Since 1976, the Spodak Dental Group has evolved to become South Florida's premier, comprehensive dental facility. Together we comprise a world-class association of dental professionals poised to provide full-service dental care second-to-none in both scope and skill. We are pioneering an unprecedented team approach to dentistry by assembling the finest dental and medical professionals, from all disciplines of the field (including master ceramists in one of the nation's only on-site dental labs), under one roof.
Our eminently qualified team includes general and cosmetic dentists, as well as a team of endodontists, periodonts, and oral & maxillofacial surgeons. Among them, their credentials include board certifications in oral, plastic, and craniofacial surgery. And now, our practice is one of the only in the country to be partnered with a board certified MD anesthesiologist to oversee the medical well-being of each patient undergoing Sleep Dentistry. What this means to our valued patients is that we are uniquely equipped to meet all their dental needs in a singular setting.
