Edward M. Dailey, D.D.S.
Dr. Dailey graduated from Baylor University in Waco, TX in May 1983 with a Bachelor of Science degree in Psychology. In 1984 he enrolled in the University of Texas Health Science Center in San Antonio, TX to begin his education in general dentistry. He graduated from UT with a Doctorate of Dental Surgery in 1988.
Dr. Dailey began his career in 1989 when he purchased his first practice located at 907 Pennsylvania Avenue, Elmira, NY. He remained there for 20 years establishing himself within the community and his field.
In 1994 Dr. Dailey became President of the Chemung County Dental Society, serving his term with dedication and commitment. He remains a member of both the Chemung County and Broome County Dental Societies, along with the American Dental Society and the New York State Sixth District Dental Society.
For many years, Dr. Dailey volunteered his time and expertise at the Southern Tier Health Ministries in Corning, NY to offer free dental care to uninsured or underinsured individuals in the community. One day each month, Dr. Dailey and his assistant, Marie, would drive to the ministry office to care for patients who would not have had the benefits of dentistry if it were not provided by this excellent organization. The ministry was concluded at the end of 2015 when lack of insurance was no longer an issue in finding dental care.
Throughout the years, Dr. Dailey’s practice grew beyond the walls of his original 2 operatory office on Pennsylvania Ave. In 2010, Dr. Dailey relocated his practice to his new building located at 1268 Maple Avenue. With 4 brand new operatories and room to grow, Dr. Dailey is able to advance his technology, grow his staff, and serve his patients more effectively and efficiently.
When not at work, Dr. Dailey enjoys spending his time with his wife and three beautiful children. He enjoys hunting, fishing, skiing, boating and the outdoors.
