Dr. Nicholas Roy was born and raised in Lewiston, Maine. Growing up he enjoyed playing hockey, running, and track and field. He attended UVM for his undergraduate studies, and upon completing his B.S. in Chemistry, Dr. Roy headed south to The University of Connecticut School of Dental Medicine, a top-rated dental school. It was an immensely rewarding educational experience, and Dr. Roy took advantage of the many opportunities presented to deepen his knowledge. During this time, Dr. Roy developed a passion for comprehensive care, which is a style of dental treatment that looks at the big picture of a person’s mouth and related systems, along with their overall systemic health. In order to help patients with such complex needs, he decided to enter an Advanced Education in General Dentistry (AEGD) program in Richmond, Virginia. This experience gave him the confidence and skills necessary to perform implant dentistry
, full mouth rehabilitation, sedation dentistry
, and complex surgical treatment.
After returning to his home state, Dr. Roy decided to help those in need by joining a public health facility. This gave him time to give back, while evaluating where he’d like to plant his roots. A chance encounter led him to join Dr. Wayne Lopez and Dr. Jin Hwang. Dr. Lopez had built an extensive patient base in Gorham in the 1970s-1990s. Dr. Lopez moved his practice to Buxton in 1999, into a house built in 1812. Although this house was excellent for a dentist in the final years of their career, it could not support the efficient and comprehensive care Dr. Roy envisioned for his patients. He acquired the practice in 2013 and began to craft the practice of his dreams.
