Posted by Janice Spada, D.M.D. on Wed, Feb 19, 2014 @ 08:34 AM

In my practice as a family dentist in Sudbury, MA, I see many of patients from the time they are three through their college years and then professional lives.

When my patients who are students from nearby Boston College, Bates College, and Connecticut College schedule exams and dental hygiene visits at our office, I see how college life can take a serious toll on young adults’ oral health.

Building Patient Trust 

Posted by Janice Spada, D.M.D. on Tue, Sep 17, 2013 @ 11:35 AM

We believe trust is developed when we handle our patients with care.

Recently I had to accompany my father to the emergency room. During the entire emergency room experience, I started to realize how as health care professionals we can lose sight of why we became healthcare providers.

A Sudbury MA Dentist On The Dental Products You Should Buy

Posted by Janice Spada, D.M.D. on Tue, Aug 27, 2013 @ 04:37 PM

My responsibility is to educate and not become the marketing wing for any manufacturer.
