Welcome to Chestnut Dental!  We are Pediatric, Orthodontic & Adult Dental Specialists.

We love our patients! We opened in Needham in 1970, and we now proudly serve the communities surrounding Needham, Franklin, and Bedford, Massachusetts.

In 1978 we were the first practice in Massachusetts with a dual-trained pediatric dentist and orthodontist. Today we are known for the coordination of care between our pediatric, orthodontic, and adult dental specialists.  We also maintain a close relationship with Boston Children's Hospital and the Harvard School of Dental Medicine, where many of our doctors were trained and teach when not seeing patients at Chestnut Dental. All of our pediatric and orthodontic doctors received additional training to care for your children and are board-certified or board eligible.

Our patients benefit from our highly trained dental specialists who care for and educate them on the most up-to-date dental health and preventative care techniques for each stage of life, from infancy to adulthood.

Business Review

"I have been a patient of Chestnut Dental for over 15 years, starting in their Needham practice. I was thrilled when I heard they had opened a Bedford office. The location has terrific access from the Bedford and Burlington office parks. Dr. Jin and Dr. Strakus have both been wonderful and I am very happy with the care I have received with regards to cleanings, fillings and taking care of a cracked tooth." ~ Brian Kurowski, Google review, September 2019

"Dr McCafferty and her staff have been so gentle and caring and patient with my 3 year old. So happy to have them in Bedford!" ~ Wendy Lentine, Google review, August 2019

"Amazing experience with Dr. McCafferty! My daughter had 3 cavities of which one very large one. We called in and she could be seen on the same day and treated the week after. Dr McCafferty explained exactly what she would be doing to my daughter, and was able to get her fully relaxed for the dental work. In my daughter's own words: "Dr, are you done already? I didn't feel a thing". The venue is great also: modern, lots of light, large spaces. We are very happy. Highly recommended for pediatric dentistry." ~ Geert Jansen, Google review, June 2017
