Dr. Michael DeLuke was born and raised in Upstate NY and represents the third generation of DeLukes entering the dental profession. His grandfather, the late Dominick DeLuke, was a prominent oral surgeon whose four sons all became dentists. In addition, Dr. Mike’s two cousins are also dentists. That makes 8 dentists spanning three generations in the DeLuke family!

Dr. DeLuke attended Villanova University and graduated cum laude in 1998 with a Bachelor of Science and a Minor in Spanish. He then went on to receive his Doctor of Dental Surgery (DDS) from the SUNY Stony Brook School of Dental Medicine, where he was class Valedictorian and the recipient of fourteen awards, including the award for obtaining the highest score on the National Board Examination. He was also one of only two graduates inducted into Omicron Kappa Upsilon, the prestigious national dental honor society that acknowledges outstanding academic achievement and high moral character.

He went on to obtain his Certificate of Proficiency in Orthodontics and Master of Dental Science (MDS) from the University of Connecticut, where he served as Chief Resident of the Orthodontic Program in his final year. Dr. DeLuke is a Diplomat of the American Board of Orthodontics and served as the orthodontist on the prestigious Cleft Craniofacial Team at Albany Medical Center and as a clinical professor at both Ellis Hospital and the University of Connecticut Health Center.

In 2005, Dr. DeLuke “hung a shingle” and opened DeLuke Orthodontics, and within 10 years he built it into a multi-million dollar single-doctor practice. He has lectured around the country on topics such as efficient and effective interceptive orthodontic treatment, utilizing technology in the dental office, clinical efficiency, cleft/craniofacial orthodontics, finishing and detailing orthodontic cases, and effective practice management techniques.

In 2022, Dr. DeLuke started DeLuke Orthodontic Coaching, or DOC to help colleagues achieve clinical excellence, learn superior practice management skills, and obtain financial success.

Dr. DeLuke resides in Naples, FL with his wife, Renee, and two daughters, Gianna and Kendall. He loves to spend time with his family both at the beach and in the Adirondacks boating, snorkeling, water skiing, and wake surfing.
