Dentist - Middletown, NY
Meet Dr. Scott Udoff
Why I Became a Dentist
Dr. Scott Udoff is a general dentist who approaches his craft with precision and expertise, cultivated through years of rigorous study. His passion for dentistry began on the West Coast with a love for scuba diving where Dr. Scott Udoff wanted to understand the underwater world. He became more intrigued with the chemistry of the ocean than its inhabitants and shifted his undergrad degree from marine biology to chemistry. In 1997, Dr. Scott Udoff earned his Bachelor of Science in chemistry from the University of Santa Cruz and with the encouragement of his mentor continued on for graduate work in chemistry. Dr. Udoff was at an extended family social event and found himself only talking about his research. He was not connecting to the people around him in a meaning way. Dr. Udoff soon realized that he wanted to be in a profession where he can create relationships, cultivate hope and empower freedom of choice for a better life. With his love of science and working with his hands and ability to form lasting meaningful relationships he was lead into to dentistry. He made a cross-country move to continue his education at the distinguished University of Medicine and Dentistry of New Jersey, where he was awarded his D.M.D. in 2005. Dr. Udoff conducted his general practice residency at the VA of New Jersey in 2006.
My Dental Education
After earning his credentials, Dr. Udoff continued to hone his skills by pursuing continuing education beyond that of most dentists. His passion for helping patients achieve optimal oral health first brought Dr. Udoff to the prestigious Pankey Institute for Comprehensive Oral Rehabilitation. He then partnered with the Schuster Center for dental professional excellence. Dr. Udoff further pursued his desire to help his patients reach excellent health at Occlusion Connections, the center for Gneromuscular Dentistry and Orthopedic Advancement. He now bridges together optimal oral, systemic, and total body health in what he has coined as Total Body Dentistry.
