Hi all, it’s Dr. Silva! I started here at Old Greenwich Dental Associates in July of 2015. I was recommended to this dental office by the director of the University of Connecticut School of Dental Medicine, where I studied. Last August, about a month into my new job, I went on maternity leave, then I came back in January.
My job is general dentistry. I like to focus on cosmetic dentistry, though, and I like to correct any dental issues while making sure patients feel comfortable and ready to receive great dental treatment.
My history with dentistry began when I was very young. I started my first job as a dental assistant at age 16, and it really was like love at first sight. Throughout my high school and college years, I continued to pursue dentistry as a dental assistant. After hours or on school breaks, I would learn from various great dentists about how beautiful general dentistry can be.
Dentistry is an art — a profession that can be truly satisfying — when patients are comfortable, happy with the treatment, and given a great smile. From the beginning, I wanted to be like the dentists, not just an assistant. I wanted to grow in the field, so I pursued general dentistry.
I’m so glad to have reached this point and ended up at Old Greenwich Dental Associates. I’ve worked at various dental offices throughout my assisting career, and I can tell you, after living in D.C., it’s just fantastic here. Dr. Busch has created a happy, comfortable environment for the employees and the doctors — and when we’re happy, we make the patients happy too!
My favorite part of the job is having a patient in the chair whom I can make comfortable, even if they’ve had a bad experience with a dentist sometime in the past. I also like it when I’m able to take a patient who’s embarrassed about their smile and give them a brand-new smile. That’s the best thing I can do for a patient, and it’s a satisfying accomplishment for me.
There’s one other thing I wanted to mention about Old Greenwich Dental Associates that’s great: We always have the most advanced materials and the latest procedures in dental care. I know I can go to work every day and provide the best possible service to patients because of these resources, and it makes working at Old Greenwich a real pleasure.
Outside of work, I’m very much in love with my husband of three years and our 10-month-old baby. You know our son doesn’t fall far from the tree, because he loves to get his teeth cleaned! Before the baby, my husband and I liked to travel. We saw Greece, Switzerland, Spain, the Caribbean, and many countries in South America as well. It’s not as easy to get away with the baby, but I’m sure we’ll do it again someday. We both like to play tennis as well, and my husband likes to play golf. Some of my other hobbies include cooking, gardening, and painting, but my absolute favorite is pottery. In fact, I often tell people that I’m basically doing pottery at work. In one case, there was a fracture on the front tooth, and I was able to build it back up from scratch to the point where it’s not even noticeable. The patient even said, “Wow, it looks like nothing even happened here!” I’m so proud that I can create a new smile, and that I can make our patients happy. Thank you!

I strongly recommend OG Dental for those looking for a new dentist or looking to switch. The front desk ladies were very welcoming, knowledgeable and helpful with scheduling and finances. My hygienist, Leah, and Dr. Busch were both great at educating me in the procedures/treatment plan I need to have done and the reasons why. I hadn't been to the dentist in years and the quality of care and attention was excellent! This office is beautiful, modern and also family friendly!
Everyone is amazing and friendly! Dr. Busch is a normal down to earth guy. The front desk team is always on their game. Danielle is the best hygienist going. So happy I found this group.
Awesome experience! Highly recommended! Staff is super friendly and cleaning was quick and enjoyable. Will be returning!
I absolutely love my dental office. It is like visiting family when I go to an appointment. Everyone is so friendly and efficient. I would recommend this dental office to anyone and everyone I know or meet. Always a pleasure :)
Talented, caring staff provides comprehensive care and an extensive network of other providers when need for special surgery arises.
I've been a patient of OGDA since 1988 and have been very pleased with the care I've gotten. The professionals and staff are all totally dedicated to the dental and overall health of their patients.
I have never been to a dental or medical office that was so welcoming and efficient my first visit went with ease. The receptionist knew who I was upon my entering the greeted me with the biggest smiles which was a great start. I then went on to meet the hygienist Kate who cleaned my teeth like never before she was very knowledgeable and made sure I was comfortable every step of the way, she then called the doctor in who was a really cool dude he spoke to me in dental language I can understand made sure before leaving I understood everything we discussed. I do need a few more visits, but I plan on now switching the rest of my family. Thank you Dr. Busch and Staff
It is rare to find a dentist who has excellent credentials, state of the art knowledge and equipment, and a responsive and caring staff. Dr. Busch and his support team accomplish this in an exemplary fashion. His care has been excellent in all ways. I would highly recommend his practice to anyone with dental issues.
