Dr. Cicortas was born in Romania and spent the initial part of his childhood there before moving to sunny South Florida in 1998. While completing his pre-doctoral education at Nova Southeastern University, he dedicated a large portion of his time to medical research and community service. It was this meeting of the mind and of the heart that led to his pursuit of dentistry. He was part of the inaugural class of the Lake Erie College of Medicine (LECOM), Dental School in Bradenton, FL, where he received training in the latest techniques with state-of-the-art equipment.
He then refined and mastered his skills in cosmetic dentistry, full mouth rehabilitation, implants, and surgery at the LECOM Outreach Clinic in Erie, Pennsylvania. Since graduating, he has been providing comprehensive care to the South Florida community from Lake Worth to Hollywood. Dr. Cicortas’ goal is to provide exceptional dentistry to his patients, in a caring and comfortable environment. He is involved in frequent continuing education in cosmetic dentistry and new emerging technologies such as laser dentistry and minimally invasive surgery. With a servant’s heart, Dr. Cicortas takes his skills to underserved communities in Guatemala and Mexico on a regular basis.
Dr. Cicortas strongly believes that the mouth is the “front door” to the body, and is an advocate of comprehensive, holistic dentistry that appreciates the interplay between mouth and whole-body health.
When out of the office, Dr. Cicortas enjoys mountain biking, kayaking and spear-fishing. His evenings are often spent playing cello – violin duets with his wife Cristina, and walking the boardwalk with their son Jacob, and daughter Sophia.
