Gold Coast Dental Jeffrey D. O'Connell, DMD

DR. JEFFREY O’CONNELL is thrilled to be recognized as a Top Dentist for the 11th time. He majored in biology and chemistry at Skidmore College and earned his dental degree from the University of Medicine and Dentistry of New Jersey in 1997. He continued his dental education for three additional years at UMDNJ and completed his postdoctoral residency in prosthodontics in 2000.

Prosthodontists are extensively trained in state-of-the-art techniques and procedures for treating complex dental conditions involving missing or broken teeth and restoring optimum function and esthetics.

As a specialist in prosthodontics, Dr. O’Connell’s advanced training and experience give him a thorough understanding of the dynamics of a beautiful smile and the preservation of a healthy mouth. He enjoys taking the time to listen and understand his patient’s chief complaints and specializes in complicated cases that involve full mouth reconstruction, restoring implants, veneers, crowns, bridges and dentures.

At his state-of-the-art practice in downtown Fairfield, Dr. O’Connell highly encourages preventative dental health through regular dental cleanings with his “amazing hygienists.” He insists on using the newest technology and advanced materials in all of his procedures including digital radiology, cavity detecting intraoral cameras, 3-D imaging for pre-surgical planning of dental implant placement, and CAD/CAM CEREC technology which enables him to fabricate porcelain crowns in one office visit. Recently, Dr. O’Connell added the Solea laser to his practice. The Solea laser is the newest laser in dentistry. It’s fast, precise and reliably anesthesia-free for most cavities. He also does sealants, fillings and the restorative procedures of general dentistry.

Dr. O’Connell and his extraordinary team thrive on making every patient feel comfortable on the way into the office with a warm welcome and confident on the way out with a beautiful smile.
