Dr. Martin Szczutkowski, D.D.S.
Dr. Szczutkowski has recently relocated from Manhattan, New York and is very excited to join his family’s dental practice. A graduate of New York University (NYU) College of Dentistry, Dr. Szczutkowski completed his general practice residency at New York Methodist Hospital.
During the past four years, Dr. Szczutkowski benefited from many professional and learning opportunities while living in New York. In his final year of dental school he participated in an honours elective program at Odyssey House, a drug recovery centre. The program offered in-house residents access to on-site medical and dental care. Many cases encountered were often of greater dental and medical complexity, which provided invaluable experience that has significantly improved his skills as a dental clinician.
In addition, Dr. Szczutkowski was selected as a distinguished 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.
As a resident, Dr. Szczutkowski strived to learn as much as possible about as many subspecialties of dentistry as he could and continuously challenged himself. He developed competence in many aspects of restorative dentistry, full-mouth fixed and removable prosthetics, rotary root canal therapy, surgical extractions including wisdom teeth extractions, periodontal surgeries, and paediatric dentistry. Throughout his time at NYU, Dr. Szczutkowski participated in many lectures, study clubs, and continuing education courses while creating an extensive clinical portfolio.
During his free time, Dr. Szczutkowski enjoys jogging, cycling, and staying active. He is an avid traveler and plans most of his vacations either near the mountains or ocean, where he can ski/snowboard or surf and scuba dive.
