We are pleased to welcome Dr. Erica Davis to our practice in Westwood! A graduate of Tufts University School of Dental Medicine, Dr. Davis decided to go into dentistry because of her own experiences growing up. After her high school years saw her in headgear and braces, she needed some bonding done to correct a few uneven teeth. It was then that she realized how much of an impact that had on her life. She was now confident and happy with her new smile. She pursued a career in dentistry because she wanted to be able to give that experience to others. To this day, it’s one of her favorite parts of being a dentist.
Dr. Davis specializes in adult and child dental care. Her special interests include comprehensive examinations, fillings, crowns, bridges, implant crowns, dentures, partial dentures, simple extractions, root canals, night guards, and teeth whitening. She enjoys feeling like she is making a difference and helping people. She says, “It is very rewarding to help people work through their dental anxiety.” Her patient philosophy is the “golden rule of dentistry”: treat your patients as you would yourself or your family. Dr. Davis takes great pride in the quality of her work and has exceptionally high standards for herself. She values that patients trust her and know she has their best interests at heart.
Along with practicing, for the past four years, she has been teaching Tufts and Boston University students during their externship rotations at Codman Square Health Center in Dorchester. She also spent four years working in public health in Dorchester, providing dentistry to underserved populations and educating students and residents.
When she is not in the office, Dr. Davis can be found spending time with her horse, Ted, who she trains and rides in equestrian competitions. She is also a big Patriots fan! Originally from Maine, Dr. Davis now resides in Dedham, MA.
