Devitre, DMDGeneral Dentist
Dr. Adrina DeVitre grew up watching her parents, both dentists, caring for patients. From the age of 11, she’d go into the office with her mother on weekends and assist in small ways. It was then she began noticing and appreciating the delicate touch required for dental work and the compassion her mother had for her patients. At 14, she began helping out on the administrative side, where she developed a sense of responsibility and professionalism that she carried with her into her own career. Before long, Dr. DeVitre came to realize the dental field was more than just the family business—it became her passion.
Dr. DeVitre received her Bachelor’s Degree in 2008 in French and Pre-Dental Sciences from Columbia University. She went on to earn her Doctor of Dental Medicine in 2012 from Tufts University School of Dental Medicine, where she graduated summa cum laude. While at Tufts, she received the American Academy of Oral Medicine Merit Award and was inducted into Omicron Kappa Upsilon, the Dental Honor Society. Dr. DeVitre was on the Dean’s List for her performance on the national boards and was selected to work as a teacher’s assistant on the clinical floor.
In 2013, Dr. DeVitre continued her dental education by completing an Advanced Education in General Dentistry residency program at Boston University. During her residency, Dr. DeVitre received the Clinical Excellence Award, which is given annually to “the graduate student who best exemplifies excellence in character and clinical proficiency.”
This extra year of postgraduate education allows her to successfully perform more complex restorative, cosmetic, and endodontic cases. Currently, Dr. DeVitre is an active member of the American Dental Association, the Massachusetts Dental Society, OKU Dental Honor Society, and the Tufts Dental School Alumni Association. Dr. DeVitre appreciates being in Boston, where the continuing education opportunities are plentiful. She is a certified Invisalign Provider and looks forward to using this conservative therapy to comprehensively treat her patients.
As a former professional ballet dancer with the Boston Ballet, Dr. DeVitre prides herself in bringing a high degree of care, precision, and artistry to her work. She has always felt comfortable working with her hands and finds the unique combination of art and science that defines dentistry fascinating. Ultimately, the relationships she creates with her patients are most important to her. She finds it rewarding when she helps someone who was initially fearful of the dentist become a patient who looks forward to his or her visits. Remaking smiles and giving people the gift of confidence through their appearance is a joy for her.
Born and raised in Cohasset, Dr. DeVitre currently lives in Boston with her husband, Shaz (also a doctor), and their two young children, Sabine and Aram. In her spare time, she loves to seek out fun family activities around the Boston area, try out new recipes at home, explore new restaurants, learn about new cultures through travel, and nurture her love of yoga and dance.
