Top Doctors 2022: Michael P. Costabile, DMD

Dentistry

SPECIALTIES: Cosmetic and General Dentistry

UNDERGRADUATE EDUCATION: B.S., Biology, The College of New Jersey

DENTAL TRAINING: Doctor of Dental Medicine, Nova Southeastern University College of Dental Medicine, Ft. Lauderdale, FL

From the age of four, growing up in New Jersey, Dr. Michael P. Costabile had a friend next door whose dad was a dentist. “I always wanted to be a dentist too; I wanted to live in Florida, have a convertible and a dog…I’m now a dentist, I had a convertible for over 10 years, I have four dogs, two kids and two practices,” chuckles Costabile, who has fulfilled his dental dreams between his Boca Raton and Wilton Manors practices since 2009.

“I perform almost everything in dentistry from basic cleanings, new patient exams, oral cancer screenings, fillings, crowns, bridges, implants, root canals, extractions, veneers and Botox®. I can even do same day crowns depending on the cases. We use very high-end digital technology to scan the teeth and then we have a milling unit so that we can make our own crowns in the office,” he explains.

Costabile does his best to customize treatments to patients’ needs by understanding what their experiences have been in the past and trying to overcome some of those difficulties. He reflects, “Like anything else in life, the first step is admitting you have a problem. So, if you’ve already taken that step and you’ve come into our office, you’ve overcome probably the biggest hurdle. From there, it’s just a matter of us figuring out what makes you tick, what is it that makes you apprehensive and how we get around that. If you truly understand where patients are coming from, and respect that, it makes your life and theirs a whole lot better.”
