Maine dental practice closing 2 locations due to staffing shortages

Portland, Maine-based Community Dental will close two of its six Maine locations due to workforce shortages, CBS affiliate WGME reported.

The practice will close its Rumford and Monson locations Nov. 23.

Community Dental has attempted to recruit staff, but has been unsuccessful in hiring qualified hygienists and dentists in the two rural locations, WGME reported. Its Rumford clinic has not had a dentist since November and its Monson clinic hasn't been able to fill its hygienist opening.

Community Dental will continue to provide care at its Portland, Biddeford, Lewiston and Farmington locations.
