Meet Dr. Michaela DeSantis
I love being a dentist! I am blessed to have the ability to help people get out of pain, give them confident smiles, prevent disease before it starts, and calm their fears about going to the dentist. New materials, techniques, and research are truly making dentistry a joy and, dare I say, painless today.
I graduated from New York University College of Dentistry in 2000. I have a Bachelor of Science in biomedical engineering from Boston University, and I did a one-year general practice residency at Tufts University School of Dental Medicine. I have several professional memberships, including the Massachusetts Dental Society, the American Dental Association, and the American Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry. I am also a Spear Club member and take Spear Education courses and workshops, among others.
I offer an integrative, holistic approach to those patients who are interested in the natural lifestyle. It is my belief that naturopathic remedies offer great value in preventing and treating disease. These approaches may not work for everyone and every case, but when appropriate, they are proving to be efficient and effective.
I love spending time with my family. I have a young son who is in elementary school. My family and I enjoy the outdoors; we are happiest in some form of green space. My husband is an amazing gardener; he has the green thumb, unfortunately not me. We like biking, kayaking, walking nature trails, beaches, mountains, and lots of fresh air. We enjoy growing our own food, cooking it in a healthy way, and sharing it with our friends and family. I personally love reading nonfiction books, pursuing my dental continuing education courses, and discovering new places.
It will be my pleasure to assist you on your health journey. My staff and I look forward to meeting you, providing you with a comfortable and relaxing experience, and giving you a smile to feel great about!
