Blane J. Nasveschuk, DMD – Dentist

Through 1980, Dr. Nasveschuk did a General Practice Residency at Long Island Jewish- Hillside Medical Center (Now Northshore LIJ Hospital) located in New Hyde Park, NY. He entered “general dental practice”, first in Charlotte, NC and then moved to Rutland, VT in April 1981.
Dr. Nasveschuk began integration into the Rutland community with Dental Associates of Rutland, and Affiliates in Dental Care. In October 1988, he started Implant and General Dentistry of Vermont, expanding the scope of his general dental practice to include dental implant placement and restoration.
Besides professional contributions to the Vermont State Dental Society through its Council on Dental Education and the Rutland County Dental Society, Dr. Nasveschuk currently “Mentors” colleague peers through CERECdoctors.com at the Scottsdale Center for Dentistry, Scottsdale, AZ.
He has been a 20 year Rotarian and past Rutland County United Way Campaign Chair and President. Although a past volunteer for numerous activities and events involving his wife and sons, Chris, Pete and Matt, Dr. Nasveschuk is most delighted with his “catalytic” role that led to the building of the Rutland Regional Field House, now Castleton State College’s Spartan Arena, at the Diamond Run Mall.
Dr. Nasveschuk models a healthy life style for his family, friends and patients. He truly enjoys the benefits of the intense physical exercise of his youth, whether running the New York City Marathon, cycling through the Green and White Mountains, Telemark skiing at Killington and Pico or climbing at at the gym!

Cindi Nasveschuk – Concierge and Business Manager
Cindi (Giovanni) Nasveschuk was born in Yonkers, NY. Over the years she spent her early childhood moving with her family to England, New Jersey, Georgia and then back to NJ just in time for her senior year in high school. She graduated from East Brunswick High School in 1971 and then four years later in 1975 from Glassboro State College with a degree in Elementary Education. She was also a four year Varsity Gymnast at Glassboro and Co-captained her team in her senior year. Cindi and Blane married shortly after college graduation. While Blane was attending dental school at University of Pennsylvania School of Dental Medicine, Cindi was also earning her “PhT” (Putting Him Through!) working at a variety of teaching positions including speech correction, remedial math, 7th and 8th grade math in south NJ, gymnastics in Philadelphia, PA, and even typing for the note-taking service at the dental school.
Christopher was born in Philadelphia in ’78. The family moved to New Hyde Park, NY in ‘79 for Blane’s Residency program, then to Charlotte, NC for a brief time before relocating to Rutland, VT in April 1981. Peter was born later that summer and Matthew in May of ’84. The family settled into a wonderful life in Rutland Town: school, baseball, soccer, skiing, and RAHA hockey… with mom still teaching, judging gymnastics and bringing the boys to Dunklee’s Gymnastics Camp in South Hero, VT every summer!
Cindi started helping out at Blane’s practice in the autumn of ’89. Matt had just started kindergarten, and it seemed like a good idea! Over the past 20 years, the “Idea” has evolved and blossomed for Cindi. In addition to her skill as a clinical assistant, she is the consummate “concierge” manager and advocate for the highest level of communication, understanding and service.
Cindi continues to share the lives of her growing family… the adventures of three sons growing up… from Rutland HS, MSJ Academy and Exeter, to Middlebury, Bowdoin, RIT and the US Navy… weddings, grandchildren and having fun playing volleyball, rock climbing and knitting with friends. Life is Good!
