For Dr. Lepore, average has never been enough, especially when it comes to his family and his patients. This philosophy stems from a phrase he dad instilled in him as a young boy, “maximize your potential”. These three simple words have weaved through every part of his life, including how hard he worked at playing hockey growing up, to how much he studied and continues training in dentistry, and to striving to be the best husband and dad he can be for his family. You’ll find he applies this principle to his patients too-- he wants to empower you to be your best, healthiest self and improve your overall quality of life.
Dr. Lepore was born in Pittsburgh Pennsylvania but grew up locally right here in Pinellas County, attending Tarpon Springs High School. He attended the University of Florida for undergraduate and dental school studies and held a job all throughout dental school. In addition to caring for your health, Dr. Lepore enjoys meeting patients and building lasting relationships. He and his team will be there to make you laugh if you’re scared and there to listen if you have concerns. His goal is for you to leave the office feeling as though you can trust, with confidence, in the recommendations and treatment you receive.
When the lab coat comes off, you’ll find Dr. Lepore going out for dinner and drinks with his wife, goofing off with his two young children (Luca and Melina), attending church, watching hockey, and spending quality time with friends.
