8/24/2020:  Friends & patients, we are very excited to welcome a new team member, Dr. Sidra Yaseen to Nayaug Family Dental.  She attended college at the University of Southern California, &  graduated dental school from the University of Pacific Arthur A. Dugoni School of Dentistry in 2012. She completed a general practice residency on Staten Island  before moving to Connecticut.  Most recently she owned a private practice in Monroe, CT, but she is most excited to begin practicing in South Glastonbury where she lives with her husband and young son. Her husband is a graduate of GHS, class of 2003.   Dr. Chiffer will remain in practice here, although with a reduced schedule, to allow for time away with his family.

 Please stop in to welcome Dr. Yaseen. We predict you will like her as much as we do.   -Nayaug Dental team

 3/30/2020 : Dear patients, friends & family. We are disappointed that we will not be able to provide NON URGENT care at this time, but feel it is important to follow the guidelines set forth by our professionals.  We had been hopeful to reopen on April 2.  Now we understand that we may not open for routine care until the end of May or June.

You may continue to use our main # 860-633-6167 to leave a message or to contact Dr. Chiffer for emergency care. 



3/18/2020:  In light of the national efforts to stem the spread of the COVID-19 virus we will be closing the office to patient care beginning today at 1 pm.  We are hopefully going to resume business on Thursday, April 2, 2020, but please be advised that it depends on guidance from our professional organizations & the government.

We hope that you all can stay in good oral health until business resumes. If you have an emergency, the answering service knows how to reach me.  Use the main phone number 860-633-6167 and follow the prompts to speak with the answering service.  

We will continue to monitor our email:, but we will be UNABLE to text you  from the office during this closure.

Best of health to you & your family - Dr. & Mrs. Brian J. Chiffer, DMD





 10/30/2018 - Have you ever been frightened at the prospect of having trays of impression material (GOOP) in your mouth?  Some patients find it triggers a gag reflex so it can be uncomfortable.  Through the new digital imaging technology in our office, you will not need to suffer any more.  We have a high definition Digital Scanner to send image files to the laboratory making crowns, bridges, etc...


2/14/2018 - Because we are always striving to make your dental experience better, Dr. Chiffer has invested in the Isolite Systems here at Nayaug Family Dental.  It is a system of isolating the area of the mouth needed for dentistry, suction to keep the area dry & the patient comfortable, and, if needed, a bright light. Please watch the video to familiarize yourself with the Isolite & Isodry sytem.


10/20/2017 - We are contracted with a large number of insurance companies so that your dental benefits assist you with coverage for services in our office. Please check for Brian J. Chiffer, D.M.D. in your network provider list OR just give us a call.  We are always happy to assist in verifying your coverages & benefits here. 


 8/25/2017 - We are elated with the new high definition intraoral camera & the large monitors we own.  Now when Dr. Chiffer sees something of concern, he can photograph it & display it for the patient to also see.  This is called co-diagnosis and we like that it creates a team approach to treatment planning for the patient's oral health.

 12/1/2016 - Santa is coming to for details. No ticket required

 9/1/2016 - SPECIAL -  For September we are offering our custom bleaching trays at $100 off the regular price.  If you ever wanted to have a brighter, whiter smile, this is the way to go!  Our patients like to have the trays at home and pick up extra bleaching gel after every cleaning. I invite you to read about teeth whitening by following this link on WedMD:


8/2/2016 - Just read some wonderful news supporting the use of SEALANTS - they offer a 70-80% reduction in cavities, where as fluoride gels, rinses and varnishes only seem to offer a 24% reduction. Please ask our hygienists to schedule your children to receive this valuable protective service.

April 2016 - Our practice will have a new name: Nayaug Family Dental.  Same great staff, same great service & care, just a new name. In 1633, when settlers arrived in this area, the Nayaug were part of the Wongunk Sachendom  and lived near Roaring Brook. Nayaug was believed to mean "noisy water." (Glastenbury for Two Hundred Years by the Rev. Alonzo B. Chapin)

 4/1/2016     We are carrying a supply of one-time-use bleaching strips by Sheer White.  The two strips are applied every evening for 5 days to provide gentle whitening to your teeth. The professional strength "bleach" solution will not whiten crowns or veneers.  We are able to offer this special at the cost of $20 plus tax. We also still provide a service of custom bleaching trays for use with solutions we offer.  These trays can provide you with many years of use. 

5/19/2015  Our office is now a contracted provider for Cigna Dental, Basic Plan, through State of Connecticut employers,  & the Cigna Dental PPO Network. This means that your co-payments for dental services may be lower than previously.

7/22/2015  Be sure to check your insurance company website. We are now in network with some of the plans for Aetna, Anthem, Cigna, Delta, Guardian, MetLife, Principal, Sunlife, & United Concordia.  We hope this makes quality dental care more affordable for you.

9/1/2015  As a thank you for referrals we are offering an incentive program of $25 to you and the new patient to our practice. We call it "Care To Share"
