He is a member of the American Dental Association (ADA), the Florida Dental Association (FDA), and the West Coast District Dental Association (WCDDA). He enjoys staying up to date with the latest technology and advancements in dentistry by enrolling in continuing education courses.

Dr. Girgis is committed to bringing the highest quality dental care to all his patients and treating everyone as if they were his own family.

In his spare time, Dr. Girgis enjoys spending time with family and friends, traveling, staying active by running and working out, and playing soccer and golf. He is also a huge fan of the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, Lightning, and Rays!
