Meet the Doctors

Dr. Kathleen Poleon graduated in 2003 from SUNY Buffalo School of Dental Medicine after receiving degrees from SUNY Geneseo, Rochester Institute of Technology, and the University of Rochester.  Her background in Psychology and Human Resource Development uniquely helps with the human side of dentistry and the degree in Biology helps with the clinical/medical side.  After dental school, Dr. Poleon completed a General Practice Residency at the Millard Fillmore Gates and Buffalo General hospitals in Buffalo, NY.  She then spent a year working as an attending dentist teaching newly graduated dentists during their residencies.
Dr. Thomas Miller also graduated from SUNY Buffalo School of Dental Medicine in 2005 after graduating from the University of Rochester. He completed his General Practice Residency at Millard Fillmore Hospital in 2006 and worked for a year in Buffalo. Dr. Miller worked at his own office in Brighton, NY from 2007 until 2021, when he came to practice here in Newark with Drs. Poleon and Boyd.
Dr. Ronald Boyd has been practicing general dentistry in Newark for 41 years.  Dr. Boyd earned a Bachelor of Science degree from St. Bonaventure University in 1974 and his DDS from SUNY Buffalo School of Dental Medicine in 1978.  He completed a General Practice Residency at Rochester General Hospital in 1979. Currently, Dr. Boyd is a Clinical Assistant Professor (part-time) in the Department of Restorative Dentistry at SUNY Buffalo School of Dental Medicine.
