Welcome Our New Pediatric Dentist

  Monday, July 20, 2015

We are pleased to announce the addition of a new Pediatric Dentist, Kathleen McCafferty, D.M.D., to our Needham Pediatric Practice.

Dr. McCafferty was born and raised in Sudbury, Ontario, Canada. She completed her undergraduate education at Harvard University where she studied Human Evolutionary Biology.

Dr. McCafferty attended the Harvard School of Dental Medicine, obtaining her DMD. Her post-doctoral training was completed at the Children’s Hospital of Boston and the Harvard School of Dental Medicine where she received her Certificate in Pediatric Dentistry in 2015 and served as chief resident during her second year.

While in college, she was a member of the Division I Harvard Women’s Soccer and Ice Hockey teams, competing for a national hockey championship twice in her career.

During her free time, she enjoys being active, playing sports such as soccer, hockey, golf, tennis and swimming. When she can’t get outside to enjoy the sun, she loves reading and, of course, spending time with her family.

Your child may be meeting Dr. McCafferty at his or her upcoming checkup visit. Dr. McCafferty will begin treating patients in our Needham office beginning in the month of August 2015 and in our Franklin office starting in the month of November 2015. We are sure you will find that she is a superb dentist and that your child will continue to receive the excellent dental care that you have come to expect from Chestnut Dental Associates.

We are very excited to have Dr. McCafferty become part of the CDA family.

Please join us in welcoming Dr. McCafferty to our practice.
