About Dr. John C. Black, III ("Dr. John")

Dr. John C. Black III Willow Street Lancaster PA Dentist
"Dr. John"
Dr. John C. Black, III

Growing up the son of a small town family dentist, Dr. John began observing dentistry at a very young age. His father, Dr. John C. Black, Jr. (or “Dr. Black”), began providing comprehensive dental care to the folks in Willow Street, Pennsylvania and the surrounding area in Lancaster County in 1961. At that time, the dental office was an addition to the Black family home located on Willow Street Pike North. In 1981, the office was moved to our present location. Dr. Black retired from dentistry in December, 2005. If you are one of the lucky ones, you’ll get to see and visit with him as he tends to the beautiful gardens outside the office.

Dr. John attended Lampeter-Strasburg High School and enjoyed playing football for the Pioneers. After high school, Dr. John attended Grove City College where he earned his BS degree in Biology. Dr. John earned his Doctorate of Dental Surgery from Georgetown University and joined the team at Black & Black Dental in 1989. Dr. John is a long-time member of the American Dental Association, the Academy of General Dentistry, the Pennsylvania Dental Association and the Seattle Study Club.

Dr. John is married to Toni who works with Dr. John at the office. They have two energetic sons Ryan and Connor as well as a labra-doodle dog named Hudson. When Dr. John is not at the office, he enjoys spending time with his family, coaching his son’s lacrosse team, playing golf, working in the yard, traveling, cars, and listening to music.

Welcoming New Patients in Lancaster PA


For many years I have been a patient of Black & Black Dental, and have always been satisfied with my treatment. The office staff are pleasant and friendly, the equipment up to date, and Dr. John is always ready with a detailed explanation if there is any question about procedures.

Recently, he, along with his chairside assistant, took time from his vacation to open the office and see me after I had fallen and shattered two front tooth crowns. His immediate treatment saved the teeth. I couldn't have been more appreciative. He is a skilled, dedicated dentist who not only cares for my teeth, but cares about me as his patient."
