Why Choose Us?


Discovery Dental’s mission is to be a place “Where Everybody Knows Your Name.” Here, it’s more than a recognizable catchphrase from a classic 80s TV show. It’s how our team defines dentistry. Cheers, the TV show that featured a Boston bar, created an iconic focus on personalized customer care that we take to heart. It is the gold standard for how our patients are treated when they walk through the door. 

Quality dental care, conveniently in your neighborhood.

Because your comfort is important to us, we offer many of the modern amenities you’ve come to expect in a dental office like headphones and a tea and coffee bar. We believe that whatever your dental needs may be, you will be treated with the highest quality dentistry available and with the most compassionate, respectful care you deserve.
