Meet Dr. Jakubowski
Dr. Jakubowski is the newest member of Bay Center for Oral & Implant Surgery, joining Dr. Horner and Dr. Jones in 2013. He was born and raised in Wisconsin, attending the University of Wisconsin for his undergraduate education and is truly a “midwesterner” at heart. He then decided to follow his father’s footsteps into the career of dentistry, moving to Fort Lauderdale to complete his dental training at Nova Southeastern University.
While at dental school he served in multiple leadership positions, including Student Government President and still is involved in leadership and community service to this day. It was also during this time that he developed a passion for Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery and completed six externships throughout the country in this field.
After dental school he stayed in Fort Lauderdale and completed his Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery training at Nova Southeastern University and Broward Health Medical Center. During his final year he served as Chief Resident of his surgical service and was also voted “Resident of the Year” by his peers.
Upon graduation Dr. Jakubowski and his lovely wife Kinga, an Optometrist, moved to St. Petersburg and joined Bay Center for Oral & Implant Surgery. This allowed them to settle down closer to her hometown and family in Palm Harbor. Together they enjoy almost any outdoor activity and love to involve their two boys, Carter and Bennett, and their fun loving labrador Chloe. They are avid sports enthusiasts and enjoy cheering on their hometown favorites from both Wisconsin and Tampa Bay.
In addition to his position at Bay Center for Oral & Implant Surgery, Dr. Jakubowski was previously Predoctoral Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery Course Director at LECOM Dental School in Bradenton. He truly enjoys being involved in academics, to both help educate the dentists of the future and also advance his own education. He has published multiple articles in a variety of journals and most recently co-authored a book on lip cancer.
