After 25 years in private practice, Dr. Maria Meliton still has a passion for being a pediatric dentist to Lancaster County infants, children, and teens. Her dental practice, M2 Dentistry for Children & Teens, has locations in East Hempfield Township and Gap.
Dr. Meliton received her undergraduate degree from the University of Pittsburgh, and continued her education for her dental degree at the University of Pittsburgh School of Dental Medicine. She completed a pediatric dental residency at the Eastman Institute for Oral Health in Rochester, New York. She is a Board-Certified Diplomate of the American Board of Pediatric Dentistry and is a Fellow of the American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry.
Dr. Meliton and her dental team take pride in being attentive and available for their many patients. They provide the most up-to-date dentistry in a state-of-the-art facility, but maintain the values of how practices operated many years ago. Their goal is to create lasting relationships with the patients and their families. While corporate dentistry is now becoming the norm, M2 is moving in the other direction to make the experience more personable and tailored for each individual child. The child is never a number and the parent always has an opportunity to talk to the doctor at every visit.
Dr. Meliton stated, “I never want to lose sight of what brought me to dentistry in the first place: the kids. As a practitioner, the connections with my patients are the most valuable and important. I think there are plenty of parents out there who want this type of dental practice for their children.”
