For those of you who might wonder about my accent, I was born in Kaunas, Lithuania to a family with a long tradition in medicine.
I have been dedicated to
practicing dentistry since 1972, after graduating from medical school.
I have been interested in oral surgery since beginning my dental career. I completed my specialty training in 1979 at the Moscow Institute of Stomatolgy - the leading post-graduate facility in Eastern Europe.
My experience in dentistry is diverse. While practicing traditional dentistry at one of Moscow's most elite dental clinics, I also spent countless hours in the head and neck department at the Oncological Center and the department of Trauma of Maxillofacial region at the Central Hospital.
In 1990, I relocated to the United States and settled in South Florida, where I continued to dedicate my time to the local community.
I underwent advanced dental training at the University of Florida. I am a firm believer in continuing education, and spend 100 hours every year in seminars and continuing education courses.
I am eager to continue my work in the dental field and to continue being helpful to the people and the community who have given my family and I the opportunity to live in peace and freedom.

I was greeted cheerfully by Liz, and as soon as my paperwork was done, Rebecca was addressing my specific concerns. In addition to a couple X-rays, she also took actual pics of the teeth in question, from inside my mouth, from various angles, with this ingenious little flash camera at the end of a dental tool.. I've never had that done before, and it certainly gives added perspective! Dr. Gertsen was even nicer and more expert than I expected! With a relatively simple procedure, he completely eradicated pain I have been suffering with for a very long time! I also appreciated that he complimented work done by my previous dentist. I'm glad to now be able to get that good quality dental care plus have a wonderful and considerate staff and pleasant atmosphere!

I do not have dental insurance and the Dr. gave what I considered a reasonable price for the work done.
