On March 1st, 1980 New England Dental Center was born. In conjunction with opening New England Dental Center, Dr. Feldberg would go on to appear as “Doctor Happy Tooth” on the nationally syndicated prime time TV show, PM Magazine.

With thirteen chairs and sixty five hours of appointment times including four evenings until 7pm and Saturdays till 3pm, Dr. Feldberg established a facility dedicated to providing patient centered care. Staffed by a team Dental Professionals, New England Dental Center provides the most modern dental services including digital imaging and implant tooth replacement.
