Under the leadership of Dr. David Pearce, Baldwinsville Gentle Dentistry has provided patients with top-notch care since 1995. With a focus on patient comfort, education, and prevention, he has given countless patients a reason to smile.
Dr. Pearce realized that he wanted to become a dentist when he was 8 years old. “I thought I would enjoy either being a dentist or flying planes off an aircraft carrier,” he said. “In high school, I decided that if I became a dentist, I would be able to work with my hands (which I’ve always enjoyed), be my own boss (which I learned, through summer jobs, would best suit my personality), and if I wanted to fly, I could get my private pilot’s license (which I did).”
Other than providing him with the opportunity to work with his hands, Dr. Pearce loves the endless opportunities that dentistry provides to learn new techniques and procedures. He also enjoys being “part of a team that appreciates the process of becoming the best they can be as individuals and creating an environment in which they feel safe to learn by making mistakes.” This is one of many reasons that the rest of us love working at Baldwinsville Gentle Dentistry.
Dr. Pearce hasn’t completely let go of his childhood dreams, as if he weren’t a dentist, he’d be a pilot or a business leadership consultant. In fact, one of his favorite pastimes is learning how to run a successful business through Mastermind meetings with other business owners. With Dr. Pearce’s dedication to continued education and growth, it’s no wonder the practice continues to thrive.
We’d be remiss if we didn’t leave you with some parting words of advice from Dr. Pearce: “Strive to improve your health; if you’re not intentional about making improvements, your mouth and body will become less healthy over time.”
