My biography is quite simple, I have been involved with the Dental Profession since I was a very young girl. I began my career as a dental assistant working every day after school while in high school, and every Saturday as well as all vacation and holidays. I became a Dental Hygienist before entering Dental school to help to pay for my education. I had a very rewarding career as a partner in a multi-specialty practice for 12 years.
Due to unforeseen circumstances, I had to stop practicing clinical dentistry. I was absolutely at a loss as to what avenue I should take with my life, as I Love my profession and was not ready to give it up. A dear classmate and friend of mine was a part-time faculty member at Tufts University School of Dental Medicine. He convinced me to interview there, and the rest is History!
For the past 24 years I have matriculated to becoming a Full Professor. I have Co-Directed many courses, and I have successfully Directed Dental Anatomy/Craniofacial Function for 11 years. I have mentored thousands of my students with love and empathy, and I wear the title MaMa Falzone with pride!
My Sicilian parents nurtured me, gave me unconditional love, and guided me to reach for the stars, and I have, and I always will! They told me that education is number 1; they were so very correct. I have one brother, Paul, who is as dear to me as can be. My husband of 33 years, Peter, and I are very happily married and have 2 sons both of which I am so Proud. Peter Samuel, and Adam Robert Cherubini true financial wizards. Both work and live in New York City for JP Morgan Chase, and Greensill Capitol, respectively.
