Division of Dentistry

Your patients will thank you for recommending Mass General Dental Group, Boston's premiere destination for comprehensive hospital-based dental care. Although we serve the general population, we also have special expertise in managing the dental needs of medically compromised patients.

We are like traditional dental practices EXCEPT

  • we have all dental specialties under one-roof
  • we provide care for the entire family, pediatrics to seniors
  • all our staff have academic appointments
  • we are a training site for Harvard training programs
  • our general dentists have advanced training in hospital-based practice

We are set apart from traditional dental practices BECAUSE

  • we have special expertise in dental management of medical compromised patients
  • we conduct clearance exams for patients undergoing chemotherapy, transplants, heart surgery
  • when medically indicated, we provide dental rehabilitation in an operating room setting for patients with extreme mental or physical disability
  • we provide inpatient consultations for hospitalized patients with myriad conditions, e.g. prosthetic value surgery, bone marrow or other organ transplants, chemotherapy, radiotherapy
  • we access the patient's medical record and coordinate care with the attending and consulting physician
  • as part of Mass General's Department of Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery, we work with a comprehensive team to coordinate care and restoration for victims of trauma to the head and neck regions

If you have a patient requiring dental care who you feel needs special expertise, please feel free to call us directly at (617) 726-1076.  We are happy to discuss treatment options and help you to select the appropriate referral.
