About Us

At our practice, our team keeps up with the latest techniques and developments in dentistry through continuing education. We offer digital x-rays and imaging throughout the office, as well as some of the newest whitening treatments and orthodontic techniques, like Invisalign. The difference in our practice is that the focus always remains on patient comfort and treatment. Patients are happy to find that we provide almost all treatments on site, allowing for a more streamlined approach to their care. This is what sets us apart from the rest and this is why we encourage you to visit our practice if you are looking for a dentist in our area.

Dr. Sparks

Dr. Sparks graduated from Tufts University School of Dental Medicine in 1973 and then attended a General Dentistry Residency in the United States Army, after which he served two additional years at Ft. Leavenworth, Kansas, in the Dental Corps. He chose to settle in the small nearby town of Litchfield, New Hampshire in 1976 to start a dental practice, raise a family of four and to become involved in the community.

In 1988, he started a satellite dental practice in Pine Island Plaza in Manchester, bringing the New England Community values of trust, care, experience and service to others.

This philosophy and the merger of his two practices have grown into the present, New Hampshire Family Dentistry. We are here to serve your urgent and long-term dental needs and desires in an individual way that is in harmony with your total life.

Dr. Sparks and Dr. Mandera are always accepting new patients and look forward to caring for your oral health. Call us today at (603) 625-­1877 for your appointment!
