Dr. Shnaydman's path to the founding of Blackstone Endodontics began with her interest in helping patients who experience toothache. After getting her B.S. in biophysics from Brandeis University, she attended the University of Connecticut School of Dental Medicine and obtained her D.M.D. Returning to the Boston area, she practiced general dentistry for seven years. But, in that time she began more and more to be drawn to the specialty of endodontics. The ability to preserve patients’ natural teeth, the delicacy of the work, and more than anything the deep satisfaction of helping provide relief to patients in pain, led her to go back to school to get her certificate in Endodontics. She did this in 2008, returning to the University of Connecticut School of Dental Medicine to complete an endodontic residency. She also received a Masters in Dental Science degree.
Dr. Shnaydman has practiced endodontics all throughout New England, from Londonderry, New Hampshire to North Providence, Rhode Island. Establishing Blackstone Endodontics is the fulfillment of a dream to provide patient-centered care to those in need of endodontic therapies. She feels that her years as a general dentist allow her to work in close collaboration with patients’ own dentists to provide the best possible care and outcomes in a calm, patient-friendly environment. She prides herself on easy, unhurried communication with both patients and dentists, and strives to answer any and all questions to help inform patients and achieve the best outcomes.
Dr. Shnaydman is an assistant clinical professor in endodontics at the Tufts University School of Dental Medicine where she has been teaching endodontic residents for the last five years. She has also lectured at Yankee Dental Conference on the topic of non-odontogenic pain. Professional organizations she belongs to include:
Dr. Shnaydman and her husband have two young children. In her free time, she enjoys spending time with her family at the beach, curling up with a good mystery, and traveling to wonderful locales such as a recent trip to Iceland.
