Hello and welcome to our website!!
My name is Dave Vocal. I was born in California and raised in Ohio. I am the fortunate spouse of my lovely wife, Chrissa with whom we have three sons: Theo, Elias, and Mateo. I keep very busy with family activities which include hiking, biking, skiing, and last but not least, coaching soccer.
I have been blessed to volunteer dental services at The Root Cellar in Portland, along with dental missions in Greece, Belize, and Haiti.
My dental philosophy has always been to partner with my patients in their dental health without judgment or making them feel embarrassed. I believe dentistry can be experienced in a comfortable environment where a patient always feels like they have a choice.
This patient-centered philosophy has led me to place a high value on furthering my dental education in order to provide my patients the latest options for their dental treatment.
I graduated from The Ohio State University College of Dentistry and have been in practice for over 25 years. I am a member of the Academy of General Dentistry, World Congress of Minimally Invasive Dentistry, and Seacoast Esthetic Dentistry Association. I am also a board member of Health Equip whose mission is to provide international medical and dental services and equipment to missions caring for those who cannot care for themselves.
I’ve experienced many different types of dental atmospheres, but since arriving to 84 Maine Street in the early part of 2012, my vision to care for one person at a time has been a rewarding achievement.
The team and I look forward to making you feel safe and comfortable in a friendly atmosphere.
