A cosmetic dentist with a legacy of compassion 

Born into a family of two physicians, Dr. Cardenas was instilled with a deep sense of compassion and a dedication to making a positive impact on people's lives from an early age. This guiding philosophy has shaped both her personal and professional journey, inspiring her to pursue a career in dentistry with a focus on patient-centered care.


A journey of dedication 

Dr. Cardenas's journey in dentistry is marked by a remarkable dedication to excellence and innovation. After earning her Doctorate of Dental Medicine and receiving the prestigious "Excellence Award" from Boston University Goldman School of Dental Medicine, she embarked on a 25-year career characterized by unwavering commitment and continuous learning.


Throughout her career, our cosmetic dentist Dr. Cardenas has been a trailblazer in the field of cosmetic dentistry. In 2015, she fulfilled a cherished dream by establishing our boutique cosmetic dental practice in Wellesley, Massachusetts. Since then, she has been at the forefront of digital treatment planning, pioneering the use of Digital Smile Design technology to create personalized treatment plans that exceed our patients' expectations.


A visionary approach to patient care

At Maria Cardenas DMD, patient education and engagement are at the heart of everything we do. Dr. Cardenas believes that every individual deserves to be fully informed and involved in their dental care journey. That's why we take the time to provide clear, comprehensive treatment plans that patients can visualize, understand, and discuss thoroughly before making any decisions.


Precision and quality in everything we do

In 2021, Dr. Cardenas achieved another milestone by establishing an in-house dental lab; our team continues to work closely with a Master Ceramist, and has done for over a decade. This achievement allows us to have complete mastery over outcomes, ensuring the highest level of quality and precision in cosmetic, reconstructive, and implant dentistry. 


From full mouth reconstructions to porcelain veneers and implant-supported porcelain bridges, we specialize in a wide range of restorative-prosthetic procedures designed to enhance your smile and improve your oral health.


Committed to excellence 

Dr. Cardenas's dedication to excellence extends beyond her clinical practice. As one of the founding members of the Boston American Academy of Clear Aligners Study Club and a distinguished Digital Smile Design Master clinician, she remains at the forefront of advancements in cosmetic dentistry. Her contributions to professional organizations such as the Massachusetts American Alliance for Independent Dentists and the American Dental Association reflect her ongoing commitment to innovation and excellence in dental care.
