Samuel Shames DMD, MAGD, FACD is an Associate Clinical Professor and Director of Practice Management in the department of Comprehensive Care. Dr Shames graduated from TUSDM in 1975 and after residency at Wilmington Medical Center opened a practice on Newbury St in Boston. Noting the desire for convenience by patients, he developed a multi-specialty practice model and began to establish multi-specialty practices that were marketed under the name Gentle Dental Partners of New England. These practices were well received by the public and after growing to over 30 practices, began expansion into New Hampshire, Connecticut, Rhode Island, and Maine.

Dr. Shames has attained lifetime member status in both the ADA and AGD.
