Dr. Altieri was born and raised in Connecticut and lived there with his family until 1992. Before dental school Dr. Altieri attended the University of Bridgeport and received a bachelor’s degree in mechanical engineering. He worked at Sikorsky Aircraft for 11 years before he decided to change career paths and pursue dentistry. He later graduated from the University of Connecticut with a Doctor of Medical Dentistry degree. When the opportunity arose, he bought a practice and moved his family to Maine and has been a resident of the Kennebunk area ever since. He is a member of the American Dental Association, the Maine Dental Association, the Dental Organization for Conscious Sedation and the Las Vegas Institute for Advanced Dental Studies. He also went through rigorous training for both oral and IV sedation.
In his free time, he loves to be outdoors, and it is not uncommon to see him running, biking, hiking, kayaking, or cross-country skiing. He recently got back into bee keeping and is looking forward to collecting his own honey! Dr. Altieri’s newest hobby is learning how to use a ham radio.
