A World-Class Prosthodontist Serving Glastonbury & Hartford

Distinguished Prosthodontist

Dr. Bidra is a board-certified prosthodontist, a specialist who focuses on the restoration and replacement of teeth. Prosthodontists are the experts dentists turn to in difficult tooth restoration cases. Dr. Bidra also has a sub-specialty in maxillofacial prosthodontics, an even more advanced specialization in prosthodontics that focuses on rehabilitative reconstruction.

Innovator in His Field

Dr. Bidra’s diagnostic and treatment protocols for implant-supported bridges using just four implants are used worldwide by clinicians and prosthodontics programs. In addition, he has invented components for an implant prosthetic and is a co-inventor of a unique implant design. More recently, he helped test and develop an oral rinse to inactivate the COVID-19 virus, reducing the risk of spreading the virus during dental procedures.

Esteemed Educator

Dr. Bidra trains other dentists on dental implants and is director of the prosthodontics residency program at the University of Connecticut School of Dental Medicine. He is also a clinical professor who teaches advanced prosthodontics, implant surgery, and maxillofacial prosthodontics to postgraduate dental residents.

A Compassionate Prosthodontist With a Gentle Touch

Dr. Bidra uses advanced technology and focuses on gentle, one-on-one patient care to create personalized dental treatments.

His mission for every patient is to provide them with a healthy, beautiful smile so they can live their lives to the fullest, smiling confidently and relishing every meal.

I highly recommend Dr. Bidra. Not only is he the best at what he does, but he truly cares about his patients. I was a little anxious to have the procedure done, Dr. Bidra went out of his way to make sure I was comfortable and put any concerns to rest.
