About Chemung Family Dental

Chemung Family Dental is committed to providing you care with the most current dental procedures and materials in a warm, friendly, relaxed and caring environment. We pride ourselves on the” Legendary Service” we give to our patients.

Dr. Dunn and his “dental team” dedicate themselves to continuing education so that they can employ the most progressive dental procedures as well as materials for our patients. We believe in having our patients involved and educated in their own treatment and encourage all questions so that they can receive the dental care they want.

Prevention is a guiding force in our office. It has been said that “an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure.” We see patients of all ages from pediatric to geriatric so that your entire family can be seen at one office.

We practice many disciplines of dentistry so that the great majority of your care can be done in our office, reducing the inconvenience of your treatment being split between multiple offices. However, we maintain an outstanding relationship with all the dental specialists in our community and will always refer you when that is the best option for your care.
