About Us

Thomas Copulos, D.D.S., P.A.

Since 8th grade, Dr. Copulos wanted to be a dentist. His personal experience with orthodontics and oral surgery sparked his interest in becoming a dentist. He focused his education, at Emory University in Atlanta, Georgia, toward going to Case Western Reserve School of Dentistry. In dental school, Dr. Copulos was at the top of his class and received many honors for research. One of his professors approached him and suggested that he would make a great periodontist. Dr. Copulos worked as a general dentist in his hometown of Miami for two years, and then applied for a Periodontal Residency program. He was accepted at the University of Florida and completed his residency in 1992. He started practicing in Boca Raton and opened his own office in 1995. Doctor Thomas A. Copulos earned his Diplomate of the American Board of Periodontology, a board certification, in 1995. He is a past President of the Florida Association of Periodontists and a member of the American Academy of Periodontology and the American Dental Association.

Her goal is to promote the health and wellness of every patient through education. She takes the time to adapt patient-specific care for their periodontal needs.
