Education is key

Education is a lifelong journey and a truly dedicated family dentist never stops learning. To this end, Dr. Gina Liggio Maestri DDS obtains 75-80 hours of continuing education every year, twice the state’s requirement. In addition, Dr. Maestri and her team focus on educating our patients through hands-on techniques and the open sharing of information. Well-informed patients tend to make better decisions when it comes to at-home dental hygiene and lifestyle choices that impact oral health. If you have any questions or feel that you need some professional guidance, please feel free to ask.
