Dr. Luba Richter is a highly regarded specialist in the field of orthodontics. A graduate of Tufts University School of Dental Medicine and University of Rochester Eastman Dental Center, her education and passion for orthodontics began in her native city of St. Petersburg, Russia. There, Dr. Richter established one of the first private orthodontic clinics and assisted in training graduate dental students as a faculty member.
Coming to the United States more than 20 years ago, Dr. Richter elected to further her education. She published orthodontic research, and conducted multiple continuing-education courses for dentists and orthodontists.
Dr. Savusalo (“Dr. Kirsi” as we call her) joined us in the summer of 2016 and works in our clinic on most Mondays. She has been a wonderful addition to our team. Our patients and staff enjoy Dr. Kirsi’s warm, inviting personality and wealth of experience.
Dr. Kirsi is a graduate with honors of Boston University Goldman School of Dental Medicine and University of Oulu Institute of Dental Medicine, Finland.
Dr. McLellan has a great sense of humor, and he takes great care of our patients whenever life takes Dr. Richter away from the office!
Dr. McLellan’s educational foundation includes a bachelor’s degree in Chemistry and Ph.D. in Molecular Biology. He received his DMD degree from the University of Connecticut School of Dental Medicine and went on to complete his Certificate of Orthodontics and Dentofacial Orthopedics at the University of Rochester Eastman Dental Center.
