Dr. Michael J. Cafarella, DMD

Dr. Cafarella received his B.A. in Psychology from Boston College, and his D.M.D. from Tufts University School of Dental Medicine. He then completed four more years of advanced training at Montefiore Medical Center/Albert Einstein College of Medicine, earning his certificate in Prosthodontics. He is currently Board Eligible.

Dr. Michael Cafarella is a member of the ADA, the American College of Prosthodontics (ACP), the Academy of Osseointegration (AO) and the Northeast Gnathological Society (NGS).

Dr. Cafarella’s primary passion is his love for the art and science of dentistry. However, his interests and training go beyond the dental office. Dr. Cafarella is a long time practitioner in various martial arts. He earned his second degree black belt in traditional Shotokan karate and was team captain and instructor during his college years. More recently, he has expanded his interest to the study of Judo and Aikido. Training in this manner has helped him develop an appreciation for the strong mind-body connection.

Dr. Cafarella’s favorite idiom learned in martial arts training is tan ren, meaning “to forge” and “to polish”. This phrase literally refers to the traditional and meticulous sword making techniques of feudal Japan, but in practice, it elucidates the importance of hard work and repetition to develop skill. Dr. Cafarella acknowledges this challenge daily.
