Mary Jo Massaro, DMD
Dr. Massaro was born and raised in Havertown, Pennsylvania. She attended Archbishop Prendergast High School where she graduated with top honors, studied in the Comprehensive Science Program at Villanova University, and graduated Magna Cum Laude from Temple University with a degree in Biology. She then went on to Temple University School of Dentistry where she excelled in the academic and clinic aspects of dentistry. She was treasurer of the Stomatognathic Honor Society and went on a mission trip in Haiti to perform dentistry on the underserved. After earning her doctorate degree, she continued her dental training at Christiana Care Hospital in Wilmington, Delaware, where she was able to hone her skills in surgery, implants, and interdisciplinary care on medically compromised patients. She was chosen to work under one of her attending doctors after graduation from the residency program, where she remained from 2010 until 2019.
Dr. Massaro strives to keep up with current technology and techniques. Throughout her career, Dr. Massaro has studied at the famous Pankey and Spear Institutes for advanced training in dental function, esthetics, and full mouth rehabilitation. She is keenly aware of the mouth/body connection and how each patient’s unique situation contributes to their overall health, like how orthodontics can improve a patient’s sleep apnea, and treating periodontal disease can improve heart and vascular health.
She practices mercury free, mercury safe dentistry and truly cares about her patient’s wellbeing. She became S.M.A.R.T. certified in 2018 which means she safely removes silver “amalgam” fillings, compared to most dentists who do not use any precautions when working with mercury. She delivers quality dental care and believes in educating her patients in being their own dental health advocate.
Dr. Massaro’s patients often remark what a light touch she has, and how pleasantly surprised they are with their dental experience. She welcomes people of all ages at her practice, including those who are scared of the dentist. It is not uncommon for the entire family to end up being patients of Dr. Massaro’s!
Dr. Massaro and her husband reside in Newtown Square with their 3 children. In her free time, Dr. Massaro likes to read, learn to play tennis, and go to the shore.
