After 44 years at North Shore & Brookline Endodontics, Dr. Peter A. Morgan retired from the practice of endodontics at the end of August, 2019. His presence at our practice will be missed, but his principles of quality patient care and collaborative referral relationships will continue as hallmarks of our practice.
Dr. Morgan began his career as a Captain in the U.S. Army Dental Corps after graduating from the University of Pittsburgh School of Dental Medicine. During this time, he served at Womack Army Hospital in Fort Bragg, NC and Walter Reed Army Medical Center in Washington, DC. Dr. Morgan later completed his endodontic specialty training at Boston University School of Dental Medicine, earning a Master of Science in Dentistry.
Some of Dr. Morgan’s many professional achievements include being named a Diplomate of the American Board of Endodontics in 1985, and serving as president of the North Shore Dental Society and the Massachusetts Association of Endodontics. He also served as Associate Clinical Professor at Boston University Goldman School of Dental Medicine. Dr. Morgan served three terms on the Board of Trustees of the American Association of Endodontics, and on the AAE Committee on Endodontic Software and as Chair of the Annual Session Planning Committee. More recently, he served a 2-year term as President of the AAE Foundation for Endodontics.
As part of his work with the AAE Foundation for Endodontics, he was instrumental in developing and securing funding for the Outreach To Care Program. This program provides patients at clinics in underserved areas with access to endodontic treatment to save teeth that might otherwise be extracted. By establishing these Outreach Projects, the Foundation for Endodontics fulfills its mission to provide care to underserved populations,domestically and abroad, and promote public awareness of the value of saving natural teeth.
“Dr. Morgan served the specialty of endodontics by offering his time to participate in the AAE Foundation. The non-profit foundation is dedicated towards the continued strength of the endodontic profession and to preserve the endodontic specialty. Dr. Morgan looked beyond his self interests and beyond his private practices to help the general profession which will be impacted in a positive way for many years to come.” Jim Gaitan, Co-Founder of Dentalfone
Dr. Morgan has brought a passion for endodontic technology to North Shore & Brookline Endodontics, embracing new therapies and technologies to improve both comfort and outcomes for our patients. At a recent function celebrating his retirement, he said, “I will miss the excitement that is coming with the constant evolution of technology and treatment techniques in endodontics. Based on the history of our practice, I am sure it will be in the vanguard of appropriate application of these new technologies, resulting in even better results for patients and more natural teeth preserved.”
Dr. Morgan and his wife Jessie Morgan who is an established contemporary artist, live and work on the North Shore of Boston where they enjoy boating and spending time with their grandchildren.
Please join the doctors and staff members of North Shore & Brookline Endodontics in extending warmest retirement wishes to our senior partner, mentor and friend, Dr. Peter A. Morgan.
