Richard M. Farina, DMD
Dentistry means everything to me. It has shaped the type of person I am and what I am able to accomplish for so many. I have served many different people with many different problems. The profession is extremely challenging as well as changing and is never dull or boring.
I earned my BS in Pharmacy from Northeastern University graduating with honors. I then continued my educational pursuit and received my DMD Degree at Tufts University School of Dental Medicine graduating in 1983. I am constantly taking continuing education courses, which take me all over the country, to find the best possible dental education. I feel keeping up with the latest technologies, materials and procedures is what we should be doing to provide the best care and options to our patients.
What excites me the most is to be able to restore a patient to aesthetic function when they thought that they were beyond help. We have many cases and pictures of patients who are extremely pleased with how their work has come out when they thought they would be suffering the rest of their lives as dental cripples with missing teeth, bad smiles, or even no teeth. Using the extensive training and employing the advanced technology we have in the office makes this all possible.
I like to keep very active while I’m not working or doing dental related courses. I snow ski, snowboard, hike, water ski, golf, scuba dive and enjoy most any outdoor activities. I have also been an active member in The Order Sons of Italy in America, which has provided millions of dollars to such worthwhile causes as Alzheimer’s research, cancer research, and Cooley’s Anemia, for well over 28 years. I also support various local causes such as the food pantry.

Ruth, Practice Manager
I joined the dental field in 2005 after taking an entry level front desk position. Within that first year, I was promoted to an Office Management position and a year after that, I was promoted to a Regional Management position overseeing more than 10 practices. I have worked in a variety of dental office environments, cooperate settings, smaller group practices and individual private practices. I started working with Dr. Farina in 2013 managing the practice and overseeing the day-to-day financial and business administrative needs. My favorite part about this job is making a difference in people’s lives. There is such reward in seeing people smile and knowing you were a part of that transformation in some way.
I find great personal fulfillment in growing a team, tackling new challenges and measuring the progress that is being made is. My husband and I are Seacoast area transplants but have grown very fond of all that this area has to offer. I definitely keep busy when I am not at work! When I am not designing the next phase of our home renovation project, I am probably chasing our two yorkies around and finding ways to squeeze in quality time with friends and family.

That’s why I love spending time with patients, establishing a rapport and providing compassionate care to all.
When I have leisurely time I enjoy spending it with my husband, son, and extended family. I have a great love for the outdoors and anything that has to do with the White Mountains of New Hampshire. I absolutely love to shop and I am very passionate about home decor crafting as well.
