Dr. Greg Goran Stoici was born in Timisoara, Romania in 1977. His family immigrated to the U.S. in 1983 due to the hardships of communism. His family lived for a time in Chicago, IL, then Ann Arbor, MI, and finally Pittsburgh, PA, where he completed high school. Most of his summers were spent in Romania working with his grandparent on a farm. Romania went through a democratic revolution in 1989. He was accepted in the dental school of the University of Pennsylvania, where he earned his doctorate degree in dentistry. After practicing dentistry in Philadelphia for a few years and the birth of his first son, he visited Sarasota and St. Petersburg and fell in love with the tropical environment. He and his family moved to St. Petersburg in 2009 and fell in love with the Old Northeast part of the city, where they purchased a home in 2010.
“In 2013 our second son was born, and we love living here. We go to the beach on Sunday afternoons to play in the sand and water, and watch the sunset. We love going to the parks, riding our bikes to downtown for ice cream, or strolling through the city. Looking back through the years, I would have never guessed I would be living here doing what I love doing, which is helping people in the ways only a dentist can. I am truly thankful.”
