Philosophy of Care

I believe that oral health is essential to a child's overall health. I strive to help families and children receive personalized dental care by combining research evidence with clinical expertise and my patients' and families' preferences. Through partnership and education, I hope to empower my patients and their families to create a lasting impact on their oral health.

PROFESSIONAL HISTORY

Dr. Sulyanto received her D.M.D. degree from Harvard School of Dental Medicine in 2011. While at Harvard, she conducted research on bone development as a Howard Hughes Medical Institute Fellow. She completed her residency in pediatric dentistry at Nationwide Children’s Hospital/The Ohio State University and was a recipient of the 3M ESPE Preventive Pediatric Dentistry Postdoctoral Research Fellowship, the Graduate Student Research Award, and the Ralph E MacDonald Award, and was awarded a Master’s Degree in Dentistry. In 2014, she joined the faculty at Boston Children’s Hospital and Harvard School of Dental Medicine, became the Director of Post-Doctoral Research at Boston Children’s Hospital in 2017, and is currently an Assistant Professor of Developmental Biology. Her research focuses on the prevention of early childhood caries and the oral microbiome, and has been supported by several intramural and extramural grants. Dr. Sulyanto has authored numerous original manuscripts, book chapters, and reviews, including guidelines from professional societies. Clinically, she treats infants, children, adolescents, and individuals with special healthcare needs. She is a Diplomate of the American Board of Pediatric Dentistry and a Fellow of the American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry.
