Dr. Marcel Gegati, DMD
Dr. Gegati was born in Beirut, Lebanon where he spent most of his early childhood. At the age of 16, he moved with his parents and two younger siblings to Paris, France. Growing up, his family enjoyed taking vacations, playing tennis, and building fond memories together. His strong family bond has always made him strive to make them proud.
Dr. Gegati studied at École Pascal in Paris, France and received his Bachelors of Science. He then went on to attend Faculté de Medicine Broussais Hôtel Dieu for two years in premed.
After graduation, Dr. Gegati decided to expand his cultural horizons and spent time traveling through Europe. Throughout his adventures, he became fluent in English, Spanish and Arabic in addition to his first two languages (Hebrew and French).
Following his travels, Dr. Gegati moved to Montreal, Canada where he attended Faculté de Médecine Dentaire de l’Université de Montreal and graduated with a Doctorate of Dental Medicine. Over the next 21 years, he continued to practice dentistry in Montreal where he resided with his wife and two children.
Due to the cold Canada weather, Dr. Gegati and his family decided they wanted to explore a warmer climate, so they moved to Fort Lauderdale, Florida in 2004. He practiced there for the next 12 years before becoming an associate here at Great Smile Dental in 2016.
Dr. Gegati truly loves time at home with his family. His daughter is currently studying for a degree in business and his son is working towards a career in movie production. They enjoy playing tennis and ping pong, cruises, and spending quality time together.
Dr. Gegati has obtained advanced training in cosmetic reconstruction, implant-supported restorations, sleep dentistry, treatment under general anesthesia, rotary endodontics, periodontic soft tissue management and laser surgery. He truly enjoys getting to know his patients and helping them achieve their best smile! We couldn’t be happier to have such a culturally diverse and well rounded expert like Dr. Gegati on our team!
