Dr. Lawrence W. Life
I feel so fortunate to be a dentist today.  Treating patients over the last 30 years has been a very exciting and fulfilling time.  The combination of research and technological advances has led to tremendous improvements in diagnosis and treatment.  Beautiful, natural, and durable dentistry can now be delivered with ease, speed, and comfort.  It allows us time to develop trusting, personal relationships with our patients.

When not continuing my dental education with many of the world's leading practitioners and lecturers I like to spend time with my family.  I enjoy skiing, kiteboarding, mountain biking, playing hockey, golfing, racket sports, reading and woodworking.

Dr Joseph Commisso Jr.
I started practicing dentistry in 1993.  Since that time, there have been incredible changes.  The recent advances in dentistry have made this an amazing time to be a dentist and a patient.  Not only can someone be treated comfortably, but also, faster than ever.  I look forward to future advances in dentistry that continually improve treatment.

Dr. Jennifer G. Walsh
I have been practicing dentistry since 1995.  I first joined Meadow Place Dental on a part-time basis in 2005.  As my three children have all become school-age, I have transitioned to be a full-time partner.  Dentistry is such a rewarding profession.  I feel blessed each day to be a part of our caring, state-of-the-art practice.  And I feel truly privileged when our patients entrust me with their esthetic and funtional dental care.  General Dentistry is just perfect for me due to the variety it affords, including the treatment of pediatric patients.  When free from balancing my career and family, I enjoy reading, exercising, and traveling.
