Dr. Phillis' bio

This content was provided by Dr. Phillis "“My passion for orthodontics is because of the role I get to play in helping provide my patients with beautiful, healthy smiles!" “I am originally from Ohio and came to Nashua after completing my dental and orthodontic training at Tufts School of Dental Medicine. My wife, Mary, is a native New Englander who grew up in Rhode Island, so settling here in Nashua was an easy way to stay in touch with her family. Both of us are very active in the community, supporting the schools and the symphony. Of course just keeping up with the individual schedules of our six children keeps us quite busy.” — Dr. Phillis Dr. Phillis did his dental and orthodontic training at Tufts University School of Dental Medicine and graduated summa cum laude and valedictorian of his dental class in 1980. He is board certified by the American Board of Orthodontics. From 1982, Dr. Phillis has taught at Tufts Dental School in the orthodontic department as an assistant clinical professor.
