Dr. Nury Rodriguez knows that even a quick dentist appointment can turn into a complex affair for patients with kids. That’s why her office houses a video-game nook to keep children occupied while parents have a checkup. Meanwhile in an ocean-themed treatment room, seaweed seems to grow from the floor beneath a floor-to-ceiling mural of underwater life.
Whether she’s serving kids, adults, or adults in Dennis the Menace masks, Dr. Rodriguez relies on her extensive training from a university in Colombia and the University of Florida. She holds memberships to the American Dental Association, Florida Dental Association, South Florida District Dental Association, and the American Orthodontic Society. These credentials hint at her areas of expertise: preventative care, teeth whitening, porcelain veneers, orthodontics, and dental implants.
For more than a decade, Dr. Labrada and her team have addressed tooth troubles for patients of all ages. Their services range from general treatments, such as cleanings and extractions, to cosmetic and orthodontics, including braces and Invisalign. In order to provide that spectrum of services, the team remains up-to-date on the industry's most advanced methods and equips itself with the latest technologies and instruments available.
Inside Westward Dental Centre, colorful wall-size photographs of wooded areas and streams reflect the team’s appreciation for natural beauty. This appreciation motivates their philosophy of prevention, which maintains the function and health of natural teeth. Should dental unpleasantries arise, the team equips itself with advanced technology such as diode lasers and rotary endodontics, which allow for the repair of teeth and soft tissue with as little invasiveness as possible.
As passionate as they are about dentistry, the doctors at Concierge Dentistry of Florida like to keep their handiwork a secret between you and them. They do this by using tooth-colored fillings for cavities, which blend in with natural teeth better than the metal amalgams they replace. Porcelain veneers and dental implants resemble natural teeth in both look and function, and Invisalign braces straighten smiles while remaining nearly impossible to see, like a contact lens's ghost.
The dentists and doctors at Dental Specialists of Doral want to make sure their clients have the healthiest—and healthiest-looking—teeth possible. New patients can come in for their first exam, where a dentist will take patient history, exam teeth, take x-rays, and perform a thorough cleaning, or clients can choose to have their teeth whitened in the office. Using either the popular Zoom! or BriteSmile whitening technique, a thin layer of whitening gel is spread on each client’s teeth, and a low-intensity light activates the gel, resulting in teeth 6–10 shades whiter after the procedure.

At Gemini Dental, oral care is a family affair: the sons of a prominent Peruvian dentist in Lima, brothers Luis and Jorge Velis opened their own clinic after graduating together from the University of Florida in 1998, helping them stay as close to each other as two front teeth. Dedicated to keeping their skills sharp, the brothers and their staff undergo continuing education. It allows them hone their skills with such smile-improving procedures as affixing Invisalign braces, performing virtual imaging, and teaching the hygienically correct way to pull back lips and pretend to be in a wind tunnel. Besides regular dental care, the six staff doctors render such advanced services as low-radiation digital X-rays and single-visit, ceramic crowns.
