Every day, I have the opportunity to help children on their way to a lifetime of oral health and bright, beautiful smiles. I appreciate having the time to get to know my patients, personally, and take time to build a good doctor-patient relationship.
I like being able to transform a person’s life, by giving them a beautiful smile that boosts their confidence, and I enjoy connecting with the kids and getting them to laugh.
— Dr. Oliver Favalli

Beyond the Office
Dr. Favalli and his family — wife Monica, children Luca and Sofia, and their cat, Gallo — reside in Fort Myers. When he’s not creating smiles for patients, Dr. Favalli can most often be found hanging out at the beach with his family.
He does make time for some of his other passions, though: traveling, skiing, art, red wine, and college football!
