Meet Dr. Gary Opin

meet dr gary opin

I enjoy changing people’s lives with a smile, and it is wonderful that I get to work alongside and learn from my father. I believe it is extremely important to build long-term, trusting relationships with my patients and that starts by spending the time to listen to their needs and concerns. I enjoy the one-on-one interactions I have with my patients and I consider many of them friends.

I graduated with a Bachelor of Arts degree from Colgate University and continued on to Tufts University of Dental Medicine where I earned my Doctor of Dental Surgery degree, graduating with honors. I attended the University of Connecticut School of Dental Medicine where I received my Master’s degree and Certificate in Orthodontics.

I received the Maury Massler Award for demonstrating outstanding ability academically, clinically, and professionally in all phases of clinical dentistry as well as the Tufts University Alumni Dental Association Award for excellence in periodontology. I was also inducted into the OKU dental honor society. I am currently a member of the American Board of Orthodontics and the Angle Society and am an assistant professor and a member of the craniofacial team at Yale University School of Medicine and the University of Connecticut.

I currently reside in Milford with my certified therapy dog, Cooper, and my cat named Benji. In my free time I enjoy playing hockey, boating, snowboarding, surfing, and taking Cooper to schools and hospitals to bring a little joy to those who need it. I am involved with the United Way and am on the boards of the Milford Hospital and the Red Cross.
