Dr. Soni grew up in Needham, MA, and previously worked in private practices in both Massachusetts and New Hampshire.

Dr. Soni was in his second year of dental school and starting to work with real patients when he realized that it was creating relationships with his patients that made all the art and science of dentistry come alive. That realization has been his philosophy throughout his years of practice: “Caring about the patient is the most important aspect, as all else falls into place thereafter.” His heartfelt caring, combined with his skillful gentle hands, helps give his patients the healthy and confident smiles they want for themselves.

He is a member of the American Dental Association, Massachusetts Dental Society, the Academy of General Dentistry, and is a SPEAR Study Club Member. He is an avid basketball fan and roots for the hometown Boston Celtics. In his spare time he enjoys playing basketball, photography, gardening and traveling.
