Why Did You Decide to Become a Dentist?
Dr. Kevin D’Andrea joined our team in 2018 and has worked in the dental field since 2016. He loves having the opportunity to help patients by relieving pain, partnering with them to achieve their healthiest smiles, and giving them the care they need to smile with confidence in any situation. He is dedicated to helping all patients and has always wanted to go into a field that allowed working with his hands and providing care to those in need.
Additionally, Dr. D’Andrea saw the passion that his father had for the dental profession and for all of his patients. This played a major role in what made him want to be a part of what his father established with the dental office.
Where Did You Study Dentistry?
After graduating from Notre Dame West Haven High School, Dr. D’Andrea completed his undergraduate studies in biology at Providence College. He went on to earn his doctor of dental medicine from the University of Connecticut School of Dental Medicine. He then completed a general practice residency program at the Abington Jefferson Hospital in the Philadelphia suburbs where he was trained in hospital-based dentistry and emergency dental care. Today, he is a member of the American Dental Association and the Academy of General Dentistry. At the Academy, he is working towards earning his fellowship.
Additionally, Dr. D’Andrea, along with five other students, planned and participated in a week-long service trip to provide dental care for the people of Grenada who have little to no access to necessary dentistry services. He has also been involved with Mission of Mercy for the past four years, which involves a weekend of providing free dental care to those less fortunate and not capable of accessing care.
