Dr. Vishal Gohel was born and raised in Danbury, Connecticut. He completed his Bachelor of Science degree in physiology and neurobiology at the University of Connecticut in Storrs, CT in 2012. During his college years, Dr. Gohel first became exposed to the dental field after breaking a front tooth during a sporting accident. Following a great experience having it treated, he sought out opportunities to observe local dental practitioners to learn more about clinical practice, and his developing interest led him to apply to dental school.

In dental school, Dr. Gohel became passionate about the field of periodontology. He went on to complete his specialty training in periodontics at the University of North Carolina in Chapel Hill. At UNC, he also earned his Master of Science degree, conducting cutting edge animal research focused on the healing patterns of novel bone grafting biomaterials. Dr. Gohel’s special areas of interest include bone regeneration, soft tissue grafting, anterior esthetic dental implants, and minimally invasive approaches to surgery.
Dr. Gohel strives to remain at the forefront of clinical advances in the field with ongoing continuing education, and maintains involvement with numerous professional organizations including the American Dental Association, American Academy of Periodontology, International Team for Implantology, Academy of Osseointegration, and the International Society of Periodontal Plastic Surgeons.

It is the doctor’s goal to provide comprehensive, quality periodontal and implant care in a gentle, comfortable environment.
