In Memory of Peter Frechette

Dental Lifeline Network is grateful for Peter Frechette, former CEO of Patterson Companies, and a longtime supporter of the DLN programs that give so many people their smiles back. DLN expresses greatest sympathy on behalf of the people whose lives have been touched, and will continue to be helped because of Peter’s benevolent spirit.

More than 10 years ago Peter met with then DLN board member, Gary Porter and founder, Dr. Larry Coffee. Peter and his wife, Pat agreed to expand Patterson’s corporate involvement with DLN by providing a most generous personal gift to establish an endowment fund.

“Pete gave us the opportunity to more fully realize our potential. His compassion and kindness will continue enabling individuals to access therapies restoring their health, comfort, function, self-respect and personally dignity,” said Gary.

The $1 million DLN legacy that Peter and Pat helped ensure with his passion and leadership lives on today. As Larry noted, “We honor Pete’s memory by pledging our best and most compassionate efforts in service to the vulnerable people so in need of help.”
