Meet Dr. Paul Wonsavage
One of our Hanover dentists providing amazing and life-changing dentistry.
‘‘The best part of my job is getting to know my patients and providing unique solutions to help them overcome their barriers, whether it’s a new smile or getting out of pain.”
Dr. Wonsavage decided to become part of the Lyme Road Dental team to become more actively engaged in the health of his patients.
Personally, he really enjoys the blend of small-town life, intellectual engagement, and spectacular outdoor opportunities that the Hanover area offers.
His commitment to his patients starts with continuing education to ensure he serves everyone with the latest techniques and services.
Before becoming a Hanover dentist, Dr. Wonsavage grew up in the northwest and went to high school at Burke Mountain Ski Academy. He became an avid alpine skier, having competed at elite national levels. He also raced bicycles for a number of years. His son, Max, is also an alpine skier.
What do you do in your spare time?
“I love fly fishing, standup paddle boarding, and I continue to alpine ski. I also love spending time with my family, my rescue dog, and traveling.”
Who is your hero?
“Yvon Chouinard because he started a business (Patagonia) that he was passionate about, which gives back to the environment and he treats his employees very well.”
What lessons by mom do you still live by?
“I’ve learned two very important lessons from my Mom:
- I thought I made a mistake once, but I was wrong!
- Only break one law at a time.”
If you were ice cream, what flavor would you be?
“Pistachio because I’m a nut!”
Dr. Wonsavage’s passion for dentistry comes from his gift of being good with his hands and his love for science. Those two factors made it an easy decision to pursue a career in dentistry.
He opened a private practice in Wilton, ME and moved to Hanover to join the Lyme Road Dental team, which he sees as the perfect place to support the healthy-lifestyle he loves and wants to help his patients achieve.
Continuing Education Commitment
As an advocate for continuing education, Dr. Wonsavage continues to exceed well beyond the minimum standards to provide the best dentistry for his patients.
His commitment is shown in gaining his Mastership from the AGD and continuing to be part of this prestigious institution by reviewing their manuscripts.
‘‘Your simple act of kindness and generosity has had a profound impact on our lives. Thank you for all that you do.’’
