Erin M. Walsh D.M.D.

Erin M. Walsh, D.M.D.

Dr. Erin Walsh graduated from Villanova University with a degree in Biology. She went on to earn her Doctorate of Dental Medicine from Tufts University School of Dental Medicine in 2009. 

A New England native, Dr. Walsh is a second-generation dentist. She is proud to have begun her career alongside her father, Dr. James McManus, who instilled in her a love of dentistry as well as a caring and compassionate approach with her patients. She sees dentistry as a unique profession that allows her the opportunity to improve a patient’s quality of life by removing pain, easing anxiety, and restoring function and self-confidence.

Dr. Walsh is a volunteer provider for RI Mission of Mercy and Give Kids a Smile. She is a member of the American Dental Association and the Massachusetts Dental Society and a fellow in the Pierre Fauchard Academy. She is a past President of the Kent County Dental Society and was a member of the RIDA House of Delegates and Membership Council. She has been named to the Rhode Island Monthly Magazine Top Dentists list and Boston Magazine Top Dentists List.

An oil painter in her spare time, Dr. Walsh enjoys the artistry involved in the practice of dentistry. When not at the office, Dr. Walsh enjoys spending time with her husband and their twins.

Dr. Walsh is happily accepting new patients.

Ethan Sturm D.M.D.

Dr. Ethan Sturm graduated from Tufts University School of Dental Medicine in 2017 with a Doctor of Dental Medicine.  He believes that patient comfort and autonomy is paramount to dental treatment, and wants his patients to have a deep understanding of what is happening every step of the way, from treatment planning to post-treatment instructions. He particularly enjoys cosmetic dentistry, prosthodontics and palliative care, as each offers the opportunity for patients to leave our practice feeling better than when they entered. He is also experienced in working with children.  

When outside of the practice, Dr. Sturm can be found cooking and exploring with his wife, spoiling his cat, and playing or watching just about any sport imaginable. He is an avid Yankees and Giants fan, though he understands this is not a popular opinion in Massachusetts.

James F. McManus D.D.S.

Dr. James McManus attended Providence College then went on to graduate from Georgetown University School of Dentistry in 1977.  He is the proud father of Dr. Erin Walsh and is happy to be working with his daughter while also enjoying some well earned time off as he is now semi-retired.   He began his career in the U.S. Public Health Service and was stationed in rural South Dakota.  He then went on to build his private practice in East Greenwich, RI.  He is a past president of Kent County Dental Society and a fellow in the Pierre Fauchard Academy.   When Dr. McManus isn't lending his time and expertise at the office he can be found spending time with his wife, Patricia, and their 10 grandchildren, often fishing or on the golf course.
