Get to Know Paola A. Buckley, DMD, CAGS, DSc
Dr. Paola Buckley received her DDS from El Bosque University in Bogotá, Colombia in 2000. She practiced as a general dentist in her native Bogota while serving as a Teaching Associate and Researcher in Periodontal Microbiology for her school’s department of Oral Microbiology. Her love for periodontal research brought her to the United States to pursue a research opportunity at the prestigious Forsyth Institute in Boston, MA and later earning her Doctor of Science Degree in Oral Biology at the Boston University, Henry M. Goldman School of Dental Medicine in 2008. During her postdoctoral years she published several peer reviewed articles about periodontal disease biology.
But it was her love for patient care and education which motivated her to incorporate her knowledge of the periodontology basic sciences into a fulfilling clinical practice. She dedicated herself into pursuing additional training and completed a two year specialty program in Clinical Periodontology and Implantology at the Henry M. Goldman School of Dental Medicine and a DMD program designed for international trained dentists at the same University.
