Seekonk Native Named America's Best 40 under 40 Dentist


Last month Seekonk native Dr. Nick Lavoie ventured down to Manhattan, NY as part of the honor of being chosen for Incisal Edge Magazine’s “Top 40 Under 40, America’s Best Young Dentists” Award!

Dentists are “nominated by industry experts from around the country and vetted by an independent panel — whether they’re renowned for their medical innovations, their volunteer work and philanthropy or simply their commitment to outstanding patient care, these 40 honorees represent the best of dentistry today, and the promise of even better dentistry tomorrow.”

The trip included an opportunity to socialize with other dentist nominees from across the country (as well as a few dentist friends from the area). It also involved a “red carpet experience,” where each award recipient was dressed in designer clothes, styled, and photographed for features on “The Daily Floss” as well as in “Incisal Edge Magazine” itself.

Dr. Lavoie has more exciting news coming in the next month as he prepares to open own dental practice, Lavoie Pediatric Dentistry serving the community where he was raised. The office at 2200 GAR Highway Suite 2a in Swansea is planned to open on August 6th.

Dr. Lavoie grew up in Seekonk, MA; went to Seekonk schools elementary through high school, then UMass Dartmouth for Bachelors in Nursing. He worked at Charlton Memorial Hospital in Fall River on Atwood 4 as a nurse aide through college and as an RN there for 1 year.
