maxresdefault-2Part of my job is to help women and men look as youthful and attractive as they can. I evaluate their body contouring issues, aging issues, and overall appearance from a cosmetic point of view to help them decide what procedures would help them achieve their goals. Also important when it comes to conveying an appearance of youth and health is the smile. A beautiful smile radiates happiness and self confidence! But teeth are also affected by age and stress like any other part of the body.

At fifty years old, I made a conscious decision to address the issue of the appearance and health of my teeth and smile during the next half of my life. After thorough investigation and great thought, I chose Dr. Leonard Medura, Jr. to crown every tooth in my mouth! Of course having a beautiful smile was paramount, but making sure that I kept my teeth into my older age was of equal importance.


The experience I had at Watkins and Medura was extremely positive and my results were terrific! Dr. Medura, Jr. took considerable time explaining the procedures and making sure that I would be happy with the final results. He took care to minimize any pain and discomfort. And the entire staff was always courteous, professional and involved in my excitement throughout my journey.

Now, my entire family patronizes Watkins and Medura (we’ve experienced the skill and talents of all of the doctors) there. Further, as the Administrator of a Plastic Surgery Center and owner of a salon and day spa , I recommend them to all of our patients and customers for their dental and cosmetic needs!

Everyday I smile or look in the mirror, I am grateful to the professionals of Watkins and Medura for my spectacular teeth and smile!!!!

I have been coming to Dr. Watkins since the early 90’s. Dr. William Watkins is a very knowledgeable dentist and listens to my concerns with understanding and kindness. When my husband and I moved to the State College are, I decided to continue coming to him even though it was nearly a 2 1/2 hour drive. I trust Dr. Watkins with my teeth and my overall dental health.

For 25 years, Dr Leonard Medura has been our family’s dentist and we have never had a complaint – 5 star service.

Dr. John H. Presper, M.D. Lehman, Pa.


When I came to Dr. Medura about 15 years ago I was scared to death. My teeth were full of fillings and starting to break because I was afraid to have them taken care of. Since I have been coming here, I have had several crowns and root canals and have always felt at ease. Everyone form the receptionist to the hygienist to the doctors are very kind and caring. I would and do refer anyone who asks to their office.

Dr. William Watkins,

I want to thank you very much for the dental services you provided my mother, Mildred E. Cook. The family is very happy with your work and appreciative of your consideration for her financial position.

She can finally use her plate without a half tube of dental adhesive to hold it in place. The only problem we encountered was my mom took the last ear of sweet corn the other night at dinner from me. If her teeth did not fit so well, she would not have taken it. It was really good sweet corn.

Also, she no longer walks around with dental cream residue on her lips. Giving her a good bye kiss is no longer traumatic for me.

At my mom’s medical doctor appointment last week, I shared with him how we came to find your office through the PDA website and how pleased we were with your services.

My thanks to you and your staff, especially Donna, for the professional courtesies extended to us. We look forward to a continued relationship.

Dr. Bill Watkins has been my dentist for more than 35 years. He and his staff have always been courteous and effective as they’ve worked on my teeth. He’s been a blessing in my life.

Lynn R., Dallas, Pa.

Dear Dr. Medura,

I just wanted to send along a sincere note of thanks and appreciation to you and your staff for the wonderful experience I had with your Invisalign System.

It was my wife, of course, that decided early on that I should investigate Invisalign to see if the product could help straighten my teeth. I must admit that, at the time, it seemed somewhat doubtful to me. Needless to say, the final results were well above my expectations and my wife is thrilled with the outcome.

While the Invisalign System is in my opinion, a very worthwhile and “unobtrusive” way to enhance your smile, I must commend you and your staff for your patience, support and attention to detail in insuring that the product works to its fullest potential. I would especially like to thank Holly for her wonderful demeanor and encouragement during the process. She was always willing to answer any questions I had and ready to be of assistance whenever I visited the office. She helped make the experience both enjoyable and entertaining.

While I am not any wiser as a result of my new smile, I am certainly more confident when around people. That’s worth much more than the price of admission.

Thanks again and good luck with all of your future Invisalign patients. If their experiences are half what min were, then I am sure they will be very happy with their final results.

I’ve been coming to Dr. Medura Sr. ever since I married my husband 30 years ago. (He was my husband’s dentist before that.) Prior to that, I had a wonderful dentist, but the care I have received here even surpasses that. On occasion, I have gone to all three of the other doctors and any one of them are also excellent. Their hours are convenient to my full-time job and they’ve never hesitated to fit me in whenever I have had a problem. The care of my teeth over the years has been the best!

Linda Jones

Drs. Watkins and Medura are true professionals who care deeply about not just the dental needs of their patients, but all their patients needs. Thank you Dr. Watkins and Dr. Medura for caring about me and my family. We appreciate you greatly!

Suzanne Powell

Being an individual who is petrified of visiting a dentist, I found Dr. Watkins office 30 years ago. He made every visit comfortable. As long as this practice exists, I will do everything possible to continue to use their services.

I now live in North Carolina (for a year and a half) but will continue my check-ups and cleanings here.

If you have any fears,…this is the place for you. Also, Dr. Medura did my braces and I have absolutely beautiful teeth.

GD Keen

We have chosen Drs. Watkins and Medura for all of our family’s dental needs. Their professional staff, prompt service and exceptional results are second to none. We highly recommend their practice to all of our family and friends.

Eric & Ann McCabe

Drs. Medura Jr. and Sr. and the staff at Watkins and Medura are phenominal! Having a dental team as part of my healthy lifestyle plan is imperative to my success in my speaking career. Thank you.

