Dr. Andrew Kuhlberg started his orthodontic career as a full-time professor at the University of Connecticut in 1992. At UConn, his interests in the biomechanics of orthodontic treatment developed. As an active scientific investigator of the role of biomechanics in orthodontic therapy, Dr. Kuhlberg has contributed many scientific articles and chapters in orthodontic textbooks, and has given numerous regional, national, and international presentations. Dr. Kuhlberg continues to collaborate on research to develop new scientific innovations aimed at increasing the efficiency and effectiveness of orthodontic care.
Dr. Kuhlberg graduated cum laude with a B.A. in biology and psychology from Hartwick College in 1984, and earned his Doctorate of Dental Medicine from the University of Connecticut in 1989. He continued his specialty training in orthodontics at the University of Connecticut and completed his Master of Dental Science in 1992.
Dr. Kuhlberg is a Diplomate of the American Board of Orthodontics. He serves on the editorial review board for The Angle Orthodontist, a leading scientific journal of the profession. We are also excited to share that Dr. Kuhlberg was once again selected for Connecticut Magazine’s Top Dentists!
Dr. Kuhlberg is a lifelong resident of northwestern Connecticut. He was raised in Barkhamsted and is a graduate of the Northwestern Regional #7 High School. There are few places he’d rather be than on a whitewater river. He has spent most of his life in or on water: a competitive swimmer through college and now an avid whitewater kayaker. Anytime he can, he gets outside, no matter the weather.
Dr. Kuhlberg lives in Canton with his wife Laura and daughters, Julia and Emily.
