Boston Periodontist: Dr. Alexander Schrott

Periodontist Boston

Dr. Alexander Schrott is a highly trained specialist in the field of dental implants and periodontics, who received his training in Germany, Switzerland and the United States. He graduated from the University of Erlangen-Nuremberg, School of Dental Medicine, Germany, in 2003, where he received his Doctorate title (Dr. med. dent.) with magna cum laude. In 2007 he completed his certificate in Periodontology and obtained a Master of Medical Sciences (MMSc) at the Harvard School of Dental Medicine.

As a recipient of the ITI (International Team for Implantology) Scholarship in 2008, Dr. Schrott spent one year at the University of Geneva, Switzerland, where he exclusively focused on implant dentistry.  After continuing his focus on periodontics and dental implants for a few years in private practice in Germany, Dr. Schrott returned to Boston, where he completed the “Advanced Standing Program for Dental Educators” and received his Doctor of Dental Medicine (DMD) at the Harvard School of Dental Medicine.

Dr. Schrott is a Diplomate of the American Board of Periodontology and has been board-certified by both the American and the German Boards of Periodontology. He also is a Fellow of the International Team for Implantology (ITI). Dr. Schrott was appointed Clinical Instructor in the periodontal program at the Harvard School of Dental Medicine in 2012, after he had served there as a Visiting Lecturer since 2007. He has given numerous presentations on dental implant therapy and cosmetic periodontal surgery throughout the United States, Europe and Asia. Dr. Schrott has published several articles on implant-related topics in peer reviewed scientific journals and served as a reviewer for the Journal of Periodontology.

His research on dental implants was awarded the Balint-Orban Memorial Price by the American Academy of Periodontology.  In addition to being a fellow of the International Team for Implantology, Dr.  Schrott is an active member of the American Academy of Periodontology, the American Dental Association, the German Academy of Periodontology and the Massachusetts Dental Society.

Dr. Schrott was recently voted as one of Boston’s Top Dentists by Boston Magazine. He is humbled by this great honor and plans to continue providing the same high level of integrity, quality and genuine care that earned the esteem of his patients and their primary care dentists.
