For 2014, 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 470 completed questionnaires (nearly 17 percent), a very good return rate for a survey like this. 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.
Dr. Todd Rubin graduated from Binghamton University with a B.A. in biology and earned his D.M.D. degree from Tufts University School of Dental Medicine. He completed a general dentistry residency at UConn School of Dental Medicine and feels fortunate to have joined the practice of his father, Mark Rubin, D.M.D., in 2004.
Dr. Rubin just completed an expansion and remodeling of his office to include all new top-of-the-line equipment and technology. His wife, Dr. Satoko Ono Rubin, with whom he graduated dental school with in 2003, will be joining the practice as a specialist in prosthodontics, periodontics and implant surgery. The doctors strive to achieve “patient-first” care and enjoy treating children as well as adults. “We have the patients’ best interests in mind,” he said. “We review all the options and have the patient active in the decision making and treatment planning process.” Patients compliment them on their skilled, warm and caring staff. The dentists are in-network providers with most insurance plans.
