Meet Dr. Antonela Larashi

Hallmark Smiles Dental Care Founder

Dentist Flint, Dr. Antonela LarashiGrowing up, Antonela Larashi, DMD knew that she wanted to enter a profession where she could care for others and help them to improve their health.

Her mother was a pediatrician but Dr. Larashi felt drawn to dentistry because of her own personal experiences. As a child, she had a dentist who was always friendly and a joy to visit. Dentistry offered a different type of work-life balance than traditional medicine and so after graduating with her undergraduate degree she went on to study dental medicine at Boston University. She received her Doctor of Dental Medicine degree in 2013.

Passion for Serving Others

Throughout Dr. Larashi’s education, she enjoyed the diverse patient population whom she was able to serve: seniors most especially. “I find it extremely fulfilling to see a patient smile again or get out of pain,” she says. Her favorite part of dentistry? “The long-lasting relationship”. Being able to see her patients on a frequent basis allows her to establish true friendships that go beyond just the traditional dentist-patient connection.

Staying Abreast of the Latest Trends

Dentistry is always changing and advancing the ways that Dr. Larashi can provide care to her patients. As such, she’s a lifelong learner, frequently taking continuing education courses to implement the latest research into our services. Some of her most recent training includes courses on dental implant placement, laser dentistry (including drill-free fillings), orthodontics and same day CEREC crowns.

She is a member of the American Dental Association, Michigan Dental Association and the Oakland Dental Society.

Life Outside of Dentistry

As a busy mother of three beautiful girls, Dr. Larashi is always on the go. She and her husband enjoy spending time outdoors or traveling across the country visiting various family members.
