This content was provided by Dr. Rodriguez "Dr. Katherine Rodriguez is a Board Certified Periodontist, who followed in the footsteps of her mother. Spending summer vacations and days off in her mother's dental office ignited her chosen career path. A self-described perfectionist, Dr. Rodriguez is precise and fastidious saying, "a millimeter although a small measurement, makes a big difference." Her attention to the smallest details in both the art and humanity of dentistry has earned the trust and respect of patients and colleagues. "Doing treatment is my favorite part of the job. Nothing compares to being able to change a person's life by fixing the problems with their smile." Driven and ambitious, Dr. Rodriguez graduated Magna Cum Laude from the University Of Puerto Rico School Of Dentistry, and has continued to build an impressive portfolio of educational and professional accomplishments. She holds a certificate for General Practice Residency from Miami Veteran's Affairs Medical Center, and Jackson Memorial Hospital. She graduated from the Periodontology Program at Nova Southeastern University College of Dental Medicine. Her extensive training in the diagnosis and treatment of periodontal disease, as well as Implant Dentistry are integral to her success. With a focus on prevention, each patient receives a comprehensive diagnostic assessment. There are no generic protocols, each treatment plan is customized to fit the patient's personalized needs and health goals. "Our entire practice is patient focused. We share a belief that all patients should be treated the way we would like to be treated." Married to an architect, Dr. Rodriguez has a 5 year old daughter and 3 year old son. With a zest for life, she begins every day by saying "Today, is going to be a great day!" Away from the dental chair, she enjoys entertaining friends at home, wining and dining, and traveling.
