Meet The Team

 
Our team at Schinto Dental is committed to providing superior dental care so that each patient can achieve and maintain optimal dental health throughout their lifetime.

In 1930, the Schinto Dental practice was started by John J. Schinto, Sr. who opened at the top of Greenwich Avenue. He practiced there for 40 years before his son, John J. Schinto, Jr. joined the practice and moved it to Riverside in 1984. In 1995, John J. Schinto, III joined as a third generation dentist and in 2005 relocated and completed a state of the art office just across the Greenwich/Stamford border.

Schinto Dental has embraced the latest technology in dentistry today while never sacrificing the personal touch to which his patients have been accustomed to.

Dr. John J. Schinto, III graduated from the Medical College of Virginia in 1995 and received his bachelor’s degree from the University of Richmond in 1991. Dr. Schinto belongs to the Academy of General Dentistry, the American Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry, the American Dental Association, the Connecticut State Dental Association and the Greenwich Dental Association. He also volunteers at the Greenwich Hospital Dental Clinic which his grandfather, John. J. Schinto, Sr. helped found. Dr. Schinto has a strong interest in restorative, cosmetic and family dentistry. He is driven by his mission statement as he continues annual continuing education courses, and is committed to advances in technology which he eagerly implements in his clinical and practice management of his new state of the art office.

Dr. Schinto is celebrating 10 years of marriage in 2007 to his wife Elizabeth and he is the father of three children, John IV, Taylor and Benjamin. The family enjoys sailboat racing on his boat Hurricane, swimming, snow skiing, bike riding and the annual trip to the Outer Banks of North Carolina and Walt Disney World.
