Dentist-Stephen McGarr


Stephen McGarr – 194 High St Tel: 465-5358  462-8025.  He is known as the “Singing Dentist”.  The second you are laid down in the chair he will hum all the AM favorites!

I remember having to go to him for a filling.  I was probably 8 years old.  I had a filling prior to this appointment and had the gas.  Those of you who had the gas know what I am talking about.  If I did LSD I would imaging it would be a similiar experience.   Well on this day I wanted nothing to do with fillings and ran out of the office like a school girl screaming.  Later I received the needle and tolerated that better!  Dr Stephen McGarr is a  dentist to remember.

  5. I went to both Dr. McGarr and Dr. Gerald Hirsch before relocating to South Florida in 1991. Both were excellent.

  6. Did anyone else see Dr . Malcolm Malloy? He operated his practice out of a big old brick house on High Street in the 1960s and ’70s. He was a good dentist, and very gentle.
