"This is by far the best practice I have ever been to. They do not judge you and (they) treat you with respect and concern. I would highly recommend them to anyone that has not been to the dentist in a while because of fear or whatever reason...This practice truly cares!"
Arthur D., New Ipswich
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, two endodontists 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
Over the last few years our team 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 patients learn about, understand and appreciate their dental health. We assist them in creating individualized care plans towards their own goals. Their successes become our successes. It’s been an amazing journey.
Because we offer three choices for sedation (inhalation, oral and intravenous) as an option for all our services, fearful patients who would not otherwise be able to have dental care are served in a respectful, comfortable and anxiety-free way. We serve patients from across New Hampshire, from Massachusetts and Vermont (as well as a few international patients). It's an honor for us to do so. We appreciate and value their trust.
We've been creating all of this for the last four years 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 NHCCD 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 is board-certified and one of our general dentists has been selected by peers as one of New Hampshire's Top Dentists for the last two years.
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 NHCCD are certified in local anesthesia, as well as administering and monitoring nitrous oxide sedation. Our Dental Assistants have strived for and attained national certification as CDA’s. Our two Patient Advocates and administrative team are talented and skilled, focusing 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!
