About Next Dental:

Next Dental is a fast growing practice in the North Miami area whose main focus is to enhance the oral health of the community.  We provide every patient with excellent dental care that will result in a lifetime of optimal dental health. We offer a tradition of professional integrity, and pride ourselves on providing the highest quality dentistry in a family environment.

Our mission is to enhance access to care in our community. We do this by accepting most insurance, and offering an in-house Wellness Plan for our uninsured community. With our in-house plan, we offer affordable fees and reasonable payment plans. In addition, we offer transportation services for locals upon availability. Many members of our community don’t have reliable transportation so they frequently miss their appointments. This allows oral diseases to worsen and spread because the treatment that is required is not being received.

Your mouth is the gateway to your body. Oral disease does not exist in isolation. Gum Disease negatively affects Diabetes, Blood Pressure, and your overall health. Studies show that most adults have gum disease and don’t know it. Common signs include bad breath, loose teeth, calculus buildup, and bleeding on brushing/flossing, and swollen gums. Treatment of gum disease can help with the management of many diseases, so we are regularly promoting continuity of care with local physicians. It is important that our community is regularly evaluated and treated.

We are a family-oriented dental practice, treating patients of all ages. We accept walk-ins, but always recommend scheduling an appointment to avoid a long wait time.

Come in to get evaluated and treated by one of our friendly dentist.
