Dr. Michael Pannozzo grew up in Waterloo, Ontario but fell in love with Nova Scotia when he spent his summers with his family on the South Shore. Michael attended the University of Waterloo and Dalhousie University for his undergraduate studies in Biology. He went on to graduate from Dalhousie University with a Doctor of Dental Surgery degree in 2008. Following his dental degree, Michael continued his education by completing a General Practice Residency at the University of Alberta Hospital. This year long hospital internship provided him with extensive training in dental extraction, other complex dental surgeries and sedation dentistry. After completing this program, Michael returned to Nova Scotia to begin his dental career.
Dr. Pannozzo enjoys all aspects of dentistry, but has a special interest in dental implants and tooth extractions, including wisdom teeth. He is also one of only a handful of dentists in the province trained in intravenous conscious sedation. He strives to deliver an exceptional experience by providing the highest quality dentistry in a comfortable and relaxed environment. Michael is committed to lifelong learning and understands that both the needs of his patients and the technology available are constantly evolving. He remains very interested in furthering his education and skills and takes part in continuing education on many new and advancing areas of dentistry. He is a member of the Seattle Study Club, International Congress of Oral Implantologists and on the board of the Halifax County Dental Society.
Outside of the office, Michael and his wife Susan are busy with their 2 young children, Katherine and Owen. When time permits, he can be found attempting to golf or down at the family cottage in Hubbards trying to unwind!
