Gregory Gertsen, D.D.S.

For those of you who might wonder about my accent, I was born in Kaunas, Lithuania to a family with a long tradition in medicine.

I have been dedicated to practicing dentistry since 1972, after graduating from medical school.

I have been interested in oral surgery since beginning my dental career. I completed my specialty training in 1979 at the Moscow Institute of Stomatolgy – the leading post-graduate facility in Eastern Europe.
My experience in dentistry is diverse. While practicing traditional dentistry at one of Moscow’s most elite dental clinics, I also spent countless hours in the head and neck department at the Oncological Center and the department of Trauma of Maxillofacial region at the Central Hospital.


In 1990, I relocated to the United States and settled in South Florida, where I continued to dedicate my time to the local community.

I underwent advanced dental training at the University of Florida. I am a firm believer in continuing education, and spend 100 hours every year in seminars and continuing education courses.

I am eager to continue my work in the dental field and to continue being helpful to the people and the community who have given my family and I the opportunity to live in peace and freedom.
