"I have been a patient of East Haddam Dental for very many years. I have at all times been treated courteously and professionally. Dr. Stofko and now Dr. Goldman have tended to my teeth with a maximum of skill and a minimum of pain. Dr. Pear has also pitched in in their absence when I had an emergency that could not wait. I have never had an issue with the front desk staff. When I have a problem with a tooth they are always sympathetic and do their best to get me an early appointment to get it fixed. As for wait time, my experience is that I'm usually seated within a few minutes of my appointment. On those rare occasions where I did have to wait it was only for 15 minutes or so. I always figured the Doctor was backed up because someone needed extra help and I was just happy not to be that person. Needless to say I am pleased with the quality of care I've received and intend to stay with East Haddam Dental for the foreseeable future."- T.B. / Yelp / Jul 28, 2018

"I was changing my dentist and this was my first visit to East Haddam Dental Associates.I found all the people working there very pleasant and knowledgeable and Dr.Goldman was very nice. He filled a few cavities I had and I would like to continue going to East Haddam Dental Associates when the need arises."- W.S. / Google / Jun 09, 2021
"I love East Haddam Dental Associates so much, I’m not sure where to begin. Let’s start with the office staff; Always welcoming and friendly the staff makes me feel comfortable, just like I am at home. When I have appointments I usually arrive at least 45 minutes early simply because I like how the staff treats me. The lady behind the desk actually talks to me as if she likes me. Because 6 months between cleanings is so long, I try to stop by the office for a casual visit in between appointments, and even though they are surprised to see me they let me sit in the waiting room and just relax for a few minutes. The dentist, Dr. Goldman is always very nice and informative. I’m surprised by how much he knows about teeth and the dangers of tooth decay. I call him Josh because he also made me feel right at home and as if I was a friend. He provided excellent service and I will be coming here for all my future dental needs!"- S. / Google / May 27, 2021

A smile makeover may be helpful if you would like to enhance the look of your teeth, or if you want multiple restorative or cosmetic procedures. We will personalize your smile makeover plan to fulfill your goals and concerns, but it might consist of teeth bleaching to fix discoloration and stains on your enamel. Other cosmetic procedures that might be part of your plan are bonding and contouring or veneers to correct the length and shape of your teeth, and to mask minor openings between teeth. Restorations (bridges and crowns) may be needed to replace a lost tooth or teeth. At East Haddam Dental Associates, we offer custom restorations to ensure they match your regular teeth for a seamless look.
Prior to performing cosmetic treatments, we will have to make sure your gums and teeth are healthy. If you have any restrictive oral health issues such as a dental malocclusion or periodontal disease, then this will have to be treated first.
What To Expect
Each smile makeover is customized, so our dental team will discuss exactly what to expect throughout your treatment, such as the number of visits you might require. We can work with you to plan your appointment(s) to complete each one of the procedures in your makeover. Local anesthesia will be needed before a few of your treatments; however, other sedation choices may be suggested if you require help relaxing due to dental worries or anxieties. During your smile makeover, our team will be accessible to answer any questions.
As soon as your smile makeover is finished, you should keep up the health and look of your teeth using a regular home oral care regimen (both flossing and brushing daily). Along with everyday maintenance, you need to make appointments for dental examinations and cleanings at East Haddam Dental Associates so we can track your progress. With appropriate maintenance, the outcomes of your smile makeover ought to last for several years. Touch-up procedures every couple of years, such as teeth whitening, might help to refresh your results. Restorations and veneers might also have to be replaced or repaired, which will all be discussed with us in your visits.
At your initial consultation, we can help create a smile makeover plan that matches both your goals and budget. We can estimate the price of your treatment program and go over payment options we accept, like low-interest medical financing. The cosmetic treatments in a smile makeover are usually not covered by insurance, although some restorations might be partly insured. A member of our team will call your insurance provider to ascertain your precise coverage and personal expenses.
