“I really enjoy the interaction I have with my patients. By being personally interested in their lives, I get to know them on a deeper level, and I find this helps them relax and have a greater degree of confidence and trust in me. As a result, I have many patients who have been seeing me for years, and in some cases, I’m now treating their children and grandchildren.”

Peter T. Wasserman, DDS
From the Dentist:
“My fascination with dentistry began at an early age when I was still interested in dinosaurs. Seeing their fossilized teeth intrigued me! Today, I’m still intrigued by all aspects of dentistry – I love helping my patients achieve healthy, beautiful smiles and a lifetime of oral health.
I feel it is very important to earn my patients’ trust. I encourage them to ask plenty of questions and I spend a lot of time during the consultation process to make sure they are comfortable with the treatment plan, prior to starting the work.”
