Our Dental Blog

45 Years and Counting...

This April, we are excited to celebrate with our friends, family, and community. In 1979, Mid-America Dental and Hearing Center opened its doors, and for over four decades, we have been a cornerstone of quality healthcare, offering unparalleled services at reasonable prices. Mid-America Dental and Hearing was founded by Drs. Harold E. George and Frederick C. Lauer as the Mid-America Denture Clinic. Our facility has upheld a tradition of excellence and Ozark hospitality for over four decades. Located in the heart of the Ozarks, Mt. Vernon, Missouri, Mid-America Dental and Hearing Center has been at the forefront of dental innovation. We take pride in being pioneers of custom, same-day dentures, revolutionizing the industry and setting new standards of efficiency and quality.

We are immensely grateful to all of our patients who have placed their trust in us over the past 45 years to help them achieve beautiful and confident smiles. Your support and loyalty have been the driving force behind our success, and we cannot thank you enough. As we reflect on our past 45 years serving the Ozarks, we also look to the future with excitement and anticipation. We are thrilled to continue serving the Southwest Missouri community by treating future generations of families to come.

We are committed to providing the highest quality dental care with the latest technology and techniques to ensure our patients always receive the best possible treatment. We are passionate about helping our patients achieve their dental goals, whether it's a simple cleaning or a complex procedure. Thank you again for your trust and support. We can't wait to see what the future holds and look forward to many more years of creating healthy and confident smiles!
