About Your Dentist

Edward Shapiro, DDS

"Dentistry is the greatest profession in the world. My passion for dentistry has kept me on a journey of excellence which will continue throughout my career."

My Mission

 

"I enjoy building relationships with my patients, and tackling simple cases to the most complex, challenging cases. I seek to change people's lives though my skills and the wonders of modern dentistry."

Education

  • SUNY at Buffalo School of Dentistry – Buffalo, NY
  • University of Miami – Coral Gables, FL

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, Charlotte Implant Study Club, International Association of Comprehensive Aesthetics and a Fellow of the Misch Institute and International college of Oral Implantologists.

Life & Hobbies

Outside of dentistry, Dr. Shapiro volunteers at his daughters' schools for classroom and non-classroom activities. He also enjoys bicycling, scuba diving, photography, aviation and piloting (he holds an instrument multi-engine rating).
