Jon J. Wendell, DDS

University of New Hampshire - 1984 - BS Biochemistry
University of North Carolina Dental School - 1988 - DDS

Dr. Wendell is a practicing pediatric dentist.  He completed his undergraduate studies at the University of New Hampshire and obtained his dental degree from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill.  Upon finishing his pediatric dental program at Boston Children's Hospital in 1990, Dr. Wendell worked full-time for Boston Children's Hospital and then Harvard Community Health Plan until 1992 when he purchased a pediatric dental practice in Portsmouth, New Hampshire.

Since then the practice has grown from a solo practice into a multi-specialty group practice with three pediatric dentists, an orthodontist and a general dentist.

While Dr. Wendell's initial interest was in assisting dentists in transitioning their practices, he has since successfully applied his experience and practice transition expertise to medical professionals in a variety of fields.

Dr. Wendell continues to practice dentistry on a part-time basis, while Attorney Larkin devotes his full time to assisting dentists with their transition needs.
