Our History and Who We Are
Allow us to introduce ourselves! New Hampshire Center for Comprehensive Dentistry is a multi-specialty practice of general dentists, an endodontist, and a periodontist, providing patients with a full range of dental care services under one roof in Amherst, New Hampshire.
Our practice has been serving patients throughout southern New Hampshire since 1990. However, our vision for how we deliver that care and what we could become has changed in that time.
A New Vision
The team at New Hampshire Center for Comprehensive Dentistry is committed and has worked hard to create a model of comprehensive care that is patient focused and relationship based to ensure that we see, hear, and treat the whole patient. Our team approach uses a guided process of co-discovery that helps people learn about, understand, and appreciate their dental health. We assist each person in creating an individualized care plan toward his/her own goals. Their successes become our successes. It’s been an amazing journey.
Because patients have three choices for sedation (inhalation, oral, and intravenous) as an option for all our services, adults and children who are fearful, or who would otherwise not be able to have dental care, are served in a respectful, comfortable, and anxiety-free way. People travel to us from across New Hampshire, Massachusetts, and Vermont–we even have a few international patients. It’s an honor for us to serve every one, and we appreciate and value their trust.
We started creating all of this years ago under our previous name, Amerident Dental Associates. However, the name confused people who thought we were part of a chain, an emergency clinic, or an insurance company. We were even asked if Amerident did auto body repair. The name did not fit who we now are, how we care for our patients, or our vision for the future. So, in late 2010, our team decided to create a new name that better represents us: New Hampshire Center for Comprehensive Dentistry.
A Team of Professionals
The dentists at New Hampshire Center for Comprehensive Dentistry are committed to high-quality, comprehensive care. They each have from six to over twenty years of experience and are committed to ongoing professional growth and continuing advanced education (including Spear Education and local study clubs). Our periodontist and endodontist are both board certified, and several of the dentists have been selected by their peers as among New Hampshire’s Top Dentists.
Our equipment, materials, and processes are thoughtfully selected for quality and excellent results. Being chart-free and fully digital allows us instant access to information, giving us time to focus more of our attention on patients. Our Zeiss microscope provides a high standard of care and is available for root canal treatments, cosmetic dentistry and other procedures as needed.
Hygienists at New Hampshire Center for Comprehensive Dentistry are certified in local anesthesia, as well as administering and monitoring nitrous oxide sedation. Our dental assistants have striven for and attained national certification as CDAs. Our two patient advocates and administrative team are talented, skilled, and focused on quality service, creating strong patient relationships and a great experience with each patient contact. Each team member is committed to achieving the best for themselves, each other, the practice, and our patients.
We love the path we’re on, how it’s changing our lives and those of our patients. The difference we’re making in the world starts at our door. Welcome!
