5 Questions: Sadler Health Center dentist announces retirement | Carlisle

Frazier also developed a keen interest in infection control and applied his knowledge to the dental clinic’s day-to-day operations, she said. He was also a former CPR instructor for Sadler’s staff.

According to Frazier, community health centers play an important role in providing accessible, affordable dental care.

“I was born into poverty and didn’t have access to dental care,” Frazier said. “The opportunity to take care of the basic health care needs of people who fell through the cracks is what brought me to Sadler.”

Before joining Sadler in January 2001, Frazier spent more than 20 years as a dentist in the U.S. Army. He earned his Bachelor of Science from Bethany College in West Virginia and his Doctor of Dental Surgery from Howard University College of Dentistry in Washington, D.C. He is a member of the American Dental Association, Pennsylvania Dental Association, and the Organization for Safety, Asepsis and Prevention.

“I’ve enjoyed caring and treating for thousands of patients during my tenure at Sadler,” Frazier said. “I will miss the first-rate dental team at Sadler, a team that is caring, professional and always goes out of their way to serve and take care of the dental needs of the community.”

During his retirement, Frazier plans to travel, spend more time with family, develop new hobbies and enhance his photography skills.
