Our Practice

Family & Esthetic Dentistry of Hamden has been creating beautiful smiles for over 25 years.  We are a comprehensive dental practice that provides all levels of care for all ages of patients from simple cleanings and fillings to complex cosmetic procedures.  Our goal is to help create a smile and level of oral health that you deserve.  We pride ourselves on keeping up with the latest advances in dentistry and utilize state-of-the art dental technology to deliver optimum dental care.

Dr.’s Charney and Fratarcangeli, along with their excellent team, believe patient involvement is a critical component in the successful management of a patient’s overall oral health.  With that in mind, our team emphasizes patient education and participation to achieve and maintain the highest level of oral health.  You can also be sure that we will always listen to your needs, desires and concerns and work hard to develop a treatment plan that makes both you and our office feel comfortable and confident you will receive the best care possible.

The first visit at our office ideally involves a comprehensive evaluation. This evaluation consists of taking a full medical and dental history, any necessary digital x-rays and intra-oral photos.  We will perform a complete examination of your teeth and surrounding gums and tissues. During this appointment we also want to hear from you! We want to know about your past treatments and experiences, your concerns and expectations, any problems you may be having, how you feel about your smile, and most importantly, what we can do to ensure your visit with us is the most positive experience you have ever had. We will discuss our findings and develop a treatment plan to meet your dental needs.

Thank you for considering our practice for your dental needs.
