  • EVETTA SHWARTZMAN

    D.M.D. / L.V.I.F. / FIACA

    Like Dr. Ronkin, Dr. Evetta Shwartzman came to the United States from a former republic of the Soviet Union. Born in Riga, Latvia, she practiced dentistry there for 5 years before immigrating to America in 1989. Now a resident of Sharon, Dr. Shwartzman looks back at her decision with no regrets. Challenged by a system that often left her office without essential technology and supplies, she sought to give her patients what they deserved - the best. Now that she is stateside, she is able to deliver the best.

    Dr. Shwartzman graduated from the Tufts School of Dental Medicine in Boston, where she met her future partner, Konstantin Ronkin. Together, they have ambitiously built the practice that is now Dream Smile Dental. Just as committed to cutting-edge technology and continuing education as Dr. Ronkin, Dr. Shwartzman was the driving force behind becoming the first practice in New England to offer the only FDA-approved tooth whitening procedure. She has also invested in advanced education at the Las Vegas Institute for Advanced Dental Studies to ensure that she is providing her patients with the best dental care possible.

    "I just like giving people beautiful smiles," she says. Say no more.

TESTIMONIALS

All of my life, the financial needs of my children and my business took precedence over my own personal desires. One of these was to improve the appearance of my smile. Once my children were grown and my business had sold, I decided that it was time to do something special just for me.

I was confident that my expectations would be met because of my positive experience with Dr. Ronkin. Honestly, when I first sat with Dr. Ronkin, my one and only fear was if it was going to be all worth it.

What our Patients are Saying

Front desk people were awesome as usual. Courtney the hygienist is always great too. Pushed me to go have something on my lip looked at which proved to be pre cancer that needs to be removed.

LZ 3-26-13

Dr. Barton was great with my son. He let him "play" with some of the instruments before actually using them so that made my son feel more comfortable. My son, at age three, loves going to the dentist and hopefully this will continue.

CC 11-7-12

Courtney Wager was excellent......she had a thorough understanding of my Son's needs. She also advised me to seek a total diagnosis with an ENT doctor. She was looking at the whole condition (tongue-thrust swallow) not just her speciality. Great experience over all!

RL 11-4-12

Ever since I have been coming to Dream Smile I have had nothing but great experiences. All the employees are very professional and cater to your every need, especially Nicole.

EDC 7-28-11

My visit, from start to the end, was great. When I do have the work done on my tooth, I would prefer the dentist that was on duty that day, as he took the time to explain things to me about the tooth. Also, special thanks to the girls behind the desk who were patient and extremely nice as my Delta Dental Plan was being determined.
