Dr. Gustavo De Oliveira, DMD

Dr. Gustavo De Oliveira was born and raised in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. In 1996, he obtained his DDS (Doctor of Dental Surgery) degree from Rio de Janeiro State University (UERJ). UERJ is a public research university (one of the largest and most prestigious universities in Brazil). Upon graduation, Dr. Gustavo started his first private practice in Copacabana, until he relocated to New York City in 2004. In 2008, Dr. Gustavo completed a post-graduate program on full-mouth reconstruction at New York University. The program expanded his clinical skills related to difficult conventional and implant-supported full-mouth reconstruction cases, with a primary focus on articulation and occlusion-driven diagnoses. Using computer-aided designs and CAD/CAM technologies, Dr. Gustavo refined his skills, creating aesthetically beautiful long-term prosthetics, with sound occlusion. Subsequently, Dr. Gustavo had the privilege of joining the staff at New York University’s College of Dentistry as a Surgical Assistant for another two years. During this time, he rubbed elbows with the highest level of implant and cosmetic dentistry and was able to observe and work alongside some of the most respected dentists in the world.

Dr. Gustavo moved to Florida in 2010 as an advanced-placement student at the College of Dental Medicine at Nova Southeastern University in Fort Lauderdale. He earned his DMD (Doctor of Medicine in Dentistry) degree from Nova in 2013 and the following year, he returned up north to complete a coveted General Practice Residency in Dentistry at Newark Beth Israel Medical Center. The residency at Newark Beth Israel gave Dr. Gustavo priceless clinical, didactic and hospital experience at the postdoctoral level. As part of this program, Dr. Gustavo also provided emergency dental service as an on-call resident 24 hours a day, seven days a week, working alongside an Oral & Maxillofacial Surgeon.

Between 2014 and 2016, Dr. Gustavo worked at a high-end cosmetic dentistry practice in Livingston, NJ as an Associate while he continued refining his skills at the world-renowned Pankey Institute, completing its four-year Essentials program. In 2015, Dr. Gustavo completed an implant mini residency at the Dental Implant Learning Center at Englewood Dental before relocating back to Florida to launch Lake Lucerne Lifestyle Dentistry in downtown Orlando.

In 2023, after many years of specialized training in the area of digital smile design, Dr. Gustavo became a certified Digital Smile Design (“DSD”) Master. Lake Lucerne Lifestyle Dentistry is recognized as a Gold Plus Invisalign provider and is Orlando’s first certified DSD Clinic.

Since its inception, we have placed well over 1,000 implants, solidifying our hard-earned qualification as one of Orlando’s top dental practices for cosmetic and implant dentistry.

Dr. Gustavo resides in beautiful Orlando, FL, alongside his wife, Madeline, and two sons, Dylan and Parker. He enjoys spending quality time with his family, outdoor activities, and playing the guitar. As a true Brazilian, soccer is one of his passions, and Dr. Gustavo is an avid supporter of the Orlando City soccer team.
