About MMS Endodontic Specialists

In 2004, Dr. Minchau took over Morgantown Endodontics from Dr. Skidmore, who started the practice in 1992. Drs. McBride and Stiles joined Dr. Minchau in 2007 and 2010, forming MMS Endodontic Specialists. Their growth has led them to open additional offices in Uniontown, PA and Cumberland, MD. They have since expanded their services to include periodontics, and recently opened MMS Dental Implants and Periodontics in Morgantown, WV. They are excited about the positive response from the community.

At MMS, our patients are our top priority. In general, apprehension and dental procedures go hand-in-hand. However, it is our goal to ensure that your visit is as comfortable and favorable as possible. Our team members play a huge role in your experience as well, and so it is paramount that we provide a relaxing environment, excellent communication, and expert treatment. 

We feel very blessed to have the opportunity to provide dental services to our local communities. Please don’t hesitate to contact us if you have any questions or need more information. We are here to serve you!
