          your future Dental Home.


A message from Dr. David N. Bardwell:

"Dear Friends,

    As some of you may already be aware I am sad to say I will be stepping away from patient treatment after 32 years of service to the community. In November of 1989, when we first opened the doors to the practice, I could not have imagined how great a ride it would be. I have genuinely enjoyed getting to know my patients and feel a real sense of sadness at departing and missing those provider/patient relationships.
    I cherish every memory and feel humbled to have known you during my professional clinical career. I will, when the need arises, be involved in a non-clinical capacity and provide help with re-care Periodic and Comprehensive exams during staff shortages. I will not, however, be providing restorative or critical care. I am proud to say, I enjoyed providing you with the best Dental Care possible and appreciate your many years of support.
    For those of you that I have not been able to tell personally, I apologize. The decision did not come cavalierly, but most sincerely, stepping away at retirement age to pass the baton to a new generation of quality dental providers. It truly is their time!
    For those of you that may have on-going treatment with me, please rest assured that I have made provision in the practice for your treatment to be completed. Your continuing care going forward will be entrusted to Dr’s Cardarelli, Schweitzer and Refahi. Due to the high demand for quality Dental Care, our present providers are most often booking appointments 4-8 weeks out. We hope to shorten that timeline significantly by bringing in another provider sometime in the new year.
    I would like to thank our talented team, all the dental staff that have moved on, as well as our fantastic patients past and present. Your loyalty and support have really made my time rewarding and heart-warming. I wish you all good health & happiness going forward.

Yours sincerely,

David N. Bardwell DMD, MS"


I would like to take this opportunity to personally thank Dr. Bardwell for his impact in my development from student to provider and my personal growth as a dentist.  I met Dr. Bardwell during my training at Tufts and I am happy (and shocked!) to say that we have known each other for nearly 12 years! During that time he has demonstrated how to provide for people with care, compassion and patience. I know I still have a lot to learn from "Dr. B" and I know our friendship will allow me those opportunities in the future.  For now, I thank him, and I thank all our patients for entrusting myself and our fantastic team with their care going forward!

Our community has been through a lot over these past few years and we continue to navigate this new normal.  While many things have changed, one thing has remained the same: our commitment to your safety.

Infection control has always been a top priority for our practice and you may have seen this during your visits to our office. Our infection control processes are made so that when you receive care, it’s both safe and comfortable.  Our office follows infection control recommendations made by the American Dental Association (ADA), the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA). 

You may see some changes when it is time for your next appointment. We made these changes to help protect our patients and staff. For example:

  • Many of our office forms have gone digital!  You will receive an email from our office to update forms via our website and portal. You may be asked some of the same questions again when you are in the office.
  • Due to the increase of COVID-like symptoms that may come with cold and flu season as well as the rise in new cases in MA, appointments may need to be rescheduled.  We hope to keep your appointments as scheduled to the best of our abilities.  Please understand any changes are made with the best interest for the health of our patients and staff in mind.
  • Please limit extra companions on your trip to our office to only essential people in order to reduce the number of people in our reception area.
  • We have hand sanitizer that we will ask you to use when you enter the office. You will also find some in the reception area and other places in the office for you to use as needed.

Please understand that these steps are being taken out of an abundance of concern for your health, as well as that of the other patients being seen in the office as well as the doctor and the staff.

We look forward to seeing you again and are happy to answer any questions you may have about the steps we take to keep you, and every patient, safe in our practice. To make an appointment, please call our office at (978) 683-8855 or make your appointments through this website.

Please review our Phase 1 Reopen Attestation form. 

Thank you for being our patient. We value your trust and loyalty and look forward to welcoming back our patients, neighbors and friends.
