Meet Dr. Rupali Shah

“Ever since I was a young girl I knew I wanted to pursue a career in medicine, but it wasn’t until college that I chose dentistry. I’ve always loved science, but there is also an artistic side of dentistry that attracted me to the field.

“I’m extremely happy working as an orthodontist. I learn something from each of my patients and love interacting and hearing their stories. A person’s smile is very often the first thing we notice, and I love when our patients leave the office more confident and happy.” – Dr. Shah

Dr. Rupali Shah is committed to providing the highest level of orthodontic care to her patients and truly enjoys working with patients of all ages.

Dr. Shah grew up in East Hartford, Connecticut and graduated Summa Cum Laude from the University of Connecticut with a Bachelor of Science degree in Molecular Biology. She received her Doctorate of Dental Surgery in 2011 from Columbia University College of Dental Medicine and then went on to complete her orthodontic residency in 2013 at the Eastman Institute for Oral Health at the University of Rochester.

The team at CT Braces is always working to improve. Dr. Shah constantly strives to find ways to make sure her patients are satisfied and happy with the care they are receiving. In order to stay current on the newest technology and research, she enjoys reading various orthodontic journals and attending local and national meetings.

Dr. Shah is a member of the American Association of Orthodontists, Northeastern Society of Orthodontists, and the American Dental Association. After practicing in upstate New York for a year, Dr. Shah is excited to return to practice in her home state.

Aside from orthodontics, Dr. Shah enjoys dancing, biking, being outdoors during the summer, and traveling. She is also a huge sports fan, so you’ll often find her watching the UConn Huskies or the Dallas Cowboys.
