Healthy Smiles for Your Family
Excellence in Family, Cosmetic, and Implant Dentistry
From routine cleanings to cosmetic dentistry, sleep apnea treatment, and more, we’re here to offer excellent services to you and your loved ones.
Gum disease contributes to lost teeth and major health issues. We provide preventive care and treatment for a healthier smile and body.
With ClearCorrect™ clear aligners, you can get a straight smile quickly and comfortably, and no one will be able to see them!
Meet the Doctor
Athena Graves, DDS, is pleased to be able to offer beautiful smiles to her neighbors in Plattsburgh and the surrounding communities.
At Champlain Smiles, we want all of our patients to have access to the best dental care. We will gladly accept CareCredit financing as an option for our patients.
“I just want to say thank you for such a wonderful job with my dental care. I was very nervous and fearful due to bad experiences with other dentists. You and your staff made a very difficult process comfortable with minimal discomfort. I cannot recommend you and your staff enough, for anyone thinking of choosing a dental professional.”
“I moved into Plattsburgh, NY in 2007. I was in need of dental care from prior dental uncompleted work. Since my first visit to Champlain Smiles, Dr. Graves and staff made me very comfortable in the most modern and professional office. As a result, I continue my relationship to this day with confidence. I would like to thank you for the personalized attention I always get on my office visits.”
“For most of my life I was very self conscious of my smile and always nervous about going to the dentist. From the beginning, Dr. Graves and her staff made the dental experience enjoyable. The staff is always friendly and I recommend any of my friends to go to them for any of their dental needs. Thank you for my wonderful new smile!”
Giving Back to the Community
At Champlain Smiles, we’re proud about our various programs that help our community and those in need.
Dr. Graves has served as a clinical instructor at the Broome County Community College Hygiene School and has lectured master’s nursing students on geriatric dental care. She has been interviewed on television in connection with “Doctors with a Heart Day” (where free care is provided for those who cannot afford it) and featured on local newscasts promoting the Halloween Candy Buy-Back program, which pays kids for their extra Halloween candy and supports US troops overseas with care packages. In addition to supporting local youth sports with our regular water bottle giveaways, Dr. Graves and Champlain Smiles regularly participate in the health and welfare of the community through donations of both time and money to various groups.
