Doctor Daniela Modesto, DDS
I received my dental degree at the University Of Uberlandia, Minas Gerais, Brazil. Although I was very young, thankfully I was also very mature and carefully guided and mentored by a former professor whom I eventually embarked on a 3 year partnership at his office.
As life would have it, I ultimately decided to travel to the United States of America to expand further on my profession. With a little perseverance and good grades, I secured a slot at the University of Florida Dental School where I completed all the requirements to get my license in the U.S as well as a residency in General Dentistry at Shands Hospital, Gainesville, FL.
Dentistry for me is so much more than simply performing the work. My drive for dentistry is really expressed when I am given the opportunity to sit with a patient and educate them on their oral health. I believe that in educating my patients a partnership is created with a mutual goal of getting healthy. I am continually keeping up to date with the latest technology to be able to offer my patients the best options available.
I have an amazing husband and daughter that support this passion of mine called dentistry. Without them, I would not consider myself to be complete. With a fulfilling career and a loving family I have the privilege to say that I am blessed.
