At Harvard, he was the recipient of several awards including the Impact Award and Milliken Award for his work improving access to dental care for individuals with special health care needs. Dr. Itty completed his pediatric dental residency at Texas A&M; University Baylor College of Dentistry where he was on staff at Children’s Medical Center and Texas Scottish Rite Hospital. During his time at Baylor, he received extensive training in sedation and caring for medically compromised patients. After residency, Dr. Itty served as part time faculty at Baylor while completing a master’s degree evaluating access to dental care for children with complicated medical conditions.


The doctors at APDO are excited to be able to offer Dr. Itty’s pediatric dental experience to the patients of the Scottsdale, Grayhawk and Shea areas.

Outside of work, Dr. Itty enjoys sports, traveling, hiking and spending time with his church, family and friends.
