Tyler grew up in North Kingstown, Rhode Island. After completing high school at Bishop Hendricken he attended the University of Rhode Island obtaining his Bachelors degree in Biological Sciences. Throughout his four years at URI he was a member of the lacrosse team. During one of his practices he chipped his tooth in half. This brought him to the wonderful staff at Exquisite Smiles for repair. After this day he became very interested in the field of dentistry and decided to pursue his passion. This dream led him to attending dental school in Canada. More specifically Halifax, Nova Scotia where he completed his Doctor of Dental Surgery degree at Dalhousie University in May 2019. The Faculty of Dentistry at Dalhousie is renowned for teaching clinical hand skills from day one. Tyler is interested in all aspects of dentistry and will continue to learn more about modern dental technology. Outside of dentistry, Tyler enjoys paddle boarding, going to the beach, hiking, going to the gym and spending time with his girlfriend, Emily and their dog, Henry.
