As a child, my mother lacked access to dental care, which later developed into a lot of dental issues. Unlike my siblings who pursued careers in medicine, pharmacy, and law, I always wanted to be a dentist like those who later helped my mom."

About Dr. Vik

Dr. Vik came from a family of two immigrant parents, where education was heavily emphasized. The running joke has always been "doctor or disowned. They didn't care what we did as long as we were happy and got our doctorate degree." 


As a Tampa Bay Area native, he

completed his education at Tampa Prep before enrolling in the B.S./D.M.D program at Nova Southeastern University. Dr. Vik has an unwavering commitment to staying up-to-date with the constantly evolving dental technology enables him to offer the most effective and innovative treatments to his patients.

He prides himself on getting to know his patients on a personal level and providing each patient with the highest quality care. His communication style is easy and open, and he educates his patients while engaging them in conversation. 

Outside of work, Dr Vik likes to exercise, whether it be weightlifting or cycling. On a weekend, you can see me volunteering at church or taking my dogs Pebbles, Loki or Jazzy to the dog park

Gradient Background

Katherine Dove - 18 Extractions

“I came to the dentist needing 18 extractions. I had no confidence in my smile and was terrified. Dr. Thurston and his staff we're very caring people, professional, and compassionate. I now smile all the time, I've had no pain, confidence again, and there is nothing stoping me from life ahead of me"
