Dr. Joellyn Ferro

Joellyn Ferro, DMD

Dr. Ferro received her DMD degree from Tufts University School of Dental Medicine in 2011. Before beginning her career as a dentist, she graduated from Connecticut College with a bachelor’s degree in behavioral neuroscience, and subsequently began working as a lab technician researching neurodegenerative diseases such as Alzheimer's and Parkinson's disease.

Recognized for her “Clinical Excellence and Patient Care," Dr. Ferro takes a very interpersonal, patient approach to working with patients. She takes the time to thoroughly explain to each patient what they might expect, answers any questions they may have, and goes the extra mile to make sure all her patients are comfortable and happy with their experience.

Practicing dentistry in the greater Boston area for over five years, Dr. Ferro has treated patients of all ages and is particularly sensitive to those with dental anxiety. Considering dentistry to be the perfect mix of art and science, she thoroughly enjoys the artistic aspect of dentistry and loves helping people achieve the smile they’ve always wanted (She often lovingly refers to her work as “mini architecture in the mouth”).

Dr. Ferro also strives to stay up to date on the latest dental technologies and frequently attends continuing education courses. Her professional memberships include the American Dental Association and Massachusetts Dental Society. In addition to her passion for patient care in dentistry, Dr. Ferro is also passionate about animals, contributing to organizations such as the MSPCA and the National Wildlife Federation. In her spare time, Dr. Ferro enjoys drawing, painting, hiking, spending time with her daughter and pets.
