Thank you for all your care and exceptional treatment over the past year. My dental implants have given me a beautiful smile and the confidence to eat whatever I desire. - Christine P. , N.Y.C., N.Y.

Meet Dr. Pechter

Dr. Pechter was born in New York City in 1951. Pechter Baking Company was the family business that baked fresh bread, rolls, bagels, and cakes that were distributed throughout the greater New York, New Jersey area. Dr. Pechter grew up with his three brothers in Roslyn, Long Island. He received his Bachelor of Arts degree from Dartmouth College, in 1973. He then attended Tufts University School of Dental Medicine, earning his D.M.D. in 1976.
Following dental school, Dr. Pechter completed a one - year general practice residency program at Jamaica Hospital, in Jamaica (Queens), New York.

Finding his calling in the field of periodontology, Dr. Pechter went on to complete the specialty program at Boston University Goldman School of Graduate Dentistry, where he was awarded his Certificate of Advanced Graduate Study in Periodontology in 1979. He has been actively engaged in private practice in Palm Beach County, Florida, since that time, specializing in periodontics and dental implant surgery.

Dr. Pechter has been a volunteer at the Caridad Health Clinic, in Boynton Beach, Florida. There, he and other dentists donate their services to provide dental care to migrant farm workers and their families.

Dr. Pechter is an avid swimmer and bicyclist. His wife Madeline created all of the beautiful needlepoint canvases that are displayed throughout the office. They have two grown sons, Wyatt and Nelson. Some of Wyatt's early artwork can also be seen decorating the office walls.

Hello, my name is Lauri. I am the office manager for Dr. Pechter. I am also a Registered Dental Hygienist. My clinical experience as a Dental Hygienist spans 25 years and provides me with the knowledge to effectively communicate with our patients and our referring dentists.
I have been a part of Dr. Pechter's team since 2007. Working with Dr. Pechter, I am very fortunate to have the opportunity to present the finest in periodontal therapy to our patients to help them achieve their ultimate dental health. My ability to work with a professional team that offers the highest quality of treatment, caring for and about our patients, and providing for their comfort, are values which are paramount to me.
On a personal note, I love to cook, so exercise is a must in my life, running in particular. I am a second generation Floridian, and consider myself a water person. I have one adult daughter, and I am married to a brilliant man. We love to travel and explore the world.


Hi, my name is Therese. I have been a Certified Dental Assistant since the early 1980's. I started my career in general dentistry. From there, I have had the pleasure of expanding my knowledge in dentistry by working with different specialists in the Miami area. I have been an Orthodontic assistant, primarily treating patients with cranial - facial anomalies. I have also assisted in an Endodontic office, and in 1995, I became a certified microscopic dental assistant at the Pacific Endodontic Research Foundation in San Diego, California. Prior to joining Dr. Pechter's staff in 2008, I worked at another periodontal office, where I first became experienced with dental implant surgeries.  
Since making Wellington my home, I feel fortunate to work in another high quality practice with Dr. Pechter. I am enjoying being re-introduced to the latest technology that a Periodontal practice has to offer, alongside a team - oriented staff.
When I'm not in the office, I enjoy cooking, walking nature trails, and talking with my brother on his dock, taking in the ocean's beauty. However, nothing compares with snuggling with my two daughters, or watching their latest dance, drama, or fashion show in the living room. The best things in life are family.


Hi, my name is Stacey. I am one of Dr. Pechter's hygienists. I have had the pleasure of working in this office since 2003. My initiation to dentistry was first as a certified dental assistant for six years. I then went on to study to be a hygienist. I received my Associate of Science degree in Dental Hygiene from Palm Beach Community College in 2002.
I feel privileged to work and learn with such an admirable and honest periodontist, as Dr. Pechter. This office and our patients are truly like a second family to me. To wake up every day and look forward to coming to work is such a blessing. What I love most about my job is the pride I feel in the quality of care we offer our patients. I feel lucky to be a part of this team.
When I am not at work, you can find me hanging with my family, at the beach, or cheering on the Dallas Cowboys football team.
