Dr. Michael Romani received his bachelor’s degree in human biology with a minor in chemistry from California State University in Fresno. Upon graduation, he was admitted to the Anschutz Medical Campus, School of Dental Medicine to begin his graduate dental degree. Early in his dental education, Dr. Romani and Dr. Thousand became great friends and worked on several research projects together, including topics that covered the effects of bone grafting on sinus pneumatization and techniques to reduce retained cement around implant-supported prostheses. Dr. Romani accelerated throughout his dental education, quickly showed an interest in surgical dentistry and committed to pursuing a career in periodontics.
Dr. Romani attended his three-year post-graduate training at the Medical University of South Carolina in Charleston. During his residency, he received extensive training in IV sedation, surgical extractions, complex implant placement, regenerative surgical dentistry including bone, sinus and soft tissue grafting, and the prevention and treatment of advanced periodontal disease.

During his three-year program, Dr. Romani volunteered at the East Cooper Community Outreach clinic weekly, where he provided free dental care to the underserved community of Charleston, South Carolina.
After successful completion of his master’s residency in periodontics, Dr. Romani joined Dr. Thousand’s practice in St. Augustine and Palm Coast, Florida. He is passionate about periodontics and strives to be a leader in the field of surgical dentistry.
