MEET VALENTINA BAEZ, DMD
Board Certified in Periodontics and Implant Dentistry
Dr. Valentina Baez grew up in Caracas, Venezuela and moved to the United States in 2000 to finish high school. After completing her Bachelor’s degree at Florida Atlantic University, she attended Nova Southeastern University (NSU) to obtain her DMD degree.
Following graduation, she completed a General Practice Residency at Lutheran Hospital in Brooklyn, New York, to become proficient in all areas of dentistry. She discovered her passion for surgery and decided to specialize in periodontics and implant dentistry at NSU for three additional years.
During her surgical education, Dr. Baez focused on regenerative procedures that help the body create new bone, ligaments, and cementum to maintain healthy teeth and gums. Her training also focused on treating peri-implantitis (bone loss around implants) and bone growth for future implant placement. Additionally, she is trained to treat root recession coverage using donor tissue to avoid a second surgical site, as well as using the patient’s own blood to improve soft tissue healing.
Aside from receiving clinical training in periodontics and implant placement, she focused her research on bone cell growth around different types of implant surfaces. She took special courses, including completion of oral and plastic surgery on soft tissue grafting for teeth and implants. Even with all her training, the most gratifying part of Dr. Baez’s job is when patients tell her that she has improved their quality of life.

When she isn’t working, she enjoys spending quality time with her family, and going to the beach. She’s also an animal lover. One of her long-term dreams is to open a foundation with her husband and provide free dental care to the underserved population around the world.schedule an appointment today at 561.276.6684
