Dentists at other clinics boast of having studied implantology under the world-renowned Dr. Arun Garg. Dr. Garg began his practice at Center for Dental Implants of South Florida after two decades of building a sterling reputation in academic dentistry. During those years, he published more than 100 medical articles and wrote several textbooks that have been translated into eight different languages. He also founded the American Dental Implant Association, where he still serves as president.
Dr. Garg and his associates handle services ranging from general checkups to advanced implant procedures. The dental team was among the first to adopt technologies such as surgical lasers and the cone-beam CT scanner for facial imaging.
Dr. Ernest DiGeronimo views himself as an artist, and his cosmetic and reconstructive surgeries as his works of art. He trained under Dr. Ralph Millard?considered by many plastic surgeons to be the father of modern plastic surgery?and has perfected his craft over the course of more than 30 years and thousands of procedures. He and his staff practice their trade in two pristine operating rooms, performing procedures that span the whole body, from face lifts and Botox injections to breast augmentation and liposuction. He also stays abreast of current aesthetic technological advances, as evidenced by his noninvasive laser treatments that include skin resurfacing and radio frequency skin tightening.
Dr. Jean-Jacques Edderai grew up in France, Venezuela, and Israel, before finally settling down to practice dentistry in Miami. That means he's fluent in four languages: French, Spanish, Hebrew, and English. Five languages, actually, if you count the secret language of teeth. He's trained rigorously in a variety of dental fields. He and his team administer routine cleanings and x-rays, but he can also straighten teeth with orthodontic solutions such as Invisalign, and replace teeth with dental implants, rather than just tooth-shaped marshmallows. What's more, he shares his services generously with the community; he has been volunteering monthly at a free dental clinic for the past decade.
When they're examining teeth, the trio of dentists at Premiere Dental Care Center aren't just thinking about the mouth?they're thinking about the rest of the patient, too. That's because they recognize the relationship between oral health and the body. During consultations, they explain how stress can cause cavities, plaque can lead to heart problems, and loose lips can sink ships. Then they meticulously examine teeth in search of decay and other ailments, taking into account activities that can impede oral health, such as smoking.

When your father is a dentist and your uncle is a cofounder of the Board of Endodontics, it’s probably safe to assume dentistry is in your blood. But when you find yourself making orthodontic appliances at your family's kitchen table as a teen—instead of petitioning the government to rename it the Washington Monument: Presented by Mountain Dew like most teenagers—that’s the moment you really know you’re meant to take care of teeth.
Dr. Frederick E. Knoll grew up loving dentistry, and since 1976, he has been able to put this love into practice. Now at his office, he and Dr. Judith L.
