Meet Dr. Perkins
Dentistry combines my calling in the healthcare field with a hands-on aspect that allows me to restore my patients’ health. Creating a positive experience, especially for an anxious patient, is satisfying in ways that I couldn’t have predicted when I first began my career as a dentist. Hearing that a procedure was painless and stress-free is such a rewarding gift. It is my goal to create that response in all my patients, leading to generations of people who no longer fear a trip to the dentist.
As an Invisalign® Preferred Provider, I love restoring beautiful smiles to adults who never thought they could have straight teeth without metal braces. I have been an Invisalign provider for over ten years, and hope to use the technology to bring many more smiles to Stoneham.
Education and Continuing Education
- Undergraduate Degree – College of the Holy Cross, Worcester, MA
- Doctorate of Dental Medicine – Tufts University School of Dental Medicine
I feel continuing education is a crucial aspect of providing my patients with the best dental care possible. I am committed to taking continuing education courses to both advance and refine my knowledge and keep up-to-date with the latest trends in dentistry. I annually attend the Yankee Dental Congress in Boston, and am an active attendee of continuing education courses offered by my alma mater, Tufts University.
Outside the Office
I grew up in Milton, Massachusetts and have never lived outside the Boston area. I guess I just love home! My husband, Tim, and I have two small children, Joseph and Erin. When I’m not in the office, I enjoy playing and watching sports with my family. On the weekends, when not at soccer practice, we can be found playing T-ball or swimming in the summer. In the winter we love to ice skate and ski.
