A radiant smile can often reveal more about someone than a thousand words ~ it can say “I am confident, self-assured, open, friendly, welcoming and happy.” These are all positive feelings that Dr. Elisa Liberto, a doctor of dental medicine, loves to engender in her patients. As a dentist who is celebrating her 25th year in private practice this year, there is nothing that brings her more fulfillment that seeing her clients smile with confidence and pride, knowing that a healthy mouth is evidence of a healthy lifestyle and a commitment to one’s overall health and well-being.
There is something very familiar and immediately welcoming about Dr. Elisa Liberto, a quality that allows her patients to feel a personal relationship with her and trust that are not often associated with dentists. Dr. Liberto is quite simply passionate about dentistry and about her patients . . . and it shows. A lifelong Rhode Islander who has raised her family here, she regards her patients as so much more than a sum of their teeth, but rather as unique individuals who deserve only her finest care and expertise. She is deeply committed to raising awareness about the importance of oral health, from the youngest to the oldest among us.
Dr.Liberto is also not your average dentist. She is one of only 5% of all dentists in Rhode Island who have the distinction of having received her Fellowship in the Academy of General Dentistry. Fellows of the AGD are required to maintain an active membership in the Academy of General Dentistry, to complete 500 hours of continuing education, and to pass a comprehensive examination. Dr. Liberto is deservedly proud of this fellowship. It is a testament to her devotion to the profession and to her commitment to remaining viable in an ever-changing field. She remains active in many other dental associations, and stays abreast of changes and advancements in the practice of dentistry.
Dr.Liberto’s practice offers a wide range of dental services and procedures, from complete exams and cleanings to full-mouth restoration and even oral cancer screenings. Restoration procedures include porcelain veneers, crowns and fixed bridges, cosmetic dentistry, dental implants, composite fillings and root canal therapy. Dr. Liberto and her team of dedicated hygienists and assistants are strong advocates of preventive measures and timely dental hygiene, along with the ongoing maintenance of oral health. They also use Digital Radiography, a state-of-the art technology that actually reduces radiation exposure by 70%.
