Meet Dr. Jerry O’Dwyer
A Passion for Healthy Smiles
It’s a privilege to have spent the last 20 years caring for the dental health and smiles of my friends and neighbors. There are not many professions where a person becomes an integral part of their patient’s life: I love watching patients’ families grow and change, seeing their children mature and bring their children to me, and celebrating special occasions with them.
I am honored to be able to care for one of a person’s most important assets: their dental health. Not only does a healthy mouth lead to a healthier body, but a healthy smile means a person feels better about their appearance. As a dentist, whether I’m relieving pain, restoring function, or beautifying a smile, I’m making a positive and lasting difference for that person. I cannot imagine a more fulfilling profession.
Education and Commitment to Continuing Education
I was awarded my Doctorate of Dental Surgery (DDS) by the University of Maryland Dental School. While that education provided me with an exceptional fundamental understanding of dentistry, this is a rapidly changing field. Developments in techniques, materials, and technology are constant; in order to deliver the highest level of care possible, it’s imperative I remain current on the changes.
As a member of the American Dental Association and Connecticut State Dental Association, I am able to take many hours of continuing education each year. Whether I’m attending a conference or lecture, participating in a hands-on demonstration, or reading the latest oral healthcare journals, I’m constantly learning. This ensures my patients have access to the best care possible, meaning the most comfortable, effective, and efficient treatments.
In the Community
I feel blessed to have the opportunity to give back to our community, which has treated me so well. I participate in Give Kids a Smile and the Connecticut Mission of Mercy, which delivers free dental care to the underserved.
After growing up in Brewster, NY, I’ve called Avon, CT my home for the last 15 years. My beautiful wife Roberta and I have a lovely daughter, Jacenda and a handsome young son, Liam. Our home includes two wonderful Labradoodles, Nemo and Nyah, too.
When I’m not working, my priority is being with my family. We love to ski and we love the water. I’m also an avid hiker.
