Dr. A. F. Paghdiwala graduated from New Jersey Dental School in 1979.
He has been in private practice since 1979, and has served the Philadelphia area since 1981.
He is proficient in all phases of general dentistry, and gives special emphasis on cosmetic dentistry and dental implants. He has spent hundreds of hours on continuing education and regularly attends courses to keep abreast with latest advances in dentistry. Dr. Paghdiwala has been placing dental implants for over 12 years. He was awarded a Fellowship in Implant Dentistry in 2009 and a Mastership in Implant Dentistry in 2012 by the International Congress of Oral Implantologists (ICOI)
He has also been a pioneer in the dental laser field. Way back in 1985, when lasers had not yet been introduced in dentistry, Dr. Paghdiwala was certified in laser surgery. He then received a National Institute of Health research grant for developing a laser dental drill, which led to his obtaining a US Patent in 1995. Dr. Paghdiwala has published several papers in dental journals and has spoken at seminars all over the country.
He is a member of the American Dental Association, Pennsylvania Dental Association, Philadelphia County Dental Society and Academy of General Dentistry.
We pledge to provide the comfort, security and confidence of mini dental implants to denture wearers who cannot get standard wider implants, either because their bone condition is not adequate for the wider implants or they cannot tolerate conventional implant surgery or cannot afford the costs of standard implants and restorations.
