Who is Dr. Tooth Fairy?

Dr. Donna Balaski’s broad based career encompasses positions in the field of dental medicine.  Her passion for dental medicine has its roots originating early in her childhood.  Her passion is complimented through her formal education, which includes the University of Connecticut for her B.S. and D.M.D. degrees with further training in the specialty of Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery at Emory University and later Catholic Medical Center in Brooklyn, New York. 

Dr. Balaski came to the Department of Social Services in February 2004 to begin work on the dental program.  In 2008, along with BeneCare Dental Plans and the Connecticut State Dental Association (CSDA and other community colleagues), the Connecticut Dental Health Partnership (CTDHP) was formed. The CTDHP’s mission is to restore good oral health to all Members of the program.
