Meet Dr. Tim Ahern

My profession is my passion. I have such respect for the field of dentistry and its importance to public health. That passion is centered on the patient experience: I am most excited to exceed patient expectations in comfort and results, with each procedure and every interaction.

I have practiced dentistry since 2017; I chose the oral healthcare field because of my father, Dr. John, who has practiced since 1985. Even at a young age, I could sense how impactful he was on the southern New Hampshire community where my brothers and I grew up.

Dentistry allows for daily clinical care, mental and physical problem solving, and rewarding results that help people; these realities made the choice to become a dentist an easy one for me.

That said, the most rewarding aspect of my career is the relationships I build with families in this community. I love getting to know each patient as an individual: developing a trusting bond and appreciating how each conversation enriches my life.

Education and Professional Affiliations

I attended the College of the Holy Cross, in Worcester, Massachusetts, where I received my Bachelor of Science in biology. After graduating, I was accepted at Tufts University School of Dental Medicine, where I was awarded my Doctorate of Dental Medicine.

Dentistry is constantly changing and adapting to better materials, faster methods, and more comfortable techniques. We at Abenaki Dental Care are committed to following the trends that provide our patients with the best experience and results.

I am committed to constantly seeking to broaden and strengthen my capabilities. Through continuing education (CE) — seminars, meetings, lectures, and online courses — I learn from the leaders in the field.

I have completed advanced, postdoctorate training and am now a provider of Invisalign® clear aligners, as well as CEREC® single-visit restorations. Annually, I complete many hours of continuing education courses and am a member of CEREC Doctors and Invisalign.

Beyond the Practice

I grew up in Londonderry and now reside in Dover with my wife, Katie, and our daughter, Daphne. Time with them, as well as my father, Dr. John, and mother, Karen, and my brothers, sister-in-law, and nieces, is a priority when I’m not at the office.

I enjoy the beach, especially with family and friends, grilling year-round (I’m passionate about cooking!), hiking, and time on the golf course.

As a proud New Hampshire native, it is in my fabric to help my community grow. It is beyond important to me that I am an active member of the southern New Hampshire area, to promote and support local businesses and education.
