Florida Temporary Substitute Dentist

Dr. Walter F. Zoller grew up in Hollywood, Florida and received his B.A. in 1977 from Washington University, St. Louis, Missouri.  His dental practice journey began after he earned his D.M.D. degree in 1980 from the University of Florida College of Dentistry, Gainesville.

The University of Maryland Hospital is where Dr. Zoller earned his Certificate of General Practice Residency in 1981. This hospital based training allowed Dr. Zoller to treat a wide variety of dental emergencies, proving as invaluable experience throughout his dental career.  After two years of private practice with a colleague, Dr. Zoller began his solo practice in 1983.

After practicing for over 31 years in Brevard County, Dr. Zoller sold his Port St. John (Cocoa) dental practice in February of 2012.    Serving the dental community was not something that Dr. Zoller wanted to discontinue.  He branched out by first by ‘launching’ Space Coast Dental Locum Tenens/Florida Substitute Dentistry.   This was followed by specialized training and certification in forensic dental identification.

Dr. Zoller finds it very gratifying to assist dental practices in their emergency times of need.  Being available and adaptable to different environments and situations is where Dr. Zoller excels.
