Dr. Stefanie Aquilina

Board Certified Pediatric Dentist

“Dr. Stefanie” is a Board Certified specialist in pediatric dentistry. She is committed to providing the best care possible in a compassionate and personalized manner. Her goal for every visit is to make each child feel special and proud of what they can accomplish. Dr. Stefanie embraces minimally invasive techniques in treating her young patients whenever possible. She is a strong believer in identifying and solving the “root” of dental disease, which is often most successfully treated at home (daily dental hygiene and diet modification)!

Dr. Stefanie grew up on Long Island, NY and studied biology at Cornell University where she graduated with Distinction in All Subjects. She went on to obtain her dental degree from the University of Connecticut School of Dental Medicine. At UConn, Dr. Stefanie was inducted into Omicron Kappa Upsilon National Dental Honor Society (awarded to the top 5 graduating students) and received the Pierre Fauchard Academy Award. Dr. Stefanie completed a two year pediatric dentistry residency at UConn and Connecticut Children’s Medical Center where she received advanced training to provide the highest quality care to infants, children, adolescents, and children with special health care needs.

After completing her residency, Dr. Stefanie worked in private practice in Western Massachusetts where she was presented with the Top Ten Under 10 Award by the Massachusetts Dental Society. She is also a member of the American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry and a Diplomate of the American Board of Pediatric Dentistry. She is proud to maintain surgical privileges at Connecticut Children’s Medical Center. Dr. Stefanie remains active in the local dental community as the treasurer of the Connecticut Society of Pediatric Dentists.
When not in the office, Dr. Stefanie enjoys traveling, yoga, skiing, and spending time with her family and friends. Dr. Stefanie loves animals and would be happy to show you a picture of her “furbabies”!
