WHO WE ARE
Dr. Verga says, “I most enjoy the relationships that I am able to build with patients, their families, and the community. Watching patient’s self-esteem develop as they get a beautiful new smile is very rewarding.”
“Growing up I had broad interests in art, science, engineering, and business. Initially, it was very difficult to find a profession that satisfied all my interests. Wanting to help people with my unique combination of skills, dentistry provided the perfect solution.”
After graduating from University of Central Florida, Dr. Verga received his Dental Degree from the Nova Southeastern University College Of Dental Medicine. He was awarded his Orthodontics Certificate from the Georgia School of Orthodontics. He’s a member of the American Association of Orthodontics and the American Dental Association.
Dr. Verga grew up in Naples, Florida. He plays several musical instruments. He says, “I enjoy traveling, cooking, working out, anything in the outdoors, photography and valuable time with family and friends.”
