Flavia Tingling, DDS
Dr. Tingling was born on the beautiful sunny island of Jamaica, but shortly thereafter relocated to the cold winters of Michigan! The move was prompted by her father’s educational pursuit to become an Orthodontist at The University of Michigan- Ann Arbor. Her mother became a dental hygienist when Dr. Tingling was in high school. After her completion of an undergraduate degree from the “Big House”, Dr. Tingling surprised everyone and followed the path of her DNA, by becoming a dentist!
She then traded the cold winters of Ann Arbor for the bright lights of New York City! She was a fellow of General Dentistry at the Columbia University School of Dental and Oral Surgery, for 2 years. It was her exposure there that led her to pursue a specialty degree in Pediatrics. She completed her Pediatric Dentistry Residency at St. Barnabas Hospital- New York Presbyterian Weil Cornell, Bronx, New York. Her genuine love of children is evidenced by the arduous tasks she completed, to enable her to treat them exclusively. She likes practicing dentistry, but LOVES rendering care to children!
Dr. Tingling came to Virginia to be closer to her family and friends in the Mid- Atlantic region She looks forward to exploring the Atlantic coast, the Washington DC sights, the beaches and nearby Mountains; all the best that the DMV has to offer. She enjoys traveling, reading, tea parties, and most importantly- making the dental experience for children AWESOME!
