Dr. Shapiro received his undergraduate degree in Laboratory Psychology (Neuropsychopharmacology) from Rutgers University in New Brunswick, NJ. He then went on to complete his doctorate at the University of Medicine and Dentistry in Newark, NJ.

He successfully completed a Post-Doctoral Education Program in Advanced General Dentistry at UMDNJ, for which he received an additional Certification.
