Bob enjoys home repair projects which keep him busy. He also enjoys collecting canes, stamps, knives, ivory carvings and Meerschaum pipes. One of his favorite pastimes is shopping with his wife. Dr. Piede still enjoys dentistry after 40 years of practice. He sees every day as a new adventure. He particularly enjoys restoring smiles with crowns and removable prosthetics. He has no plans to retire because dentistry has always been what he wanted to do since the age of twelve.
