Dr. Maria E. Cardenas has been in practice for over seventeen years. She received her Doctorate of Dental Medicine and her Certificate of Advanced Graduate Studies degrees from Boston University School of Dental Medicine, where she was recognized with the "Excellence Award". She held the position of Clinical Instructor at Boston University in the Operative and Esthetic Dentistry residency, as well as in the Advanced Education in General Dentistry Program.
Dr. Cardenas's passion is Dental Esthetics. Her experience over the last decade has focused on full mouth esthetic reconstructions, porcelain veneers, all ceramic restorations, and implant dentistry. She is also certified as a "Smile Designer", with extensive training in dental photography and video. Digital Smile Design is a facially guided protocol that allows the restorative dentist to carefully analyze and plan the esthetic treatment through digital photography and video. This protocol is an excellent tool to visualize the final result before treatment begins, allowing proper patient feedback, increasing communication among the specialists and technicians involved, and ultimately the production of predictable and consistent esthetic outcomes. Dr Cardenas strongly believes in following your passion from a place of excellence and generosity. Her most important goal is to create a strong connection with her patients, to understand them better and offer an experience that is customized and exceeds their expectations. Dr. Cardenas was born and raised in Venezuela. When she is not at the office, she enjoys yoga, running, reading, and photography.
