Our Newest Office
Posted on 02/13/2017

As some of you may or may not already know, Chestnut Dental opened its doors in 1970 in Needham, MA.  Since then, we have grown into a privately owned group practice that expanded to Franklin in 1999 and most recently to Bedford in April 2016.  As the newest member of Chestnut Dental’s pediatric team, I have been spending most of my time in Bedford, helping to open the practice. It has been challenging and exciting, as not many young dentists get the chance to be involved in helping a practice grow from the beginning. 


One aspect of my involvement in our newest office has been trying to get to know the neighborhood.  I have been spending my time attending various community activities, including Bedford Town Day, The Goddard School’s Trunk or Treat and story times at various daycares and preschools. I have to say, my favorite part of community outreach so far has been the story time visits.  Getting to tell the kids stories, show them how to brush their teeth and hear their hilarious questions has been great fun!  To wrap up my visit, I often play a game that involves the children yelling out whether the food I am holding up in my hand is “GOOD!” or “BAD!”  Inevitably, there is at least one child who throws their dad (never their mom) under the bus by stating, “My dad drinks soda!” or “My dad eats candy” or, even better, “My dad won’t eat vegetables!”  It never fails to make me and the teachers laugh!  All in all, I have enjoyed my time in Bedford and I hope to see the practice continue to grow!
