Dr. Michael Coppe

Michael R. Coppe, DMD

Dr. Michael R. Coppe is passionate about pediatric dentistry. "When I was in dental school, I did an extensive study in Sweden; I was interested in public health, and I visited clinics all over the country. The kids were great! Even if I didn’t know their language, I learned I could communicate with them with no trouble.”

Since he was 11 or 12, there was never any question what kind of dentistry Dr. Coppe would practice – pediatrics because he liked the clientele.

Dr. Coppe received his undergraduate degree from Fordham University and was awarded his Doctor of Dental Medicine from Harvard University. Along with his post-graduate training in Pediatric Dentistry from Children's Hospital in Boston and Harvard School of Dental Medicine, he also earned his Doctor of Medical Science Degree in Oral Biology from Harvard University.

Many who know Dr. Coppe – patients and friends alike – know his passion for history, especially 18th century, local history. He was a Colonial reenactor for a long time, and several years ago, he joined the British Tenth Regiment of Foot to reenact the April 19th event on the Lexington Green as a Redcoat. Dr. Coppe has a number of other hobbies including sailing and model trains.

If he could offer dental advice to parents or to patients, Dr. Coppe would say, "Take care of your teeth. Remember to floss and brush and visit us twice a year.”
