About Dworkin, Jay

Drs. Jay Dworkin and Stephen DiBenedetto are senior dentists at Southern Connecticut Dental Group, a comprehensive group practice in Ansonia and Southbury that includes a periodontist, orthodontist and pediatric dentist. The practice uses advanced imaging equipment including the E4D system to scan teeth for Invisalign and to perfect the natural look and feel of crowns. The dentists also use the latest generation of The Wand, a computer-assisted system that eliminates the need for a painful injection to deliver local anesthesia.

Dr. Dworkin graduated from Kenyon College in Gambier, Ohio and earned his dental degree from Tufts University School of Dental Medicine in Boston. He completed his residency in general dentistry at Jewish Memorial Hospital in New York City and further developed his skills at the L.D. Pankey Institute for Advanced Dental Education, the Dawson Center for Advanced Dental Studies at New York University, and the Institute for Advanced Dentistry in Boston. He is also actively involved with the Alpha Omega Dental Fraternity. His vast experience allows him to treat patients with complex dental implant needs and is skilled in full-mouth restorations. He notes that it “takes 10 to 15 years to develop those skills.” He is passionate about education and has taken UConn dental students to on mission trips to Grenada and other locations.
