Thomas A. 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.


Dental Surgical Assistant – Josh Chaitowitz

Josh has always been involved in the field of medicine; his father is a Vascular Interventional Radiologist at Jackson Memorial Hospital in Miami, FL. He moved to Boca Raton from Australia when he was 18 and completed his senior year of high school at Donna Klein Academy. He attended FAU and graduated with a Bachelors of Science in Biology and Exercise Science. While pursuing a career as a personal trainer, he began to dream of becoming a dentist. He enrolled into the Dental Assisting Academy of the Palm Beaches where he completed his Expanded Duties certification. He completed his required internship with Dr. Copulos and was added to our staff because of his passion for dentistry and his desire to help our patients. We are working with Josh to help him achieve his dream and enroll in a dental school in 2020. He has since fallen in love with periodontics, and hopes to become a periodontist in the future.
