LAKE PLACID — After 30 years of providing dental services to residents in the area, Adirondack Health has announced plans to close its Lake Placid dental care center this spring amid staffing issues and financial “stressors.”

With the sparse availability of dental practices and jobs in the village, the future of the facility’s five employees and service for around 2,000 active patients they serve remains uncertain.
