Dr. David Pelham – Dream Smile Dental

Accepting New Patients - Call Us: (781) 330-0900


Dr. Pelham, a Massachusetts native, was born in Boston. This Bostonian's mother was a school teacher in nearby Stoughton, while his father worked for a Boston shipyard. Inspired by his interest and curiosity for dentistry, he went on to Tufts University and then Harvard University to receive his periodontal specialization degree. He continues to hold an honorable job as a clinical instructor at the Harvard School of Medicine, because he enjoys the satisfaction of teaching and continues to learn from the experience.

"Every patient is different and has different needs" says Dr. Pelham. "I work to tailor to each patient and strive to ensure comfort and satisfaction." Dr. Pelham strongly believes that all patients should be well informed and all treatment should be accomplished as comfortably as possible.

Implants have revolutionized dentistry, and the three additional perio training years Dr. Pelham has spent at Harvard, have made it possible for him to place implants safely and effectively. "Implants are as close as you can get to giving someone back their original teeth".
