Nick L. Kavouklis, DDS
Meet Dr. Nick L. Kavouklis – Dr. Nick
Hello! My name is Dr. Nick L. Kavouklis, (a.k.a. Dr. Nick). I am a native Floridian born and raised in the Tampa Bay area. Following high school I attended Florida State University (Go Noles!) where I received my Bachelor of Science Degree in Biological Science. Upon graduating from FSU, I attended the University of Maryland, Baltimore College of Dental Surgery Dental School. There, I received my degree, Doctor of Dental Surgery (D.D.S.)
Following dental school I kept heading north, to the Big Apple to be precise. In New York I completed an optional, two year, general practice residency at Lutheran Medical Center in Brooklyn. At Lutheran Medical Center I took my education to the next level as I practiced and further learned all aspects of dentistry from Implantology to Endodontics. During my second year of residency I was named Chief Resident and again I was able to further my education, as well as help the new residents get acclimated to New York and their residency program. During this period I had the opportunity to moonlight in a private practice until residency was over. In the summer of 2008, I decided it was time to return to Tampa Bay.
To this date, I still continue to learn, not only from my father but also through many continuing education courses. I have become certified in Oral Sedation Dentistry and Invisalign and I have continued to take a countless number of classes on Implant Dentistry, Practice Management, Cosmetic Dentistry and Endodontics. I strive to be the best dentist I can for my patients and through these courses I hope to be able to offer them the best treatment and dental experience possible.
I currently live in St. Petersburg, Florida with my amazing wife, Tracy. When I am not at work or learning about dentistry, Tracy and I enjoy traveling to various places across the globe. When we are in town we like to keep things low-key, go to brunch, workout and spend time with family and friends. We also like to support our local sports teams whenever possible.
I look forward to working at Tampa Dental for years to come. I am happy for my father (Dr. K) and proud of what he has accomplished here. I admire his relationships with his patients and hope I can develop similar relationships with mine. I am happy to take on this challenge of helping to carry Tampa Dental into the future.
