Dr. James T. Aris, of Wilton Center Family Dentistry, was named “2016 top dentist” in the August issue of Connecticut Magazine. He was one of 381 peer-selected dentists in seven specialties, the only way to make the list, the magazine says.

Based on his dedication to continuing education, Aris received the Mastership Award from the Academy of General Dentistry last year. In addition to general dentistry, he performs full-mouth reconstructions, root canals, implants, and bone grafts.
