Your Dentists


Meet Dr. Shapiro

Neil A. Shapiro, DMD, is a highly skilled dentist who serves patients from all over Hartford County at Shapiro Family Dental in Wethersfield, Connecticut. There, he offers world-class dental care at the state-of-the-art office.

In 1998, Dr. Shapiro graduated with a Doctor of Medicine in Dentistry (DMD) degree from the University of Connecticut School of Dental Medicine. After graduating, he completed a General Practice Residency Program at St. Mary's Hospital in Waterbury, Connecticut. During his residency, he gained valuable experience in oral surgery and oral facial repairs following traumatic injury.

Since becoming a practicing professional, Dr. Shapiro has been diligent about enrolling in continuing education courses. He has studied to the point of excellence in performing root canals, oral surgery, dental implants, bone grafting, and his own QuickBraces of Connecticut — an innovative orthodontic method that straightens teeth in months rather than years.

Patients have come to appreciate his calm, polite chairside manner and his emphasis on patient education. Each personalized treatment plan is a collaborative effort and Dr. Shapiro routinely forms close personal relationships with his patients.

Dr. Shapiro is also a current member of the American Dental Association (ADA), the Connecticut State Dental Association (CSDA), the Academy of General Dentistry (AGD), the American Academy of Implant Dentistry (AAID), and the Hartford Dental Society.

When he’s not in the office, Dr. Shapiro is probably rocking out on a stage somewhere. He plays many musical instruments and even composes his own original songs. Ask him where you can catch him play with one of his bands, as he routinely plays social functions across the state!
