Melanie Acosta, DMD

Hello, my name is Dr. Acosta! I grew up in a small town in Connecticut. I received my dental degree from the University of Connecticut in 2003; my specialty training in pediatric dentistry was performed at the University of Maryland.

I have been a member of the Dr. Camps’ team since April 2006.

From a very young age I always knew I wanted to work with children. Before attending dental school I volunteered at different daycare centers, was a camp counselor, worked as a childcare provider during church services and was even a teacher at Gymboree!

I enjoy teaching children and their families how to take care of their teeth. The best part of my day is helping apprehensive children through their dental appointments. It’s a great feeling when we can dry tears, erase fears and have children walk out of our office with a smile – and a prize, of course! At our office we strive to treat each child as we would like our own. As a mother of two small children I knew how much our patients and our families appreciate that!!
