Dr. Peter Laliberte, of Smile Solutions, to retire after more than 40 years

Dr. Peter B. Laliberte, of Smile Solutions, with offices in Waterville and Winthrop, plans to transition from chair side to consultant in the coming weeks.

More than 40 years ago, after graduating from Tufts University School of Dental Medicine with a Doctor of Medicine in Dentistry and completing the general practice specialty program at Eastman Dental Center, Laliberte opened Esthetic and Reconstructive Dentistry at 141 Silver St., Waterville, with one employee. As the patient-base expanded, he relocated in 1984 to the historical Stanley Marr building, circa 1925, which has undergone numerous renovations and expansions. Subsequent to the relocation, Laliberte has partnered with three other dentists: Dr. Jay Wietecha in 2001, Dr. Peter Vayanos in 2010 and Dr. Joseph Dumont in 2017 and has served as a mentor to his colleagues. An additional location under the name Cosmetic and General Dentistry was established 10 years ago in Winthrop. The businesses merged as Smile Solutions LLC last year and employs more than 20 staff members.
