Ed Francisco DDS is a very likable and relatable man. He’s a local guy who’s lived in the beautiful Hyde Park community of South Tampa since 1996. His residency at the University of Florida brought him to our state from Virginia and he decided this warm weather of ours was too good to abandon so after looking around Dr. Francisco decided Tampa would be his home. Each day begins with at least a mile run, sometimes two or more if he’s feeling up to it, and has the time before beginning his rewarding day, taking care of his patients. Dr. Francisco tells me the feeling he gets from running wakes him up and focuses him for the remainder of the day. He tries to eliminate stimulates such as caffeine out of his diet as much as possible so that he can perform at optimal levels with a steady hand.

 “Running gets me going, it’s my coffee,” he says with a grin.

He has a soothing sound to his voice is always smiling. I immediately can see why so many of his patients rave about how comfortable he makes them feel. I caught up with a current patient of Dr. Francisco’s and she told me, “From day one, Dr. Francisco has made her feel like family. I’ve been a patient for over a year now and everyone I know always has the nicest things to say about him. He’s so easy going and simply a nice guy as well as very honest and straightforward forward. He’s all you can really ask for in your dentist and it’s why I’ve referred him to many of my friends, co-workers and family.”

We always like to ask local business owners why they got into their particular field in the first place. Dr. Francisco knew from a very young age he wanted to be in the healthcare profession but it wasn’t until his sophomore year of college that he decided dentistry was the right fit for him.

“I always planned on being in health care of some sort. My parents were always a big influence. My Mom was an RN and my Dad was an accountant. Very quickly, I knew I didn’t want to be an accountant,” Dr. Francisco says with a laugh and a big smile. “My Mom always told me how rewarding it was helping people. She was an RN, a head Nurse, a director of nursing so she went through the gamut and experienced so much over her over 50 year career. I saw the stability of the medical profession as well as, for lack of a better term, my OCD which made me realize Dentistry would be the right fit and that hit me about my second year of College.”

Services: Hygiene, Bridges, Crowns, Fillings, Dental implants, Impactions & Wisdom, Periodontal Disease and Whitening:

In the early days of his practice, the whitening craze began and many of his first patients were primarily cosmetic. That of course has changed over the years but white teeth will always be in style. I’ve personally done the Zoom Whitening a few years back and it visibly whitened my teeth a number of shades and they stayed pretty darn close to the same whitened shade years later.

Maintaining good oral hygiene is one of the most important things you can do for your overall health. Regular Cleanings are imperative for keeping a healthy mouth. Preventative care is always easier than treating a mouth that’s been neglected but there’s no need to be embarrassed if you haven’t been to the dentist in a while because you will be in excellent hands with Dr. Francisco and his staff. If your teeth are showing signs of decay and cavities have formed, your dentist will remove the decayed portion of the tooth and fill the area of the tooth that was removed. Fillings color matched to your teeth are the norm now so no need to worry about unsightly metal in your mouth for people to see when you laugh. If crowns become necessary, nobody will ever know. Dr. Francisco does an excellent job color matching full crowns as well.

Most of the patients are between the ages of 30 and 45 but Dr. Francisco has patients ranging from 2 years of age all the way to elderly folks in their 90s!

 “I have multiple generations of patients coming in now and it’s really cool to see. Some of my patients came in as kids and now I treat their children. I really love what I do and I love the people of this community. I just want to take this opportunity to tell all of you THANK YOU!”
