You can rest assured knowing that our treatments will include the most advanced, educational and compassionate dental care possible…because your family deserves the best.

Established in 1989, we’ve been providing kids oral health care services for over 25 years and are one of the largest pediatric dental practices in the country. Since our founding, we’ve expanded to multiple locations throughout the Buffalo region specializing in virtually every aspect of infant to adult oral health care, from simple check-ups to complex oral surgeries. We are the Western New York dental health care experts!

With highly trained staff and state-of-the-art facilities we now offer orthodontics, maxillofacial and craniofacial surgeries as well as emergency 24-hour treatments for victims of accidents. But that’s just part of the story. 

From our reception staff to our dentists, our hygienists to our oral surgeons, our goal is to provide a positive patient experience from well before you arrive at our office until well after you leave. And it’s not just about teeth for us. We believe in this community and strive daily to be active contributors to the health and wellness of the Buffalo region.

A Message from Dr. Paul Creighton, President

On behalf of our entire staff, thank you for choosing UPD Dental Associates as your family’s dental home. I’m honored that you’ve come to us and I want to assure you, none of us take your trust lightly. Over the last 25 years through University Pediatric Dentistry, we’ve become the largest pediatric dental provider in Western New York. While we now treat adults as well as kids, many of our original pediatric patients are bringing their own children to our practice and we believe there’s a simple reason; we treat every child as if they are our own.

I’m exceptionally proud of each member of our team. We choose to work with people who fit our family-first culture and we’re all committed to compassionate care using the latest techniques and state of the art technology. That commitment spans every specialty within our practice.

Whether your family visits us for a routine exam or a complex surgical procedure, we have an Uncompromising Promise to Deliver the highest quality care and experience everyday…because your family deserves the best.

Dr. Paul Creighton
President, UPD Dental Associates

Welcome to UPD Dental Associates and to our website. We’re glad you’re here!

It’s no secret that the healthcare system is complex and sometimes frustrating, but we’ve designed the kind of experience your family deserves. From scheduling an appointment and your interaction with our reception staff through treatment and working with your insurance coverage, we’ve got it covered.

Everyone who works with us understands that they are doing something important and that everything they do and don’t do affects your care. At UPD Dental Associates, we love to take the hassle out of your dental visit and replace it with a smile.
