About Dr. Ross Wezmar

Pediatric Dentist

I received my specialty training in Pediatric dentistry at Allegheny General Hospital in Pittsburgh, PA. This training followed a year of oral surgery and general practice internship at New York Medical College. Previous to these positions, I had graduated with Honor from the Columbia University School of Dental Medicine in New York City.

I have been practicing in Northeastern PA since finishing the program in Pittsburgh. Our practice has been in the forefront of providing special care to every patient we see. This includes infants, toddlers, school-age children, teenagers and special needs individuals. We spend much of our time treating patients who have difficulty obtaining care anywhere else. We serve patients from over 20 counties in northeastern and north central Pennsylvania.
