Meet Dr. Scarpitti

Dr. Matthew Scarpitti was born in Jacksonville, FL and grew up in St. Augustine, FL. After a short time playing college football, Dr. Scarpitti earned his B.S. in Exercise Physiology from Florida State University. He worked as a personal trainer in Jacksonville, FL before moving to Miami, FL to pursue a Master of Science in Biomedical Sciences from Barry University

Prior to starting dental school, he taught in the human anatomy lab at Barry University as an adjunct professor gaining detailed knowledge of head and neck structures. He moved to Omaha, NE to pursue his Doctorate of Dental Surgery from Creighton University. While at Creighton, he provided care in every dental discipline while also rotating at the Omaha Correctional Center Ambulatory Dental Center, as well as One World Clinics and Charles Drew Health Centers, which provide care to the underprivileged within and around the Omaha areas. The unique clinical setting at Creighton gave Dr. Scarpitti the opportunity to gain exceptional experience in oral surgery, endodontics, periodontics, and prosthodontics. He performed numerous surgical extractions including full mouth extractions with the delivery of interim complete dentures, third molar extractions, and posterior crown lengthening surgery, all of which are normally referred to resident students in post-doctorate training. 

Dr. Scarpitti was trained on the most up to date endodontics rotary instrumentation, as well as the more traditional techniques. He enjoys the cosmetic and restorative aspects of dentistry, as well as crown and bridge, implant dentistry, and complete and partial denture design and delivery. During his time in dental school, he gained an interest in forensic odontology, studying under Dr. Ken Hermsen, a forensic odontologist and endodontics professor at Creighton University. He was mentored by and continues to study with Dr. Christopher Stanoscheck, a faculty member at Creighton University in the prosthodontics department, which is a member of the prestigious Las Vegas Institute.

Dr. Scarpitti is the current President of the Florida Academy of General Dentistry as well as a current member of the American Dental Association and Florida Dental Association. Dr. Scarpitti maintains a high level of Continuing Education to provide the latest technology and procedures for his patients.
