DR THOMAS LIVINGSTONE

3 RAILROAD STREET, P.O. Box 1078, North Canaan, CT 06018
860-824-0751
Open Today 10:00 AM - 5:00 PM

We are a holistic, mercury-free (for over 30 years) family oriented dental office located in the foothills of the beautiful Berkshire Mountains in Northwest Connecticut. We treat anyone from ages one to one hundred (and ,yes, we do have a 100 year old and many 90+ year olds in the practice!).

Request an Appointment

OK, so going to the dentist is not supposed to be "pleasant" but at Livingstons I found a congenial environment with skilled and friendly service. I can always tell when a cleaning is properly done by the care taken to remove tarter under the gun line. As a summer resident at Twin Lakes CT, I have a regular dentist back home who would be pleased at the treatment i received in Canaan. August 03 Ted S.,

Great place

Dr Livingstone and Tonya do a great job. Appointments always on time and the work is excellent and pain free. Next morning I have no signs that any work was done. Highly recommend this practice.

Dental Excellence

I have been a patient of Dr. Livingstone for more than 20 years, and I've never had a better dentist. I trust him implicitly and value his knowledge, skill, candor and kindness.

Great Cleaning, Terrific folks

Maggie is a terrific hygienist who is caring, very knowledgeable, friendly and gentle. I have not had much done with Dr. Livingston (my teeth are in pretty good shape) but he prides himself on being gentle. I would highly recommend this dentist office

Superb

My visit at Dr. Livingstone's office yesterday was nothing but the best. Maggie, the dental hygienist (sp?), is great and quite adept at her profession and pleasant to talk with (when she doesn't have all those gadgets in your mouth). And, of course, Todd is one of the best if not the best dentist in this area. I could not recommend this team more highly. Thanks, gang!

Awesomeeeeee

When I moved to the area I was happy to find a holistic dentist so close to home. It's just a bonus that everyone there is so nice. Maggie the hygienist is super friendly and I legitimately enjoy going to see her! I'm one of those weirdos who likes going to the dentist but I think this would be a great dental practice for anyone nervous about going to the dentist as well.
