From a very young age dentistry has shaped the type of person I have become. I grew up running around my father’s dental office in rural Wisconsin. However, not every visit to his office was fun and games. On the last day of school in the fourth grade, I broke my two front teeth. Over the next 20 years, I experienced nearly every possible dental procedure. As the years went by, I noticed how important my smile was to my self-image and confidence. I realized the great gift dentistry provides. When you’re no longer embarrassed by your teeth, you’re always ready to smile.
My desire to help others address their similar dental issues aided me in my decision to attend dental school. Tufts University School of Dental Medicine in Boston gave me the tools and knowledge to help improve the smiles and confidence of others. I know that each individual has a unique situation. As a result, at Three Rivers Dental I strive to ensure that my patients feel comfortable sharing their stories and challenges so together we can create a personalized treatment plan that meets their goals.
My Education and Commitment to Continuing Education
As a dental professional, I must stay up-to-date with current treatment options including the latest technology, procedures, and materials. I regularly participate in continuing dental education and advanced skills training at seminars across the country. This enables me to provide my patients with the highest quality of care.
Upon graduating from Tufts, I initially worked as an associate dentist at Dr. Richard Farina’s practice in the Lakes Region. After three great years of treating patients at his practice, I pursued my dream and opened my own practice, Three Rivers Dental, in Greenland, NH.
While studying at Tufts in Boston, I met the love of my life, Marisa. We were married in Portsmouth and have two amazing children Lukas and Lydia.
We currently reside in Stratham, NH and when we are not working, we spend as much time outdoors as possible. We both love the water and enjoy boating, swimming, and water skiing. I value a healthy balance between my passion for dentistry and spending time with my family and friends.
I look forward to learning about your family and interests at your next dental visit!
