Biography

Dr. Brennan received his DMD from Tufts Dental School and has spent the last 32 years practicing dentistry in Portland, Maine while devoting energies to geriatrics research and teaching. Finding reasonable solutions to senior oral health problems fuels his passions. Harvard University has recognized his postdoctoral accomplishments in public health with the Dr. James Dunning Award for excellence in teaching and biomedical research.

In 1961, when I was eight years old, my parents brought me to the University of Maine, in Orono, to listen to President John F. Kennedy remind our country “that it is not enough for a great nation to add new years to life; it is equally important that our objective is to add life to those years”. I have never forgotten these words.

My greatest passion is my family; married to Susan for 34 years with two wonderful children, Tom, a mechanical engineer, and Kathleen, a family practice physician.

Since Graduating from Tufts Dental School in 1981, I have spent the past thirty two years practicing dentistry in Portland, Maine while devoting energies to geriatric research and teaching (see Curriculum Vitae). Finding reasonable solutions to senior oral health problems fuels my enthusiasm for research.

This passion for senior health care has led me to complete a two year Geriatric Research Fellowship Program at Harvard University, a Fellowship in Geriatric and Palliative Care at Mt Sinai in New York, to travel to Haiti to assess senior oral health needs, and to speak at the ASA Conference, in Washington D.C, addressing the oral health needs of seniors in the US.

Harvard University recognized my postdoctoral accomplishments in public health with the Dr. James Dunning Award for excellence in teaching and biomedical research.

My future professional goals include expanding my role in Geriatric Education in Maine and Nationally. I will also continue to teach at Harvard University and to Co- Direct the Harvard Geriatric Dental Fellowship Program.
