At Northfield Pediatric Dentistry, Dr. Rosalyn Shkolnikov, or “Dr. Roz” as she’s most commonly known to her patients, makes each visit so much more than just “going to the dentist.” Dr. Roz is a board-certified pediatric dentist who has made a lifelong commitment to provide the highest quality of specialized dental care for children in a fun, comfortable environment. She believes that setting children up with a positive experience at the dental office is an essential first step in establishing a lifetime of good habits.

Dr. Roz was born and raised in Boston, where she completed her Bachelor of Science degree at the University of Massachusetts – Amherst Honors College and was the founder and president of the university’s dental society. She obtained her doctoral degree from the prestigious University of Pennsylvania School of Dental Medicine. From there, she continued to pursue additional training at NYU Langone Hospital, where she graduated from general and pediatric dental residency. Upon graduation, Dr. Roz relocated to Denver with her husband where they welcomed their first baby girl, Noa.
