    Paul-Henry Zottola

    Hi! If you’re reading this, then I should probably introduce myself.

    I’m Dr. Paul-Henry Zottola. I was born and raised in New Britain, CT where I still make make my home. I first opened my practice in Rocky Hill as Zottola Periodontal Group; a practice solely focused on periodontics. It became clear to me that it’s easier for patients to not have to see multiple doctors, so I changed it to a general practice in 2009. Now called Zottola Family Dental, my staff and I are committed to providing comprehensive dental treatment in a no-pressure, caring and professional environment. I strongly believe in educating my patients to become better advocates for their own health. I’m happy to answer questions and do my best to explain treatment options. In essence, my practice is all about YOU; the patient. I’m here to help you.

    In my spare time, you’ll probably find me reading, cooking, hiking, biking, being a music junkie or just being a total science nerd.
