David Scardella, DMD | Duxbury MA Dentist

David Scardella, DMD, FICOI

Dr. David Scardella grew up in Princeton Junction, New Jersey. He always loved playing sports and his passion for ice hockey first brought him to Massachusetts at the age of 16 when he attended Milton Academy. He then went on to attend Wesleyan University (Middletown, CT) and it was there that he decided to pursue a career in dentistry. Dr. Scardella received his DMD from Rutgers School of Dental Medicine (Newark, NJ). He then completed advanced training in a General Practice Residency at the Washington, D.C. Veterans Affairs Medical Center. During his residency, Dr. Scardella was able to expand his dental skills while treating a deserving and diverse patient base.

Dr. Scardella moved back to Massachusetts in 2013 and married a month later. He practiced dentistry in Beverly, MA for several years as an associate. He purchased Center for Progressive Dentistry from Dr. Santelli in April 2015. Dr. Scardella's interests within dentistry are vast and he is always striving to learn more. He takes around 100 hours of continuing education courses every year. In 2019, Dr. Scardella earned fellowship status in the International Congress of Oral Implantology (FICOI). Dr. Scardella is a general dentist and is especially interested in dental implants, crowns, bridges, and endodontics (root canals). He wants all patients to be informed and feel comfortable in his chair, so please ask him about any concerns you might have while undergoing dental treatment.

Dr. Scardella lives in Pembroke with his wife Jaime, their two sons Andrew and Tyler, and their dog Penny. His hobbies include playing hockey and golf and brewing his own beer.

"I have been in the dental field for 25 years, starting out with Dr. Santelli in Plymouth in 1990. I love my job as much now as I did back then. I'm a people person and like to make our patients feel comfortable and happy while in the office. When I'm not working, I love spending time with my family in Maine. Family, Friends, Laughter!"  -- Stevie

"I've been in the dental field for many years now, first as a dental assistant and then as a hygienist. I have been fortunate enough to work with some really special co-workers and I again join them with Dr. Scardella. I enjoy educating my patients and helping them improve their dental and overall health. When I'm not working I enjoy spending time doing almost anything outside with my family and friends and traveling with my husband."
