Dr. Paulina Kanakos Schirripa is a native Staten Islander. She graduated from St Joseph Hill Academy High School, attended George Washington University for her undergraduate studies, and continued to receive her dental degree at Tufts University School of Dental Medicine. She then completed her residency at UCONN for Pediatric Dentistry in 2019. She loves seeing her patients everyday and developed her own system for kids to be excited in taking a trip to the dentist!
Dr. Paulina is of Greek descent, and is very involved in her Greek culture, family, and Church community. She was influenced by her YiaYia and Pappou (grandmother and grandfather) who immigrated to America from Greece in search of a better life for their families. They always preached hard work, honesty, education, integrity, respect, and to be a great teammate. She emulates these qualities with everyone she encounters and is absolutely a great asset and fit to our Sweet Tooth Pediatric Dentistry family!
