Meet Our Team
Selim Alptekin, DMD (“Dr. Sal”)
A perfectionist at heart, and described as being “fussy at what he does,” Dr Alptekin delivers skilled and highly personal dentistry to his patients with the use of the latest technologies and advancements in dentistry.
Dr. Alptekin wanted to become a dentist at a young age. He was inspired by his childhood dentist who painstakingly fashioned him a crown by hand to preserve his baby teeth. His dentist’s passion and devotion impressed young Dr. Alptekin so much that he decided to follow that same example and deliver top quality dentistry.
Dr. Alptekin completed his dental training at Boston University Dental School and practiced general dentistry for ten years before completing a year long Dental Implantology Program at Puerto Rico University. There he learned the science and unique techniques of Dental Implantology under Dr. Tatum, one of the founders of the field. During his implant training, he chose Sedation Dentistry as his area of concentration. He has been helping patients with Implant Dentistry and Sedation for 12 years.
He is constantly refining his skills and advancing his knowledge through continuing education in the areas of: Dental Implants, Short Term Orthodontics, Dental and Therapeutic lasers, Dental Sleep Medicine are more.
Dr. Alptekin currently resides in Shrewsbury, MA with his wife, five children, and his cat.
