What Sets Us Apart

Coming to Southern Maine Dental, is coming to visit friends. We have been providing our community with professional, gentle, and compassionate dental care for more than 30 years, and have become the flagship practice in Biddeford. As a family-oriented dental practice, our emphasis is always on your needs and ensuring that you receive the dental care specific to your situation and goals, in a timely manner, delivered with smiles.

Dr. Maria Steed and our dental team are highly-trained professionals who regularly pursue continuing education in order to ensure we are able to offer our patients the most proven, effective care available. At the same time, we are patient-centered and relish the relationships and friendships that we develop with our patients and their families. Each appointment with an established patient is a chance to catch up on their lives and each meeting with a new patient is an opportunity to learn something new. We thrive on these interactions.

Key to our dental approach is the partnership we will form with you. It is essential that you not only understand your oral health needs, but how to care for your mouth between checkups and treatments to keep your teeth, gums, and mouth healthy. Toward that end, we offer preventive treatments and are always available to provide coaching and education that will enable you to meet your end of the partnership.

As a full-service dental practice, we offer a wide range of dental services, from pediatric to geriatric, from preventive to cosmetic, from basic to complex. We have great working relationships with our local dental specialists: we frequently team up with some of the finest orthodontists, oral surgeons, endodontists, periodontists, and pediatric dentists to solve problems and create lovely smiles.

Because our office is equipped with modern, state-of-the-art technology, we are able to offer special services, including local anesthesia reversal following a procedure and single tooth anesthesia. We are well-versed in working with patients who have dental anxiety. Our staff members are compassionate and know how to calm fears, provide needed reassurance, and help a patient to understand that a dental visit is not something to dread.

Located in Biddeford, ME, we see and treat patients from all over southern Maine. Our practice hours at Southern Maine Dental have been designed to work with your schedule, including early morning and evening appointments. Please call for more information and to schedule an appointment for yourself or for your child. Dr. Steed and our entire dental care team look forward to creating excellent oral health and a stunning smile for you!
