Roger Suter knew that he wanted to be a dentist at an early age. His father, Roger, was a coal miner and his mother, Nancy, was a nurse at Fairmont General Hospital. During a coal mine strike, his parents took Roger to WVU School of Dentistry for dental care when he was 8 years old. He saw the young dental students having fun while they took care of people, and he knew that was what he was destined to do. A West Virginia native, Dr. Suter graduated from East Fairmont High School in 1994 and from Fairmont State College in 1998. His inspiration and commitment to become an outstanding dentist motivated him to graduate with a Bachelor of Science Degree Cum Laude, and then on to graduate from West Virginia School of Dentistry in 2002. As further evidence of Dr. Suter’s dedication to excellence, he passed the Southern Regional Testing Agency (SRTA), which is recognized by 26 states.
Since then, the cornerstone of Dr. Suter’s dental practice is 14 years of experience and an innumerable amount of happy, trusting, and deeply valued patients. He is gifted with the ability to mesh both science and artistry to create beautiful, natural smiles for his patients.
