Our History

Dr. Sandra F. Cove and her sister Dr. Sara E. Cove Kehoe have an extensive history of dentists in their family, consisting of eighteen dentists over four generations. Their great, great, great, great grandfather would travel from door to door for patients with toothaches. He became a Canvasser and traveled throughout the North of England by horse and carriage in the 1930’s. Their father Dr. Norman Cove, uncles Dr. Peter Cove and Dr. Michael Cove, aunt Dr. Penny Cove Burke, Dr. Mair Cove, and cousins Dr. Simon Cove and Dr. Tony Cove, all currently practice dentistry in England, Canada and in The Bahamas.

Dr. Cove and Dr. Cove Kehoe originally from The Bahamas, earned their Doctor ofMedical Dentistry degrees from the prestigious Tufts University School of Dental Medicine in Boston, Massachusetts. They loved New England and decided to make it their home. With a commitment to delivering the highest level of contemporary, comprehensive and compassionate dental care, Dr. Cove established her practice in Ashland, Massachusetts in 1999. Her sister, Susan joined her to manage the administrative aspect of the practice. Dr. Cove Kehoe soon joined the team, as well as their mother Ms. Elizabeth Cove. Dr. Jonell Hopeck, a periodontist, joined the practice in 2011. She brings with her the expertise ofgum and bone health, as well as placement of implants in our office.

The original practice was established in 1997 and was located at 360 Pleasant Street. This was a temporary location, as Dr. Cove purchased a house at 37 Main Street with the intentions of converting it into a dental practice. Unfortunately, the house did not meet the specifications or needs of the new practice so it was demolished. A brand new building was constructed and specifically designed as a dental office that maintained a homey, friendly environment. We moved into the new practice in May of 2000. The practice contains five state of the art operatories, a sterilization area with the most current sterilization equipment available, a private consultation room as well as an on site laboratory.

Dedicated to staying current and proficient with leading edge dentistry, Dr. Cove and Dr. Cove Kehoe have incorporated the most advanced dental technology and techniques into their practice, such as digital radiographs, CEREC single appointment crowns, Zoom! in office whitening, Zimmer implant system, to name a few.

Dr. Cove and Dr. Cove Kehoe take pride in being constant students of the profession byregularlyparticipatein continuing education and advanced training courses throughout the country. Currently they are pursuing their Masters in General Dentistry through The Academy of General Dentistry, which is a five year commitment.
