Meet Our Doctor

  • Meet Dr. Brian Leeson

    Dr. Brian Leeson

    Dr. Brian Leeson joined the Modern Day Smiles team in the Fall of 2017. He is the exclusive provider at our Tampa location, where he specializes in general, cosmetic and emergency dentistry. Dr. Leeson is passionate about providing a comfortable dental experience for his patients in an environment that makes every patient feel like family. It is his goal to listen to the wants and needs of each patient so he can provide them with the best care possible. His aspiration to become a dentist began at the age of ten after a pleasant experience at a dental appointment helped him conquer his fear of needles. With the goal in mind to one day provide patients with the same compassion and care that he received, he began collecting experience and education. Dr. Leeson attended Rutgers University for his undergraduate studies and continued his education at Temple University in Philadelphia where he earned his Doctorate in Dental Medicine. Tired of the snowy winters in the northeast, he relocated to the "Sunshine State" where he settled in St. Petersburg, Florida with his fiancee. When he is not in the office, Dr. Leeson enjoys spending his free time exploring the outdoors, staying active, participating in different sports, boating, cooking and brewing beer. In addition to Dr. Leeson's many different extracurricular activities, he enjoys making the time to give back to the community, and every year he participates in the Florida Mission of Mercy outreach program.

He later attended the University of Florida and majored in Economics to learn broader aspects of the world, but soon he became interested in becoming a dentist. He wanted a career that would be helpful to his community and was more hands on on a day-to-day basis, so he began shadowing dentists and found that he loved the routine as well as the unique aspects of dentistry. He attended Nova Southeastern for his doctorate education in dentistry.

    Upon graduating, he moved back to the Tampa area and began his career. After years of experience and rotation through multiple clinics as an associate of another practice, he decided to make the transition to opening his own practice.
