Biography

Dr. Greene has been practicing oral surgery in the Nashua area since 1986 and has been placing dental implants since 1984. He received his undergraduate degree in biomedical engineering with honors from the University of Pennsylvania. After graduating he worked as an engineer for an orthopedic implant company helping develop and test several designs. While there he learned a great deal about implants, but desired to pursue his passion for becoming a surgeon. He then attended Harvard School of Dental Medicine and graduated cum laude in 1982. After dental school he went on to complete a four-year residency in oral and maxillofacial surgery at Parkland Memorial Hospital/University of Texas Southwestern Medical School in Dallas, Texas, which included a year of training in anesthesiology. While there he focused on orthognathic (reconstructive) jaw surgery and dental implants, and became one of the first to be Branemark certified in 1985.
