Meet Dr. Hallstead

Geoffry E. Hallstead, DMD

Dentistry has allowed me to touch many lives. Helping people through pain and being able to help them smile again is truly a joy. Every case we deal with has a person behind it and getting to know them is special. Everyone has a story to tell and knowledge to share and receiving this information brings me joy and fulfillment.” – Dr. Hallstead

Dr. Geoffry Hallstead began practicing general dentistry 25 years ago, though his history with the dental field goes back to his childhood. The son of a dentist, Dr. Hallstead grew up seeing the difference his father made in his patients’ lives each and every day. Seeing dentistry as an opportunity to continue helping people live a better life, Dr. Hallstead chose to follow in his father’s footsteps and joined the dental field.

Dr. Hallstead began his formal education at St. John Fisher College in Rochester, NY. He completed his Doctorate of Dental Medicine at the University of Pennsylvania School of Dentistry. Returning to Canandaigua in 1988, he assumed the helm of his father’s dental practice which was established in 1957.

To continue his education, Dr. Hallstead has completed many hours of continuing education at the Kois Center, an organization committed to the advancement of dentistry through science. His advanced knowledge and training allows his patients to receive better treatment and a more enjoyable dental experience.

A native of Canandaigua, Dr. Hallstead has been pleased to grow his practice and raise his family in such a wonderful community. He and his wife, Jane, have two children, Ricky and Serica. Dr. Hallstead enjoys spending his free time with his family, and has many interests including driving horse and carriage, gardening, and beekeeping. He is actively involved with the March of Dimes, Lions Club, Granger Homestead, and Sonnenberg Gardens.
