Maria Cardenas DMD

Recognized as one of Boston magazine's Top Dentists 2018 - General & Cosmetic Dentistry

As the daughter of two physicians, caring for others was a principle instilled in me early on. My parents taught me that it was important to make a difference in people’s lives. This is the credo that has defined my personal and professional development through the years. Being able to enhance lives and empower patients is why I do what I do.

After receiving my Doctorate of Dental Medicine and Certificate of Advanced Graduate Studies from Boston University Goldman School of Dental Medicine, where I was honored to be presented with the "Excellence Award,” I held the position of Clinical Instructor at Boston University in the Operative and Esthetic Dentistry residency, as well as the Advanced Education in General Dentistry Program. The past eighteen years of dental practice have molded who I am, personally and professionally.

Along the way, I discovered that dentistry is a true art form. My experience over the last decade has focused on smile design and full mouth esthetic reconstruction. My dental practice is one of the few certified as an official Digital Smile Design center in New England.

Clinical excellence is not achieved by chance, it is achieved by building and valuing patient trust. In my heart I know that there is no single set of rules to apply to all patients, as each person is unique in their needs, desires, and goals. Treatment should be tailor-made to each patient. No shortcuts. No excuses.

I strongly believe in following your passion from a place of excellence and generosity. My primary goal is to create a strong connection with my patients, to understand them better and to offer a customized experience that exceeds their expectations and enhances their lives.

To stay connected to my professional community and to continually learn about new techniques and practices, I am an active member of the following professional associations: American Dental Association, Massachusetts Dental Society, Metropolitan Dental Society, Digital Smile Design US Master Team, Charles River Study Club, MetroWest Study Club.
