Evetta Shwartzman

Evetta Shwartzman

D.M.D. / L.V.I.F. / FIACA

Like Dr. Ronkin, Dr. Evetta Shwartzman came to the United States from a former republic of the Soviet Union. Born in Riga, Latvia, she practiced dentistry there for 5 years before immigrating to America in 1989. Now a resident of Sharon, Dr. Shwartzman looks back at her decision with no regrets. Challenged by a system that often left her office without essential technology and supplies, she sought to give her patients what they deserved - the best. Now that she is stateside, she is able to deliver the best.

Dr. Shwartzman graduated from the Tufts School of Dental Medicine in Boston, where she met her future partner, Konstantin Ronkin. Together, they have ambitiously built the practice that is now Dream Smile Dental. Just as committed to cutting-edge technology and continuing education as Dr. Ronkin, Dr. Shwartzman was the driving force behind becoming the first practice in New England to offer the only FDA-approved tooth whitening procedure. She has also invested in advanced education at the Las Vegas Institute for Advanced Dental Studies to ensure that she is providing her patients with the best dental care possible.

"I just like giving people beautiful smiles," she says. Say no more.

David Pelham

David Pelham

D.D.S

Dr. Pelham, a Massachusetts native, was born in Boston. This Bostonian's mother was a school teacher in nearby Stoughton, while his father worked for a Boston shipyard. Inspired by his interest and curiosity for dentistry, he went on to Tufts University and then Harvard University to receive his periodontal specialization degree. He continues to hold an honorable job as a clinical instructor at the Harvard School of Medicine, because he enjoys the satisfaction of teaching and continues to learn from the experience.

"Every patient is different and has different needs" says Dr. Pelham. "I work to tailor to each patient and strive to ensure comfort and satisfaction." Dr. Pelham strongly believes that all patients should be well informed and all treatment should be accomplished as comfortably as possible.

Implants have revolutionized dentistry, and the three additional perio training years Dr. Pelham has spent at Harvard, have made it possible for him to place implants safely and effectively. "Implants are as close as you can get to giving someone back their original teeth".

“Working as a pediatric dentist allows me to be a positive influence in one of the most exciting, evolving, and challenging phases of a young person’s life”, says Dr. Krausz. He adds, “Interacting with the kids keeps me up to date, involved, and on my toes every day. I feel incredibly lucky to be able to say I enjoy my job, take great pride in my work, and feel very gratified with my contribution to society.”

Every job Dr. Krausz has had from high school to the present day has involved working with children. As an after-school and summer-camp counselor, he had the opportunity to mentor, guide, and support children in a social environment, helping them develop interpersonal skills, self confidence, and a sense of responsibility for one’s own actions. He always found great satisfaction in guiding children onto a path of mutual respect, honesty, and self-responsibility. As a pediatric dentist he feels he has the ability to shape his patients’ attitudes about dental care and oral health for the rest of their lives through positive experiences they have in our office.

Earning his postgraduate degree at Boston University Goldman School of Dental Medicine brought Dr. Krausz to New England after attaining his dental degree from the University of Southern California School of Dentistry. Dr. Krausz is a diplomate of the American Board of Pediatric Dentistry.
