About our Dentists

Pediatric Dentists

Our pediatric dentists have trained for an additional two years beyond dental school to understand the unique needs of infants and children as well as those with special needs.  It is this training as well as our years of experience that allows us to better understand children and provide them with quality dental care in a caring and compassionate manner.

Dr. Jon Wendell

A native of Plaistow, Dr. Wendell attended UNH before completing his dental school at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill.  From there, he went on to specialize in pediatric dentistry at Boston Children’s Hospital / Harvard School of Dental Medicine.

Dr. Wendell lives on the seacoast in New Hampshire with his family.

Dr. Deb Filocoma

Cosmetic and Family Dentist

Dr. Tina Ho

Dr. Tina Ho is a cosmetic and family dentist who has been associated with the practice for over 10 years.
