Lindsay Mitchell, DDS, MS

While attending school she also served as a University at Buffalo Undergraduate Teaching Assistant. Her pre-doctoral clinical experience is comprised of clinic work in the Urgent Care Clinic at Erie County Medical Center and a preceptorship in the Oral Maxillofacial Surgery Clinic at ECMC.

Dr. Mitchell received the 2015 Erie County Chester Glor Award upon earning her Doctor of Dental Surgery with a concentration in periodontology at the University at Buffalo School of Dental Medicine. This award is given to a graduating dental senior who exemplifies the qualities of love of dentistry, collegiality and generosity to his colleagues and the community. She then spent her residency at Erie County Medical Center where she enhanced her skills working to provide dental care to long term and special needs patients.

Her community service includes work as a Volunteer Health Provider for the Cattaraugus Indian Reservation where she provided restorative dental care to enrolled patients under the supervision of staff dentists and performed select procedures in endodontics, fixed prosthodontics and oral surgery. Additionally, Lindsay served an 8-day stint providing extractions, and restorative dentistry to patients in the Dominican Republic.
