Richard K. Gyles, DDS, MBA
Dr. Gyles is a board-certified pediatric dentist with the American Board of Pediatric Dentistry. He earned his dental degree at Columbia University, College of Dental Medicine and has been practicing for over 17 years.
When he moved to Clearwater, Florida he had the opportunity to build from the ground up a pediatric dental residency program for a local community health center. Dr. Gyles was the pediatric dental director for the community health center and the associate director for NYU Langone pediatric dental residency program’s Florida site for over seven years before deciding to start his own pediatric dental practice. As the site director, Dr. Gyles was responsible for teaching the next generation of pediatric dentists. He shared his expertise and knowledge with dental residents to mold them into caring and successful pediatric dentists, many of whom have started their own successful practices. Dr. Gyles taught them behavioral guidance to provide dental care to the little patients in their chair including teaching them the skills to provide cleanings and exams, restorative dentistry, sealants, fillings, crowns, sedation, and hospital dentistry.
Dr. Gyles has now transitioned his love for teaching to teaching his patients and their parents on how to have and continue good oral health habits. He also has extensive experience in working with special needs children.
Dr. Gyles is very excited to have opened his very own pediatric dental office right here in the Belleair/Clearwater area and can’t wait to see your little one to help them start a lifetime of shiny teeth. This is a brand-new dental office with all private dental exam rooms. We do not believe in open bays for our little patients!
