Plainville Dentist Supports Adults With Disabilities During Holidays
- December 18, 2015
PLAINVILLE, CT – Dr. Thomas Peltzer, a renowned sedation dentist, is supporting a local organization that gives assistance and career opportunities to adults with disabilities.
Dr. Peltzer, who operates Gentle Dental Care, is providing monthly donations to support the Bristol Adult Resource Center’s holiday party.
“We are proud supporters of the Bristol Adult Resource Center,” Dr. Peltzer said. “This is an incredible organization that helps adults manage and overcome their disabilities. The center has influenced so many lives, and we’re happy to lend a hand.”
Gentle Dental Care is a long-time supporter of Bristol Adult Resource Center, an organization that provides resources and assistance to adults with disabilities. The center partners with local adults to operate a cafe and special candy kitchen during the holidays, along with various other businesses.
Dr. Peltzer makes regular donations to the Bristol Adult Resource Center and encourages patients to support the organization as well. In the spring, Bristol Adult Resource Center will hold its annual gala, “A Night for Our Stars to Shine.”
“The Bristol Adult Resource Center has had such a positive effect on the community for more than 50 years, so we want to help the organization continue its excellence,” Dr. Peltzer said. “I have had many patients who have been helped by the center, and I suspect the same is true for hundreds of people in the community. So we appreciate their presence in the community.”
Dr. Peltzer is trained in all phases of dentistry, including oral surgery, preventive dentistry, cosmetic dentistry, sedation dentistry, dental implants, gum disease treatment and root canals. Dr. Peltzer uses dental implants to replace missing teeth or to stabilize dentures. Dental implants nearly mimic natural teeth and can be restored with individual crowns or dentures.
Dr. Peltzer earned his undergraduate degree from Brown University and graduated at the top of his class at the University of Connecticut School of Dental Medicine. While he was establishing his Plainville dental practice, Dr. Peltzer served at University of Connecticut School of Dental Medicine as clinical faculty.
As a child, Dr. Peltzer had a terrible dental experience that left him afraid of the dentist for years. Once he decided to become a dentist, he vowed to learn gentle and compassionate dental practices that would ease patients’ pains and fear. Dr. Peltzer is considered one of the country’s leading experts in dental sedation and dental anesthesia and has completed hundreds of hours in continuing education on sedation every year.
Dr. Peltzer is a member of the American Society of Dentist Anesthesiologists, American Dental Society of Anesthesiology and Academy of Laser Dentistry and has earned his Fellowship in Dental Anesthesiology. Dr. Peltzer also has spent the last 15 years as one of just a few dentists in the world to practice as a member of the Clinical Research Associates.
Dr. Peltzer was recognized as one of America’s Top Dentists by the Consumers Research Council of America for Dental Excellence in 2011, 2012, 2013, 2014 and 2015.
