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.
The softly scented candles and soothing music that permeate Gables Perfect Smile may remind visitors of a spa and not a dental practice, but this calming atmosphere is simply the manifestation of Dr. Victor Gutierrez goal to make patients as comfortable as possible. Since opening a private practice in 1994, the dentist has enrolled in continuing-education courses to master skills in areas ranging from cosmetic and reconstructive dentistry to implant dentistry. Today, the team of dental professionals work with each patient or tooth fairy to craft a custom plan that can include treatments such as Invisalign teeth straightening and full-mouth reconstructions. They can also perform sedation dentistry to keep patients as calm as possible.
In addition to the standard lineup of general and cosmetic dentistry services, Gables Perfect Smile boasts technology-based treatments such as the Waterlase MD dental laser, which removes tooth decay without using excess heat, vibration, or demolition trucks. Their smile makeover calls upon cosmetic imaging to render a preview of patients' potential smile.
Dr. Elias Tobon & Associates oversee a team of smile beautifiers at two technology-stocked dental offices. The specialists craft guise-enhancing grins with a bounty of services, including Invisalign straightening, root canals, implants, porcelain veneers, and teeth-whitening treatments. The dental havens also offer complimentary cosmetic smile assessments in which a dentist scrutinizes mouth fences and proffers recommendations to fix problems such as chipped cuspids, discolored chompers, or molars that moonlight as shark teeth.
Dr. Jose Alberto and his duo of dentists turn downtrodden frowns into scene-stealing smiles with a raft of services. Restorative treatments, such as implants or periodontics, reverse the ravages of various oral indispositions, and orthodontics keep teeth in line and prevent them from sneaking out at night to flirt with local tooth fairies. For cosmetic attention, the dentists apply whitening solutions or porcelain veneers to scrub away the effects of coffee, wine, or smoke.
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.
