Dr. Sean Gassett


Born in Daytona Beach and raised in Gainesville, Florida, Dr. Gassett had an early interest in dentistry. His mother was a well-respected dental hygienist in Gainesville, and he had an uncle that was a dentist in Tallahassee. This early interest allowed Dr. Gassett the opportunity to be accepted into an early admissions dental program upon graduation from high school.

Dr. Gassett earned his B.S., M.B.A., and D.M.D. from the University of Florida. He has worked and trained extensively to build a practice that exceeds your expectations of trusted, personalized dental care. Since then he has kept up-to-date on the newest developments in his field through numerous continuing education courses; including those in orthodontics, Invisalign, TMJ (jaw pain) therapy, cosmetics, and dental implants. He also remains active in the dental community as a member of the following associations:
