Meet Our Doctors
Dr. David J. Ahearn
Dr. David Ahearn founded Perfect Smiles in 1993 and Southcoast Smiles in 2010. With well over two decades of expertise in cosmetic and restorative dentistry, he takes great satisfaction in helping fearful or apprehensive patients feel relaxed and comfortable through sedation dentistry. Cutting edge technology – and its ability to improve the lives and health of his patients – is a passion for Dr. Ahearn, who has become a noted expert in the world of dentistry. He regularly teaches advanced programs across the country and is quite often a highlighted speaker at American Dental Association sanctioned events, where he is able to share his knowledge and love of dentistry with other doctors.
Dr. Mary Jane Miranda
Dr. Miranda has been a member of our family since she was a child, when her mother worked at Perfect Smiles. At an early age, Mary Jane expressed an interest in dentistry – an interest that grew through the years, as she grew within our practice. After graduating high school, she started working at our front desk and became a certified dental assistant soon after. In 2007 she graduated from Rhode Island College and took a hiatus from the practice to attend Tufts University School of Dental Medicine. After obtaining her degree, Dr. Miranda returned to practice dentistry where she first fell in love with the profession – Perfect Smiles!
Dr. Neil Blitz
When you come to us for orthodontic treatment, you’ll have the pleasure of working with Dr. Neil Blitz. A native of Brooklyn, New York, Dr. Blitz received his degree from Tufts University School of Dental Medicine and studied orthodontics at The Ohio State University School of Dentistry. Prior to joining our practice in 2009, Dr. Blitz was in private orthodontic practice for 25 years in Rhode Island. Dr. Blitz is a people-person and enjoys learning new things from his patients. During his time away from the office, Dr. Blitz enjoys snorkeling and is an avid underwater photographer and spearfisher.
