We are thrilled to share some very exciting news that has happened at the office. Our hygienists Gill, Lori, Kelli and Colette have recently completed 60 hours of advanced training to become certified to administer local anesthetic.
By having hygienists in the office with the ability to administer local anesthetic the patient experience is made even more comfortable and pain free.
We are so proud of them for continuing their education and staying up to date with the latest techniques in dentistry. They truly are an asset to our team.

This weekend, Dr. Mike along with his son Jared treated some of the dental residents at the University of Florida to
a wonderful deep sea fishing adventure in Sarasota. Dr. Mike remarked that one of his best memories when he was a dental resident in Miami included a deep sea fishing trip and he wanted to give his residents the same experience. Joined by the famous Captain Brian and the Midnite Son, everybody caught plenty of fish and a great time. Some of the fish included Key West Grunt, Trigger Fish,and the biggest catch of all, a Gag grouper which had to be returned to the waters. All the dentists on board even took the
time to examine some of the interesting teeth on the fish known as a Sheephead.
A friendly pelican even joined the expedition. All in all, it was a lasting memory for everybody and if you ever need a captain worth his weight in gold I mean fish, call

Dr. Mike and one of his hygienists Melissa Manning competed in the Police Athletic League Half Marathon in Palmer Ranch. Finding out about the race only two and a half weeks before the start left Dr. Dorociak with little time to train.
But overall it wasn’t that difficult considering the way his wife Gillian keeps him running around the house. He even considered running 13.1 miles to be a a break, giving his wife the excuse he was simply taking out the garbage. As for Melissa, this was also
her first half marathon and she kept a steady pace throughout the course. One of Dr. Mikes fondest memories of the event came within two miles of the finish, as he was running through a neighborhood with the number 99 tagged on his shirt. “Give ‘em hell 99!”,
yelled a bystander with encouragement. Dr. Mike sped up with a smile on his face and a song in his heart.
