Meet Dr. Sara Furino

It’s hard to get more “Connecticut” than Dr. Sara Furino. Born and raised in Madison, she graduated from Trinity College in Hartford with a degree in Biology. Then, she earned her DMD from the University of Connecticut School of Dental Medicine — and completed her residency in 2011 at Hartford Hospital.

“That was excellent medical training,” she says. “It allowed me to immerse myself in a very interesting, challenging environment where I was able to rotate through departments and work hands-on with a variety of surgeons.”

It’s obvious challenging situations aren’t something Dr. Furino avoids. Instead, she seeks them out — one reason why she became a dentist. “I love dentistry because of the constant challenges it presents,” she says. “You have to be ready to come up with creative solutions for all kinds of issues. Every patient is different, with their own unique needs.”

Those unique needs — and caring for them — are why she was drawn to Cromwell Dental. “It’s important to find the right treatment for every patient,” Dr. Furino says. “And here, I have more tools and technologies to choose from, allowing me to better tailor treatments to each patient. I really appreciate how critical patient-specific dentistry is to Cromwell Dental...the first priority is always the best possible experience for our patients.”

When she’s not providing the best possible care, Dr. Furino can often be found hunting down the best possible food with her husband, who she’s known since elementary school. “We’re huge foodies,” she says. “We’re always seeking out new restaurants and dishes we’ve heard about, both in Connecticut and in New York City.”

What can patients expect from Dr. Furino? “Oh, I think all my patients know they can ask me anything...there’s no such thing as a dumb question. I want everyone I care for to make the best possible decision for them and their life, and that means getting all the information and answers they need to be completely comfortable. I’m just here to help them get there.”



Untreated dental disease can lead to serious long-term problems. The American Dental Association recommends all adults and children visit a dentist every six months. Whether you're a current or future client we hope to see you soon!
