The Best Defense is a Good Offense


This adage has been applied to myriad endeavors including games, military strategy and even your dental health – just ask the Boston Red Sox.

In March, Steven D. Spitz, DMD, pictured above with baseball greats Luis Tiant, David Ortiz and Jim Rice, traveled to Ft. Meyers for Boston Red Sox spring training at jetBlue Park. While Dr. Spitz is an avid baseball fan, he was not in Florida to watch the pre-season games. He spent his time providing dental exams to players and coaches before the start of their grueling season.

As the dentist on record for the Boston Red Sox with the Academy for Sports Dentistry, Dr. Spitz, founder of Smileboston Cosmetic and Implant Dentistry understands how important regular dental care can be including regular brushing, flossing and hygiene visits for professional cleaning. However, prevention is key. At the park, dental assessments including checking for cavities, wisdom teeth issues, and oral cancer checks help prevent and catch dental issues before they become serious and keep players out of the game.

Smileboston Cosmetic and Implant Dentistry has been making patients smile for almost 20 years and has offices in Brookline and Pembroke, MA. Dr. Spitz leads a practice built on a foundation of high-quality care, cutting edge technology and patient comfort. Two prosthodontists and an endodontist are part of a five dentist team offering dental services including general dentistry, cosmetic procedures and complete smile makeovers.
