Name of Practice:

Three Rivers Dental

Why He Was Nominated

Dr. Reilly’s new practice is like a Sharper Image store for dental gadgets. He treats patients in electronic massage chairs and invites them to watch their crowns being made.

Philosophy

“Technology makes everything we already do in dentistry easier. It makes treatment more conservative and diagnoses more accurate.”

Inspiration

“I know how much dental work helped me in the past. I wanted to be there to give that help to someone else.”

Something People Don't Know

Dr. Reilly’s front teeth are fake. He knocked them out (the first time, anyway) in fourth grade by running into a gymnasium wall. Then came a hockey accident, a skiing accident and — seriously — a sneeze. “I was on a date, and everything was going well until I sneezed and they flew out,” he says. Unable to find his front teeth on the floor of a dark car, he had to ask for help. “I don’t think I got a second date,” he says.
