Gary R Gibson, DMD

Dr. Karen M. Schmitt, DMDDr. Gibson graduated from Nova Southeastern University’s College of Dental Medicine in 2017. Throughout his time in dental school, he made every effort to advance his education, and attended numerous continuing education courses such as those offered at the American Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry conference in Las Vegas in 2017. He was one of three classmates selected to travel to Irvine, CA, to attend a weekend course on CEREC dentistry and same-day crowns, and presented these lectures to his instructors at Nova.

Born and raised in Oviedo, Dr. Gibson attended The Master’s Academy for high school and stayed in town to complete his undergraduate studies at the University of Central Florida, where he graduated with honors. (Go Knights!) He and his family have been patients of Drs. Ross and Schmitt since 1996, when he was only 6 years old! Growing up in a practice dedicated to putting the patient first shaped his view on dentistry, and he is thrilled to be able to continue those values with his own patients.

When out of the office, Dr. Gibson spends his time with his wife Kristy, and their new daughter Brea. They enjoy spending time with family, reading, watching Disney movies, and participating in all that Oviedo has to offer.
