After attending Ansonia High School and graduating from The Gunnery preparatory school in Washington Connecticut, Andy began his dentistry studies at the University of Pennsylvania and the University of Pennsylvania School of Dental Medicine. Upon graduation from Dental School in 1955, Andy enlisted in the United States Navy and served two years aboard the USS Coral Sea as a Lieutenant in the Naval dental corps.

That same year Andy met the love of his life, Judith Edgecombe. They were married in 1958. In 1973 Doc’s practice outgrew his first location so he moved to The Professional Building located directly across the street from the Firehouse in Old Saybrook. Andy’s practice remained there until his retirement. Andy believed in public service to the community as was evident in his over 50 years of Rotary service. After his retirement, Andy served on the Old Saybrook Board of Education, Old Saybrook republican town committee and was the Old Saybrook Board of Education’s liaison to Project Learn in East Lyme.
