Dr. Pierre Vigneault

Dr. Pierre Vigneault, as a General Dentist, was a pioneer in the health concern of mercury toxicity. His office has been mercury-free since 1983.

As a member of DOCS (Doctor of Conscious Sedation), Pierre studied in the States to open a window of opportunity to provide a safe, relaxed experience to patients who can correct years of embarrassing problems in one visit, with one pill.  He makes every effort that this same level of care is trained in all the staff and every patient can experience kind, caring treatment.

From Dr. Vigneault:

I am proud to serve patients in our community. Through continuing education and state-of-the-art equipment, my staff and I are able to offer the high level of care you would want in your family dental clinic . It makes my day when I can greet my patients with a warm welcome and ask them for their latest joke.   That is my commitment to a fun anxiety free office.

Dr Vigneault’s visit to Costa Rica included a visit to an animal sanctuary where he befriended a sloth.  Known for their slow behavior, the sloth’s fur could be green from moss growing on their back.

We know Dr Vigneault is a calm guy but he made this sloth even calmer.

Very huggable, this little guy clings on like he was attached to a tree.
