Continuing Education & Professional Memberships
As a professional dentist, Dr. Shapiro began his post doctorate training soon after beginning his professional career. He became very proficient at most phases of dentistry. Later in his career, he was very fortunate to begin training at the prestigious Las Vegas Institute. Having completed the entire core curriculum, he was able to start changing people's lives who suffered from debilitating headaches and TMJ dysfunction using the science and principals of neuromuscular dentistry. He then trained at the Misch Institute for implant dentistry where he received his Fellowship. This led to further development in his skills for both hard and soft tissue grafting along with the technology and implementation of cone beam guided surgery for implants. His skills allow him to take care of most patients' dental needs and give them the quality of life they deserve. His education journey has been very gratifying and one that he hopes to continue. Dr. Shapiro is also a member of the American Dental Association, Academy of General Dentistry, Charlotte Dental Society, International Association of Comprehensive Aesthetics and a Fellow of the Misch Institute and International Congress of Oral Implantologists.
Life & Hobbies
