AKA “Dr. Rick”, is a native of Michigan. His passion for dentistry started while working as a dental assistant serving active duty military in the U.S. Air Force. This led him to attend the University of Michigan, where he earned both his B.S. degree and D.D.S. degree. For more than 38 years, Dr. Rick has been providing comprehensive family dental care in Allenstown, Northwood, Hooksett, Bradford, Belmont and Pittsfield New Hampshire.
