About us

Helping the community thrive

Grounded in experience and awareness, Dr. Aurora Fields and the team at Refresh Valley Dental have a mission to deliver personalized and exceptional patient service and professional treatment with tools that are the most advanced in dentistry. A supportive space for every diverse member of the community, and a provider of food security in the area, we focus on efficient oral rehabilitation in a shame-free, low-stress environment through continuous self-improvement in the dental field, and by eliminating as many barriers to care as we can.


Sharing joy in Northampton

Each day we strive to make a meaningful impact in the lives of our neighbors — both inside and outside of our dental practice. That’s why since day one we’ve partnered with the Northampton Survival Center, a local food pantry dedicated to improving the quality of life for low-income individuals and families throughout Hampshire County. For every new patient that comes to Refresh Valley Dental for a comprehensive exam, Northampton Survival Center will provide a month’s worth of nutritious food and other resources in an atmosphere of dignity and respect. We love to eat great food, and believe it's important that our neighbors can share that vital joy.

Dr. Aurora Fields makes a personal connection

Growing up in New York City, Dr. Aurora Fields decided to pursue dentistry while taking a medical diagnosis class in high school.

She knew then that she wanted a career in medicine, but also that she wanted to engage more personally and artistically to help keep people happy, healthy, and thriving. She left the big city for Smith College here in Northampton to work on her undergraduate studies and fell in love with the Pioneer Valley area.

After graduating with a degree in Chemistry, Dr. Aurora returned to New York State and went to the University of Buffalo, where she completed her doctorate of dental surgery degree, and met her wife, Erin. After moving in and out of the area for several years, Dr. Aurora and her wife settled back here in Northampton, and she started searching for the perfect space to host our practice. When Refresh Valley Dental finally opened in December 2021, we partnered with the Northampton Survival Center. Giving back to the community has been of paramount importance since day one, and Dr. Aurora says often that she considers herself extremely lucky to have found such a wonderful place to call home and such a great opportunity to give back to the community. 

During her free time, Dr. Aurora enjoys baking, painting, biking, birdwatching, and relaxing on the couch with her wife and cats over a mellow Netflix show. She also loves video games and good music — you might even hear her sing while she’s working!
