About Me

Dr. Maidans is a licensed general dentist who's been helping patients in New England since 2016. He acquired Dr Fales’ practice with the aim of offering patients a new kind of experience at the dentist’s office. His goal is for patients to enjoy being in his office and to offer them an educational, transparent, high quality, and gentle experience.

Originally from Latvia, Dr. Maidans came to the United States and moved to North Carolina at the age of 17. After receiving his undergraduate degrees in North Carolina, he moved to Virginia where he attended Virginia Commonwealth University School of Dentistry. 

In Virginia, Dr. Maidans worked in private practice for a year and then moved to practice in California together with his wife, Yalda Shahriari-Maidans. In summer 2016, Dr. Maidans joined his wife, after she received a faculty position in Biomedical Engineering at the University of Rhode Island.

Beyond just helping his patients relax, Dr. Maidans is committed to working with his patients as partners. He focuses on offering preventive dental care and keeping his patients healthy. When patients need more than a routine check up, he makes sure they understand his recommendations and can make well informed decisions about their dental care.

He and his team offer a wide range of general dentistry services, including: preventive care, cosmetic, prosthetic, restorative, periodontal work, Invisalign placement, and oral surgery.


Dr. Maidans is a member of the American Dental Association, Connecticut Dental Association, and the Academy of General Dentistry. Originally from Riga, Latvia, Dr. Maidans graduated from University of North Carolina at Charlotte with Bachelor degrees in Chemistry, Biology, and Mathematics. He completed dental school at the Medical College of Virginia (now VCU) School of Dentistry.

Personal Interests

When he's not at work, Dr. Maidans enjoys everything outdoors, so make sure to ask him about his most recent mountain bike ride!
