John Frachella: Dentist
Say the word "dentist" and a lot of things come to mind. White smock. Little mirror on a stick. Floss. How about adrenaline junkie! When he's not surfing, mountain biking, kayaking, skiing or skateboarding, Dr. John Frachella (Dr. John) can be found at Bluefish Dental. In his spare time, he designs whitewater kayaks, mountain bikes and is working on his ultimate surfboard layout.
Prior to his entrance at Bluefish Dental, he provided dental care in a public health clinic in Bangor, Maine. Within this clinic, Dr. John worked exclusively with underserved children providing dental care for more than 30 years. His passion has been to help kids and parents overcome their fear of having dental work done, something he sees as a privilege.
To Bluefish Dental he adds energy, compassion and an unquenchable hunger for knowledge. While not treating patients at Bluefish Dental, Dr. John is pioneering an effort to open several not-for-profit dental clinics (Asher Clinics) to serve the rural communities of Eastern Oregon.
We are proud to have him as a part of our team.
