Laurel Dental - Towanda Celebrates Grand Opening with Ribbon Cutting

By Kristy Warren


After months of dedicated, hard work, Laurel Health has successfully opened its new dental clinic: Laurel Dental – Towanda. On Tuesday, September 13, the team held a celebratory ribbon cutting ceremony to commemorate the grand opening with Laurel executives, clinic staff, and community leaders.


The clinic provides complete family dentistry services at 346 York Avenue in Towanda, PA and is now seeing patients of all ages.


Dr. Clark Sparrow, who retired in 2020, wanted to assure ongoing access to dental services in Towanda, PA and turned to the Laurel Health Centers to continue his legacy of great dental care. Laurel Health acquired his former practice earlier this year and has been hard at work updating the space and preparing a new dental team. The newly renovated office has officially re-opened its doors as Laurel Dental – Towanda.

The office is accepting new patients and accepts a wide array of dental insurance plans. The clinic is still credentialing with some dental carriers, and if the clinic isn’t yet enrolled with your specific dental carrier but will be soon, the front office will place you on a waiting list for an appointment once enrolled.
