Dr. John Mikotowicz

Dr. John Mikotowicz

Dr. John Mikotowicz was born and raised in Erie, Pennsylvania.  From a young child on, Dr. Mikotowicz had a lifelong goal, he always wanted to be a dentist.  He knew that this would be no easy task as his family was not wealthy, however, what they lacked in wealth they made up for in love and support.  It is with his family’s love and support, that Dr. Mikotowicz was able to excel in school. From St. Hedwig’s Elementary School, to Cathedral Preparatory School and finally, to Gannon University, where he graduated Magna cum laude with a Bachelor of Science degree in Biology/Pre-dentistry in 1980. From there, he moved on to dental school.  He achieved his lifelong dream upon graduation from Case Western Reserve University’s School of Dental Medicine in 1984, graduating third in his class and being awarded the Academy of General Dentistry Award at graduation.  Dr. Mikotowicz felt an additional calling in his life, and upon graduation from dental school, he married his wife of 35 years, Karrie, and joined the United States Air Force the very next day.  He currently has two children, Patrick and Elizabeth.   He completed a one-year General Practice Residency program at Chanute Air Force Base (AFB), IL in 1985 and was then assigned to Grissom AFB, IN. 

While at Grissom AFB dental clinic, Dr. Mikotowicz realized his true passion in dentistry, namely, periodontics.  As the top resident in his class, Dr. Mikotowicz then graduated from a three-year periodontics specialty program at Wilford Hall USAF Medical Center and with a Master of Science degree in Periodontics from the University of Texas Health Science Center in San Antonio, TX in 1992.  He was then assigned to McGuire AFB, NJ, where he spent the final 12 years of his military career.  While stationed at McGuire, he served as the Chief, Department of Periodontics, achieved his Diplomate status with the American Board of Periodontology (1996), was a volunteer assistant clinical professor at Temple Dental School in the post-graduate periodontics program (2000-2001), and received numerous military awards and decorations.  He retired his Regular Air Force Commission in 2004, after giving 20 years of dedicated and loyal military service to his country.  He then entered private practice as an associate of Dr. John Kukucka in 2005, but was called back to McGuire Dix Lakehurst (JB-MDL) in 2008, due to an ongoing urgent need by the USAF for an on-base periodontist.  Despite the financial hardship involved, Dr. Mikotowicz once again answered the call of his country and returned to JB-MDL dental clinic as a Veterans Administration civilian employee where he remained until 2013.  Funding for his position at JB-MDL was eliminated in October 2013 with President Obama’s sequestration of the military. It was at this point that Dr. Mikotowicz joined The Dental Specialty Center in 2015 (formerly known as Precision Periodontics).  During his 35 year career, he has provided treatment to thousands of his patients under IV conscious sedation and is highly experienced in periodontal regenerative and implant surgeries.  His approach to periodontics is a traditional one which involves initial therapy with emphasis on patient’s health history and oral hygiene, followed by re-evaluation, and then surgical therapy with an emphasis on regeneration, followed by maintenance therapy.  Dr. Mikotowicz loves his chosen profession of periodontics and truly cares about the health and welfare of his patients.
