Meet Dr. Michael Wolter
My profession gives me the opportunity to use my skills to help improve dental function and treat dental disease, thereby improving the quality of life of my patients. Being able to help my patients, people I have come to know and care about, and to develop relationships with fascinating individuals, are what make me love my work. Not only do I get to make their lives better, but along the way I have conversations that open new worlds to me. I learn a lot from my patients, which helps to better me as an individual and as a dentist.
I am particularly fulfilled when I am able to help someone smile with confidence and ease; someone who hasn’t been able to do so before. Whether they haven’t had access to gentle, effective dental care, or have dental-related anxiety, when I am able to assist them move into a new phase of their life, I feel rewarded. One of the services I feel most strongly about is being able to relieve a patient’s pain. Dental issues can cause horrible pain and discomfort, and when I am able to alleviate that, and the person can breathe freely again, going about their regular daily routine without that distraction, I know I’ve done well.
Education and Continuing Education
- Bachelor of Science, chemistry, Roanoke College
- Doctorate of Dental Surgery, Virginia Commonwealth University
I am always open to continuing education opportunities, wherever and whenever they arise. Dentistry and the oral healthcare field change on an almost daily basis, and I am excited to offer my patients the opportunity to experience the most up-to-date technologies and treatment techniques available. They deserve nothing less than the best, so I stay on the leading edge of dental knowledge through participation in conferences, lectures, seminars, and other offerings.
- American Dental Association
- Pennsylvania Dental Association
- Cumberland Valley Dental Society
I am a native of Roanoke, VA and moved to Greencastle, PA in 2009. My wife Anne is a middle school English teacher and we have a son, Bradley, who was born in November of 2010, and welcomed a daughter, Charlotte, who was born in April of 2015. My favorite times are those spent with my family, but I also enjoy playing the piano or a good volleyball game, taking on home improvement projects, and following the Miami Dolphins.
As a dentist, I feel compelled to share my knowledge and skills with our community, help those less fortunate, and educate community members about dental health.
