Your gentle, friendly, local Winter Park dentist.
Hi everyone! We met at Tufts University School of Dental Medicine, where we developed a lifelong friendship while studying 18 hours a day. After we became fully-fledged dentists, we ended up a couple of thousand miles apart – Dr. Constantine in Florida to pursue the dream of opening a practice, and Dr. Hall in the Midwest honing skills in general and advanced dentistry. Eventually the growth at Lakemont made it clear that an additional dentist was needed, and Dr. Hall agreed to reunite the team by joining Lakemont Dental.
At Lakemont Dental, we collaborate with the team to provide high-quality and affordable dental care. We believe in offering personal care in a one-on-one setting where we’re never rushing. The quality of our care is of the utmost importance.
Hello everyone! I’m Dr. John Constantine. I grew up in the Tampa Bay Area. I’m glad to be back in the Orlando community, and I know I’ll be here for a long time.
I have always dreamed of opening my own practice and love helping my patients at Lakemont Dental access high-quality and affordable dental care. When not in the office, I’m busy with my duties as a captain of the Air Force National Guard and volunteer at the Florida Mission of Mercy.
In my free time, I enjoy spending time with my family here in Florida and swing dancing with my wife (that’s actually how we met!). I look forward to meeting you and your family and helping our Orlando community smile bright.
As mentioned, I am from the Tampa Bay area and my entire family still lives here in Florida. My wife and I live in Thornton Park, right next to her family, including her brother, sister, and parents. We enjoy being so close to our family, which has been so instrumental to our success.

I went to college at the University of Central Florida, where I received a BA in anthropology while taking the pre-medical courses required for dental school. I then traveled to Boston for my dental education at Tufts University. Those four years were my best memories and also my most challenging period of growth. After dental school, I completed a residency at the Veterans Administration in Pennsylvania, where I received training in advanced dental procedures.
I am also an Air Force National Guard dentist. Once a month, on Saturday and Sunday, I head to Jacksonville to perform my duties for the state of Florida. I was inspired to commission due to a long family history of military service and my own experiences as a doctor at the Veterans Administration.
In addition to my private practice and duties as a Captain of the Air Force National Guard, I routinely volunteer for those in need. I use my clinical skills to help remove teeth that pose a serious risk of infection or are causing acute pain in volunteer settings such as the Florida Mission of Mercy.
In my free time, I enjoy swing dancing with my wife, which is how we met. We’re both involved in the local dance community, helping it grow and hosting workshops that bring well-renowned instructors to the Orlando dance community.
I’m glad to be back in the Orlando community, and I know I’ll be here for a long time.
I believe in offering personal care in a one-on-one setting where I’m never rushing. The quality of my care is of the utmost importance. I am very careful about the materials I use and the team of specialists we choose to work with.
You’ll often hear me say I treat all my patients the same way I would treat my mother, brother, sister, or wife. I hope you’re able to see the sincerity in these words the next time you visit.

Hello Winter Park! I’m excited to be a part of your outstanding community! I’m a Maine lobsterman-turned-dentist, and I’ve recently moved down to the Orlando area in order to join my good friend Dr. John Constantine in providing you with the best dental care in Central Florida.
As a native Mainer, the cold winter’s of my childhood were punctuated by holiday trips to Florida at every chance my parents could provide. Not long into my journey into becoming a dentist, my parents bought land on Pine Island, FL and broke ground to become ephemeral snowbirds. After just a few seasons traveling back and forth, they converted to permanent Florida residents. Having been to Orlando many times over the years, I’m currently looking for my dream house where I can grow my family as part of the Orlando community. After years of traveling, it will be nice to finally be near family again.
As a clinician, I strive to offer the highest level of care to every patient that walks through my doors, and am constantly seeking out new perspectives in dentistry to better myself and my patient care. Since an educated patient is a healthy and happy patient, it has remained one of my highest goals to offer an easy to understand breakdown of each treatment plan to my patients so I can be a truly comprehensive clinician while maintaining a high standard in my preventative and restorative dentistry.

My life started on a very different path than most. Growing up in a small seaside village in Maine, I was not expected to complete High School, let alone pursue college or graduate level education. In fact, I was actually discouraged from going to college by my high school guidance counselor!
With the love and support of my family, I attended St. Joseph’s College of Maine and received my Bachelor of Science degree in Marine Science. After taking time off from schooling to spend a season catching lobster in the cold waters of the Gulf of Maine, I returned to the University of Maine to learn the fundamentals of good science while earning my Master of Science degree in Marine Bio-Resources. Finally, I accepted an invitation to Tufts University School of Dental Medicine in Boston, Massachusetts. There, I not only learned clinical excellence on a strong didactic foundation, but also met some of the smartest and most talented people in dentistry, including your very own, Dr. John Constantine!
Throughout my career, patient care and education has been my top priority. From the basics of how to properly clean your mouth and build good habits, to breaking down the most complex treatment plans into digestible bits, I view my role in my community as an educator of self care paired with a skilled technician and artist who helps patients get the smile they deserve! I can’t wait to meet you and help you take back your smile!
