Meet Our Team
Meet Selim Alptekin, DMD (“Dr. Sal”)
Dr. Sal completed his dental training at the Boston University Dental School. After receiving his Doctor of Dental Medicine degree, he went on to complete a rigorous 2-year dental implant course and became a member of the American Academy of Implant Dentistry. During his implant training, he chose sedation dentistry as his area of concentration. He has also taken a variety of courses in: short term adult orthodontics (“fast” braces); dental sleep medicine; endodontics; and dental technology.
A perfectionist at heart, Dr. Sal strives to complete each treatment as carefully as if it were for himself or one of his children. That’s why he has expanded the technology available in our practice to include lasers, drill-free fillings, and medication-free NuCalm techniques. Even though he has over 15 years of experience as a family dentist, he feels that staying abreast of the latest in patient care opportunities is always important to the people we serve.
When he isn’t caring for patients, he and his wife (both of whom are fluent in Turkish!) prefer spending time with their young children. Dr. Sal also enjoys playing a few different musical instruments, playing tennis, and cycling.
