Dental Alums, Clinic Practice Through Pandemic

Despite the challenges of COVID-19 on caregivers and health practitioners everywhere, one Pitt School of Dental Medicine alumna is treating patients who desperately need dental care.

Maria Tacelosky (DEN ’93) is a general dentist in Berwick, Pennsylvania. She was recently featured in “The Daily Item,” a newspaper in the Commonwealth’s Central Susquehanna Valley.

“Seeing patients being grateful and saying ‘You won’t believe how much that (dental problem) hurt,’ it makes your day knowing you make a difference for even one person. It touches your heart,” she said.

Pitt Dental Medicine’s clinic is also offering emergency dental services. Read more about that work in the University Times.
