Arman Samad-Zadeh, DMD

Dr. Arman Samad-Zadeh graduated with a B.Sc. degree in Biology from the University of Ottawa, Canada, in 2006. He received his DMD degree from Tufts University School of Dental Medicine in 2011. While at Tufts, he participated in several research projects on various restorative dental materials and presented them at the International Association for Dental Research conferences.

While providing dental care to patient at the dental school, he developed a special interest in the field of endodontics. Therefore, after graduating from Tufts, he enrolled at Boston University where he received his Certificate of Advanced Graduate Studies in Endodontics and a Master of Science in Dentistry from Boston University. Throughout this program, he worked with a great team of faculty members to further his knowledge and skills in many different areas of endodontics and had the opportunity to provide endodontic care at the VA Boston-Jamaica Plain campus. As part of his master’s degree, Dr. Samad-Zadeh conducted research at the Department of Molecular and Cell Biology on salivary gland development pathways and their potential role in development of Sjögren’s syndrome. After graduation, he practiced in Omaha, NE for 4 years.

Dr. Samad-Zadeh is an active member of the American Dental Association and American Association of Endodontists. He looks forward to providing compassionate and exemplary care to patients.

Dr. Samad-Zadeh resides in West Hartford. In his free time, he enjoys spending time with his family and friends, playing tennis, reading and staying involved in the community.
