Dr. Wendell and Dr. Filacoma have trained for an additional two years beyond dental school at Boston Children's Hospital and Harvard School of Dental Medicine to better understand the unique needs of infants and children as well as those with special needs. It is this training as well as our years of experience that allows us to better understand children and provide them with quality dental care in a caring and compassionate manner.
