Dr. Van Orenstein grew up right here in Newton. His training allowed him to see the country from coast to coast, and after all that, he realized that Boston is a kind place and returned home. After attending Newton North High School and the University of Vermont, he completed his dental degree at the University of Pennsylvania and his pediatric dental specialty at UCLA. Despite living in the Sunshine State for 5 years, Dr. Van returned so that a hometown kid could serve his community.
Dr. Van Orenstein is a Diplomate of the American Board of Pediatric Dentistry. He is one of a small number of pediatric dentists to complete this additional degree of recognized excellence in pediatric dentistry. Additionally, his two year residency in pediatric dentistry gave him extensive experience working with children and adolescents with special needs, sedation dentistry, state of the art technology, and the most up to date research in the field.
