Meet Our Team
Dr. Michael Gostigian
Dr. Michael Gostigian graduated with honors from Stetson University with a Bachelor of Science degree in Biology. He went on to attend Nova Southeastern University where he received his Doctor of Dental Medicine (DMD) degree. Dr. Gostigian was born in New York and grew up in Fort Myers, FL.
Dr. Gostigian comes from a family of healthcare professionals, and their example inspired him to help others. As an entrepreneurial spirit and creative thinker, Dr. Gostigian was motivated to open his own dental practice, focusing on upscale, personalized dental care.
He stays current with the latest advances in dentistry to provide his patients with the best dental care available and is an experienced Invisalign provider. Dr. Gostigian is a member of the American Dental Association, the Florida Dental Association, the Lee County Dental Society, and the Academy of General Dentistry.
Dr. Gostigian and his wife, Brandie, are the proud “parents” of a Chiweenie (Dachshund/Chihuahua mix) named Leo. He played hockey in high school, and, as a native New Yorker, is a loyal New York Rangers fan. In his spare time, he enjoys reading, traveling, and studying the stock market.
“I really enjoy the independence of owning my own practice and supporting the community where I grew up. My personal approach to dentistry is that time spent educating a patient takes the fear out of dentistry and results in a happier patient."
Debbie - Business Assistant
Debbie is the face and voice of Bonita Grande. Anyone who has called or visited our office has encountered Debbie’s bubbly personality.

Stacey's twenty years of experience in the dental field help ensure our patients receive the highest quality care. She loves to see the confidence people gain when they have a beautiful, healthy smile. When she is not taking x-rays and assisting Dr. Gostigian, Stacey is spending time with her family. She has been married almost twenty years and has four daughters and two grandchildren! When you see Stacey, ask her about the summer she spent working at a salmon fishery in Alaska!
