Dr. Grace CreechOrthodontist
Dr. Creech is a Board Certified orthodontist. She was born and raised in North Carolina, yet considers herself a New Englander, having now resided for 26 years in the greater Boston area. She graduated from the School of the Museum of Fine Arts at Tufts University in 2000, Tufts’ DMD program in 2017, and then completed Tufts’ Orthodontic residency in 2019. While at Tufts School of Dental Medicine, she was awarded several endowed merit scholarships as well as the Bates-Andrews Basic Science Research Award. She was also inducted into the Honos Civicus Society and the Omicron Kappa Upsilon National Dental Honor Society.
Her path to dental medicine has been atypical. She spent nearly a decade between degrees as a filmmaker and portrait artist while continuing her education in math and science at Harvard. It was her propensity towards studying the human face and her growing interest in medicine that led her to the specialty of Orthodontics.
Dr. Creech is pleased to be at a pediatric practice where she is able to monitor patients’ skeletal growth and dental development from an early age and offer interceptive treatments when there is a need. Dr. Creech enjoys giving each patient a generous amount of chair-side time. It’s this quality time and the ongoing rapport with patients and their families — learning about their schooling, extracurricular activities, and recent whereabouts — that makes her eager to come into the office each morning.
Dr. Creech is an active member of the American Association of Orthodontists, the American Association for Women Dentists, the American Dental Association, and the Massachusetts Dental Society. In her free time, she enjoys playing violin and piano, cooking, playing tennis and most of all, taking woodland walks with her partner Kip and their dog Jackjack!
