P. Raymond Phelan, DMD
Ray attended the University of New Hampshire and Providence College and graduated from Tufts University School of Dental Medicine in 1977. He followed that with a one-year General Practice Residency at Womack Army General Hospital, Ft. Bragg, N.C. After eight years as a general practitioner, he completed a two year Prosthetic residency at Walter Reed Army Medical Center. In 1994, he retired from military service and joined his brother's practice. The goal of the practice is to provide long-term predictable results integrating good sound function with pleasing aesthetics. Toward that end he completes numerous hours of continuing education that focus on restoring patients with long lasting, biologically proven care.
His secret desire is to get patients to the point where he is minimally needed. Away from the office he is addicted to golf, which is usually combined with hikes in the woods. His very favorite activity is spending time with friends and if a grill can be included, all the better!
