Meet Dr. Pugliese

Dr. Pugliese

Eric Pugliese, DMD

Dr. Pugliese is a Lehigh Valley native-born and raised in Mt. Bethel, PA.

He received his Bachelor’s Degree in Biology from West Chester University, and completed dental school from Temple University’s Kornberg School of Dentistry where he received his DMD (Doctor of Dental Medicine). He continues his educations by attending lectures and courses conducted by some of the leading dental experts in the country.

Dr. Pugliese chose to stay in the Lehigh Valley area because he wants to be part of and contribute to the community that he loves. He chose to work at Tencza & Pugliese Dental because he wanted to be part of a talented team that feels like a group of friends working together.

When asked why he went into dentistry, he explained…”Dentistry is a combination of science, engineering, and art. So I was drawn to it. I knew it’s what I wanted to do from a young age.” What does he like most about dentistry? “Getting patients out of pain and improving their smiles.”

When he’s not working, he likes to golf, exercise, play tennis, and spend time with his family. He’s a trivia buff and keeps us entertained with his knowledge.
