Dr. Gillette's Published Work

Dr. Gillette is a lifelong learner who is committed to continuing education and expanding the range of services available to Ward Road Dental patients. In 2016, Dr. Gillette co-authored an article on CAD/CAM dental crowns that was published in Operative Dentistry.

Drawing Inspiration From the Air Force

Dr. Gillette learned a great deal during his time in the military, but the Air Force’s core values in particular made an impression on him: integrity first, service before self, and excellence in all we do. Dr. Gillette took those values to heart and uses them in his approach to dentistry.

A Dentist and Family Man

The staff is always so chipper and happy to see every one of their patients. I never felt rushed or insecure about the work that I was getting done... I am so happy to have found Dr Gillette! I recommend this office to everyone, children and adults alike.
