Introducing Dr. Maira Estrada
We are excited to announce the newest addition to the Smiles in the Gardens Team, Dr. Maira Estrada. Dr. Estrada is a South Florida native, born and raised in Ft. Lauderdale Fl. She received her Bachelors in Science from Florida State University and her Masters in Biomedical Science from Barry University in Miami Shores, Fl. She received her Doctorate in Dental Medicine from Temple University in Philadelphia, PA where she represented her school as president of the American Student Dental Association.
Dr. Estrada is passionate about volunteering in the community and a recipient of the Capital Medical Society Foundation Board of Governors Award for “Compassion and Dedication to Volunteering” which she received after establishing a free dental clinic for the homeless population of Leon County in 2006. During her time spent in Philadelphia, she also co-founded Temple University’s first ever Peru Mission Trip where her team provided free dental care and oral health education to over 800 infants and children of La Sagrada Familia orphanage. Today you might find her volunteering at Boggy Creek Camp in Eustis, Fl where she works with children diagnosed with craniofacial disorders and other chronic illnesses.
Her mission as a dental care provider is to provide excellent care with a compassionate approach and ensure that every patient has a comfortable and positive experience. Outside of volunteering Dr. Estrada enjoys scuba diving, fitness, and is an avid traveler. She is a member of the American Dental Association, Academy of General Dentistry, Florida Dental Association, and is a fluent Spanish-speaker.
Dr. Estrada will be starting with the practice in July and we can’t wait to welcome her aboard!
