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.
Working in the medical field was a no-brainer for licensed dentist Dr. Cecilia M. Rey as she comes from a long line of medical professionals. Today, she’s carrying on the tradition at her own practice, where she and her team work tirelessly to safeguard the smiles of kids, teens, adults, and senior citizens using the latest advancements in general and cosmetic dentistry. Regular checkups and cavity fillings keep gums and teeth in tip-top shape, and bridges, bonding, and veneers ensure customers lead with a grin they feel confident enough to show. To keep patients comfortable and at ease during procedures, a pill form of anesthesia is provided, but the team can accommodate nervous cartoon characters who prefer the old-fashioned frying-pan-to-the-head technique.
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.
Surrounded by wicker, Indonesian art, and soft music, Amnesia Therapy Center & Spa's licensed massage therapists unwind painful muscle knots and stressed minds with one of two healing massage modalities. Swedish massages employ several styles of expansive and ebbing strokes to relieve tension, mellow the muscles, and restore free-flowing fluency to the toxin-dispersal chutes of the lymphatic system. During effleurage, the hands smoothly circle the skin like epidermal ice skates. The petrissage and tapotement strokes knead and knock on pressure points in the human hide, and friction strokes untie the knots in the shoelaces of muscle fibers. The vibration stroke goes all "cell-phone setting during a ballet" on the back and the limbs to get blood and muscles moving. Alternatively, therapeutic deep-tissue treatments focus on releasing tension from the innermost layers of tissue as therapists apply firm pressure to mash uncomfortable muscle-potatoes into supple submission.
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.
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.
