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.
Armed with a degree in microbiology from the University of Florida, Dr. Pablo J Fonseca combines his fascination with small worlds with a passion for big smiles. The 25-year veteran works closely with his team members, many of whom dedicate thousands of hours to continuing education classes. Together, the group performs both general and cosmetic services as well as emergency dentistry for those with chipped teeth or a feeling that the tooth fairy is overstaying her welcome.
From its palm-tree-lined entryways to its warm, tangerine-colored walls, Elite Dent showcases the vision of dentist Jacqueline Correa, who designed her offices to put patients at ease. In this tranquil, inviting setting, Dr. Correa and her team perform services ranging from dental implants to smile-straightening Invisalign treatments. At some locations, wooden cabinets with marble counter tops separate the dental chairs and provide privacy, and personal televisions sit in front of each chair to deliver entertainment.
Dr. Rita M. Claro, the lead dentist at Kendall Dental Care and Miami Dental Care, brings more than 20 years of clinical experience to the two practices. Under Dr. Claro's guidance, dentists and dental hygienists ensure strong and healthy teeth with preventive exams and cleanings as well as whitening treatments. Of course, cavities, chipped teeth, and microscopic ivory poachers still show up every now and then. The dental professionals treat these sorts of issues with restorative procedures such as fillings, porcelain veneers, and implants.
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.
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.
