Meet the Doctors

Robert Memory, DMD, MD

Born and raised in Massachusetts, Dr. Memory always wanted to become a doctor, as long as he could remember, to use his love of science to help people.

He earned a Bachelor of Science degree from Boston College in 1995 and a Doctor of Dental Medicine degree from Tufts University School of Dental Medicine in 1999. After dental school, he completed a general practice residency at Morristown Memorial Hospital in New Jersey. There he received broad exposure in all aspects of dental care, and he especially enjoyed the challenges of treating head and neck trauma. He decided he must go back to school, so to speak, to become an oral surgeon. He applied and was accepted to a very competitive six-year oral and maxillofacial surgery residency at New York Presbyterian/Columbia University Medical Center. In the course of his residency training, Dr. Memory earned a medical degree from Columbia University College of Physicians and Surgeons. He has been practicing in Massachusetts since 2007.

Dr. Memory is trained in the full scope of oral and maxillofacial surgery including extractions, pathology, facial trauma, anesthesia/sedation and implant and bone-grafting procedures. He was part of a team that performed the first ever CT-computer guided implant placement at Columbia University College of Dental Medicine.

Dr. Memory is board certified by the American Board of Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery and the National Dental Board of Anesthesiology. He is a Fellow of the American Association of Oral and Maxillofacial Surgeons and a member of the American Dental Association.

Dr. Memory enjoys volunteering on behalf of his professional community. He has held multiple leadership positions in the Metropolitan District Dental Society, including Chairperson, and the Massachusetts Society of Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery, where he currently serves as President. In 2019, he received the Robert Burke award for volunteerism from the Metropolitan District Dental Society. He is consistently named a “Top Doctor” by his peers as reported in Boston magazine. Dr. Memory is also an active member of the medical staff at Newton-Wellesley Hospital and is a licensed dentist and physician in the Commonwealth of Massachusetts.

Dr. Memory lives in Needham with his wife and two daughters. He enjoys travel, golf, and skiing, and is a passionate fan of all of the championship sports teams in Boston.

Ross Fahey, DDS

After practicing in Nashville, Tennessee, Dr. Fahey was very happy to return to the Boston area to join Dr. Robert Memory and the Wellesley Oral Surgery and Implant Center team in May 2023. Dr. Fahey is trained in the full scope of oral and maxillofacial surgery including pediatric oral surgery, extractions, pathology, facial trauma, anesthesia/sedation and implant and bone-grafting procedures. He is board certified by the American Board of Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery. He is a Fellow of the American Association of Oral and Maxillofacial Surgeons and a member of the American Dental Association.

Dr. Fahey holds a Bachelor of Science degree in biology from Emory University and earned his Doctor of Dental Surgery degree with honors from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. He completed his oral and maxillofacial surgery residency training at Tufts University School of Dental Medicine in 2018. While at Tufts, Dr. Fahey was honored to receive the Sterns Scholarship for Excellence in Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery.

Dr. Fahey lives in Boston with his wife and their rescue dog, Nessie. In his free time, he enjoys traveling, exploring Boston, trying new restaurants, and watching his favorite sports teams, especially the UNC Tar Heels and Arsenal. He is also currently working on learning Spanish.

Video Testimonials

Our patients say

“ I cannot say amazing enough! From Jean at the front desk, to Gina the dental assistant , to Dr Memory, each was so kind, compassionate and friendly! I had an initial consultation with Dr Memory to review the treatment plan. He was patient and explained everything clearly. I was confident with the plan we decided upon but still nervous during the time leading up to it (as I am sure most people are)…luckily all for no reason. He was as gentle as could be!  Before I knew it we were done…quick and painless. Without a doubt Dr Memory and his team are the best! Wish I had found them for my previous work but glad I have them now. I absolutely give them the most stars I can give and then some. Pricing was very reasonable as well….wanted to make sure I mentioned that too.  Thank you, Dr Memory and team for being so competent, kind, and patient! I very much appreciate all of you!”

Pauline C.

“ I was very pleased with my experience at Wellesley Oral Surgery. Dr Fahey and his assistant, Ann, were very friendly and explained the process very thoroughly. Dr Fahey performed the extraction very efficiently and with no pain. Since my surgery I have only taken two Tylenol Pills once when I got home. Since then I’ve had no pain and have not had to take any more Tylenol. Dr Fahey called a few days after my surgery to check on my progress.
It was a great experience, I would recommend Wellesley Oral Surgery to anyone needing a removal or an implant!”

Jim V.

“ Undoubtedly the best oral surgery-related experience I've ever had. On the day of my surgery- 4 wisdom teeth extraction,  I've felt as though I've been cared for and treated like family.  I have been beyond pleased with the excellent care I have received at Wellesley Oral Surgery & Implant Center!  Dr. Memory was knowledgeable and very informative.  He was very patience and answered all my questions.  He and his team were kind and gentle and have taken my fear of surgery away! I felt at ease and knew I was in good hands with them. I recommend this group whole heartedly!  Truly the best!!!”

Amy S.

“ Amazing experience!  Dr. Memory and the  whole team were super professional and friendly. They took really good care of me. They guided me through the process clearly and were on time with the appointment. I was quite nervous about the wisdom tooth procedure going in but it was so quick and painless (had all four wisdom teeth removed). One moment I was out, the next I was done. The blink of an eye! I appreciated the follow up phone call to see how I was doing. Thank you again for a great experience!”

Quinn F.

“ They are extremely knowledgeable and out to help you as much as possible. I got my wisdom teeth removed recently and Dr. Memory was very good at his job as well as the anesthesiologist and PAs. While it sucks recovering from it, Wellesley Oral Surgery did their absolute best to make the process easier on me. If you need implants, tooth removals, or have general dental needs and live anywhere near Wellesley or Newton, I'd put my trust in them!”

Alex

“ A great experience… Dr. Memory was fantastic and made my husband feel at ease. His team is very professional and extremely personable - not a number .My husband liked Dr. Memory and team so much that he scheduled for additional dental work.”
