Maria Milagros F. Yambao, DDS
As a third generation dentist, I have always felt that dentistry was my calling. Thanks to the guidance and encouragement of my mother, a dentist herself, I was able to fulfill this goal. I owe it to her and to my patients to be the best practitioner I can be, and this is my passion every day. I am blessed to be in a profession that I truly enjoy. I believe that I owe that to my patients, my team, and especially to God who makes all of this possible.
No matter how difficult or challenging a case may be, the happiness and smile in my patients' faces is what I like most about helping them. Our patients come from all different walks of life and cultures, and interacting with them is an opportunity for me to grow as a person, learning from them as they learn from me as well. No day is ever the same, and I look forward to the many new and interesting people I have yet to meet.
Education and Continuing Education
- Bachelor of Science, Doctor of Dental Medicine – University of the Philippines
- Doctorate of Dental Surgery – New York University College of Dentistry
I believe that learning is a lifelong process. Because dentistry is a very dynamic field, I make sure to keep myself abreast with current treatments and technology by actively participating in continuing education through seminars and conventions and by actively participating in organizations that serve this purpose.
- American Dental Association
- New Jersey Dental Association
- Union County Dental Association
- American Academy of General Dentistry
- Omicron Kappa Upsilon Dental Honor Society
I feel blessed to have this great team to work with every day. They are not only hard working and dedicated to their jobs, but what I find special about all of them is their sincerity in helping others. They love making our patients happy and are very caring and accommodating to their needs.
Outside the Office
I am a native of the Philippines and currently reside in Springfield with my husband and our two children. I love the outdoors, traveling, and spending time with my family and friends. I also enjoy being an active participant in my community. I feel it is very important to volunteer in the area where I work and live and help people who are less fortunate.
