Located in a beautifully renovated historic mill, the Rumford Center opened in February 2008, bringing much needed affordable and accessible oral health care to the people of Oxford County. Patients and staff enjoy state-of-the-art facilities, including six operatories, digital radiography, and electronic patient records.

Two fully licensed dentists staff the center with support staff including dental hygienists, dental assistants, and patient service representatives. The compassionate staff provides quality oral health care services.

A full range of oral health care is provided at the Center, including restorations (tooth fillings), crowns, full and partial dentures, oral surgery, periodontics, endodontics, pedodontics and preventive care (teeth cleanings). Our patient population is diverse and includes all age groups, as well as special needs patients and people suffering from dental anxiety. Patients with dental emergencies can usually be treated within 24 hours.

We accept most private insurance plans and MaineCare, and a sliding fee scale is available for patients who meet the financial eligibility requirements. Care Credit is also provided to eligible patients as a payment option and we accept all major credit cards for payment.

Community Dental Rumford works closely with our community partners, Rumford Hospital, Tri-County Mental Health, and the River Valley Healthy Communities Coalition to provide patient-centered care and link people to needed health services on a timely basis. Community Dental partners with community school oral health programs and Headstart to provide a dental home for students who need services.

Community Dental—Gentle, Safe, and Affordable Dental Care

Our approach is to develop a comprehensive treatment plan that includes preventative, restorative, and maintenance services by appointment. We accept all and participate in many dental insurance plans, plus MaineCare, Aspire and patient payment in the form of cash, check or credit card for walk-in emergencies of those experiencing dental pain. We are taking new patients and treat all ages, so your whole family can become established patients with us.
