Dr. Marisabel Olivera, DMD
Hello! I’m Dr. Marisabel Olivera and I absolutely LOVE making kids smile. I attended Nova Southeastern University in Florida and then completed my two year post-doctorate hospital training in Pediatric Dentistry at Brookdale University Hospital and Medical Center in Brooklyn, NY. I served as chief resident and received rigorous training in behavior management, operating room dentistry, trauma, and emergency treatment during my residency program. I am certified by the American Board of Pediatric Dentistry and I am an active member of the American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry (AAPD), the Florida Dental Association (FDA), the American Dental Association (ADA), and the American Board of Pediatric Dentistry (ABPD).
At Journey Kids Dental, my team and I provide both preventative and therapeutic oral health care for children, starting from infancy through adolescence. I am passionate about caring for those with special needs and I am committed to promoting oral health in a warm and nurturing environment. When I’m not in the office, I love traveling to my native country of Puerto Rico and spending time with my family and loving husband, Adam. I look forward to meeting you soon!
