Health Care Personnel guidance on May 8 to reflect the Governor’s strategic phased reopening plan. The revised guidance lifts the prohibition on “elective” (non-urgent) dental procedures. What does that mean for you and your family? We are ready to see you now for a vast array of dental services and needs!

Throughout this process, our goal has been to do no harm and to protect our patients (and ourselves), just as some of us did way back in the 1980s when we faced a similar crisis with the AIDS outbreak. Our precautions changed; all procedures necessitated the use of gloves and face protection. So, we continue to follow this rapidly-changing situation and continue to put the safety and health of patients and staff first. The revised guidance further directs dental providers to apply their clinical judgment, knowledge of COVID-19 cases in their respective markets, patient and staff needs, and availability of necessary supplies when assessing whether to move forward with non-urgent and elective dental care.

As we open our doors for non-urgent and non-emergency care, we are continuing to abide by the evolving regulations issued by the state of Pennsylvania to protect the citizens of the Commonwealth. Rest assured that we are also abiding by infection control protocols as outlined by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA). Your health is in good hands, regardless of the needs and goals that may lead you to our office.

After the dental office closure was announced, I had asserted that by the middle of May, much of this would be behind us – that we could then continue to provide what we have always provided: excellent, health-centric dental care. We are right on schedule, and we are here for you. We look forward to hearing from you and reconnecting with you and your family.

Be well and we will see you soon!
Stephen M. Lawrence, DMD and Team


Kingston, PA patients trust their smiles to an experienced cosmetic dentist

Our culture has changed a lot since the first mobile phone in 1973. We have become “selfie conscious.” Plus, we are working longer and dating later into life. Smile confidence has never been more important. As a cosmetic dentist, Dr. Stephen Lawrence brings science and artistry together to give patients in the Kingston, PA area the advantage of attractive smiles.

Credentials, experience, and creativity

The technical skills of cosmetic dentistry can, of course, be taught. Dr. Lawrence trained at one of the most esteemed post-graduation institutions in the country – The Pankey Institute for Advanced Dental Education. The artistry of color, proportion, balance, and detail, however, flows from instinct and experience. For more than 30 years, Dr. Lawrence has been honing his cosmetic dentistry techniques.

The Kingston, PA dentist who takes a tailored approach

Even if you have an identical twin, your face is utterly unique. Because it develops along with your life experiences, a cookie-cutter approach to cosmetic dentistry can result in an artificial look. Dr. Lawrence designs customized smile makeovers that enhance the delightful natural characteristics of your smile, rather than hiding them.

You look like you – only better – with one or a combination of treatments such as:

  • Teeth whitening – Be ready for a first date, job interview, or family photo with fast in-office whitening. Or brighten your smile gradually and privately, with a safe, effective at-home whitening kit.
  • Cosmetic bonding – This material is used to hide minor smile imperfections and close spaces between teeth. Often numbing is not required, and treatment is completed in one visit.
  • Dental veneers – Thin layers of porcelain are cemented to the front surfaces of “smile teeth.” Veneers improve the appearance of alignment, spacing, shape, size, color, and enamel texture, bringing appealing uniformity to the smile.
  • Clear braces – Dr. Lawrence is a certified Invisalign provider. This orthodontic system uses transparent plastic aligners (rather than brackets, bands, and wires) to straighten teeth, so you look good during and after treatment.
  • Tooth replacement – No smile flaw is more noticeable than a gap. The doctor offers several options – economical partial dentures, time-tested dental bridges, and long-lasing dental implants.

It is not conceited to consider cosmetic dentistry. It is an investment in your future! Call (570) 852-2650 to book a consultation with the Kingston, PA cosmetic dentist who takes time to understand your goals – Dr. Stephen Lawrence in Kingston, PA

Success Stories

Always a great experience at Dr Lawrence's office.

Always a great experience at Dr Lawrence’s office. They are now like close friends to me. I originally came to Dr Lawrence with some serious dental issues and he not only provided solutions that others either could not or would not …. but …. far exceeded my expectations. I now have people approaching me to compliment my smile and tell me my teeth are spectacular. Crazy! But, more importantly …… I no longer laugh with my hand over my mouth. And for me …… that is everything!
