Dr. Lucas Patrick was born and raised in Indonesia before moving to the United States in 2001. Once here, he began his undergraduate education initially at the University of Wisconsin in Madison. In 2006, he received a Bachelor of Science degree in Electrical and Computer Engineering from Cornell University in Ithaca, NY. After Cornell, he attended Boston University Goldman School of Dental Medicine and received his Doctorate of Dental Medicine in 2010. During dental school, Dr. Patrick received the Goldman School of Dental Medicine Dean’s Award and the Outstanding Achievement Award in Research for his pre-doctoral research in dental biomaterials.
As a result of his interest in the surgical aspects of dentistry, Dr. Patrick completed an additional one-year oral and maxillofacial surgery internship at Boston University immediately following dental school. After working as a general dentist in both community dental clinics and private practice settings for several years in Maine, he returned to Boston and Harvard University School of Dental Medicine where he earned a certificate in periodontics and a Master of Medical Science. In his free time, Dr. Patrick, who is a soccer aficionado, enjoys traveling and trying out new restaurants around town with his wife.
