Know Our Story
Our Milford, Connecticut dental practice was founded by Dr. Williams in 1945, upon his discharge from U.S. Service in World War II. Originally located in Milford Center, the practice grew so rapidly that Dr. Williams planned and built a large dental office in 1960 across from the Milford Town Hall. In 1988, upon his retirement, Dr. Chet Sokolowski took over the practice from Dr. Williams, and in 1990 moved the practice to its current location at Harmony Place.
Dr. Sokolowski continued the care of the practice and eventually left to pursue a career in anesthesiology. In 2009, after completing 6 years in private practice as an associate dentist, Dr. Edirisinghe joined the practice. In the years since the practice was founded, it has continuously grown, with doctors and staff—both present and past—taking a great deal of pride in the care we are able to provide our patients.
