Conway Family Dental opened in August, 2010 after buying the practice of David A. Sporcic, DMD, who had operated at this location on Washington Street for more than 36 years and had established a reputation for having the most skilled and friendly oral care office in the Mount Washington Valley.  It is a reputation that we work to uphold every day.

Meet the staff:
Dr. Steven Wehrli, D.D.S.
"Higher quality and easier treatments are my goal for each patient"

Dr. Steve Wehrli has practiced patient-focused dentistry since graduating from the University of Nebraska College of Dentistry in 1974. He lived and practiced in Goffstown, New Hampshire for more than 25 years before moving to Conway to enjoy the outdoors and local quality of life.

His professional passion is to learn the newest dental technologies in a manner that positively impacts patient health, aesthetics and well being in a cost efficient and effective manner.

He is an avid hiker, biker and skier, a recreational gardener and an occasional motorcyclist who can often be found on the trails, chair lifts, rivers and back roads of the Mount Washington Valley.

Dr. Wehrli's family includes his son Nate, who is veterinarian in the Washington DC area, his daughter Annie, who splits her time between Conway and Boston while working toward her graduate degree, and another daughter Emily, who lives in Conway and is studying microbiology at UNH.

Kathy Curtis
Dental Assistant
"Making sure each patient feels comfortable during their visit and after they leave is my primary goal."

Kathy has 8 years of professional dental assisting experience. She enjoys working with Dr. Wehrli and the patients in this friendly and comfortable atmosphere. Outside of work, she enjoys time spent with dogs, Sara and Jethro, and cats, Jake and Amykins. She is most happy organizing the garage and rearranging furniture, a throw back from her many years in retail display design sales at the original Penguin in North Conway, NH. A close second is spending time getting fresh air and exercise outdoors.
