Mitch Zientz, DMD
Dr. Mitch Zientz grew up in Port St Lucie, on the Treasure Coast of south Florida. He and his beautiful wife Anastasia have a baby boy named Milo. You can catch him jogging or riding his bike along the Brooklyn waterfront, playing basketball at the Brooklyn bridge park, and often at a Mets or Nets game. There is a good chance the tunes you enjoy in the office are the result of a carefully curated mix or hand picked playlist by Dr. Zientz.
Dr. Zientz attended Oral Roberts University in Tulsa, OK where he earned a B.S. in Biology with honors. He then went on to receive his Doctorate in Dental Medicine at the University of Florida.
