Meet Dr. Olutayo Odusanwo (Dr. Tayo)

Dr Tayo

Dr. Olutayo “Tayo” Odusanwo obtained her first dental degree in Nigeria in 2005, during which time she cofounded a mobile dental clinic “Dentists on Wheels”; to help educate, screen and refer indigent elementary school children for dental conditions.

After dental school, she moved to Glasgow, Scotland to study for a Masters degree in Molecular Biology, conducting research on the physiology of horse sweat glands. The itinerant scholar subsequently relocated to the State University of New York at Buffalo NY to continue her research on salivary glands, receiving another Master of Science degree.

Dr. Tayo was accepted to Boston University School of Dental Medicine in 2013, earning her DMD with High Honors and was inducted into the Omicron Kappa Upsilon Dental Honor Society. While at BU, she served as a Big Sister of Greater Boston, mentoring an 8-year-old at one of the local elementary schools.

Dr. Odusanwo has completed residencies in General and Pediatric Dentistry from NYU Langone Hospitals where she received exceptional training whilst providing care to the under-served and uninsured, and conducting community dental outreaches to the local public schools in Central and Western Massachusetts.

Additionally, Dr. Tayo teaches NYU Langone pediatric dental residents at the Providence Community Health Center.

In her leisure time, she enjoys spending time with her 7 nephews and nieces, cooking, amateur kick-boxing and binge watching tv.

Dr. Jackie St. Pierre (Dr. Jackie)

Dr. Jackie St. Pierre completed her dental degree from Boston University and spent the first few years of her career treating patients of all ages in community health centers in Boston. She focused on increasing access to care for children and also completed her Master’s Degree in Public Health. She realized that she both enjoyed and had the greatest impact working with the pediatric population so she decided to complete her pediatric training with NYU Langone in Western Massachusetts and served as chief resident in her final year.

Dr. Jackie is a big advocate for the age one dental visit and focuses on helping her patients develop healthy habits. She strives to make the dental office a positive place for children of all ages and abilities and also has experience treating patients in a hospital setting.
