Dr. Bidra is a board-certified maxillofacial prosthodontist and director of the Prosthodontics Residency Program at UConn School of Dental Medicine. He teaches advanced prosthodontics, subcrestal prosthodontics (implant surgery) and maxillofacial prosthodontics to post-graduate dental residents. He lectures on dental implants at regional, national and international meetings, as well as published extensively on implant surgery and prosthodontics in international scientific journals. He has developed diagnostic, treatment and maintenance protocols for full arch fixed implant prostheses (hybrid prosthesis) that are used by many clinicians and prosthodontics programs in the United States. He has invented implant prosthetic components and is a co-inventor of an implant design.

Dr Bidra's practice is external to UConn and is limited to advanced prosthodontics and implant surgery (subcrestal prosthodontics) with an emphasis on esthetics and full arch fixed implant bridges.
