Carpathian Dental Associates is proud give back to the community that has supported us for the past 20 years.

So much of what we do relies on our community and belief in providing the most premium dental care possible to those who need it most. Our efforts to make the world a better place one smile at a time are active locally in Johnson City and stretching as far as the Himalayas.

Dr. Thomas Bucker’s passion for dental mission trips has helped hundreds of smiles around the world. In 2008, Dr. Bucker and his son provided dental care to patients in India as part of the Himalayan Health Exchange. The Himalayan Health Exchange combines service, education, and adventure to help provide quality dental care to undeserved populations in remote areas of the Indo-Tibetan borderlands. Dr. Bucker helped perform primary care services to patients in need as well as promote a health awareness campaign to teach the population of proper oral hygiene and dental health. In May 2011, Dr. Bucker also traveled to Port-au-Prince, Haiti and treated children at several orphanages. He also treated residents of the tent cities in Cite-Soleil who were devastated after the earthquake in 2010.

Carpathian Dental Associates is also the proud official dentist of the Binghamton Senators – a professional ice hockey team in the American Hockey League. Nicknamed the “B-Sens”, they play in Binghamton, New York, at the Floyd L. Maines Veterans Memorial Arena. In addition to being avid fans, we provide emergency care to the players. We make sure that they have the best possible mouth protection while on the ice by providing custom mouth guards. And we get to see our loyal patients as fans at the games. CDA is thrilled to give back across the globe, but also help on a local level. Go Senators!

Carpathian Dental Associates also participates in an Oral Cancer Awareness walk where we help to ‘Bite Back against Oral Cancer” by providing Oral Cancer Screenings to the local population. We want our neighbors to stay happy and healthy, and providing oral cancer screenings to our community helps to ensure a lifetime of well cared-for smiles.
