Blackstone Family Dentistry has been serving the Blackstone community for over 40 years.  The practice was originally founded by Dr. Mark Reitz in 1978.  When Dr. Reitz retired in 2018, the practice was purchased by Dr. Staples, who had been serving as the Director of Dental Services for a community health center in Virginia.  Dr. Staples retained all of the staff members in the practice and began a modernization process to provide even better service to new and existing patients.  That process includes electronic patient records, online bill payment options, easy appointment scheduling, and a new referral program.  Contact us today to experience the best dental care available in Blackstone!