Laura Novakowski RN, MBA Positive Power Strategies, Inc.

I have been seen by Dr. Medura for as long as I can remember, and now, 37 years old, I still come and bring my daughter. She has been a patient for 9 years. Our family feels like a part of Dr. Medura’s family.

Holly Kozlowski, Shavertown, PA.

We choose Dr. Medura and Watkins as our family dentist because of the trust their practice has restored in the dental profession for my husband and myself.Dr.Medura and his support staff intervened in a very difficult situation my husband and I experienced under the care of another dental practice. Dr. Medura brought us into his practice, provided emotional support, worked with our dental insurance to craft a plan of repair for our teeth with the least out-of-pocket expenses for us. He consulted the best specialist, again going to bat for us with the insurance company to help cover those expenses also. Dr. Medura and staff answered the numerous phone calls and questions we had completely and promptly. For myself it has taken almost a year of dental care, for my husband less, but we are most of all relieved that all of our teeth were saved and we couldn’t be happier with the results. Dr. Medura’s expertise in dental care, navigation of the dental insurance road, instilling trust, and taking the extra steps to tailor care towards our need has provided us with stellar dental care. We couldn’t ask for more.

Debra and James Siglin, Noxen, Pa.

There was a time when I was concerned about the far-away day when Dr. William Watkins would retire. You see, outside of my family, our relationship is the longest one I’ve ever had. I’m guessing that I have been a patient for at least 35 years now. Oh, and what we haven’t gone through together where my mouth is concerned!

I recently said that I would be a dental school’s dream, since there is hardly a dental issue that I haven’t faced. And through them all, including a severe accident that created a multitude of dental needs, Dr. Bill ha been there. Even after dental surgeries that he didn’t perform, Dr. Bill was the one calling me at home to see how I was doing!

Imagine my relief, when a few years ago, I had the opportunity to see his son, Dr. Scott Watkins, for the first time. Initially I was a bit apprehensive, since Dr. Bill was the only dentist I had ever known. Those fears immediately vanquished, though, with Dr. Scott’s entrance. He, too, is friendly, confident, gentle and compassionate, not to mention highly skilled!

Yes, I am one of the few truly fortunate ones because my entire life, while I had great reason to fear the dentist, I never did. And now, whenever Dr. Bill decides to relax a bit and not work so hard, I will have the comfort nd reassurance of making a complete transition to Dr. Scott. Fear the dentist? No way! My dentists ROCK!!!

Wendy Saxe, Sweet Valley,Pa.

I chose Dr.s Watkins and Medura as my family’s dentists because of their flexible hours. The staff is friendly and courteous and they are very professional. I feel very comfortable that our smiles are in good hands. The smile that I have thanks to the Invisalign alternative of braces is terrific. I love it. Thank you, Drs. Watkins and Medura.

Marjorie Heiser, Sweet Valley, Pa

They are the best! Everyone is very friendly and makes you feel comfortable. I don’t like needles but they take good care of me and make sure I have very minimal discomfort.

Sylvia Hauck, Glen Lyon, Pa.

Friendly staff…Short waiting time…Convenient hours…Very pleasant environment.

Seana M., Harveys Lake, Pa.

We chose Watkins & Medura after moving back to the area. We were impressed with the services they provided and decided to make the hour drive to see how they would work for our family’s dental needs. I never expected to receive such a warm welcome. The staff and Drs. Watkins and Drs. Medura made us feel like part of the family. The services we have received have far surpassed our expectations. They work well with our insurance and have truly made all dental procedures very affordable. Thank you for being our family dentist!

Melissa Wertman, Muncy, Pa.

“I would like to thank Dr. Medura, Holly, Tracey and Mary for all they have done during my visits. I am very pleased with my new teeth! You are all great. Thanks so much. I actually look forward to my next appointment.Yvonne M.

As a caseworker, I have been bringing the children I work with to this office for many years. Not only do they receive excellent care in regards to dental treatment, they are treated with kindness, respect and patience. The dentists are always so cooperative in completeing documentation that we need for our files. It’s a pleasure to come to this facility. The staff makes you feel welcome and comfortable.

J. Kresge, The Poconos

My family and I have had Dr. Medura, Jr. as our dentist for over 10 years. We appreciate the friendly atmosphere and prompt service. We also like that they call to notify you when your appointment was made. They offer other services such as whitening for a resonable price too.

Shannon Kreidler


I chose Dr. Medura because when my mom had taken me here, I loved how professional he was. Dr. Medura is a very friendly young man who will definitely take care of you. He is very trustworthy and and always has a smile on his face. No let down here – I can promise you that!

Juliana Brennan


I am one of those people that have MAJOR dental anxiety. I did not go to any dentists for years after a botched job that I had done in 2003 while living in another state. Dr. Scott Watkins and his staff have to be the most gentle, caring and professional people of ANY medical facility I have been to. Dr. Scott Watkins went above and beyond to make sure I was comfortable at ALL TIMES. His dental technicians are caring and gentle as well. I hardly waited to get in when I had an emergency. They got me in ASAP. If you have a fear of dentists, please try this office and you will not be disappointed. I had the worst fear you could imagine but now I don’t even worry. He is one of the few doctors or dentists I have ever met that did not make you feel rushed or just a chart number, Thank you Dr. Watkins and staff for making me 110% fearless when visiting the dentist AND FOR BEING ABLE TO FINALLY SMILE AGAIN! MERRY CHRISTMAS!
