Brian T. Shaughnessy, DDS, MSD
Dr. Shaughnessy was born and raised in Midland, Michigan. He attended the University of Michigan where he studied Cellular, Developmental, and Molecular Biology. While earning the highest honors as an Angel’s Scholar for consecutive ‘all-A’ semesters, he completed his dental school requirements in only three years and was accepted into the University of Michigan School of Dentistry. There he completed his Doctor of Dental Surgery degree.
Dr. Shaughnessy’s most impressive accomplishment while at the University of Michigan was convincing a beautiful girl from Webster, New York to marry him. His wife, Brittany, studied Music Education and Violin Performance at U of M. The two met through their involvement in the same Christian organization (Cru). They have been married twelve years and have three incredible children: Daniel, Camden, and Madison.
After completing his training, Dr. Shaughnessy practiced dentistry in Saginaw, Michigan for four years. During this time he completed additional continuing education that fueled his love for the specialty of endodontics. He was accepted into the University of Louisville School of Dentistry Graduate Endodontics Program where he studied under a former president of the American Board of Endodontics. In Louisville, Dr. Shaughnessy earned his certificate in endodontics in addition to his Masters of Science in Dentistry (MSD).
Dr. Shaughnessy loves to spend time in the outdoors. He became enamored with western New York and all of the beautiful lakes, waterfalls and hiking trails. He is also an avid sports fan with loyalties to the Michigan Wolverines that are superseded only by his boyhood love of the University of Notre Dame.
Dr. Shaughnessy is passionate about dentistry. He is involved with organized dentistry on many levels:
- American Association of Endodontics
- Board Eligible with the American Board of Endodontics
- American Dental Association
- New York State Dental Association
- Seven District Dental Association
He considers himself a lifelong learner committed to staying at the forefront of technologies and techniques. His goal is to offer you the most comfortable, enjoyable experience possible while helping you preserve your natural teeth.
