Orthodontist in Tampa
Although Dr. David Leever was born in Michigan, he grew up in Tampa, attending Woodrow Wilson Jr. High School and H.B. Plant High School. He received his Bachelor of Science degree from the University of South Florida, his Doctor of Dental Surgery degree from Emory University, School of Dentistry in Atlanta, and completed his residency in orthodontics at the University of Pennsylvania in Philadelphia.
Dr. Leever utilizes his experience and innovation to create customized plans of treatment tailored to the unique characteristics of each individual patient. He employs cutting-edge technology, such as 3D technology, custom-constructed lingual Incognito™ braces, Invisalign® clear aligner braces, and PROPEL orthodontic micro-osteoperforation technology to accelerate the biology of tooth movement and shorten treatment times, as well as the traditional braces techniques.
Our office gives back to the community through the Smiles Change Lives program by providing orthodontic care for patients whose families otherwise could not afford. In addition, Dr. Leever is vice president and sits on the Board of Directors of the Temple Terrace Little League and regularly volunteers his time to provide care at the Christianville Mission Dental Clinic in Gressier, Haiti.
A life member of the American Association of Orthodontists, the World Federation of Orthodontists, the Societe Francaise d’ Orthodontie Dento-Faciale, and the Florida Orthodontic Society, he is also a participant in the American Dental Association, the Florida Dental Association, and the Hillsborough County Dental Association.
Dr. Leever has published and lectured in the U.S., Europe, and Asia. He has also received both U. S. and International patents for a dental device and technique that improves the accuracy of dental restoration construction, orthodontic tooth movement, and jaw surgery corrections.
