Practicing dentistry is something I have always wanted to do. I always admired my dad as a kid, and working with him for almost a decade only heightened that admiration. I have had the opportunity to meet so many wonderful people, and the friendships that I’ve built with my patients and their families are the real day-to-day reward that this career has provided.
Early on, I decided to focus on working with patients to figure out a plan that would improve or maintain their quality of life. Once we figure that out, we take the appropriate steps to meet their goals.
Education and Experience
Before starting my career at Suncook Dental, I studied at Villanova University, where I received a degree in comprehensive science (basically, a degree in chemistry and biology). I trained as a dental technician for two years under the tutelage of certified dental technicians Armand and Michael Auger, and earned my Doctorate of Dental Medicine from Tufts University School of Dental Medicine.
Continuing education is essential to every profession, especially dentistry. I stay aware of the latest technology and dental treatments, and I make it a point to keep our office current.
I am a member of several professional associations that provide opportunities for continuing education, including the American Dental Association, the New Hampshire Dental Society, the Massachusetts Dental Society, the Greater Concord Dental Society (of which I have served as past president twice), the New England Dental Society (of which I have served as president and board member), and the Capital Area study club; and I serve on the Allied Dental Education board at the New Hampshire Technical Institute.
Commitment to Community
I am blessed to have been born and raised, and now live and work, in such a wonderful community. I find myself looking forward to seeing my patients so that together, we can not only improve their oral health, but we can build upon the relationship and conversations we had at their last appointment. I have been honored as a Top Dentist in New Hampshire the last seven years.
