Kaya Aygen, DMD
Originally from Essexville, Michigan, Dr. Kaya Aygen received his Bachelor of Science degree in Microbiology with a minor in Health and Humanities from Michigan State University. While Dr. Aygen was in college, his father retired from his medical practice and moved to southwest Florida. Dr. Aygen decided to join his parents and received his DMD from the University of Florida.
When job opportunities opened up in Chicago and Washington DC, Dr. Aygen headed north again to pursue them and build his career. He had a taste of big city practices and life and decided that he preferred Florida. He returned to the Sarasota area and practiced in Venice, Florida, until the opportunity arose to join this practice, which has been caring for patients in Sarasota for twenty years. When the senior dentist retired, Dr. Aygen was chosen to succeed her.
Dr. Aygen strives to be the best dentist in Sarasota FL and has gained many advanced qualifications, including certification in IV sedation, Advanced Cardiac Life Support, Six Month Smiles, and Invisalign. He has also been awarded the title of Top Dentist from Sarasota Magazine.
In order to stay on top of developments in the dental field so that he can bring advanced, modern care to his patients, Dr. Aygen is a member of several professional dental associations:
- American Dental Association
- Florida Dental Association
- West Coast Dental Association
- Sarasota County Dental Association
- International Congress of Oral Implantologists
- American Society of Dental Anesthesiologists
- Seattle Study Club
- Spear Study Club
Dr. Aygen became a dentist because he knew that he could make a difference and help his patients come to see dentistry differently. He believes in quality and durable cosmetic dentistry. His passion for continuing education has given him the necessary skills and experience to earn his patients’ ongoing trust. A caring and compassionate dentist, Dr. Aygen always puts his patients’ comfort and wellbeing first. He believes strongly in educating patients and helping them become empowered advocates for their own care. At our practice, you will always have a say in your treatment.
Dr. Aygen is happily married to his amazing wife, Jamie. They have two beautiful (and far too smart!) little girls, as well as a family cat. When Dr. Aygen is not caring for patients, you can probably find him playing with his kids or cooking, exercising, or reading.
