Cary A. Shatto, DDS

Meet Your New Dentist in Dallas, TX

Read Transcript

Native Texan, Dr. Cary A. Shatto was born in Houston but lived in the Dallas area as well as the Rio Grande Valley in South Texas. After enduring family hardships as a youth, he became a ward of the state of Texas. He was raised in a boys’ home and made the most of his years there, excelling in sports, agriculture, and academics. He also credits his experience with instilling in him the values of discipline, responsibility, and ambition.

Thanks to his achievements, he earned scholarships after graduating from La Porte High School in the Houston area. This enabled him to attain a bachelor’s degree from Baylor University. He then graduated from Baylor College of Dentistry (now the Texas A&M College of Dentistry) in 1992, fulfilling his dream of becoming a dentist. For the next six years, Dr. Shatto used his dental expertise as an associate in a local Dallas dental office to grow that practice into a new, larger facility. In 1998, he was offered a partner position but declined and decided it was the right time for him to have his own private dental practice in the Lake Highlands community of Dallas.

At his practice, Dr. Shatto emphasizes the complete dental health model. He believes there is an oral systemic connection, or direct correlation between the mouth and how it affects your body’s overall health. This philosophy of complete dental health and its connection to overall health helps Dr. Shatto and his team improve the well-being and quality of life for their patients.

After many years of practice, Dr. Shatto has the experience and expertise to provide comprehensive dental care, including orthodontics, implantology, cosmetic dentistry, and sleep treatment. Compassion and understanding are part of every procedure in his Dallas, TX office.

Dr. Shatto has been married to his supportive wife, Angie, for 20 years. The couple has three beautiful daughters: Shea, Maddi, and Jillian. In his free time, he enjoys movies, tennis, basketball, travel, adventure, dogs, and his family life.
