Todd E. Shatkin, DDS, has recently expanded his Shatkin F.I.R.S.T. business into a 13,000 square foot building on Kensington Avenue in Amherst across the street from the Aesthetic Associates Centre for Plastic Surgery and Dentistry where he has been practicing since 1989 with his brother Samuel Shatkin, Jr. MD, Board Certified Plastic Surgeon. Shatkin F.I.R.S.T. (Fabricated Implant Restoration & Surgical Technique) was developed by Dr. Todd E. Shatkin with the assistance of his late father Samuel Shatkin DDS, MD, a plastic and maxillofacial surgeon. Dr. Todd Shatkin’s revolutionary technique to replace a single tooth, multiple teeth, and even a full set of teeth in one short visit has changed the way dentists practice around the world.

The newly renovated building at 2495 Kensington Avenue houses the entire Shatkin F.I.R.S.T. team that is continuously growing, providing more job opportunities to the WNY area. A state of the art high efficiency laboratory is located on the second floor of the building which services thousands of doctors throughout the world.

One of the country’s most technologically equipped and well-resourced labs, Shatkin F.I.R.S.T. Laboratories, LLC produces high-quality restorations including, but not limited to, conventional crown and bridge, all ceramic restorations, implants, partials, dentures and temporary crowns. Their skilled technicians and knowledgeable staff members led by Mr. Valdemar Blaszak, Dr. Shatkin’s Director of Laboratory Operations, possess an average of twenty years’ experience crafting restorations with consistent superior quality. The lab uses all American made products which are FDA accepted and many of them come from Amherst’s own Ivoclar of North America, further supporting our Western New York economy.

Along with his unstoppable drive to grow his business and help the WNY economy, Dr. Todd Shatkin is dedicated to sharing his expertise, educating as many dentists on his patented procedure as possible. He has trained over 9,000 dentists worldwide helping them with the success of their own practices. He has traveled the world as well as bringing groups of doctors right here to Buffalo giving lectures and hands-on demonstrations. His latest project renovating the upstairs of his dental office will be a modern educational facility that can train over 50 dentists at one time when completed in January.

It is a fact that small and medium sized businesses help the economy and Dr. Todd Shatkin is committed to building a growing company with Shatkin F.I.R.S.T. to play a role in economic development efforts in WNY.
