My father, Dr. Earl Buehner, Jr., has been caring for the Minersville community for over 35 years. As a child, I remember patients coming into our home as I played out front and, on occasion, watching him work with someone inside the office. He has always been highly dedicated to the health of his patients, and he genuinely cares about each and every person that comes into his practice.
 
It was watching my father’s commitment to his patients that made me want to become a dentist. I graduated from Minersville High School in 1996 and went on to study at the the local Penn State Schuylkill Campus. I earned my doctorate degree from Temple University School of Dentistry in 2005, and I have been practicing ever since.
 
Starting in 2016, Dr. Earl Buehner, Jr. will be transitioning into more of a retirement role within the practice. You will still be able to see his smiling face around the office from time to time, but he will mostly work in a supporting role with the current staff and the new faces you’ll see at the office.
 
I am honored that I have this opportunity to practice dentistry alongside my father and provide the same quality of care he has over the past several decades. I hope to carry on this legacy, and I also intend to foster community growth, increase dental education, and raise the level of dentistry in Schuykill County.
