Six UConn Health dentists—who also serve as faculty at the UConn School of Dental Medicine— were named “Top Dentist” in Connecticut Magazine’s August 2019 issue. “Top Dentists” are chosen through a questionnaire sent to every licensed dentist across Connecticut. The questionnaire—administered by Connecticut Magazine—asked each dentist to recommend a dentist to whom they would send a loved one for care.

UConn Health dentists listed in the issue include:


Dr. Qiang Zhu

General Dentistry

Dr. Aadarsh Gopalakrishna


Dr. Sumit Yadav

Pediatric Dentistry

Dr. Bina Katechia


Dr. Ajay Dhingra

Dr. Patchanee Rungruanganunt
