About Dr. Dayan
"Dentistry has always been an important part of my life. Both my father and brother practice general dentistry in California. I graduated from UCLA Dental School, and then pursued specialty training in Periodontics and Oral Medicine at Harvard. There, I also became a Doctor of Medical Sciences in Oral Biology where I conducted NIH-funded research at Brigham and Women’s Hospital in the areas of oral cancer and periodontal disease."
Dr. Dayan has received over five years of periodontal education beyond the general dentist degree. More recently, she has obtained advanced training from prestigious institutes such as Dr. Pat Allen’s Center for Advanced Education, Misch International Implant Institute, the Kois Center, and the Dawson Center.
Dr. Sharona Dayan is the Founder and Director of the Boston Chapter of the Seattle Study Club (Boston Dental Alliance). What does that mean to you, the patient? It means that your dental professional has made a commitment to lifelong learning to provide you with the best care and newest techniques currently available in dentistry.
As the Director of the Boston Dental Alliance, Dr. Dayan serves as a resource for the dental community. Dr. Dayan runs monthly meetings that help dentists and hygienists keep abreast of the latest developments and treatment options available to patients. At these meetings, she organizes hands-on demonstrations, problem-solving workshops, panel discussions and clinical treatment planning sessions as well as inviting internationally known speakers to share information at local meetings.
