Dr. Bridget Sweeney, Your New Best Friend

Dr. Bridget Sweeney founded The Ivory Dental Co. with the passion to create a one-of-a-kind dental experience for the people of Buffalo. Ever since she was a kid, she’s loved going to the dentist and believes every patient deserves to feel that way too. 

Her favorite part of being a dentist is spending quality time getting to know her patients, meeting their families, and listening to their stories. Dr. Sweeney and our team feel so fortunate to share in these special relationships. That’s why at The Ivory Dental Co., you’ll never be left alone to just wait. We’ll be with you every step of the way as you discover your brilliance.

When she’s not at the office, you can find Dr. Sweeney biking around Buffalo, cheering on the Bills, mastering a jigsaw puzzle, or tending to her 70+ houseplants.
