But first, you can start getting to know Dr. Heim by reading on below.
Dr. Brad Heim had an unusual orthodontic problem during his childhood, so his parents took him to see Dr. Risinger, an orthodontist in Glastonbury. Dr. Risinger always took the time to explain what he was doing and answered all of Dr. Heim’s questions. Dr. Risinger became his role model, and he motivated Dr. Heim to pursue dentistry, as a career that would allow him to help people, work with his hands, and challenge his intellect at the same time.
Dr. Heim graduated from The University of Connecticut School of Dental Medicine in 1985 and completed a general practice residency at The University of Rochester. He joined the dental practice of Dr.William Liebman in Glastonbury in 1986.
Dr. Heim’s lifelong pursuit of continuing education has resulted in many awards. He achieved Mastership in The Academy of General Dentistry (AGD) in 2011. The Mastership Award is the highest honor available in the AGD and one of the most respected designations in general dentistry.
