Dr. Pereira has been practicing dentistry for more than 15 years and has a long history of providing healthy and happy smiles for her patients along the way. She is best known for her gentle comprehensive dental care and creating beautiful smiles that last a lifetime.

Dr. Pereira received her D.M.D from the University of Medicine & Dentistry of New Jersey and then attended a year residency in Advanced General Dentistry at Nova Southeastern University. In 2006, she joined a well established group practice in Florida, working side by side with a periodontist. This experience initiated a desire in her for higher level training in surgery to help those with diseased mouths. She took extensive implant training at Rutgers University and received instruction under today’s most experienced and highly regarded implant professionals. She also graduated from the Dawson Academy, a post graduate education and clinical research facility, dedicated to the advancement of dentistry.

Dr. Pereira is an active member of the American Academy of Implant Dentistry, the Academy of General Dentistry and the American Dental Association. Continuing Education is a top priority, so besides continuation of her dental studies, she is an active member of the Sheppard’s Study Club and the Dawson Study Club.
