Meet Anya Pukhovitskaya of South Boston Family Dental

Today we’d like to introduce you to Anya Pukhovitskaya.

Thanks for sharing your story with us Anya. So, let’s start at the beginning and we can move on from there.
I grew up in the beautiful city of St. Petersburg in Russia and moved to the Boston area with my Mom and my brother when I was 11 years old. From a very early age I knew I wanted to work in the healthcare arena, but narrowed it down to dentistry through a serendipitous series of events. As I loved Boston area I was psyched when I got accepted to Boston University Dental School. 4 years of Dental School later! I went on to get an Advanced Education in General Dentistry residency to equip myself with the skills needed to provide my patients with the best care.

I joined South Boston Family Dental as an associate directly after residency. Fell in love with the practice and the neighborhood. 2 years later I became partner in the practice by joining Dr. Liu. This is how I got acquainted with the daily joys and realities of owning a dental practice.

Great, so let’s dig a little deeper into the story – has it been an easy path overall and if not, what were the challenges you’ve had to overcome?
As every small business owner will say “the struggles are real”. With dentistry, you have the to tackle the clinical and administrative aspects of the business on a daily basis. Taking care of patients and staff, maintaining quality of care and keeping up with the latest advances in the field can get overwhelming. But as with every challenge, it is easier dealt with when you have a team you can trust and a strong personal support system. One of the most important lessons I have learnt along the way is to know when to ask for help, and delegate responsibilities. Once we added staff and brought in an associate ( shoutout To Dr. Keck), I was able to concentrate my efforts and grow the practice further. This success motivated me to open another practice in East Boston.
