Dr. Michael Valancius


Originally from the Pittsburgh area, Dr. Valancius has been practicing in the Tampa area since 1981 after graduating from Rutgers University and Georgetown University School of Dentistry.  He finds dentistry interesting because of the people he treats and the dental problems to solve.  He is a skilled practitioner and puts his patients at ease with his gentle demeanor and talkative manner.  The father of six children, his hobbies are fishing, dogs, and sports.


Dr. Elizabeth Salvador

After graduating from the University of Notre Dame and the University of Florida College of Dentistry, Dr. Salvador joined Dr. Valancius' practice when they married in 1994.  She finds the combination of art and science in dentistry to be both intriguing and challenging.  Dr. Salvador enjoys taking the time to explain dental treatment and home care to her patients and loves the detail and fussiness that dentistry demands.  She is a mother of six and enjoys homeschooling, arts and crafts, and reading.
