Welcome to our practice! Celebrating our 62nd year in State College!
- Dr. Donald Curtis began the practice in 1962 after military service and earning his degree at Penn State. His father had graduated from PSU in the 1920's, so we are certainly not new to the area! Dr. David Curtis Joined the practice in 1992, a little over 30 years ago; As Donald retired in 1999, Dr. Dave began treating all patients. Dr. David Curtis attended Penn State, and Lock Haven University, graduating in 1988; He then attended the University of Pittsburgh School of Dental Medicine, and graduated in 1992 before returning to his home town of State College.
The two doctors, father and son, worked together from 1992-1999, when Dr. Donald Curtis retired. At that point, Dr. Dave became the new owner, and has been treating all patients since that time.
Dr. Dave enjoys living in Centre County; He and his wife Lisa have made their home here, and have four grown daughters. Lisa works as an office manager at Penn State, in the Counseling Services office (CAPS), and they now live with two wonderful pets, Max the dog, and Abbie the cat.
They both enjoy hiking, biking, and travel. Dr. Dave has been a pilot since 2001, and enjoys both aviation and local history. He has visited all 50 states when younger, but now enjoys staying here in the community. He has enjoyed volunteer work over the years, with Boy Scouts, American Field service, and Remote Area Medical service, which offers donated dental services to Pennsylvanians. He is also excited about another volunteer endeavor coming before the end of the year!
Dr. Curtis loves to learn. He has been a past president of the Centre County Dental Society, has attended a large number of continuing education courses locally, as well as across the country and even in a few other countries. Variety broadens prospective.

We participate with United Concordia in network PPO plan, but do not participate with Delta Dental nor Medicare/Medicaid.
We are primarily a restorative dental office; We no longer employ a dental hygienist, so "cleaning" visits are much more difficult to come by. We can always complete an exam however, and discuss any treatment you may need.
