After earning his dental degree from the NYU School of Dentistry Dr. Robert Florio completed a two-year externship at the Albert Einstein School of Medicine for Advanced Continuing Education in periodontal surgery. This extensive externship included a surgical residency along with lecture studies. In addition to his residency at the Albert Einstein School of Medicine, Dr. Florio also completed a two-year externship at Nassau County Medical Center for oral surgery. This too entailed a two-year surgical residency. Once the residency was completed he chose to remain on the staff for an additional five years as a general dental consultant to the oral surgery department. Dr. Florio's love of learning and searching for answers in the treatment of dental diseases has led him to extensively pursue advanced continuing education studies in dental cosmetics, jaw disorders, and full-mouth rehabilitation from two of the world's most prestigious dental institutions: the Pankey Institute for Post Graduate Education and the Las Vegas Institute for Advanced Cosmetic Dentistry, where only a hand- full of dentists worldwide have completed this rigorous training. He has completed 5 continuums at the Pankey Institute for Postgraduate Continuing Education. He is also a graduate of the Center for Professional Advancement in Arizona. Dr. Florio maintains active memberships in numerous professional organizations, including the American Dental Association, New York State Dental Society, and the Nassau County Dental Society. His commitment to advanced training and technology allows him to offer his patients a high level of care, with special interest for those with TMJ (Temporomandibular joint) disorders and those wanting to improve their self-confidence and self-esteem with smile makeovers. He is passionate about incorporating new products and materials into his dental practice. Dr. Florio and his wife, Carolyn, have two wonderful children, Nicole and Eric, and two beautiful grandchildren. In his spare time, you might find him on the basketball court or riding his bicycle. And on sunny days he may steal away for relaxation on the beach.

Excellent service! I had a lot of pain from an old root canal and they took me in that day. They've addressed the issue and my next appointment to fix the root canal was made immediately. Can't imagine going anywhere else after this great experience.
Rockville Centre, NY |
The experience with Dr. Florio and his staff was truly the best interaction I have had with another person/company. I had my mouth completely transformed, from tooth whitening, to space filling, to fixing chips in my teeth. I have never written a review for anything before but his work is truly amazing. Each appointment I had, which was about 10-12 appointments I was greeted so nicely by Jill and the staff. My smile has completely transformed. A true gentleman who is an expert at his craft.
