A. Vandiveer Strait, DDS, FAGD
Founder / Executive Director

Dr. Strait grew up in Fairfield County, CT.  He began his interest in healthcare after receiving his Bachelor’s degree in Bacteriology/ Zoology from the University of Connecticut and then going on to a Master’s program in Bacteriology.  He decided that in order to be more involved in helping people he would pursue a career in dentistry.   He went on to graduate with honors from Temple University School of Dentistry where he received his D.D.S. and then obtained specialty training in Periodontics at Indiana University School of Dentistry.  Following this he became Chief Periodontist and Preventive Dental Officer in the United State Navy. He then became Owner and Director of Old Greenwich Dental Associates and The Connecticut Center for Cosmetic Dentistry as well as on the dental clinic staff at Greenwich Hospital.  Throughout his career, Dr. Strait has received many honors including: The Raymond Harris Scholarship Award, the Xi Psi Phi award for highest scholastic average, membership in the John H. Kolmer Honorary Medical Society and the James R. Cameron Society for Oral Surgery, Fellowship Award in the Academy of General Dentistry, and past president of the Greenwich Dental Society.  In addition, he was voted one of “America’s Top Dentists” by the Consumer’s Research Council of America and was voted to “Best Dentists in America” by his peers. He is currently a member of the Connecticut Dental Association, the American Dental Association, the Greater Norwalk Dental Association, the Academy of General Dentistry, and the American Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry.  Dr. Strait has made excellence a priority and his membership in the Crown Council, his offices and practice as well as his dedication to continuing education is evidence of this.  He has become certified in Periodontics, Endodontics, Implant dentistry, and Invisalign Orthodontics where he has achieved both Premier and Preferred Provider status.  Recently he completed advanced courses in Cosmetics and Neuromuscular Dentistry (TMJ) at the world famous Las Vegas Institute. To illustrate Dr. Strait’s passion for dentistry and for always improving his knowledge and skills, in the past year he has taken the following courses with some of the leading clinicians and educators in dentistry—“Emergency Medicine: Recognition and Management”,  “State-of-the-Art Anterior Esthetics”,  Invisalign Orthodontics- “Advanced case management”,   “Advanced Functional Restorative Dentistry”, “Oral Cancer: Risk Factors and Early Detection”,  “Clear Correct Provider Course”, and “Periodontal Plastic Surgery”.

His lectures range from the microbiology and testing of periodontal diseases to immunology, systemic antibiotics and anti-infective paradigms.

While Mr. Landers is the President of a dental company, his presentations are known for being scrupulously non-commercial. Science matters.
