About LaClair Family Dental

There is quite a bit of history in our quaint little dental office here in Carthage, NY, in the North Country. This north country dental office has been in operation for nearly 60 years. Founded by Dr. John S. Trowbridge, here is where he practiced for 53 years of his career. At retirement, Dr. Trowbridge passed the torch to two North Country dentists, Dr. Scott and Robert LaClair, where they have practiced together until 2012, when Dr. Rob became sole practitioner of LaClair Family Dental.

Dr. Rob was born in Ogdensburg, NY and has lived in just about every small North Country town north of Syracuse. Primarily raised in Hermon, NY, he graduated with 32 students from Hermon-Dekalb Central School.


Continuing on to LeMoyne College, Syracuse, NY and University at Buffalo NY Dental School, Dr. Rob immediately came back to the area where he grew up to serve the community, working alongside Tammy Trowbridge, Dr. Trowbridge’s daughter-in-law, office manager. Devoted to a lifetime of community service, they have spent the last eight years of their dental careers meeting the needs of the Carthage area people and it will be their distinct pleasure to serve this community into retirement.

My tooth is terrific! I want you to know how much I appreciate your patience and persistence in figuring outwhat the problem was and fixing it so well. My thanks!
LaClair family dental was very friendly, professional, gentle, and you feel like family. The atmosphere and the workmanship is fantastic.
Dr. Rob LaClair and everyone at his office, I just wanted to let you all know how great I think you are. It’s really special when you can make a person want to come to the dentist! I will be sure to tell everyone about you!
Instead of going to three doctors to get work done, Dr. LaClair does everything. He is a very caring doctor, and is the best here in the Carthage area.
