He is a graduate of the University of Pennsylvania’s School of Dental Medicine, as well as the University of Pennsylvania’s Graduate School of Education. He received his specialty certificate in Endodontics from the University of Buffalo School of Dental Medicine. Additionally, while at the University of Buffalo, he was awarded a Masters of Science degree in the Oral Sciences for pioneering research he completed in the field of Digital Subtraction Radiography.
Dr. Kaplan has been awarded many honors, including being selected nationally as America’s Top Dentist in the field of Endodontics for the past 18 years in a row, and being honored locally as a Rhode Island and Massachusetts Top Endodontist on multiple occasions.
In addition to treating patients in our dental office, Dr. Kaplan is involved in the academic arena of dentistry as well.
