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.
For more than two decades, Dr. Lilian Gonzalez and her team of specialists at Dental American Group have cared for teeth using the latest equipment and techniques. The crew—which includes an orthodontist, a periodontist, an endodontist, and oral surgeons—performs services ranging from practical to cosmetic. Doctors may straighten smiles with braces, or replace missing teeth with dental implants. Wrinkle-relaxing Botox injections are also available, leaving faces youthful enough to re-grow their baby teeth.
With more than 30 years of experience, orthodontist Juan de Dios Garcia, D.M.D., P.A. knows that teeth aren't just for eating. They're support structures for the middle and lower part of the face, which influence facial appearance, speech, and self esteem. Specializing in dento-facial orthopedics, Dr. Garcia keeps this fact in mind when guiding patients' teeth toward healthier, more aesthetic and functional positions.
The dentists at Henderson Dental keep every base covered when it comes to caring for teeth. They digitally x-ray teeth for hidden decay, erase stains during teeth-whitening treatments, and straighten smiles with orthodontic services. They are also prepared for emergency situations, such as cracking a tooth or losing a cuspid during a poker game with the tooth fairy.
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.
