After reading all the great reviews online about Sweet Tooth, I switched my kids from their previous dentist so they could come see Dr. Erica. I'm so glad we did, because we all love it!

Dr. Erica has really impressed me with her ability to manage tough toddlers in the dental environment. She has a knack for Pediatric Dentistry, that's for sure.

Biography

Dr. Erica Pitera, or Dr. Erica as she goes by in the office, grew up locally in Cromwell, CT and graduated from Cromwell High School. She went on to receive her BS in biology from Duke University. She earned her DMD at the University of Connecticut School of Dental Medicine and was awarded for achievement in dental care for patients with special needs and for her leadership in the American Student Dental Association. Dr. Erica then completed a two-year specialty residency program in pediatric dentistry at Columbia University/New York Presbyterian Hospital. Dr. Erica is a board certified pediatric dentist who specializes in providing comprehensive oral care to all pediatric and adolescent patients. In addition to her many professional memberships, she is also a Diplomate of the American Board of Pediatric Dentistry and a member of the medical staff at Connecticut Children’s Medical Center in Hartford. She values continuing education and strives to stay up to date with all the latest dental treatments and techniques. Growing up with a brother with special needs, Dr. Erica has developed a great deal of patience and understanding for helping children of all abilities. From a young age she knew she wanted to be a pediatric dentist so she could help children like her brother have a positive dental experience. She prides herself in providing quality care in a friendly and special way, and strives to make visits to the dentist fun for all kids. Beyond dentistry and caring for children, another one of Dr. Erica’s passions is baking. Although this is a bit ironic for a dentist, she has always used baking as an expression of her artistic side and, of course, to satisfy her “sweet tooth”. She teaches children to maintain a healthy lifestyle, while still being able to have a special treat once in a while! Some of her sweet creations can be found on her popular baking blog – Erica’s Sweet Tooth. Dr. Erica resides locally in Higganum with her husband Ryan and adorable Bernese Mountain Dog, Piper. She can’t wait to meet you and your family at their next visit!
