Orlando Lifestyle Dentistry has its humble beginnings. Just Michael, Kori, and a common love for wanting to make dentistry a better business for our patients and for our team members.
Michael & Kori didn't set out to create the most successful dental implant practice in Orlando. They don't have business degrees, nor have they ever worked for Fortune 500 companies. They are just hard-working entrepreneurs who've been blessed to responsibly grow an amazing small business that challenges the norm. In a world of corporate healthcare they've made their family their business, working together and supporting each other in the process.
Combined they've spent over 25 years practicing dentistry. Kori has advanced herself starting in dentistry as an assistant in the year 2000 then achieving her hygiene licensure in 2011. Michael has been around the dental industry since he was a child. He has owned a premier dental practice in Ponte Vedra Beach, FL that he built from scratch before selling it in 2012 to go work for corporate dentistry.
Kori and Michael worked together at the top volume dental implant practice in Florida and used their experience there to build their relationship. Orlando Lifestyle Dentistry was never really supposed to come to fruition but it came into existence when Michael and Kori chose Orlando as their home to set roots down in.
Michael's idea of helping was to use his unique ability to do some really amazing cosmetic work for his patients and working his standardized corporate job just wasn't cutting it anymore. After quite a few trials & tribulations we finally opened our own family operated practice together in February of 2017 and within the first week of launching we've had our weekday evening schedule booked solid... then our Saturdays...
In December of 2017, less than a year from starting the business, we moved our practice from our humble beginnings of renting one treatment room inside of the Universal Dental Spa to our own quaint space in Winter Park, FL. The newly appointed comfortable "Rustic Florida" themed waiting lounge gave Kori an opportunity to showcase her ability to design a beautifully elegant yet comfortable space that has resulted in a number of complements by our patients and visitors commenting on how posh yet livable the space is.
Today we have plans for responsible expansion and addition of highly trained & motivated employees. Most importantly, growing our relationship so that we can help others to a greater degree will be our focus.
