A Message from Dr. Rodney O'Connor

Dr. Rodney O'ConnorI feel privileged to work in the healthcare field and believe oral health is paramount to your overall health. My team and I strive to lessen anxiety with light banter and levity. I treat my patients with respect, integrity and compassion, which I believe everyone deserves. Because of this, our patients trust my staff and me. Your trust is something we never want to take for granted.

Education and Continuing Education 

  • Undergraduate degree – Kentucky State University
  • Doctorate of Dental Medicine – University of Kentucky College of Dentistry
  • Post-graduate studies – Eastman Dental Center

I enjoy interacting with dental and medical specialists in my quest to provide the best help for my patients. If there is something I don’t know, I look it up. I like to be informed and be able to pass knowledge onto my patients.

As a member of the Academy of General Dentistry, I feel it is imperative that I take a minimum of 60 hours of continuing education courses within a three-year period. I attend lectures, webinars, and hands-on participation courses.

A Dental Practice Specializing in Laser Dentistry

With more than 30 years of experience in practicing cutting-edge, compassionate dentistry, Dr. Rodney O’Connor and our team would like to welcome you to R.E. O’Connor, DMD Laser Dentistry, which serves the Rochester, Gates, and Chili, NY communities. Our office is set up to provide comprehensive dentistry that encompasses the diagnosis and treatment of oral structures and their impact on the body. It is our purpose to ensure our patients enjoy a healthy mouth and a healthy body upon completion of treatment.

"I enjoy translating a patient's wants and needs esthetically, with custom wax-ups.  This is a way that helps achieve proper contours, especially when it comes to what we want the front teeth to look like."

As a specialist in laser dentistry, Dr. O’Connor is able to repair cavities without the need for anesthetic, treat cold and canker sores, and provide non-invasive periodontal treatment. We also offer a wide array of cosmetic dental procedures, sleep apnea and snoring treatment.  "There is a laser setting that I found to be very thorough in removing resistant stains within natural teeth, also."

We look forward to having you as a patient! For more information regarding our practice, or to schedule an appointment with Dr. O’Connor, please feel free to contact our Rochester dental office.
