Dr. Louis DeLuke, DMD

Dr. DeLuke

I grew up in upstate New York in the Albany area. As a third-generation dentist, I vividly remember running around my Grandfather’s (and now father’s) dental practice at a very young age, always interested in what he was doing. It was during this time that I found my passion for dentistry and decided to follow in my family’s footsteps.

I graduated from Tufts University School of Dental Medicine in 2015. I was an active member of the Tufts community, volunteering in a number of community outreach programs. In my fourth year, I participated in a two-week mission trip to the Dominican Republic, where my team and I provided comprehensive oral health care to hundreds of patients. After graduating from Tufts, I was accepted into the Advanced Education in General Dentistry program at Boston University School of Dental Medicine, where I greatly expanded my knowledge and enhanced my clinical skills in all aspects of General Dentistry.

For the next three years, I practiced as a General Dentist in the Boston area. Although I loved providing comprehensive care to my patients, I made the decision to focus on my true passion, which is Endodontics. I returned to Boston University, where I completed my specialty training and received my certificate in Endodontics. I currently serve on two AAE committees, the Resident and New Practitioner Committee (RNPC) and the Resident Expert Advisory Council (REACH), where I enjoy advocating for the specialty and networking with dentists from around the country.

In my free time, I enjoy running, snowboarding, and spending time with my wife, Camila. We are expecting our first child, a baby girl, in December and are very excited to grow our family!

I consider myself a very caring individual who goes above and beyond to ensure my patients have a comfortable experience. At the same time, I pride myself on practicing with the highest ethical standards and providing excellent quality of care. I look forward to working with your office and the Seacoast community.
