Dr. Natasha Larson, a Diplomate of the American Board of Pediatric Dentistry, was born and raised in La Crosse, Wisconsin.

She learned early to appreciate the importance of positive dental experiences. Dr. Natasha takes great pride in the personal connections she builds with her patients and their families. Her main goal as a pediatric dentist is to provide her patients with the best care available in a warm, friendly and fun environment.
Dr. Natasha completed her Bachelor of Science degree in Psychology at the University of Wisconsin-Madison before moving to the east coast to pursue her dental education. She received her Doctor of Dental Medicine degree from Boston University, where she enjoyed participating in various service opportunities to promote oral health for children in the Boston area. After graduating Magna Cum Laude from Boston University Goldman School of Dental Medicine, she completed a one-year residency program at the Mount Sinai Hospital in Manhattan, where she received further training in general dentistry with an emphasis on the management of dental and facial trauma. It was during this year that she made two important realizations: her passion for treating children and her love of New York City.
Dr. Natasha completed her pediatric dental training at the University of Connecticut and the Connecticut Children’s Medical Center, where she received extensive training in the treatment of medically compromised children in a variety of settings. While she is highly trained in all aspects of pediatric dentistry, Dr. Natasha is especially interested in the management of dental trauma. She has presented numerous cases to her colleagues in the Department of Dentistry at the University of Connecticut and continues to stay on top of the latest clinical research in her field.
Outside of dentistry, Dr. Natasha enjoys a very active lifestyle that includes traveling, tennis, skiing, cooking and spending quality time with family and friends. She is an avid sports fan, particularly when it comes to the Green Bay Packers and the Wisconsin Badgers. Dr. Natasha spent 3 years in private practice in New York City and Long Island, including one year at her own practice in Midtown, before deciding to put down her roots in Chelsea.
