 Justin Cardarelli, DMD

Dr. Justin J. Cardarelli is an owner and general dentist at Merrimack Valley Cosmetic Dentistry.  Dr. Cardarelli was born and raised in nearby Tewksbury, MA.  Dr. Cardarelli grew up working for his father's carpentry business.  It was from his father that Dr. Cardarelli learned the importance of being an honest, hard worker and that as long as you treat  people right you will continue to be successful in anything that you do.  He grew to  appreciate the long standing relationships that his father had with his clients and the satisfaction of making something with your own two hands that was both functional and  esthetic.  Dr. Cardarelli's mother served as a nurse throughout Massachusetts until her retirement in 2009.  Spending time with her at the different offices she would work at opened his eyes to a potential career in medicine.  During his junior year at Tewksbury Memorial High School, Dr. Cardarelli shadowed his family dentist for a work study program.  He felt he had found his perfect blend of medicine, service, and art in dentistry.  

Dr. Cardarelli attended the University of New Hampshire where he became a contributing member of the pre-dental society.  After graduating with a B.S. degree in Biology from UNH in 2009, Dr. Cardarelli took a dental research position at Tufts University.  While studying teeth at a genetic level, Dr. Cardarelli would find time to continue to work at several dental offices as a dental intern.

Dr. Cardarelli graduated Tufts University in 2015.  Dr. Cardarelli is an active member of the American Dental Association and the Massachusetts Dental Society. He is a contributing member of local Spear Study groups.  Dr. Cardarelli holds clinical and pre-clinical faculty positions at Tufts University School of Dental Medicine in the Comprehensive Care and Operative Dentistry departments.
