His professional affiliations include:

After completing dental school, Dr. Shapiro continued extensive studies in cosmetic dentistry and has even instructed his colleagues. His commitment to the latest technology and his passion for dentistry has made him one of the best general and cosmetic dental providers in the region. If you have any doubts read the reviews of his patients.

When he isn’t using his artistic talents in the dental office, Dr. Shapiro enjoys creating original stone sculptures. You will see many of them throughout our practice during your visit!

The Right Cosmetic Dentist

Dr. Shapiro practices very conservative general and cosmetic dentistry. He is a proponent of  bonded dentistry and tries to maintain as much natural tooth structure as possible when restoring teeth and smiles. This means fewer crowns and root canals. He sees his dentistry as functional and very personal art. His number one goal is earning your trust and putting a smile on your face.

Dr. Shapiro has found that many new patients have had a lot of dentistry done “to” them and aren’t very happy. He focuses on doing dentistry “for” his patients with their ultimate satisfaction as their goal. He believes in treating people, not teeth.
