Raina A. Trilokekar, DMD
I am Dr. Raina Trilokekar. I grew up in Bombay, India and attended St. Xavier’s College in the city. I then attended Nair Hospital Dental College in Bombay where I earned a Bachelor’s and Master’s in dental surgery. Later I immigrated to the United States and earned a certificate in Endodontics as well as a DMD degree at Tufts University School of Dental Medicine. I then pursued board certification and I am a diplomate of the American Board of Endodontics. I spend a lot of my time volunteering in the dental community.

I enjoy volunteering at my church, reading mystery novels, and baking.
Having studied dentistry in two countries for more than ten years, I think it is clear that I am passionate about my career. The thing that I like about endodontics is my ability to help people by relieving them of their pain, and help them maintain good oral health. Because this is what I most enjoy about endodontics I want every patient who sits in my chair to be comfortable both physically and mentally. I do my best to make sure that this is always the case and that the patient has the best endodontic experience possible. I want them to know that when they are being treated by me they are the number one priority.
Jennifer Muldorf Klein, DMD
My name is Dr. Jennifer Muldorf Klein. I grew up in Poughkeepsie, New York and attended college at Tufts University in Medford, MA. After college, I attended dental school at the Tufts University School of Dental Medicine, graduating in 1993. My two year residency in endodontics was also completed at Tufts, in 1995. I have remained in the Boston area since then with my husband and our two children. We like hiking, skiing and traveling together.
As an endodontist, I enjoy the cutting edge technology that enables me to provide the the most accurate and predictable outcomes for my patients, particularly in challenging cases such as retreatments. I believe that explaining the treatment and answering all questions up front makes the procedure much more comfortable. My goal as a provider is to ensure a pain free, stress free experience with the highest degree of success for my patients.
Emina Zaganjori, DMD
I’m Dr. Emina Zaganjori. I grew up in a suburb of Boston and graduated from Tufts University. I later attended dental school at Tufts and completed my DMD degree in 2000.

I returned to Tufts to pursue my certificate in Endodontics and joined Limited to Endodontics upon my graduation in 2005. In my free time I enjoy spending time with my family, reading, cooking and crocheting.
I was attracted to Endodontics during my general practice residency. I found it rewarding to help patients in pain. No two situations are the same- in each case I need to formulate a diagnosis and provide the proper treatment to help my patient. I feel rewarded each time I am able to help someone feel better.

I enjoy being a team dentist for the Boston Bruins and keeping them on the ice for another run at the Cup!
I love what I do and being part of one of the top specialty practices in the country. I especially enjoy showing people that a root canal is nothing to be scared of. We are here to get you out of pain, not cause it. And being part of a specialty group practice allows me to focus on quality. I take a lot of pride in overcoming the most difficult cases and helping people keep their teeth for a lifetime.
Dr. Ian C. Grayson
I’m Dr. Ian Grayson. I was born and grew up in Toronto, Ontario, Canada. I attended the University of Toronto faculty of dentistry. Following my graduation I completed a general practice residency at the Toronto General hospital. From there I went into private practice for 33 years, paying particular attention to endodontics and surgery. At that point I decided to leave private practice and pursue an academic position so I went back to school and graduated with an MMSc and specialty in endodontics from the Harvard School of Dental Medicine. I immediately became board certified in both Canada and the United States in endodontics. Currently I hold a faculty position directing the clinical portion of the post-doctoral endodontics program at HSDM and work part time with Limited to Endodontics.
I have been married to my beautiful wife for 30 years and have 3 children. I was a ski instructor for 10 years prior to coming to Boston so I enjoy skiing and playing squash.
I am passionate about endodontic practice. I enjoy working with patients to provide both surgical and non-surgical treatments. I am very interested the biological basis for all the endodontic treatment we provide.

I am passionate about teaching. I believe teaching requires lifelong learning – through reading, attending continuing education courses, and implementing technology to help diagnose/treat efficiently our endodontic patient population. I trust that by applying evidence-based technology/medicine/surgical techniques in the realm of endodontics, I can provide my patients with the best treatment outcomes.
