Dr. D’Andrea is humbled and grateful to be part of the Wilton Community! Her dream was to create a small-town, neighborhood practice, much like the childhood dentist that inspired her and was where she worked as a teenager. She grew up in Newark, Delaware, where spent her summers picking crabs and was a competitive swimmer through college.
She received her Doctor of Dental Surgery degree from the Virginia Commonwealth University School of Dentistry. While there, she served as her class secretary and participated in several community outreach programs throughout rural Virginia, where she performed oral cancer screenings and education. She then completed an advanced education in general dentistry residency at the University of Maryland College of Dentistry. Dr. D’Andrea also completed a fellowship at the University of Washington School of Dentistry to treat patients with special needs and disabilities. She also taught dental assisting at Delaware Technical Community College.
Dr. D’Andrea has spent the last decade dedicating time to enhancing her knowledge and skill in all aspects of dentistry, with a focus on cosmetic dentistry, airway health and TMJ. She has taken courses at the prestigious Spear Institute and is a certified Invisalign® provider. She completed a mini residency in pediatric sleep disordered breathing and airway with Dr. Ben Miraglia — a leading educator on the subject. She recently completed a one-year aesthetics program at the New York University College of Dentistry in advanced cosmetic techniques and is currently participating in a five-year master track program to earn a fellowship with the Academy of General Dentistry.
A sustaining member of the American Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry (AACD), the Academy of General Dentistry (AGD) and the American Academy of Sleep Medicine, and she actively participates in the Connecticut State Dental Association (CSDA) and local study clubs, including membership with the Seattle Study Club.
Her philosophy is to treat the WHOLE person with a holistic approach that is founded on science. Dr. D’Andrea has taken extensive courses on TMJ and how it relates to sleep apnea and overall cognitive wellness.
Driven by a love of people and a deep sense of responsibility to serve those in need, she runs a dental clinic in Haiti every year with Hearts and Hands for Haiti. She has also provided dental care in the Dominican Republic with the Mariposa Foundation, an organization that empowers and educates girls.
Her loyal patients describe her as incredibly kind, compassionate and thorough, and she believes “life is too short not to smile.”
In her free time, she loves to do yoga and trail run. She is a mom of three amazing daughters: Mattia, Claire and Heidi.
