Dr. Riti Kanthan
Clinical Director of Lux Dental for Kids (Saugus)

Dr. Kanthan is a General Dentist who graduated from Tufts University School of Dental Medicine. She was born and raised in New Jersey, where her combined passion for artistry and science drew her towards a career in dentistry. Dr. Kanthan attended Tufts for her B.S. in Biology, during which time she fell in love with Boston and decided to pursue her dental education in that cozy city. While in dental school, Dr. Kanthan volunteered at the Boston Chinatown Neighborhood Center as a high school math and science tutor, which solidified her interest in community service and activism. In her final year, she earned the Tufts Merit Scholarship and completed an externship at the North Shore Community Health Center in Salem, MA. The warmth of the patients and staff in Salem convinced Dr. Kanthan that she had chosen the perfect profession.

In her spare time, Dr. Kanthan enjoys cooking and baking unnecessarily complicated recipes, feeding them to her trusting family, and sporadically posting the evidence to her food blog. When not in the kitchen, she can be found either hiking mountains in New Hampshire or binge-watching television from under a pile of blankets.
