Remaining on the leading-edge of new techniques through frequent participation in continuing education programs.
Dr. Louis Trainor
Over 30 years of experience providing Woburn dentistry.
Dr. Trainor was born and raised in Tulsa, OK. Growing up, he enjoyed spending summers with his family in Fall River and on Cape Cod.

He has also gained much experience from his various roles in dentistry including serving as a Clinical Instructor at Harvard School of Medicine (1998-2000).
When not catering to the needs of his patients and working with his wonderful, competent and fun staff, he enjoys spending time with his wife of over 30 years, Valerie, and their four daughters. In his free time, he enjoys golf, photography, technology and traveling… sometimes finding a way to do all four together!
Dr. Melissa Mancuso
Part of our Woburn Dental Healthcare team since 2001.
Dr. Melissa Mancuso is a general dentist that has been practicing since 2000. She lives in Burlington Massachusetts with her husband, two children, and the family dog.

After college, she received her Masters of Science in Molecular Biology at St. Louis University. In 1996, she went to Boston University School of Dental Medicine and received her DMD, graduating in 2000.
Dr. Mancuso has taken numerous continuing education courses in endodontics with Dr. Clifford Ruddle and Dr. John West at the Scottsdale Center of Dentistry. She then went to the Zeiss Training Center in Chicago to learn how to perform all endodontic procedures through a microscope.
Outside of the office, she enjoys spending time with her family, practicing yoga, and going to the Cape.
The first thing that hits you when you walk into the offices of Drs. Coakley & Trainor is the culture they have built with their stellar staff. It is welcoming and professional. The entire office works as a cohesive team to meet all your needs and to provide a comfortable experience.
