Yimar Angell, DMD

"Dr.Yimar Angell graduated as a dentist overseas. After years of practicing dentistry and having her own dental office, she decided to come to this wonderful country. Because of her passion for dentistry, she returned to school and attended the Boston University School of Dental Medicine so that she could practice in the U.S.

While in Boston, Dr.Angell worked in community health centers as a clinical instructor for dental students attending Harvard, Tufts, and Boston University, guiding them to become new dentists. She also worked in private dental practices while in Massachusetts. Although Massachusetts will be forever in her heart, she recently left the frigid northeast and relocated to the sunny state of Florida.

Dr.Angell has attended numerous postdoctoral and continuing education courses in Endodontics, Periodontics, Oral Implantology, Prosthodontics, Sedation, and Cosmetic Dentistry. She is a member of the American Dental Association, Massachusetts Dental Society, American Academy of Implantology, and soon the Florida Dental Society.

Dr.Angell loves dentistry and likes to help her patients overcome their fears and any negative experiences they may have had in the past. She provides honest, non-judgmental, empathetic, gentle care to her patients and the high-quality, painless dentistry you and your family deserve.

Regardless of what stage you are at in your life, Dr.Angell encourages you to book an appointment today to either establish dental care, look for a second opinion, or alleviate any dental emergency you may be experiencing. She looks forward to meeting you and being part of your dental journey."
