Gregory A. Pette, DMD, MS

Diplomate of the American Board of Periodontology since 2013

Certified in 2011 at the Montefiore Medical Center to provide IV Sedation.

Dr. Pette is a graduate of USF, Tufts, and Nova Southeastern University specializing in Periodontology.

He has presented at the Academy of Osseointegration, The International Team for Implantology, and the American Academy of Periodontology. He has been published in peer-reviewed journals, such as the Journal of American Dental Association, International Journal of Periodontics and Restorative Dentistry, Clinical Advances on Periodontics, International Journal of Oral and Maxillofacial Implants, and Compendium of Continuing Education in Dentistry.

Practicing alongside Dr. Rinando enables him to focus on his area of specialty with all the latest technology that 6th Sense Dental has to offer, including Cone Beam Computed Tomography. Certified to provide conscious IV sedation, Dr. Pette provides surgical treatment while Dr. Rinando completes your restorations, enabling us to provide a full scope of treatment, often times in one visit. The ability to immediately load your implants in one visit eliminates having to wear a denture as you heal. A Florida native, Dr. Pette spends his free time fishing on his boat, golfing, playing soccer, or spending time with his family.
