About Nashoba Valley Dental

A Full-Service, Progressive Dental Practice

Nashoba Valley Dental was founded on the idea that everyone should have a smile they love. Our services include anything from patching a tooth to a complete smile makeover – and everything in between. In taking over this dental practice that has served as a staple in the community for years, Dr. Matthew Annese stayed in line with the previous practice owner’s philosophy of patient education and involvement. Add that to a vast selection of services and use of the latest innovations in dental technology, and we help patients get the smile they always wanted in the way that works best for them.

Our dental professionals are driven by a commitment to deliver the highest-quality dental work in a setting that is familiar and relaxed. We never push patients to get treatment they aren’t comfortable with, and if the ideal solution doesn’t work with their budget, we find an alternative that produces results that are just as desirable. Dr. Annese and our staff have created a culture that is energetic, yet laid back, and proactive, yet resourceful. We want everyone coming into our office to feel at ease, which is why, on top of exceptional dental care, we offer comforts such as TV’s for entertainment and a coffee station for our patients to enjoy while waiting they wait. Your peace of mind is our priority.

About Dr. Annese

Dr. Annese grew up in nearby Billerica, Massachusetts. Having spent his summers working construction, he was able to dedicate numerous hours to the rebuilding effort of New Orleans after Hurricane Katrina. These experiences made him realize that he truly enjoyed helping those in need. When exploring professions, he searched for a field where he could have a direct impact on people. Dentistry called to him as he realized how much a confident smile could change someone’s life.

Since graduating from Boston University School of Dental Medicine, Dr. Annese retains faculty status at Boston University and Tufts School of Dental Medicine. Every year he surpasses the required education hours to ensure he stays abreast of the latest technologies and techniques. He also prefers to work closely with patients when evaluating their needs, always giving them a voice in their treatment plan and aiming to deliver services as quickly and comfortably as possible.

Outside of the office, Dr. Annese enjoys spending time with his wife, Allison, and family. He especially enjoys watching his little guy, Bennett, grow up way too fast. He stays active with hockey, exercise, water sports, and skiing – but also enjoys putting calories back on with new restaurants, wine and craft beer.
