Dr. Josephine Perez, DMD
Dr. Josephine Perez has been practicing dentistry for over 30 years. A graduate of Tufts University School of Dentistry in Boston, and interned at New Orleans Coast Guard/Navy Base.
Her holistic approach to dentistry encompasses each person’s unique and entire (or whole, therefore holistic) state of physical and emotional well-being. The ability to maintain our health through preventive measures and treatments of oral disease is our priority.
Dr. Perez focuses on the underlying condition, rather than only treating the symptoms. We also test for biocompatibility to find pathways to reduce inflammation and apply biocompatible and biomimetic materials, supplements, essential oils to restore and strengthen the oral cavity and ultimately, the whole body.
After decades of restoring and transforming smiles, Dr. Perez has integrated total wellness into her Oral Health enhancement Practice… A Revolutionary Style of Dentistry!
With over 20 years of experience under her belt, we are lucky to have Amber as our hygienist. Amber and her husband enjoy the Florida lifestyle to the max with both their girls at the beach, fishing or exploring new destinations whenever possible.
Vanessa, our sterilization technician is also our own I.T. go-to person. There is little Vanessa is unable to achieve. Operatories are always ready for our patient’s thanks to Vanessa’s diligent efforts. Vanessa spends her free time learning not only about biological dentistry, nutrition, and sterilization, but also enjoyed dancing and watching movies.
