Dr. Wagner grew up in a quiet town in the Berkshires of western Massachusetts, and has always been called Rosi. She was introduced to dentistry from the very beginning. Her father is a dentist and her mother manages the dental office, so Dr. Wagner spent afternoons filing patient records and developing radiographs. She learned how important it was to communicate well with patients and create a reassuring, professional dental environment.
Dr. Wagner earned her Bachelor of Science degree at University of Massachusetts at Amherst where she graduated a semester early summa cum laude with a major in biology and a minor in music performance.
Dr. Wagner then earned her Doctor of Dental Surgery degree at the University at Buffalo School of Dental Medicine, representing the student body by serving on the admissions and curriculum committees.
She then continued her dental education by completing a general practice residency at the Tufts University School of Dental Medicine. During her residency, Dr. Wagner obtained extensive experience treating patients from a variety of backgrounds and medical histories, including patients with special needs. She performed oral rehabilitation cases in the operating room, completed rotations in oral surgery, general anesthesia, and temporomandibular disorders, served as on-call dentist for Tufts Medical Center, while maintaining her own group of comprehensive care patients.
Dr. Wagner worked as an associate dentist at a pediatric dental office before building her own practice. She wished to create an environment that emphasized her unique approach to treatment and patient care. Dr. Wagner prides herself on maintaining an approachable, educational, and reassuring demeanor for all kinds of patients, especially those struggling with fear of the dentist.
Dr. Wagner also holds hospital privileges at Franciscan Hospital for Children in Brighton, Mass. In the operating room, patients are placed under general anesthesia and Dr. Wagner can restore their entire mouth in one visit. This service is available to children and patients with special needs who are not able to receive dental care in the traditional dental setting.
In her free time, Dr. Wagner plays piano, sings, records audiobooks in the public domain for free distribution, and enjoys contra dancing, board games, and local festivals. She lives with her husband Will and their two cats, Ion and Squez.
