Dr. Nancy M. Menendez has been attending patients since 1987. She worked in her private practice for many years and provided dental care to individuals in unprivileged populations through volunteer hours in local government dental offices and collaborated in the orthodontic department with dental students and at the Maxillofacial Department with Cleft and Lip Palate patients at the University Central de Venezuela. She earned her Dental Surgery Degree and her Master Degree in Orthodontics from the Universidad Central de Venezuela. After moving to the United States, Dr. Menendez attended the University of Florida School of Dentistry for a two year AEGD Residency Program, graduating in 2014; since then she has been in practice in the Miami Dade and Broward County area; and has taken and completed hundreds of hours in Continuing Education and still travels the country in pursuit of the latest dental techniques to add to her knowledge.
Dr. Menendez’ passion lies in dentistry and the transformation it brings to people’s lives. Her approach is to practice dentistry, fully understanding her patients’ needs, and developing individualized, customized treatment plans. She places great emphasis on preventive care and good oral hygiene habits. She is focused about the concept of facially-generated treatment planning with specialized knowledge to help create smiles that fit harmoniously with individual facial features keeping up with the latest technology and advances in dentistry and has attended a multitude of continuing education seminars.
Additionally, her office is equipped with state-of-the-art software for practice management, cosmetic imaging and digital x-rays while maintaining a relaxed atmosphere. This, combined with her chair side manner, leaves patients feeling completely at ease. Her patients and family fall in love with her sense of humor and empathetic nature, while knowing they are receiving the best dental care.
