Your smile is our passion!
Our goal is to provide friendly and comfortable dental care in a stress-free environment. We know that a visit to the dentist can be stressful, Dr. Elahi and our friendly professional team will take the time to get to know you so we can provide personalized care in a gentle manner. There are a few ways we can help you get the care you need which we will go over at your first visit. As always it is our honor to serve the community and we are grateful for the trust you have in us.
A standard of excellence in personalized dental care enables us to provide the quality dental services our patients deserve. We provide comprehensive treatment planning and use restorative and cosmetic dentistry to achieve your optimal dental health. Should a dental emergency occur, we make every effort to see and care for you as soon as possible.
As a practice, we are true believers that preventative care and education are the keys to optimal dental health. We strive to provide “dental health care” vs. “disease care”. That’s why we focus on thorough exams – checking the overall health of your teeth and gums, performing oral cancer exams, and taking x-rays when necessary. We also know that routine cleanings, flossing, sealants, and fluoride are all helpful in preventing dental disease. Not only are we focused on the beauty of your smile, we’re also concerned about your health. A review of your medical history can help us stay informed of your overall health, any new medications, and any illnesses that may impact your dental health.
As your dental health professionals, we want you to be confident knowing that we are a team of highly trained and skilled clinicians. We pride ourselves in providing the care you need to keep your smile healthy. To give you the best possible service and results, we are committed to continual education and learning. We attend dental lectures, meetings, and dental conventions to stay informed of new techniques, the latest products, and the newest equipment that a modern dental office can utilize to provide state-of-the-art dental care. Also, being members of various professional dental associations helps us to stay abreast of the changes and recommendations for our profession.
Building a foundation of trust by treating our patients as special individuals is vital to our success. We understand how uneasy some patients may feel about their dental visits, and how we can make a difference in providing a relaxing and positive experience. Our entire team is dedicated to providing you with excellent, personalized care and service to make your visits as comfortable and pleasant as possible.
My passion for dentistry started during high school while visiting my own dentist in Waterbury, Connecticut. As a patient I understood the anxiety and fears that come with visiting the dentist but I also understood the importance of oral health. This combined with my artistic inclination is what led me on a path that I am on today.
I started at the University of Connecticut and went on to Boston University for my dental education. I furthered my training in an advanced program at the University of Cincinnati meeting many wonderful people along the way. I decided to return to my hometown to serve the community where my interest first started and where I grew up.
I am constantly looking to improve my knowledge and skills with the latest advances in dentistry through seminars and workshops. This allows me to provide advanced treatments and sound advice with your goals in mind keeping your smile healthy for life. Outside of the practice, I enjoy spending time with family and friends, hiking, tennis, bicycling, reading or relaxing with a movie.
At Middlebury Dental Center, we value compassionate, gentle and quality dental care; as we would expect from our dental visit and we strive to provide the same for our patients. Our goal is to provide high quality service in a friendly and personable environment that leads to healthy smiles for life.
Middlebury Dental is Great!! I love the staff, they are very friendly and efficient. Dr. E and his Assistant are Great as well. He is gentle and they explain everything in detail as he is working on your teeth. I have not had any issues with the work he has done.
I have never liked going to the dentist until I came here. They are so gentle, friendly, and honest. They educate you without making you feel bad, and never push you to buy products or get unnecessary work. I love going to the dentist now. Absolutely terrific staff and work all around. Highly highly recommend!
I recently moved to CT and chose Middlebury Dental Center based on their ratings. Let me tell you, the rating is very accurate, Dr. Elahi and his team, they all provide five ⭐️ service! Today I had my regular cleaning done with Brittany, she was great. I highly recommend her.
Great office, reception, hygienists and dentists. I picked it for location, and found a great dentist. I've had 1 "emergency" and they scheduled me quickly and fixed my issue within 24 hours. While I can't say I love dental work, I've not had a bad experience! Also adding that I've always been taken in on time!
Fantastic Dentist and Staff! Lisa, the hygienist, has been working with me for years and is extremely thorough, sweet and does a fantastic job with my cleanings. I highly recommend this dental office for anyone who is looking for a clean atmosphere, knowledgeable staff, and dentist who is always approachable and willing to answer all of your questions.
I have always been one of those with a big fear of ANYTHING dentistry. Dr. Elahi did everything he could to put me at ease. Just had my first root canal, and I was terrified thinking of the pain. He made sure I felt nothing and his demeanor has totally changed my comfort level regarding dentistry. Guess I never had the right guy, cause he sure made a world of difference to me. I will personally reccomend him any day!!!!!
