Dr. Allison Piper purchased the practice and renamed it “Belfast Dental Care” in 2014. She has found her calling, building on the tremendous base of Dr. John Slaughter's forty years of work, laser-focused on providing excellence in dentistry and a wonderful experience for each patient. Dr. Piper is passionate about the Vision for Belfast Dental Care, for both patients and colleagues. "Oral health is too important and too personal to our patients not to give it everything we've got," she says.
Dr. Piper grew up in the Hudson Valley of New York, each summer visiting family DownEast in Franklin, Maine. At 18 years old, she moved to Boston to attend Boston University. She experimented with several career paths, then found dentistry, first as a volunteer dental assistant for Boston Healthcare for the Homeless, and hasn’t looked back.
A 2011 graduate of Tufts University School of Dental Medicine, Dr. Piper moved to Belfast in 2012 with her wife, Lindsey, to be closer to both of their families (and the promise of free babysitting!). They have since had two beautiful daughters, Ruby and Colette, who are the center of their universe. When not running a small business, every moment is spent with family and friends. She feels incredibly blessed to have so many wonderful people in her life.
Dr. Piper’s infectious enthusiasm is evident in her dentistry, patient care, community orientation and workplace. She has collected a great staff around her mantra of “Let's make each day great!".
