What Our Dental Patients Say

Was truthfully the best dental experience of my life. Everyone was so kind and pleasant I found myself smiling my entire visit. I am definitely pleased that this is where I randomly chose to go to after moving to CT. I would highly recommend the New Haven Dental Group in Hamden to anyone! Jacob J., East Haven, CT

I have been happy with this group for routine care and now I have had an emergency and the practice took my call on Saturday, the doctor called me back, and they saw me first thing Monday morning. Very friendly and professional staff as well. I'm also a student and they understand my lifestyle and budget! Scheduling is also easy compared to many practices. Faye S., Bethany, CT

I love how they explain exactly what’s going on, how my teeth are, what I needed to do differently and whether I’m improving or not! They always keep me informed and are professional, kind and courteous. Nichole B., Northford, CT

Dental Implants

Replace Your Lost Teeth

If you have suffered any degree of tooth loss, you may face a number of challenges, including a lack of self-confidence and an increased risk of oral and overall health issues. Our doctors are ready to help you solve those problems. We are proud to offer dental implants, which have a similar structure to natural teeth and leave you with replacements that are almost indistinguishable from your original, formerly healthy dentition. For your convenience and comfort, we are able to perform every stage of the dental implant treatment process right here at New Haven Dental Group.

Dental Crowns & Bridges

Renew Damaged or Missing Teeth

When a natural tooth suffers damage or goes missing, some of the little joys in life, like smiling and eating, may suddenly become challenges rather than pleasures. Thankfully, our Hamden dental office offers a number of high-quality restorative solutions for rebuilding functional, aesthetically pleasing dental structures. Customized crowns and bridges are both available. Dental crowns serve to protect weakened or damaged teeth, whereas dental bridges can fill in spaces left by lost teeth and provide reliable, long-lasting replacements.

Gum Disease Therapy

Healthy Gums Promote a Healthy Body

If your gums are red or frequently bleed when you are flossing and brushing at home, periodontal (gum) disease may be to blame. This type of infection should be taken seriously — left untreated, it can lead to devastating consequences for both oral and overall health. Our team is here to help. Our skilled hygiene department provides detailed screenings and professional periodontal therapy to combat harmful bacteria and battle gum disease. We want to help you maintain your unique smile for a lifetime to come!

Orthodontics & Invisalign®

Correct Misaligned Teeth

If you are ready to bid farewell to gapped or crooked teeth, schedule a consultation with our team. Through orthodontic treatment, we may be able to move your teeth into their proper positions. Such services are available for patients of practically any age. Traditional metal braces are a tried and true solution for correcting dental misalignment. However, if you would prefer a subtler solution, you may also be a good candidate for Invisalign®, which uses clear, comfortable aligners to reposition teeth.

For your convenience, we've compiled a list of frequently asked questions below to address common concerns about our practice and dentistry as a whole. Feel free to review the following information to learn more about our approach and how we can support your oral health.

How Do I Get Emergency Dental Care?

Most emergency rooms are not equipped to handle dental emergencies effectively. Therefore, unless your situation is life-threatening (in which case, dial 911 immediately), it's typically advisable to reach out to a dentist near Hamden when faced with an urgent oral health concern.

Give us a call so our team can offer initial first-aid guidance and arrange an emergency appointment for you. Following a thorough examination of your mouth, we will discuss your available treatment options. Prompt action is crucial when seeking emergency dental care, as delaying can easily worsen your situation.

How Do I Find the Best Place to Get Dental Work Done?

When searching for the right dental care provider, you must first identify your priorities. If you're aiming for top-notch dental services, start by conducting a Google search for "dentist near me" and looking at reviews.

For those seeking excellence in team expertise, comprehensive services, insurance coverage, and hygiene standards, your search ends here! At New Haven Dental Group, we embody these qualities and would be privileged to serve as your trusted dental partner. Take a closer look at our services and reviews to ensure that we meet your expectations, solidifying us as the perfect choice for all your dental needs.

How Can I Make a Same-Day Appointment with a Dentist?

To make a same-day appointment, the easiest method is to give our office a call. Whether you're dealing with a dental emergency or have unexpected free time in your schedule, reaching out to us directly ensures the quickest response to your needs. Speaking directly with our team allows us to promptly evaluate your situation and inform you of our availability for an immediate appointment.

What to Do If You Can’t Afford a Dentist?

Our practice never wants your dental care to be out of reach. That’s why we offer multiple financing options to ensure accessibility to our services. Whether you have dental insurance or are uninsured, we have options for you.

We proudly accept dental insurance, offer third-party financing, and have periodic special offers. Prioritizing preventive dental care is crucial in keeping treatment costs manageable. By scheduling routine visits, you not only catch oral health issues early but also prevent potential complications, leading to big savings in the long run.
