About Dr. Showstark
Dr. Showstark earned his dental degree from Tufts University School of Dental Medicine in Boston. He completed a residency at Mount Sinai Medical Center in Miami Beach, where he honed his skills in general dentistry and oral surgery.
Prior to beginning his dental career, Dr. Showstark was an orderly and trained to be a surgical scrub tech at Beth Israel Hospital in Boston, spanning the time he was in college through the time he went to dental school. While in school, Dr. Showstark also became involved with medical photography, where he pursued an interest in capturing 'before' and 'after' pictures of severe medical cases that illustrated both the strength of the human spirit and the amazing journey people could make from sickness to health.
Through the various experiences that Dr. Showstark has had through his life and professional career, he has developed a passion for helping his patients through their own journeys of healing. Dr. Showstark treats each patient as a unique and special individual, and he and his staff do everything in their power to create joy and healing in the lives of their patients. Through his work at his Gainesville practice, Dr. Showstark believes that he can create, 'A Smile for Everyone!' His joys are his family, his profession, photography, and meeting people.
Dr. Showstark’s dental center has an on-site dental lab that fabricates new dentures and provides repairs and relines, often with same-day service. Being able to provide dentures in a day is a significant advantage, especially for patients who have traveled far distances. The on-site lab also eliminates the need to use outside commercial labs, which helps keep our fees low.
Our highly skilled lab technicians have crafted thousands of dentures. Their training and experience are assets to Dr. Showstark’s practice and give you the confidence that your denture is being fabricated locally in Florida.
