Dr. Robert Grover was born in Jacksonville, Florida, spent his childhood in the Philadelphia area, and returned to Florida with his wife and children in 1995. He received his Doctor of Dental Medicine degree from the University of Florida College of Dentistry in Gainesville, after earning a bachelor's degree from Brigham Young University in Provo, Utah. Dr. Grover holds membership in the American Dental Association, the Florida Dental Association, the Central Florida District Dental Association, and the Brevard County Dental Society.
Prior to dental school, Dr. Grover worked as a broadcast journalist, beginning with an internship at PBS's McNeil/Lehrer Newshour in New York City, followed by associate producer, videographer, reporter and bureau chief assignments at the NBC and CBS affiliates in Salt Lake City, and Orlando.
In the middle of his undergraduate studies, Dr. Grover served a two-year church mission in France and Switzerland. Following missionary service, Dr. Grover met his wife Melissa in the marching band at BYU, where she played clarinet, and he field-directed the band as drum major (while there, BYU's football team won the National Championship!). The Grovers recently celebrated their 30th wedding anniversary. They live down the street from the office in Suntree, and have four children and three grandchildren.
Dr. Grover recently completed a five-year term as Bishop (lay pastor) in one of the Viera congregations of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, and now teaches a Bible study class for Viera High School students every morning before school.
Dr. Grover is thrilled to be a dentist! "I love dentistry, and I love the people my team and I are blessed to serve through dentistry!"
