Family Dental Care for the Community We Love
As a locally owned and operated dental practice, we know the importance of community. Since 1981, Northern Maine Dental has provided families from Caribou, ME, and across Aroostook County with comprehensive, gentle dental services. From our beginning, it has been our goal to be different than a standard dental office — we truly treat each patient like a family member.
COVID Safety Precautions
Due to the nature of our work, mask removal and aerosol generation are inevitable, so we have gone above and beyond to keep everyone safe and protected. Aside from a medical-grade HVAC system in our new facility, mask-wearing, social distancing, extensive patient screening, and staggering appointment times, we have the following equipment in use:
We have one of these mobile air purification units in each treatment room, totaling 9 units for our 5000 sq. ft. space. This particular system treats 250 cubic feet per minute on its highest setting. Our treatment rooms are approximately 120 sq. ft., so the air in each treatment room is turned over 30x every hour.
These are used for every procedure in our doctor’s rooms. The appeal of this system is it is designed to reduce droplet and aerosol spray and is designed with a 3 layered HEPA filtration system that stops viruses and bacteria with 99.995% efficiency. Most of the technology we use in our practice is air-driven to help reduce the generation of particles in the air from mouths and dental procedures.
Dryshield Continuous Suction Units
This is another way to reduce aerosol generation during procedures. This system helps to keep our work environment clean, dry, and visible and is multi-functional. This system works as a bite block, tongue shield, oral pathway protector, and high-suction evacuator.

My very first visit to my new dental family! Professional and personable staff made me feel at ease and comfortable. The modern waiting room and operatory were beautifully appointed. My hygienist, Jan made sure to explain her procedures during my exam and cleaning and answered any questions I had. Meeting Dr Thompson was a pleasure! She created a comprehensive treatment plan personalized to my specific needs and comfort level. Checking in and out was a pleasurable experience due to the efficiency of the office staff. Thank you Sandi! I love my new dental home!”
“I love my dental family! I have been going to them for years and have always had nothing but excellent care. Recently, I had a crown by Dr Kteil and he, as well as Erin, were very kind and informed me every step of the way what they were doing.”
“I enjoyed my experience at Northern Maine Dental. The price for services is reasonable and competitive. The staff is friendly and courteous. My hygienist, Jan, explained what she was doing and gave me options on my future care. The new office is designed beautifully.”
