Mini Dental Implants were brought to W.N.Y. by Dr. Todd and his late father, Samuel Shatkin, D.D.S., M.D, more than 15 years ago. Together they brought an alternative to the conventional implants which can take up to 8 months to be completed. The mini implant can be immediately loaded with dentures or a fixed prosthesis to offer an immediate solution to loose dentures or one or more missing teeth. His continued research with minis and development of his patented “F.I.R.S.T. Techniques” has rocketed the Shatkin name to national and international name recognition.

Dr. Todd has placed over 15,000 mini implants to date with amazing results, changing the lives of his and other doctor’s patients in Western New York and the world. Need a second opinion?
