To Dr. Herr, dentistry is all about forming relationships with patients. Before entering dental school, Dr. Herr had an opportunity to shadow other dentists while he was still earning his undergraduate education. It was in his time there that he realized how dentists could leave a positive impact on people as well as that person’s entire family. Seeing that relationship unfold while also being able to change that person’s life is what really makes all the hard work worth it.

Dr. Andrew Luccio

North Attleboro Massachusetts dentist Doctor Andrew Luccio

Dr. Luccio had always been drawn to healthcare, but dentistry stood out to him because of how closely he’d get to be working with his patients. He notes that dentists have a very unique role when it comes to the doctor-patient relationship. These relationships can easily last a lifetime, and the more he learned how dental disease and gum disease represented two of the most common diseases in America, the more he realized how important teeth really are. He quickly realized how a career in dentistry would allow him to make a pretty incredible impact on his community. For these reasons, he feels it’s an honor every day to walk through the doors of this dental office and provide patients the care they need.

Dr. Poya jafari

North Attleboro Massachusetts dentist Doctor Poya Jafari

Originally from Auburn, MA, Dr. Jafari always knew that he loved biology, but wasn’t sure where he would take his passion for science as a career. At a young age, he always helped his father around the house and he knew he enjoyed working with his hands. By the time he was in high school, Dr. Jafari had the opportunity to shadow dentists while visiting Iran with his family. He realized that dentistry provided the perfect combination of engineering and biology. Being able to talk to patients directly and experience this face-to-face dynamic was what truly sealed the deal for Dr. Jafari’s career in dentistry.
