Dr. Heather Coubrough was born in Michigan and raised in Troy, a suburb of Detroit. One of her first full-time jobs was working at an orthodontist’s office during her high school years. It was there that she came to love the field and began to set her sights on a career in dental medicine. While her path was not direct, it was purposeful and driven by a passion for the craft.
With her goal of becoming a general dentist and owning her own practice in mind, Dr. Coubrough earned her BS in Business Administration from Boston University in 2002, completed a post-baccalaureate program at Harvard to attain her prerequisites for Dental school in 2005, and graduated from Tufts University School of Dental Medicine in 2010. She has been a practicing general dentist in Boston’s Back Bay for the past five years and will complete her Masters and Fellowship with Academy of General Dentistry in 2018. She is now a proud member of our practice and is training with Dr. Longo to better understand the complexities of biomechanics of the chewing system.
Dr. Coubrough is a member of the American Dental Association and the Academy of General Dentistry. Outside of the office she enjoys the outdoors, especially skiing with her family.
