Welcome to Canela Dental! You’ve made the right choice for your smile, and we’ll prove it. We’re proud to offer modern, gentle dentistry to families in the Hollywood, Dania, Ft. Lauderdale, and Aventura communities. From the first time you visit our office, you’ll immediately notice the difference. We value your schedule and make every effort to see you exactly at your specific appointment time.
First Visit Experience
Your first visit is all about making you feel comfortable and getting to know you. First, you’ll meet our hygienist, who will discuss your goals and review your hygiene routines. In most cases, we perform a thorough, deep cleaning on your first visit, but we ensure that Dr. Canela-Pichardo completes an initial examination first. We believe that beautiful smiles are built from positive relationships with our patients, and from your very first visit, you’ll experience exactly how important you are to us. We’ll review your medical and dental history, discuss your goals for your smile, and create the perfect treatment plan for you.
