Dr. Jim Heller has been a practicing dentist for 35 years. He received his Bachelor of Arts (BA) degree from Bowdoin College in 1971, and his Doctor of Medical Dentistry (DMD) from the University of Pennsylvania in 1975.

Upon graduation, he served on active duty in the United States Navy Dental Corps from 1975-1977, stationed at the Naval Submarine Base in Groton, Connecticut. During his two years in the Navy, Dr. Heller had the opportunity to care for the wide variety of the dental needs of our active duty personnel. In addition, he was selected to attend several advanced education courses at the Naval Hospital in Bethesda, Maryland.

Heller Dental was recommended by a friend after I moved to the area. I've honestly never had such a comprehensive dental exam! Dr. Heller and team were not only thorough, but friendly, respectful, informative, interested, and caring. I'm impressed with the entire office and am thrilled that I am under the care of a dentist who I feel I can trust to *honestly* guide me to the right care and decisions for the best possible outcomes.

I have been a patient of Jim Heller's for 30+ years. On my first visit back in the early 80’s I was impressed with the way Jim Heller and his staff treated me as a patient. To this day they continue to treat me like I am part of their family and genuinely care about me personally while providing the highest level of dental care. If you want state of the art dental care provided by a great group of people there is no better place.
