Dr. Rubino's bio

This content was provided by Dr. Rubino " Dr. Thomas Rubino has been practicing periodontics since 1988. He has always been driven by the philosophy of providing the highest-quality results using the latest advancements in technology in a friendly and caring environment. He has stayed on top of all the latest developments in treatment through extensive continuing education, implementing breakthrough procedures as they have been tested and proven. Dr. Rubino is highly accomplished and experienced in all aspects of periodontics, including gum disease and gum recession treatment, bone regeneration, cosmetic gum treatments and full dental implant services. He is also one of the few practitioners in the U.S. who is certified to deliver the Chao Pinhole®Surgical Technique for treating gum recession. In addition to private practice, Dr. Rubino serves as an instructor for other practitioners and has been a continuing education provider in Florida for many years. He has received numerous awards for his skill and expertise and has achieved both local and national recognition for his work. Dr. Rubino is an Assistant Professor at the University of Kentucky College of Dentistry, where he is an attending periodontist with the periodontal residents during their time in clinic treating patients. Dr. Rubino loves being a periodontist for the change he can make in people’s lives and the relationships he builds with them as a result. “Seeing my patients’ quality of life improve so dramatically after treatment is what puts the joy in my job,” he says. “I also get to know my patients personally and build a bond based on trust and help. My patients are an incredible group of people and I am grateful to be their doctor.” Dr. Rubino is known for his friendly, caring manner and his attention to detail in every aspect of his work. Patients have commented that he inspires confidence when he explains what will happen in their treatment, and described how he puts them at ease when he answers all their questions. Dr. Rubino is a third generation dentist and the first periodontist in his family. His grandfather and uncle were both dentists, and he was exposed to their work at a young age. After seeing the relationships they formed with their patients and what they did to change people’s lives, he decided to become a dentist himself. Once in practice as a general dentist, he pursued periodontics as an additional specialty so he could provide an even more comprehensive impact on his patients’ health and well-being. Dr. Rubino received his Bachelor of Science Degree in Biology from Wake Forest University in Winston-Salem, North Carolina in 1979. He proceeded from there to the Medical College of Virginia, where he graduated with a Doctor of Dental Sciences degree in 1983. After three years in private practice as a general dentist, Dr. Rubino went on to complete two years of periodontal specialist training and residency at the University of Kentucky College of Dentistry, earning his Master of Science degree and Specialty Certification in Periodontics in 1988. Dr. Rubino has completed numerous continuing education courses in advanced procedures since obtaining his periodontal certification, and has incorporated these advancements into his practice to be able to provide the highest quality service possible. He maintains an extensive schedule of continuing education to stay on the leading edge of developments. Training other practitioners started while Dr. Rubino was in periodontal training himself. During his time as a resident at the University of Kentucky College of Dentistry, he worked in the undergraduate dental clinics supervising dental students. He has continued instructing his colleagues as a continuing education provider in Florida since 1990. Dr. Rubino has been consistently recognized in the community and within his profession for the quality of his care. Based on a survey and selection by his peers, he has been featured as a “Top Dentist in the field of Periodontics and Implant Dentistry” in Sarasota Magazine every year since 2011. He has also been rated and listed every year since 2014 in the Consumer Research Council of America’s annual Guide to America’s Top Dentists. Outside the office, Dr. Rubino has regularly donated his time and energies to local community activities. In addition to participating in numerous local charity events, he has coached the nationally recognized football and baseball teams at Manatee High School. He has also worked with the South Florida Museum and the Entre Nous Club Community Organization. Dr. Rubino loves spending time with his wife and three adult children. He is also an avid outdoorsman who loves running, biking and visiting Florida’s first-rate beaches. "
