Dr. Gear's bio

This content was provided by Dr. Gear "Dr. Brian Gear grew up in Southwest Florida and graduated from Fort Myers High School in 1987. He then went to wrestle for Edinboro University of Pennsylvania and was captain of the team for two years. Dr. Gear was accepted to the University of Florida for dental school and graduated in 1998. Before he graduated, he realized he wanted a stronger implant, denture and restorative background. Dr. Gear then accepted a position in the Graduate Prosthodontic Residency Program. He graduated from the program with a specialization in Prosthodontics in 2001. Upon his graduation, Dr. Gear moved back to Southwest Florida to practice dentistry and raise his family. He was excited to work in the dental practice in Lehigh Acres. In 2015, that excitement extended to Fort Myers patients at our Caloosa Dental office on McGregor. Since 2001, he has proudly served the dental needs of patients from our Southwest Florida community as well as patients from Key West to Ocala. He is a member of the American Dental Association, Florida Dental Association, West Coast Dental Association, Lee County Dental Association, American Prosthodontic Society, American College of Prosthodontists, Florida Prosthodontic Society, and the Academy of Osseointegration. Outside the dental office he has been involved in helping, educating and coaching the local youth in soccer, wrestling, swimming, and church activities as well as volunteering his time with his own children and their activities."

Patient Comments (1)

Do not go to this Dentist. He does not stand behind his work. I will be placing a complaint with the Florida Dental Association. Once he is paid he does not take your calls and his staff is rude and condesendig.
