About Us

We aim to provide excellent oral health care in a relaxing, exciting, and fun atmosphere.  By introducing and providing the means and knowledge of maintaining a healthy mouth, we strive to keep our patients cavity free throughout the years.  It is important to us to create a tailored approach for each child based on their unique needs.

Ultimately, we treat our patients like we would treat our families.  In doing so, we hope to get to know our patients as people and welcome them into our office family.

Meet Our Staff

Dr. Toni Hacek Russo, DMD

Dr. Toni is very excited to be serving the community of Enfield and its surrounding towns. A native of Chicago, she grew up playing “dentist” in her family’s kitchen pantry and had a close cousin who influenced her career choice. During college, she landed a job with a pediatric dentist in Chicago who introduced her to a career that she would eventually become very passionate about.

After finishing undergraduate studies at Loyola University Chicago, she attended University of Connecticut School of Dental Medicine. Following dental school, she specialized in pediatric dentistry at the University of Illinois at Chicago for two years. Dr. Toni is board-certified, an active member in local and national pediatric dental associations, and enjoys community outreach.

She currently lives in Suffield, CT with her husband who is a general dentist in Hampden, MA. They enjoy sports, running, and travelling-especially to Chicago to visit her family.

Our Hygienists

Gerry, Linda, and Pam bring over 60 years of combined experience in pediatric dentistry to Enfield Pediatric Dentistry. As the people your children see most in the dental office, they strive to truly get to know each child as an individual. Through regular dental visits, their primary goals are to educate and maintain your child’s oral health care. They tailor each child’s at-home approach to oral care based on your child’s individual needs.

Our Front Office Staff

Sherry and Kelly provide the first welcoming smile to our practice.  They strive to assist you in making appointments, answering insurance questions, and discussing customized treatment plans for your children.  Please do not hesitate to ask them any questions you may have.

He works closely with Dr. Toni to explain things to your child at their level of understanding. He brings 10 years of experience in pediatric dentistry in our office.
