ARCH Pediatric Dentistry is Here

Even More Care For Small Smiles in Greater Boston

ARCH Orthodontics of Greater Boston is proud to announce that we now offer pediatric dental care in our Stoughton office! It all starts with Dr. Karissa Koster, the first Pediatric Dentist to join the ARCH team.

We love Dr. Koster because she’s passionate, personable, and precise when it comes to helping children feel safe and even have fun during their dental visits – no matter what age.

The entire ARCH Orthodontics team is thrilled to have her on board, says Dr. Andrew Chase. “Adding Pediatric Dentistry complements our service and expands the options we’ve provided to patients of all ages since 1974. Now, under one roof, we offer a weather of specialized training in caring for young, developing smiles,” says Dr. Chase. “During these important years, a specialist can make positive, vital changes to your child’s total health and help develop their wonderful unique smile. Children and adolescents continue to benefit from the best and most appropriate and friendly care – conveniently.”

Get To Know Dr. Koster

Dr. Koster is a Massachusetts native who earned her undergraduate degree in biology from Stonehill College, before earning her dental credentials from Tufts University School of Dental Medicine. Dr. Koster was Chief Resident during her Pediatric Dental Residency at NYU Lutheran Medical Center in Holyoke. She completed the program in 2015 before earning her certification from the American Board of Pediatric Dentistry a year later.

She developed an interest in dentistry at a young age, thanks to orthodontics and having to wear braces. Dr. Koster says, “The day I got my braces at age 10, I was amazed at how the orthodontist could fix my smile. From that day, I knew dentistry was for me and I worked hard to make that dream come true. I enjoy focusing on preventive care to help each child gain a healthy smile that will last a lifetime. And when needed for consultation, it’s great having orthodontic colleagues in the same office. So convenient for parents, too. My favorite days are when a young, nervous patient comes in, learns to trust me, and leaves with a new outlook and excitement about the dentist. That is the biggest reward.”

Dr. Koster previously provided pediatric dental care to patients on the South Shore and is a member of the American Dental Association and the American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry. Along with the rest of the ARCH team, she has extensive experience working with special needs patients. Outside of the office, she enjoys being with her family, spending time with friends, exploring new places, hiking, working out, cooking, and baking.
