Our Doctors:

Alan D. Schupack, DDS
Dr. Schupack has been practicing dentistry in Wallingford, CT since 1985.  After graduating from Platt High School in Meriden, Dr. Schupack earned a B.S. degree from the University of Bridgeport, followed by a Masters degree in public health from the University of California at Los Angeles.  He concluded his education at the University of Maryland (the first dental school in the world) where he received his DDS.  Since earning his degree, Dr. Schupack has had a desire to give back to his community.  He volunteered at the dental clinic at the Hospital for Special Care in New Britain, CT from 2001-2005.  He has been a volunteer faculty member at the University of Connecticut School of Dental Medicine since 2004, and he has participated in the Connecticut Mission of Mercy since 2010.  More recently, Dr. Schupack has felt compelled to share his skills and provide support on a more global level.  He has joined with other UConn faculty and students in mission trips to Honduras, in which they bring dental care to some of the poorest people in the Western Hemisphere.  Dr. Schupack is a member of the American Dental Association, The Connecticut State Dental Association and the Meriden-Wallingford-Cheshire Dental Society, of which he is a past-president.

Dr. Schupack lives with his wife Cindy and their Golden Retriever.  They have three grown children (Dan, Eric and Becca,) two wonderful daughter-in-laws (Katie and Kate,) and one adorable little grandson, (Ari Benjamin!)

Wendy F. Becker, DDS
Dr. Becker has been with the practice since 1999.  She is a member of the American Dental Association, The Connecticut State Dental Association and the Meriden-Wallingford-Cheshire Dental Society.  She enjoys being a dentist and strives to make every patient comfortable in her chair, while providing them the best dental care.  Prior to moving to Connecticut, she completed her General Practice Residency at Cornell Medical Center, New York Hospital, after receiving her DDS degree from Stony Brook School of Dental Medicine in 1998.  Dr. Becker did her undergraduate studies at Brandeis University, where she majored in psychology and minored in fine arts.

When she is not in the office, Dr. Becker and her husband, David Feldman, can usually be found on a baseball field, inside a hockey rink, or on a tennis court with any of their four boys.  Dr. Becker and her husband started and run The Children’s Fund for GSD Research ( ) which they founded to help raise research dollars to find a cure for one of their children.  In her spare time, Dr. Becker loves going for runs, playing tennis and painting.
