Research has shown that one of the first things people notice when they meet someone new is their smile. If you feel you need help in that department, married dentist duo Dr. Rodlin Jerome and Dr. Belanne Estime-Jerome provide patients with healthy and confident smiles that create positive first impressions!
Both Dr. Jerome and Dr. Estime were born in Saint-Louis-Du-Nord, Haiti. Dr. Jerome moved to the United States at an early age. He began his journey to become a dentist by earning a Bachelor’s degree in Biology at Florida International University. He then completed a Doctor of Dental Surgery degree at Howard University in Washington, D.C. He later moved to New York State and finished an Advanced Education degree in the General Dentistry Postdoctoral Program at Kingsbrook Jewish Medical Center and a fellowship in Geriatric Dentistry at the State University of New York.
Passionate about dental implant surgery, cosmetic and orthodontic dentistry, Dr. Jerome completed his implant training with Implant Educator at the University of Florida.
Dr. Estime was born and raised in Saint-Louis-Du-Nord, Haiti. Her parents were also Haitian-born but met in Miami, Florida, in the mid-1970s. After they married each and had her older sister, they migrated back to Haiti in the mid-’80s.
Since she was young, Dr. Estime has been passionate about being a dentist. To achieve her dreams, she earned her Doctor of Dental Medicine at Pontificia Universidad Catolica Madre y Maestra (PUCMM) in the Dominican Republic. Her intellectual curiosity during her travels and residences abroad made her a polyglot – she’s fluent in six languages. “Working in diverse environments daily makes my brain switch languages like the time clock,” she says.
Having found love in 2013, Dr. Estime decided to move back to the United States, where she married Dr. Jerome. To further her career and education, she revalidated her doctorate in the United States and completed a residency in Advanced Education in General Dentistry to obtain her dental license at the University of Florida. Today she is a double board-certified dentist with advanced training in cosmetic dentistry, implant dentistry, and certifications in Invisalign, Botox, and Dermal Fillers. She also knows the latest digital dentistry technology for planning and finishing cases using digital scanners, CT scans, and Digital Smile.
Both, Dr. Jerome and Dr. Estime are highly trained, experienced, and compassionate dentists who offer comprehensive, high-quality dental care at Smile With Confidence, their state-of-the-art practice in Miami Gardens.
Founded in 2011, Smile With Confidence provides top-quality dental care and upholds the strictest sterilization standards and safety protocols to protect patient’s health. Dr. Jerome and Dr. Estime understand that dental care can, at times, evoke anxiety. They do their best to alleviate these feelings and ensure patient comfort during every visit. As dedicated care providers, they believe patient education is essential for maintaining good oral health. At Smile With Confidence, they take the time to give patients the information and resources they need to keep their smiles in great condition. You can trust their practice to provide the right guidance and the best treatment options for your smile.
At Smile With Confidence, Dr. Jerome, Dr. Estime, and their team of dental professionals are committed to providing advanced and compassionate care. With experienced general dentists and hygienists dedicated to excellence, you can rest assured your smile is in the best hands. What differentiates Smile With Confidence from its competitors is the way both of its lead dentists treat their patients. Their numerous positive online patient testimonials speak for themselves. Many patients have even referred their friends and family members to their practice.
The advice Dr. Jerome would give to a young person who is trying to start their own business is to aim to provide high-quality service to a community. He feels it’s imperative to know how to execute the entrepreneurial process in the right way. Dr. Estime says to make your product or service a must-have. It doesn’t need to be new, but it does need to differ from the competition.
In his spare time, Dr. Jerome is a musician. He enjoys playing the piano. He also likes golfing, traveling with his family, being active, and helping out with community activities. For her part, Dr. Estime is a loving wife, supportive mother, good friend, and a successful entrepreneur. She enjoys socializing, doing yoga with friends, swimming, spending time with her family, traveling to experience diverse environments and people from all walks of life, and participating in missionary work in underserved communities.
