Dear Friends, Families, and Valued Patients,
As a member of your health care team, I’d like to take this time to let you know that your health is our number one priority. Even though we’re postponing elective procedures to help stop the spread of COVID-19, we’re still here for you if you’re experiencing a dental emergency.
If you’re experiencing an urgent dental issue, I can be reached at (724) 493-8991.
Should you need to visit us for emergency care, you can rest assured that we’re taking extra precautions at our office to protect your health and safety.
We’re committed to providing a safe environment at our office. Our team has always practiced strict universal sterilization precautions. But now, we’ve updated our protocol to incorporate new guidelines and recommendations from the CDC, ADA, and Pennsylvania Department of Health regarding COVID-19. We’re also using an advanced air cleaning system that’s designed to remove all viruses from the air and office environment.
We’ll continue to schedule only emergency care appointments until our status is changed by Governor Wolfe and we can once again see you for all your dental care needs.
We appreciate your confidence in us and we can’t wait to see you back in our office just as soon as it’s safe to do so.

General & Family
Regular teeth cleanings are essential to your ongoing health. We believe it’s never too early to start developing excellent oral hygiene habits. That’s why we offer thorough dental checkups for patients of all ages. With our help, everyone in your family can enjoy a healthy, beautiful smile for many years to come.
If you’re missing any amount of teeth, we can restore your smile with durable, natural-looking dental implants. After they’ve integrated with your jaw, implants give you the ability to eat all your favorite foods and smile with confidence. They’re also easy to clean, never need to be removed, and can last a lifetime with proper care.
Don’t settle for anything less than flawless when it comes to your smile. We can eliminate cracks, chips, stains, discoloration, and any other imperfections with a range of cosmetic treatments. Whether you need teeth whitening, porcelain veneers, or a full smile makeover, Dr. Kovacevic will help you uncover your dream smile.
Dr. Kovacevic and his staff are exceptional. I had to have my teeth realigned and caps put on because I had damaged my teeth through years of grinding in my sleep. The realignment process didn't require braces instead using invisible aligners. The caps where whiter than my teeth had been and greatly improved my smile. The work to install the caps was complex and required a level of skill and expertise that can't be found anywhere else. Thank you Dr. Kovacevic and your team for giving me my smile back.
The best personal care business I have ever been too. When I walked in the front desk acknowledged me immediately to get me ready for your appointment. There was coffee, fresh fruit, and candies on a counter. There is a beautiful flourishing plant on the counter that was unique and made me ponder just how attentive staff was. There was many magazines to read on the wall. The doctor shook everyones hand that was in my family and made sure he knew our names. When we left he made sure we were satisfied before he said goodbye. The staff who cleaned my teeth were the most thorough focused employees. I felt as if they treated my teeth like art. Along with the treatment, price was more than fair. I felt doctor and staff pointed me in the right direction for making wise necessary and important decisions for me. I never left an office so confident about fulfilling my appointment, even though it was a bit of a drive. I recommend to everyone around. I am so happy.
Frequently Asked Questions
How can I get my kids to brush their teeth?
Children may need a little guidance when flossing until their motor skills are developed enough to do it on their own. If you’re still having trouble motivating them to participate in oral hygiene routines, let Dr. Kovacevic know at your appointment, and he can offer some helpful advice.
What is fluoride and why is it important to dental health?
Since fluoride aids in protecting against cavities, we recommend using dental products that contain fluoride as part of your oral care. We also offer professional fluoride treatments that are highly concentrated and only take a few minutes to apply.
Why is it important to go to the dentist for regular checkups and cleanings?
Tooth decay typically doesn’t cause any pain until it becomes a cavity and reaches the nerve root. We can usually detect a cavity three to four years before you become symptomatic. This can mean the difference between having to get a filling or root canal therapy. With regular checkups and cleanings, we can keep your smile looking and feeling its best.
Why are x-rays important at the dentist?
- Decay that exists between teeth or below restorations
- Infections in the bone or gums
- Abscesses or cysts
- Developmental abnormalities
- Some types of tumors
When we examine your oral health on a regular basis, we’re able to detect any issues before they become problematic. Scheduling regular checkups and professional cleanings at our Greensburg office will help ensure your mouth is in the best of health.
