Dr. David Groy is an associate dentist at Gentle Dental Center, where he has proudly served the Virginia Beach community since 2015. Growing up the son of a dentist, Dr. Groy spent a great deal of his childhood in a dental office, and the principles of how to treat and care for patients were instilled in him at a young age by his father. Dr. Groy grew up in Leesburg, Virginia. He graduated with a Bachelor of Science in Anthropology from the University of Virginia in 2004. He earned his Doctor of Dental Medicine from Temple University, located in Philadelphia, in 2010. Dr. Groy then completed an intensive hospital-based general practice residency at Christiana Care Hospital in 2011.
When asked, “What would you like patients to know about you?”, Dr. Groy states,
“The keys to a positive dental experience include comfort, trust, communication and quality of treatment. At times, various treatment options for a patient can become overwhelming and confusing. I believe communication and having the patient play an active role in the treatment planning process, while valuing his or her treatment goals, is vital to excellent patient care.”
Dr. Groy enjoys all aspects of general dentistry, taking special interest in crown and bridge, oral surgery, endodontics and pediatric dentistry.
Outside of the office, Dr. Groy loves spending time with his wife Sarah, a Virginia Beach native, and their young daughter and son. As a family, they can often be found enjoying the beach, the aquarium, or any of the area’s local parks. Dr. Groy also takes classes to pursue his interests in both drawing and painting.
