Dr. Maryam Hamdan, DMD

Health-Focused General Dentist

Dr. Maryam Hamdan has had a passion for dentistry since she was in high school. She shadowed her family dentist and realized she wanted to pursue dentistry as her career. She received a Bachelors in Dental Surgery from Pakistan in 2011, where she began her career. It was when she moved to Arizona, that she developed interest in biological dentistry. While working at a biological dental office in Phoenix, she built a foundation in biological dentistry concepts.

While in Phoenix, Dr. Maryam built on another passion of hers ~ teaching. While working at a dental office during the day, she would spend her nights teaching aspiring dental assistants as a part-time professor at a local college. She trained students in both theory and clinical settings, while fostering a positive, fun learning environment.

After gaining experience in Phoenix, Dr Maryam decided to go back to school, and earned a DMD from Tufts University School of Dental Medicine. While at Tufts, she spent countless hours honing her surgical skills in the Implant center and Oral Surgery Department, performing complicated extractions, and learning cutting edge surgical procedures. She also lead a community service program in affiliation with bridge over troubled waters to set up a dental clinic where dental students provided free dental care to homeless, runaway, and at-risk youth.

Dr. Maryam joined Groton Wellness as an Associate Dentist. She is keen on promoting to her patients that oral health goes hand in hand with overall health. It’s important to take into consideration all aspects of our health, not just our teeth. She enjoys working with patients of all ages and backgrounds as she strives to develop a patient doctor relationship based on trust and respect. In addition to general dentistry, she has special interest in oral surgery and prosthodontics and continues advanced training in those fields.

On a side note, Dr Maryam loves the outdoors and enjoy all water sports, especially swimming. She and her husband have visited and hiked in over twelve national parks and counting.
