Dr. Paola Buckley received her DDS degree from El Bosque University in Bogotá, Colombia, in 2000. She practiced as a general dentist in her native Bogotá 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. She later earned 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.

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 internationally-trained dentists at the same university.

Dr. Buckley is very passionate about periodontology and dental implantology and is always current on the latest techniques and treatment services. She attends multiple professional meetings throughout the year and is an active member of the American Academy of Periodontology, American Dental Association, Massachusetts Dental Society and the Hispanic Dental Association. She is committed to providing excellent dental care to all patients.

Dr. Buckley enjoys spending time with her husband, Joe, their son, Matthew (Mateo), and their pets (Mitsy, Shea, and Maddie) in their home in Natick and their beach house in Wells, Maine.
