Educational Excellence
Dr. Jairo Salcedo earned his initial degree from the Universidad Javeriana, in his native Colombia. He then trained at the Harvard School of Dental Medicine (HSDM) in Boston, earning his Doctor of Dental Medicine (DMD) and Master of Medical Science in Oral Biology (MMSc) degrees as well as his Advanced Postdoctoral Certification in Prosthodontics.

Distinguished Teacher
During eight years at Harvard, Dr. Salcedo held several teaching positions, including Director of Pre-doctoral Prosthodontics, Director of the International Program in General Dentistry, and Interim Director of the Graduate Program in Prosthodontics. His contributions were recognized with the Student’s Distinguished Faculty Member Award for instruction in the Department of Restorative Dentistry and Biomaterials Sciences, and Course of the Year Award as Director for the Restorative Block.

Noted Researcher
While a member of the Harvard Dental Center, Dr. Salcedo provided patient care and conducted clinical trials in a practice limited to Prosthodontics. He holds patents for his research on healing around dental implants, and he continues his research as co-investigator in various clinical trials relating to scanning technology in the development of techniques for placement and restoration of dental implants; the evaluation of a new dental implant design; and the long-term success of zirconium all-ceramic restorations. He has presented his research findings at national and international dental symposia and universities.

Innovative Practitioner
Dr. Salcedo focuses on all aspects of Prosthodontics, including full mouth rehabilitation, crowns, veneers, bridges, implant restorations, and complete dentures. He is particularly attuned to special needs of patients whose oral problems are complicated by health issues, trauma, medication, and/or physical limitations. Applying findings he gathered from years of clinical studies, Dr. Salcedo developed a Comprehensive Prevention and Maintenance Program to help patients maintain their dental hygiene, ensure the long-term success of their restorations, and avoid the damaging affects that oral disease can inflict on their systemic health.
