Dr. Leah Divito grew up in Boardman, OH. She developed an interest in dentistry at an early age when she got her braces off and saw a straight, bright smile. She couldn’t believe the impact straightening her teeth could have on her overall confidence and well-being. That’s when she knew she wanted to help others feel the same way. Because she excelled at both math and science and loved the creativity of art, dentistry was the perfect fit. Now she can combine her talents with artistry and science to improve people’s lives — one smile at a time!
Dr. Divito received her bachelor’s degree from John Carroll University and earned her Doctor of Dental Surgery degree from Ohio State University College of Dentistry. After completing a general residency at St. Elizabeth’s Hospital in Youngstown, OH, Dr. Divito began her career in public health.
While she loved the impact she made in people’s lives, she realized that she could flourish and grow as a dentist in her own practice. Dr. Divito regularly takes advanced training courses in Invisalign, implant placement, Botox, and cosmetic restorations.
When she isn’t caring for patients, Dr. Divito loves to read, bake, and explore the outdoors with her husband and their daughter.
Our skilled team loves to make every visit a pleasant one, and believes that caring for the members of our community is an honor. We love what we do and we love to see our patients smile!
Your first visit to Luminous Dental is not only a time for your appointment but also a time for us to get to know each other. After a brief introduction, we’ll review your medical history, take any necessary X-rays, and perform a comprehensive exam. Depending on our findings, we may clean your teeth. Dr. Divito will review her findings with you and, if needed, schedule any further appointments.
Luminous Dental strives to be a soothing place that changes the way you view dental care. We offer many amenities to make your visit that much more comfortable and to help our patients feel relaxed.
Using the latest dental technology allows us to deliver an experience that is faster, safer, and more comfortable for our patients.
Cone Beam, or CBCT, imaging creates a 3D image of your teeth, soft tissues, and nerve pathways to help Dr. Divito place implants and perform other procedures with higher accuracy.
Digital X-rays are more comfortable than traditional films, are more environmentally friendly, and expose our patients to less radiation.
Intraoral Cameras give us a crystal clear image of your teeth so we can see up close the grooves, pits, and fissures to make sure everything looks healthy. Early detection means earlier treatment, which preserves your natural tooth and also saves you money and time in the chair.
When Dr. Divito was in 7th grade, she won a scholarship to B-Wiser Science camp. She spent a week with other girls at The College of Wooster, where she was exposed to all areas of science through the counselors, who were women in college pursuing careers in STEM.
Dr. Divito believes that having the opportunity to spend a week with like-minded girls being led by women in science, gave her the confidence to explore a career in science too.
To help other girls pursue their dream, Dr. Divito offers scholarships to 7th-grade girls to attend the B-Wiser Science camp.
