Introduction from Dr. Mapes
“Let me begin by saying that I am really excited to be joining Smiles On The Canal Family Dentistry! The practice originally began as a pediatric dental office in 1991, and I look forward to continuing that legacy. I truly appreciate that so many of the parents of our current pediatric dental patients were once pediatric patients themselves.
In fact, the best part of being a pediatric dentist is developing these meaningful relationships and being welcomed into your families.
I am coming to Smiles On The Canal Family Dentistry from the Eastman Institute for Oral Health at the University of Rochester where I served as Clinical Director in the Pediatric Dentistry department. I completed my Pediatric Dental residency in 2012 at the University of Rochester, including a fellowship in neurodevelopmental and related disorders (LEND program) at the Strong Center for Developmental Disabilities, Golisano Children’s Hospital.
Originally a native of Ottawa, Canada I earned my Doctorate of Dental Surgery in 2008 from the University of Western Ontario and later practiced in a family dental practice until deciding to specialize as a pediatric dentist. Now, as a Diplomate of the American Board of Pediatric Dentistry, I am deeply committed to lifelong learning and constantly improving what I can offer each individual child. I strive to earn each child’s trust with compassion and empathy at every encounter. I currently live in Victor, NY with my husband and four children. I look forward to seeing you and your children very soon!”
