Dr. Wolfert is proud of the community practice he has built in Weymouth since taking over for Dr. Armen Nalband in 1991. He has been able to continue relationships with many of Dr. Nalband’s original patients as evidenced by the number of patients who have become part of his “Toothboss Hall of Fame”. During this time Rick has earned a reputation for not only being a clinically exceptional dentist, but also one whom his patients trust and feel comfortable with.
“I make it my top priority to spend the proper time and give the right attention to developing a custom treatment plan that fits the exact needs of each one of my patients,” says Dr. Wolfert “That time and effort spent at the beginning, along with not compromising on any part of our treatment, pays off in the final results.”
Rick graduated from Tufts School of Dental Medicine in 1981 after receiving his undergraduate degree from the University of Vermont. During his tour on the Aircraft Carrier Midway (CV-41), he was deemed the “Toothboss”, a nickname that has followed him since he left active service. He was deployed with the Massachusetts Army National Guard to Iraq in 2004 in support of Operation Enduring Freedom as a dentist and the unit’s Triage Officer. He retired from military service in February 2015 with more than 33 years of service.
In 1988, Rick began his private practice career in Milton. He then worked in Norwell before coming to Weymouth in 1991. He is a fellow of the Academy of General Dentistry and has published in the Journal of Prosthetic Dentistry.
