Dr. Martin Szczutkowski, D.D.S.
Dr. Szczutkowski graduated from New York University College of Dentistry in 2014 and relocated from New York City to his childhood home of Toronto in 2015. Dr. Martin joined his family’s dental practice soon after, simultaneously working as an associate at various dental clinics in the GTA. He completed his general practice residency in 2015 at New York Methodist Hospital. During his time at NYMH he laid down his clinical foundation and benefited from many clinical and professional learning opportunities while treating the wonderful community of Park Slope Brooklyn.
As a resident, Dr. Szczutkowski challenged himself to learn as much as possible about as many subspecialties of dentistry as he could. He developed a well rounded competence in all aspects of restorative dentistry as a result, including full-mouth fixed and removable prosthetics, root canal therapy, surgical and complicated extractions, wisdom teeth, periodontal surgeries, and pediatric dentistry.
Dr. Martin participated in an Honours elective program while at NYU, at Odyssey House, a drug recovery centre. The program offered its residents access to on-site medical and dental care. Many cases were of greater dental and medical complexity, which provided invaluable experience, significantly improving his clinical skills. Dr. Martin was also given the opportunity to become a member of NYU’s outreach team in Mana, Ecuador. This oral health outreach program allowed for a unique service-learning experience, providing dental care to an underserved population.
After returning home from New York, Dr. Martin joined the American Academy of General Dentistry (AGD) and has been an active member since 2015. He has completed over 400 hours of Continuing Education. In 2018, Dr. Martin completed the one year Timax Maxicourse Implant residency, gaining experience in both surgical implant placements and implant prosthetics.
Since 2019, Dr. Martin has been a member of the Spear Study club in his local community where local colleugues of interdisciplinary specialities get together to share cases and brainstorm many ways to help their patients, irregardless of the clinical challenge or financial constraint. He is an active member of the Royal College of Dental Surgeons of Ontario as well as the Ontario Dental Association. Dr. Szczutkowski strives to go over and above his educational requirements in order provide his patients the most ideal dentistry.
During his free time, Dr. Szczutkowski enjoys jogging, cycling, and staying active. He is an avid traveller and plans most of his vacations either near the mountains or ocean, where he can ski, snowboard, surf and scuba dive. Recently his family got a little larger and happier, as he and his wife Julia welcomed a beautiful baby girl.
