Meet Dr. Arlene Kubit

It is presently Dr. Arlene Kubit's privilege to enjoy private practice as a prosthodontist (a dentist specialist treating and handling dental and facial problems involving restoring missing tooth and jaws structures) in Erie, PA. Patients are generally referred locally or from North Western PA, Eastern Ohio, Southwestern New York and West Virginia.

Treatments may range from routine dentures, crowns and bridges on healthy teeth, those compromised by periodontal disease or for dental implants, to Phase I and II TMD treatments and special requirements such as palatal obturators, overlay partial dentures, occlusal splints, and surgical stents for maxillofacial surgeries and dental implants. The majority of these appliances are prescribed, designed and fabricated in whole or in part by herself and staff in an in-house laboratory. We cater to "Zebras." (Zebras are medical conditions which are out of the ordinary. All zebras are horses but not all horses are zebras.)
