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:
- American Dental Association
- Florida Dental Association
- Hillsborough County Dental Association
- American Academy of Dental Sleep Medicine
- International Congress of Oral Implantologists
Dr. Katie Tulipano
Dr. Katie Tulipano, DMD, has practiced general dentistry since graduating from the University of Florida School of Dentistry in 2011. With more than 500 hours of continuing education, she loves learning about all the exciting developments in dentistry today and the positive impacts that they can have on the smiles—and lives—of her patients. As much as she enjoys explaining dentistry to her patients, it’s more important for her to have fun and build trusting relationships with them.
Although born in Grand Rapids, Michigan, Dr. Tulipano moved with her family to Bradenton when she was a pre-teen, and attended Bayshore High School there. She definitely thinks of the Tampa Bay area as home and is thrilled to join the Apollo Beach Dental team, near her family and loved ones.
She and her husband love animals and share their home with two dogs, three cats, and their son Joseph. When she’s not working with patients—or continuing her dental education—she loves to spend time outdoors, working in the garden and enjoying the beautiful Florida sunshine.
