Meet Eric J. Pier, DDS

Dr. Eric Pier was born and raised in Rockland, Maine and earned his B.S. in Chemistry at Bates College. While completing his thesis in Inorganic Chemistry, Dr. Pier discovered that scientific research was not the path he wanted to pursue after all. His desire to work with and help people more directly led him to consider the field of dentistry and he never looked back. Dr. Pier is proud to be a third-generation dentist, following in his father’s and grandfather’s footsteps. 

While completing his final pre-requisites for dental school, Dr. Pier worked as a research assistant at the Tufts University Molecular Oncology Research Institute for two years, followed by one year as a dental assistant at Mount Pleasant Dental Care. He earned his Doctor of Dental Surgery degree at New York University College of Dentistry (NYUCD) in 2016 and received the Ethics Award from the New York Academy of Dentistry in recognition of exemplary commitment to the goals, values and ideals of professional ethics. 

Dr. Pier was also awarded the US Navy Health Professions Scholarship Program and was commissioned in February 2012. Following graduation from NYUCD, he served on active duty for five years. During this time, he completed his General Practice Residency at Naval Hospital Camp Pendleton, was the ship dentist for two years on the USS Emory S. Land homeported in Guam, and served another two years at Naval Hospital Rota Spain. 

While serving on the USS Emory S Land, Dr. Pier met his now husband Vincent in Hawaii in 2018. They were married in October 2020 at the Rockland Congregational Church. They are happy to have made their home in Rockport and are proud to be members of the MidCoast Maine community. They enjoy traveling, skiing at Sugarloaf, spending time with family and friends on Chickawaukie Pond, and visiting their favorite local restaurants. 

Dr. Pier greatly enjoys working alongside his father, Dr. Laliberte, Dr. Stevens and the rest of the team at Mount Pleasant Dental Wellness. He is committed to excellence and providing his patients with comfortable, individualized, comprehensive dental care.
