Meet Eric J. Pier, DDS

Eric J. Pier, DDSDr. Eric Pier was born & raised in Rockland & 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.

Dr. Pier is proud to be a third-generation dentist, following in his father’s & grandfather’s footsteps.

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, California; was the ship dentist for two years on the USS Emory S. Land homeported in Guam; & served another two years at Naval Hospital Rota Spain.

In 2018, while serving on the USS Emory S. Land, Dr. Pier met his now husband Vincent in Hawaii. They were married in October 2020 at the Rockland Congregational Church. They are excited to make their home in Rockport & become members of the MidCoast Maine community. They look forward to exploring Maine, skiing at Sugarloaf, spending time with family & friends on Chickawaukie Pond & trying every restaurant in the area.
