Smiles 4 Keeps now welcomes Adult Patients in Allentown, Bartonsville & Scranton!

Our History

In 1973, a visionary dentist named Ross Wezmar, DDS, embarked on a remarkable journey that would forever change pediatric dentistry in NEPA. With a singular vision in mind, he laid the foundation for what would become Affiliated Pediatric Dentists of NEPA—a practice known for its exceptional care, compassionate staff, and unwavering dedication to patient advocacy.

The Early Years of Growth

As word spread about the exceptional dental care and welcoming atmosphere at Affiliated Pediatric Dentists, the practice experienced significant growth. In 1980, we proudly opened our Wilkes-Barre office, expanding our reach and serving even more families in the region. This expansion allowed us to provide our specialized dental services to a broader community, further cementing our reputation as a trusted provider of pediatric dentistry.

Expanding Horizons

In 2013, we continued our mission of making a positive impact on children’s oral health by opening our Bartonsville office. This strategic move allowed us to bring our exceptional care and expertise to a new community, ensuring that children in the area had access to the highest quality dental services in a comfortable and friendly environment.

A New Era: Smiles 4 Keeps

In 2016, a significant milestone marked an exciting chapter in our journey. Affiliated Pediatric Dentists embraced a fresh identity and rebranded itself as Smiles 4 Keeps. This name change not only reflected our unwavering commitment to creating happy, healthy smiles but also embodied our dedication to providing comprehensive and compassionate dental care to children of all ages.

Continued Growth and Impact

Our commitment to expanding access to top-notch dental care remained unwavering. In 2021, we proudly opened our Hazleton office, bringing our exceptional services to yet another community in need. This expansion allowed us to touch the lives of even more children, ensuring they receive the dental care they deserve in a nurturing and comfortable environment.

A Bright Future with Abra Health

In October 2021, Smiles 4 Keeps joined forces with Abra Health, a leading healthcare organization dedicated to enhancing the well-being of children. This partnership not only brought new opportunities for growth, collaboration, and innovation but also expanded the range of services we offer. With the acquisition by Abra Health, Smiles 4 Keeps introduced orthodontic services to our comprehensive dental care offerings. Now, in addition to our exceptional pediatric dental care, we proudly provide orthodontic services to address the unique orthodontic needs of children and adults, ensuring their smiles grow beautifully and healthily.

Continued Expansion: Allentown Location

Our commitment to expanding access to high-quality dental care continues with our latest venture. In June of 2023, Abra Health acquired Eugene McGuire, DDS, a pediatric dentistry practice in Allentown. This strategic acquisition further strengthens our presence and allows us to serve even more families in the region. In August 2023, the recently acquired Eugene McGuire, DDS, practice will move into a brand new state-of-the-art facility, offering a range of services to cater to the diverse dental needs of the community. This new location will not only provide exceptional pediatric dental care but also offer orthodontic services for both children and adults. In addition, we are thrilled to introduce a brand-new adult dentistry program, expanding our services to adults who seek comprehensive oral healthcare.

At Smiles 4 Keeps, we are excited about this next chapter in our journey. We will continue to provide outstanding dental care to children and adults, ensuring that smiles of all ages receive the attention they deserve.
