Meet Dr. Kruszewski

Dr. Matthew Kruszewski (pronounced “crew-chef-ski”) is originally from the Washington DC area and completed a 7-year combined BS-DDS program at The University of Maryland. He then completed a General Practice Hospital Residency at The University of North Carolina, Chapel Hill where he obtained extensive experience in successfully managing medically complex patients. He completed his specialty training at the University of Nebraska Medical Center in Lincoln, NE and received his certificate in Endodontics.

Having gone above and beyond the minimum requirement to practice as a specialist, Dr. Kruszewski holds the title of Diplomate of the American Board of Endodontics. Also known as being board certified, this endeavor took several years to achieve. This places him in a distinguished group of specialists who have demonstrated exceptional knowledge and skill, dedication to professional growth, strong commitment to evidence-based dentistry, and desire to provide the highest quality of patient care. This honor is achieved by <25% of Endodontists and Dr. Kruszewski is the only board certified Endodontist in Tampa, FL; he is one of only a few in all of Hillsborough County.

Dr. Kruszewski has received extensive training in microsurgical endodontic techniques, microscope positioning, and the use of cone beam computed tomography (CBCT or “3D X-rays”). He regularly attends continuing education courses to stay current in these cutting-edge areas of the specialty. He is excited to offer his expertise to treat those teeth not suitable for traditional non-surgical root canal therapy.

The Doctor strives to treat every patient in a caring, gentle, and personable manner; just as if he was treating a family member. His attention to detail and quality-oriented work ethic ensure that you will receive the very best care possible.

Additionally, Dr. Kruszewski is a specialist member of the American Association of Endodontists, ABE College of Diplomates, the American Dental Association, the Florida Dental Association, and the West Coast District Dental Association. While not helping patients Dr. Kruszewski enjoys listening to high-fidelity audio, fitness, traveling and exploring the world, cooking, international cuisine, and giving back to his community as a Rotarian. He lives in Tampa, FL.

Why Choose Us?

We know that you have many options for your dental health care. Here are a few reasons why we think Modern Endodontics is a terrific fit for your Endodontic (root canal) needs:

Board Certified Specialist and Commitment to Quality

We strive to provide the finest endodontic care available in a comfortable and welcoming setting. We are a team defined by precision, competence, and likeability. We take pride in supporting one another to ensure we can deliver the very best care to our patients.

Our practice is comprised of professionals who take your oral health very seriously. Dr. Kruszewski is the only board certified Endodontist in Tampa, FL and is one of only a few in all of Hillsborough County. This places him in an elite group of specialists (less than 25% of all Endodontists in the country) who have demonstrated exceptional academic knowledge, clinical skill, and have a very deep understanding of scientific evidence-based dentistry. The American Board of Endodontics fully endorses only those Endodontists who have reached the pinnacle of their profession clinically and academically by becoming board certified.

Personalized Service

At Modern Endodontics, you aren’t “just a patient”. We treat everyone who walks in the door like family, truly listening to you so we can understand your unique oral healthcare needs. We take our time to clearly explain our procedures to you and outline the exact reasons you need them, including any alternative treatment options. We also answer all of your questions and concerns before we begin any treatment. If your recommended treatment needs are complex or unexpected, Dr. Kruszewski will call your referring dentist to discuss treatment before any procedure is initiated. This ensures that you receive the best continuous care possible, limiting any risk of miscommunication between our offices.

Once your treatment is complete, our office will provide you with a 24/7 after-hours emergency phone number to directly contact Dr. Kruszewski in case any complications arise after treatment. You will also receive a personal follow-up phone call from Dr. Kruszewski the day after treatment to check in and see how you are doing.

From the soothing scents that will relax you throughout our office, the comfort that our memory foam neck pillows provide, to the peaceful noise cancelling headphones that you can enjoy while watching Netflix during treatment, we do everything possible to put you at ease at Modern Endodontics.

We think you’ll find a friend in your dental professional during your visit!

Promptness and Easy Access to Advanced Specialty Care

Dr. Kruszewski and staff understand that your time is very valuable. We take pride in being able to quickly accommodate dental emergencies and have quick turnaround time on phone calls and appointment requests. If your dentist explained that you need a root canal and you are in pain, we are usually able to see you that same day; otherwise, we are usually able to see you within ~ 1-3 day period.

A referral from your general dentist/specialist is NOT required in order to book an appointment with Modern Endodontics. If you prefer having your root canal performed by a board certified specialist rather than your general dentist or simply do not wish to see the specialist your general dentist referred you to, Modern Endodontics would love to meet you.

Modern, Cutting Edge Technology

Using advanced equipment with efficiency and safety in mind, we are able to provide top notch care. As you tour our office, you will appreciate that everything is organized, clean, comfortable, and thoroughly sterilized. Your comfort and safety are our priority.

We have access to the latest breakthrough technology in our specialty including surgical operating microscopes, low radiation dose digital xrays, and Cone Beam Computed Tomography (CBCT, or “3D xrays”). These tools allow Dr. Kruszewski to treat you more quickly, efficiently, and effectively.
