For 2013, we sent questionnaires to every dentist licensed in Connecticut— more than 2,800 — asking them to recommend a dentist to whom they would send a loved one for care in seven categories. We received 490 completed questionnaires (18 percent), a very good return rate. Thus, every dentist listed has been recommended by a significant number of his or her peers — indeed, the only way to make the list is through these peer recommendations. We like to say that every dentist who makes the list is a good one, or at least a recommended one, but not every good dentist makes the list. You should use it as a reference, not the final word, as you search for someone to help you with your dental needs. You must ultimately do your own due diligence in order to decide which dentist is right for you or your loved ones.
Connecticut native, Dr. Frank Maratta, received his undergraduate degree in biology with a minor in Italian at Trinity College in Hartford, and earned his D.M.D. from the University of Connecticut School of Dental Medicine in Farmington. He completed an Advanced Education in General Dentistry (AEGD) program at Columbia University School of Dental Medicine and specialty training in Prosthodontics at Montefiore Medical Center, both in New York, and is board-certified by the American Board of Prosthodontics and a Fellow of the American College of Prosthodontics.
Dr. Maratta joined the practice of Dr. David Kusovitsky, who founded the office in 1981. It is now named New Haven Prosthodontics, P.C. Dr. Maratta offers all services of restorative dentistry for both cosmetic and function including veneers, crowns, bridges, dental implants and dentures for a better quality of life. Prosthodontists are required to undergo an extra three years of specialty training beyond dental school. They are the architects of treatments and solutions for complex dental cases. Dr. Maratta designs beautiful and youthful, but still natural looking, smile makeovers that give patients a boost of self-confidence.
He is qualified to do all types of restorative dentistry, complete mouth restorations, cosmetic dentistry, maxillofacial prostheses and artificial substitutes for oral and facial tissue for patients who’ve suffered a traumatic injury or cancer. He customizes treatments and does much of his own lab work on the premises of New Haven Prosthodontics, which offers many patients a smile makeover in as little as one day. Trained in the latest techniques, he can perform revisions of dental procedures for patients dissatisfied with previous treatments. In addition to restorative dentistry, he offers treatment for sleep apnea, bite appliances and customized teeth whitening, to promote comfort and good oral health.
Dr. Maratta is committed to delivering optimal results with personalized patient care and the highest quality treatment.
