Dentistry, also known as Dental and Oral Medicine, is a branch of medicine that consists of the study, diagnosis, prevention, and treatment of diseases, disorders, and conditions of the oral cavity. Dentists diagnose and treat dental issues and help patients develop better oral hygiene regimens. They clean teeth, correct bite issues, perform surgeries and extractions, and perform other duties to ensure that the teeth and mouth are healthy. 

Proud members of the West Hartford community, Dr. Phadnis, and the rest of her dental team are truly committed to making their home a better place for everyone. They believe that education is a vital aspect of oral health, especially for children, which is why they provide a number of free seminars at local schools and daycares about the basics of oral hygiene. They also honor veterans on Memorial Day by providing free dental exams and cleanings to thank them for their service, as well as do a number of holiday giveaways throughout the year.
