Meet Our Team
Insight, experience and dedication to the highest quality of patient care are the hallmarks of our multi-specialty dental team. Our focus is on cosmetic dentistry services, such as dental implants and dental veneers, but we also offer general dentistry and orthodontics. Our general dentists and specialists have received their training from many of the nation’s prestigious educational and dental institutions. It’s our doctors’ skilled combination of art and science that has made Back Bay Dental Care one of New England’s most respected cosmetic dental practices. As a group dental practice, we offer everything from preventive care and general dentistry to sophisticated dental reconstructions.

Meet the Dentists
Dr. Rhonda Friedmann, DMD
Dr. Friedmann grew up in Brookline and earned her DMD degree from Tufts School of Dental Medicine in 1983. She offers her patients preventative care and counseling, restorative treatment, and cosmetic rehabilitation.
For 28 years Dr. Friedmann operated a private dental practice in the Kenmore Square area with Dr Robert Kerstein. They offered compassionate and exceptional care to their patients and continue to do so in their new location at Back Bay Dental Care.
Rhonda enjoys a myriad of outdoor activities including alpine and Nordic skiing, SCUBA diving, kayaking, hiking, and snowshoeing. Indoor activities include reading, Sudoku, word games, and painting furniture. She is the proud mother of her son, Ari.
Rochelle Akradi, DMD
Dr. Akradi graduated magna cum laude from Denison University in Granville, OH in 2010. She was also a successful college athlete, swimming all four years at Denison. She then went on to receive her Doctorate of Dental Medicine from Tufts University School of Dental Medicine in 2014.
In addition to being a passionate general dentist, she is also compassionate and understands dental fears and anxieties. She treats the whole patient and values the connection between oral health and overall health and wellness. Patients appreciate that she doesn’t just tell them what they need. Instead, she works closely to provide education and help them understand the diagnosis. Dr. Akradi believes that when you understand what’s going on in your body you can make the best decisions.
Continuing education is very important to Dr. Akradi. She is an active member of the Spear Study Club, as well as the Seattle Study Club. She was voted Top Dentist, Best of Boston by Boston Magazine in 2017, 2018, and 2019! She is also an active American Dental Association, Massachusetts Dental Society, and the South Shore Dental Society.
Originally from Minnesota, Dr. Akradi loves the lake! She currently resides in South Boston and enjoys wake surfing during the summers and skiing in the winter. Sorry Pats fans, she loves her hometown Minnesota Vikings, but after 9 years in Boston, she has officially adopted the Red Sox and the Bruins as her baseball and hockey teams.
