Dr. Ruiz, graduated with honors from the School of Dental Medicine of the University of Puerto Rico an approved by the American Dental Association (ADA) institution, with extensive experience as a general dentist for the whole family, mentions:
“We are all very grateful with God, for everything He has done. We have felt the need of the community to know our equipment and procedures, which are of great benefit to them since all our doctors diagnose accurately, patient appointments are faster since we offer crowns and dental veneers the same day, and we can grant excellent clinical and financial benefits for all our patients ”- Dr. Ruiz.
She was always obsessed with her bedroom being super organized when she was a kid. Her mother was puzzled. Little did she know, she had a “serial straightener” on her hands! Lo and behold nothing would appease this little girl’s pet peeve as she grew older but to figure out what part of the body she could set straight. You figure out the rest!
She’s the mother of two little kids so excuse her frazzled look at times. She hasn’t slept since 2010. If you make her laugh she’ll get back to her normal smart self. Or you can surprise her with her most favorite thing in the world. Not chocolate! She’s a dentist from University of Toronto you know. A book! Lame yes but totally worth the smile on her face.
She constantly had icicles in her hair while in Toronto until a super wise guy convinced her he could melt her icicles (and her heart) if she agreed to move to Florida. Her husband whisked her down south and showed her the doors of Jacksonville University where all sorts of teeth were being straightened. Dr. Naghavi has been in love ever since (with him and teeth) and she can’t wait to check out yours.
Although he is presently engaged in full-time private practice, he has collaborated with dental implant companies and has created continuing education courses for dentists in the community.
A Florida native, Dr. Merino enjoys fishing, boating, water sports, model and full-scale aviation and traveling. He is also enjoys being the father to his wonderful son. He is fluent in English and Spanish.
