Her goal in dentistry is “to help patients achieve the smile that gives them confidence when they interact with their friends, family and workplace. I want people to feel good about their health and know that they are being treated with the care and attention that I would extend to my family. I want every patient to feel like we respect their time and that we strive to keep their appointments fast, efficient and on-point.”
Dr. Salatino is also a professional musician who plays guitar and bass for the rock band Some Fear None. She also finds time to record music under her solo artist name, STERYK.
