Dr. Lorena Corzo has been helping people to put their best smile forward for the past 10 years. As an active dentist and adjunct faculty at NOVA Southeastern University, she spends time encouraging the importance of periodontal health prevention and treatment to her patients and her students. Her motivation to enter the field started in her Junior year of high school, when she realized that this is a field where she could help and serve back to her community. Dr. Corzo completed her dental degree in Caracas Venezuela at the Universidad Central de Venezuela. After practicing for almost 3 years, she moved to the USA. There she got accepted at the University of Florida Advance Education for the General Dentist program where she obtained her Florida Dental License. For Dr. Corzo, it was a paramount to continue learning and a specialty/master program was her next step to follow. She then completed her residency on Periodontology and a Master of Science degree in Periodontology at Boston University. She was awarded with the Morris P. Ruben Award Scholarship for Academic Excellency and the Richard E. Stallard Award for her research with implants and Piezocision. Her residency gave her the specific skills that she needed to help patients affected by gum and bone disease. Dr. Corzo can develop a comprehensive plan that can help to address patient’s individual situation and unique needs. She uses state of the art techniques and technology to improve her patient’s oral health and restore their smiles. She is part of the Miami Dade Dental Society, Florida Dental Association, American Dental Association and American Academy of Periodontology.
