About

Bio

After more than two decades in the practice of the art and science of modern dentistry, Dr. Bobbitt is as passionate and enthusiastic as he was as a student. His extensive background in mathematics, chemistry, woodworking, carpentry and art complement his solid dental education and provide a sound foundation for a practice that emphasizes the understanding of how his patients are affected by dental materials. His practice focuses on the need to engineer a “lifetime approach” to personal dental care. His primary focus is to help his patients understand, control and achieve their own dental goals by Creating Plans for a Lifetime of Smiles™. Dr. Bobbitt lives in Nashua with his wife and son. He is an active volunteer with the Boy Scouts of America and donates much to the needy through Donated Dental Services and the NH Dental Society.
