Kevin Diep, DMD
Dr. Diep received his dental degree from Nova Southeastern University and his bachelor’s degree at the University of Florida. He is deeply committed to staying on the cutting edge of dentistry, always seeking opportunities to grow and perfect his craft. He typically completes over 40 hours of postdoctoral continuing education per year and has focused on cosmetic dentistry, restorative dentistry, dental implants, dental materials, and comprehensive care. His professional memberships include the American Dental Association, Florida Dental Association, American Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry, and American Academy of Facial Esthetics.
Dr. Diep is the best dentist in Melbourne, FL who believes in providing dental care to those in need. He is an active participant at Hands Clinic St. Lucie County and has volunteered with Project Hope International, traveling overseas to help underserved children and families. These experiences have humbled Dr. Diep and have made his work truly fulfilling.
When Dr. Diep is not creating beautiful smiles, you can find him spending quality time with his daughter Brynlee, family, and close friends.
“At Creating Beautiful Smiles, I hope that we can cultivate a warm, welcoming, and comfortable atmosphere for everyone who walks through our door. Above all else, we strive to provide unparalleled service and attention to your individual needs and to evolve with new technology in order to exceed your expectations.”—Dr. Kevin Vu Diep
