Why Did You Want to
Become a Dentist?

Dr. Candon grew up in a small town in Vermont and has always been passionate about helping others. It was this desire to better his community, combined with his excellent hand skills, that led him to fall in love with dentistry. There is really no better profession for a perfectionist like Dr. Candon.

Growing up Dr. Candon found himself frequently going to the dental office for treatment. Early on he was afraid of the dental visits until one of his dentists offered to let him ask him questions about the dental work throughout the visits. This soon changed his perception as he found himself asking genuinely curious questions about the dentistry, and started him down the path to becoming a dentist himself. Dr. Candon knows what it's like to fear going to the dentist, and strives to ensure your experience is comfortable and enjoyable every time. This dental office is a place where you'll be treated like family, and look forward to coming.

Dr. Candon is qualified in all aspects of general dentistry and prides himself on providing a comfortable dental experience. As a clinician, he is particularly passionate about helping high-fear dental patients receive comfortable and safe care. He promises to deliver high quality dentistry in a modern and comfortable environment.
