Dr. David Bogacz, DMD
“Don’t worry, be happy!” – Bobby Mcferrin
Dr. Bogacz takes the concerns of his patients seriously and has built a career dedicated to personalized care and mutual respect. Patients are never treated like a number in a chart. He believes in treating each patient like family and giving them the care that they deserve. He is the dentist for the residents of Merrimack County Nursing Home and the Glencliff Home for the Elderly, overseeing their public health dental programs. He and a dental hygienist provide dental care in a dental clinic at the facilities.
David helped a New Hampshire FQHC open a dental clinic. The clinic is a teaching site for the University of New England Dental School. He is on the support staff of the FQHC, covering for the dental director when she is away and is a preceptor for the UNE Dental School.
When David is not practicing dentistry, he and his wife are snowboarding as much as they can. Their daughter is now in graduate school in California and they visit her as much as they can. He has gotten into craft brewing with a friend and they are thinking of starting a nano-brewery someday. Ask him about the wood-fired pizza oven he built in his backyard.
