Dr. Hasler completed her undergraduate studies at Princeton University, earning a BA in Psychology in 2013. She then graduated magna cum laude from the Harvard School of Dental Medicine where she was invited into the Omicron Kappa Upsilon National Dental Honor Society. Most recently, she received a certificate in pediatric dentistry from Boston Children’s Hospital and the Harvard School of Dental Medicine.
Dr. Hasler believes dentistry is just as much about building relationships as it is about science and medicine. As a pediatric dentist, she feels fortunate to have the opportunity to not only care for, but also to build lifelong relationships with children and their families. Her goals are to deliver quality, ethical, and evidence-based clinical care and to develop confidence in her young patients.

Fillings, Crowns, Extractions
Dental fillings consist of a variety of metals, plastics, glass, or other materials that are used to repair or restore teeth. The filling is used to fill in the removed area of tooth where there was once decay, also known as a cavity. Fillings are also performed on broken, cracked, or worn-down teeth. The purpose of placing a filling is to save the tooth that was previously infected with decay and to restore the tooth’s structural integrity.
A dental crown may be needed to cover a tooth to restore its shape, size, strength. A crown fully encases a tooth to the gum line to protect a weak tooth from breaking, restore an already broken tooth or prevent further problems.
Children whose teeth have been damaged by decay that can’t support a filling may require a crown to protect the tooth from further damage and infection. The gold standard for a molar crown in a child is the stainless-steel crown. It is strong and compatible with the body. On front teeth, crowns are made with a tooth-colored composite filling material.
Dental extractions, also known as removal of teeth, are performed when a tooth is beyond repair due to trauma or decay. Dental extractions are performed to prevent further infection or prevent infection from occurring. Occasionally extractions are performed to help with overcrowding of the teeth.
