This content was provided by Dr. Fleitz "I grew up and spent most of my youth in Indiana. After graduating from Indiana University School of Dentistry in 1995, I served five years in the United Sates Navy Dental Corps, both overseas and in the U.S., including a tour at the United Sates Naval Academy. I found my bride Kim in 1999; we married right here on the beach in Seaside in May 2000 and made our permanent home in the 30A community. There were not enough permanent residents in the 30A area at that time to support another dentist, so I took over an existing dental practice from a retiring dentist in Panama City. My practice in Panama City has been very rewarding for the past 15 years, but it is a dream come true to open my new office so close to our home, our daughters' schools, and our community. I love my job. I love meeting and talking to people. I love the privilege of being able to improve each persons's smile, which often helps him or her regain tremendous self-confidence. I enjoy the blend of the art and science that dentistry has to offer. However, the biggest reward of my career are the relationships forged with patients over the years. That is a true treasure! When I'm not in the office, you can most likely find me hanging out with my wonderful wife Kim, our two beautiful little girls Gabriella Grace and Zoe Katherine, and our two yellow Labrador retrievers Max and Otto. We love strolling on the beach, kayaking in the lake, doing most anything outside, and attending many community events and concerts. On Sundays, you may often find us at A Simple Faith Church or Point Washington United Methodist Church. I do have a few hobbies as well. Prior to having my two beautiful girls, I indulged in hunting and fishing, kayaking, hiking, scuba diving, European travel, fine dining, jogging, soccer, tennis, hockey, and watching college football and IU basketball. Now I "enjoy" sleeping, playing princess dress-up, and attending ballet and gymnastics classes! Seriously, though, I love my two little girls so much; they are what keep me going! We are delighted about our new state-of-the-art office conveniently located in 30Avenue. I would be elated and honored to have the opportunity to provide dental excellence and personalized service and attention to you and your family. We hope to have you as part of our 30A Smiles family."
