• About Us

  • We’ll do everything we can to make your child feel at home and comfortable, whether that means turning their dental visit into a science lesson or letting them watch their favorite show and snuggle up with a blanket.

    In 2015, I founded Hingham Pediatric Dentistry, meeting my objective of caring for children in our community with advanced, personalized and gentle dental care. 

    In 2007, I graduated from Tufts University, receiving my Doctorate in Dental Medicine summa cum laude. I am a member of Omicron Kappa Upsilon, a Dental Honor Society, and former President of the American Academy of Women Dentists.

    Following Tufts, I completed Pediatric Dentistry Residency and specialty training at Boston University. Today, I hold a faculty appointment as Clinical Professor at Boston University, also my undergraduate alma mater.

    I am Board Certified by the American Board of Pediatric Dentistry and a member of the American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry. Academically, I frequently participate in continuing education furthering my academic interest in advanced technologies, nutrition and preventative dentistry. 

    Recently, I introduced the Solea Laser™ to replace the dental drill in the majority of pediatric procedures. The Laser™ causes minimal pain, reduces vibration or noise and eliminates the need for anesthesia in many pediatric patients. Many parents also seek assistance with breastfeeding health. I successfully use the Solea Laser™ in soft tissue procedures such as lip and tied tongue.

    My philosophy is to use minimally invasive dental treatment to avoid dental disease. I enjoy educating families on preventative strategies to keep kids’ teeth healthy.

    Hingham Pediatric Dentistry sponsors local sports teams, school charities and road races, maintaining an active role in our community. I live in Hingham with my husband, a local architect, and two children. 

    I look forward to meeting with you and caring for your children!
