Meet the Team

The Dentists

Gabriela Vatafu, DDS, and Lucian Vatafu, husband and wife, earned their DDS degree in 2005 at New York University, College of Dentistry.

Driven by a strong commitment to quality dentistry, in 2008, they opened a dental practice in Newington. After gaining experience in managing a dental office, they wanted to extend their practice choosing Glastonbury as a new location. Enthusiastic about learning new techniques, they expand their professional knowledge through continuing education courses.

Dr. Gabriela enjoys performing aesthetic procedures, like Veneers and Lumineers, and she is a certified Invisalign provider. Dr. Lucian places Implants, and he is more pro-surgical procedures. Whether performing restorative, cosmetic, prosthetic, or surgical procedures, their goal is to provide the best for patients. They live in Glastonbury, CT, and have two children.
