Dr. Robert Semco,


Dr. Rob attended Tufts University for Dental School, where he graduated first in his class. He received his training in Orthodontics at the Mayo Clinic, which accepts only one resident per year. He continues to study innovative techniques in orthodontics with the same passion as he did in school. When he's not in the office, Rob likes to train his pet hawk, read a good book or go out to dinner with his family.
