Dr. Santilli was raised in West Lafayette, Indiana. She graduated from Johns Hopkins University with a degree in Neuroscience and English. She then attended Indiana University School of Dentistry where she received her Doctor of Dental Surgery degree. She continues to be committed to rigorous continuing education attending courses on weekends, to expand her knowledge in implants from the Las Vegas Institute for Advanced Dental Studies and recently received Laser Associate Fellowship Certification from World Clinical Laser Institute.

Dr. Santilli enjoys spending time with her family. She moved to North Dallas from Indiana for the hot weather, great school systems, and fun opportunities! Cowboys, Lego land, Six-Flags, Dallas State Fair, are all great attractions that brought her out of the small town in Indiana. However, growing up in the countryside, with the cows and horses, riding a bike along the dirt road, driving next to farmlands in her dad’s old truck are still at the root of where Dr. Santilli came from. She chose a location on the highway near communities that are reminiscent of her home with good values and the comfort of close tight communities!
