Sandy Dental is a family-owned dental practice located in the Flagler area of beautiful Miami. Our office opened its doors in 2009, following a move from a previous location. The doctor, Dr. Jorge F. Borges and his wife, Sandra Borges, have owned and managed Sandy Dental since opening day and they have over 20 years of experience owning and operating dental offices. At Sandy Dental you can expect to find quality dental care, with the best in dental implants, orthodontics services, general InvisAlign dentistry, teeth whitening services, veneers, and general and cosmetic dentistry,
At Sandy Dental, we believe that dentistry shouldn't be a production line. Many offices in Miami have created an environment where they churn out treatments and patients. Their waiting rooms are full to the brim and their staff barely have time to drink a sip of water, much less to engage with the patient. This goes against our philosophy. We believe dentistry should be a practice that focuses on providing gentle, compassionate, and quality care to the patient. At our office, our priority is to build a peaceful environment and provide both our staff and our patients with the time they need to thrive in their interactions.
top reasons to choose us
Dr. Jorge F. Borges has been practicing dentistry for over 40 years. His experience, and that of his staff, offer a level of quality dental care you can confidently trust. With years of training and experience, the staff at Sandy Dental have a deep understanding of the intricacies of the mouth, teeth, and gums, as well as the latest techniques and technologies used in dentistry. Our office is well versed in a variety of general, implant, and cosmetic dentistry services, such as dental implants, InvisAlign, porcelain veneers, teeth whitening, deep cleanings, crowns, root canals, bridges, and many more.
Whether we're performing routine cleanings, deep cleanings (SRP) filling cavities with resin composites, restoring damaged teeth through porcelain crowns and veneers, or improving the appearance of your smile, our dental office staff are committed to providing you with the highest level of care and compassion.
Here at Sandy Dental, our staff focuses on providing slow, quality care. Why slow? Because we believe patients and their providers should never be rushed through procedures or conversations. We believe each patient deserves the full attention of our staff, and as such, we have cultivated a work culture built around quality rather than quantity. Our office will never be treated as a factory, packed to the gills with patients who are barely given 2 minutes of the doctor's time. We strive to provide concierge-level service, where each patient is treated with consideration and compassion. As a low-volume practice, we've created a peaceful environment where the patient's comfort and treatment is a priority and where we value each patient as an individual.
Digital imaging and CT-Scans revolutionized the field of dentistry by providing more accurate and detailed information for diagnoses and treatment planning. By providing digital x-rays, panoramic x-rays, and CT-Scans, our office can capture high-resolution images of a patient's teeth and gums in seconds, allowing us to identify potential problems that may not be visible to the naked eye. Additionally, CT-Scans provide 3D images that allow our staff to visualize the entire structure of the teeth, jawbone, and surrounding tissues. This technology enables us to plan and perform procedures, such as root canals and dental implants, with greater precision and accuracy, leading to better outcomes for the patient and a more efficient use of time and resources. Moreover, digital imaging and CT-Scans have reduced patient radiation exposure and eliminated the need for traditional film-based X-rays, making dental procedures safer and more comfortable for our patients.
As a dental office that offers CT-Scans, we can provide many benefits to our patients. Firstly, CT-Scans allow for a more accurate and detailed diagnosis of dental conditions. By using advanced imaging technology, dentists can identify problems that may not be visible through a traditional dental exam or X-ray. This can lead to earlier detection and treatment of issues such as infections, tumors, and impacted teeth. Additionally, CT-Scans can aid in the planning and placement of dental implants, root canals, or other procedures, as they provide a clear picture of the patient's jawbone and surrounding tissues. Overall, having access to CT-Scans in our dental office enhances the quality of care we provide and improves patient outcomes.
As CT-Scans are such a valuable tool for treating patients, we also offer them to non-patients. This means that should you need a CT-Scan, your dentist can refer you to Sandy Dental for the imaging. You and your dentist will be provided with a hard copy of your results.
At our dental office, we pride ourselves on creating a peaceful environment for our patients. From the moment you step into our waiting room, you'll be greeted with a warm and welcoming atmosphere designed to put you at ease. Our team understands that going to the dentist can be a stressful experience for some people, which is why we go out of our way to ensure that you feel calm and relaxed throughout your visit. Soothing music, flowers, gentle aromas, candles, and comfortable seating all contribute to the tranquil ambiance of our practice. We believe that a peaceful environment is essential for providing our patients with the highest quality dental care possible, and we strive to create an atmosphere that promotes both physical and emotional wellbeing.
At Sandy Dental, we understand that the cost of dental treatments can be a burden on our patients. To help make dental care more accessible and affordable, we offer various financing options.
One common option is financing through Care Credit or Lending Club, where the total cost of treatment is divided into monthly payments. These companies can offer various options, such as no-interest financing for a certain period of time.
For our patients who do not wish to finance their treatment, or who may be unable to finance, we can provide some relief through the creation of custom payment plans that can split the cost of treatment over 2 or more visits. This means that instead of paying the full cost of treatment on your first visit, you may choose to spread it out over the course of the length of treatment (usually two visits, but sometimes more). This can help our patients to budget their dental care expenses more effectively.
Overall, by offering multiple financing options, our office can help you receive the dental care you need, while also making it more affordable and accessible.
At Sandy Dental, our team is composed of talented, experienced individuals who value their patients and the quality of care they provide.
