Meet Dr. Thomas Albert

Dr. Albert graduated from the University of Florida in 1993 with a Bachelor of Science degree in Microbiology. He is a native Floridian and a third-generation “Gator.” He attended the University of Florida College of Dentistry, where he received numerous honors and awards for both academic and clinical excellence. Dr. Albert graduated with a Doctor of Dental Medicine (D.M.D.) degree in 1997 and immediately joined the United States Air Force as a general dentist, attaining the rank of Captain. He served for over three years at Barksdale Air Force Base in Bossier City, Louisiana, where he also completed an Advanced Education in General Dentistry (AEGD) training residency.

Dr. Albert spent two additional years at New York University, receiving specialty training in orthodontics. This specialty training focused heavily on craniofacial growth and development as well as all aspects of orthodontic theory and practice. At the conclusion of his residency, Dr. Albert received the Theodore Jerrold Memorial Award as the most outstanding orthodontist in his residency class.

Dr. Albert is a part-time faculty member of the University of Florida Pediatric Dentistry satellite program in Collier County. He is also a past-president of the Collier County Dental Association.

Dr. Albert lives in Naples with his wife, Janine, and they have been married for over 20 years. They are the proud parents of their daughter, Ella, and their twin sons, Aidan and Adam. The Albert family enjoys spending time with their families in Naples and Tampa, as well as worshiping and serving with their local church family. They also enjoy visiting their Italian relatives abroad and skiing and snowboarding whenever there is an opportunity. Dr. Albert has also been known to run the occasional marathon, triathlon, or “Tough Mudder” endurance challenge.
