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 Master of Science degree in Oral Sciences for research he completed in the field of Digital Subtraction Radiography.

Dr. Kaplan has been awarded many honors, including being chosen as America’s Top Dentist in the field of Endodontics for the past 10 years in a row, and as one of Better Living Magazine’s Best Doctors for Rhode Island and Massachusetts.

In addition to treating patients in our dental office, Dr. Kaplan is a clinical instructor and professor at Boston University’s School of Dental Medicine, where he teaches post-graduate endodontic residents.

Away from the office, Dr. Kaplan performs cantorial concerts, teaches tennis, and enjoys quiet time boating and fishing with his family. Many of his patients make mention of the “special” treatment they receive while under his care, as they are each treated to a cantorial rendition during their visit.

Dr. Kaplan is a preferred provider for many dental insurance plans including BCBSRI, DDMA, BCBSMA, Metlife, Aetna, Cigna, GEHA, UHC, United Concordia, and Connection Dental.
