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!
Dr. Oren Sudai
Shapiro Family Dental is happy and proud to announce that Dr. Oren Sudai has joined our dental team. A native of Toronto, Canada, he was influenced by his mother, a physician and his father, a contractor, to enter the dental field. The combination of a strong interest in medicine as well as the practical aspect of repairing and renovating things to make them functional and beautiful again led him to a career in dentistry. Following completion of dental school at Boston University, he continued onto advanced General Dentistry training residency at the Eastman Institute for Oral Health in Rochester, New York. This residency offered Dr. Oren further knowledge and expertise in oral surgery, implants, cosmetic fillings, root canals, and restorative dentistry.
Dr. Oren also volunteered to provide dental treatment for the homeless in Boston as well as participated in an international mission trip to Guatemala. Dr. Oren maintains, “These experiences exposed me to severe oral health diseases, which added to my motivation to provide the best preventive care possible to all my patients.”
Outside of helping patients improve their oral health, Dr. Oren enjoys playing the piano, traveling, hiking, biking and spending time with family and friends.
