Our pediatric dentist, Dr. Rene Landa, was born and raised right here in South Florida—the only child to Cuban/Puerto Rican parents.
Dr. Rene was a driven and active child, always participating in numerous sports and excelling in school. He graduated from the University of Florida for dental school, where he organized many mission trips to Ecuador serving underprivileged children of all ages. During these goodwill mission trips, he first realized his love for treating children and was drawn to the pediatric dentistry profession.
Dr. Rene received his specialty training in pediatrics at Boston University. There he completed extensive training in oral and maxillofacial surgery, complex pediatric dental cases, and sedation dentistry. He enjoys interacting with his young patients and believes that a lifetime of great oral health starts with great care from a young age. As a pediatric dentist, he is dedicated to providing exceptional care and service to our young patients. Together with his staff he strives to deliver optimal oral care in a safe and nurturing environment.
Dr. Rene is a HUGE Gator fan and remains involved in many University of Florida clubs. When he’s not making children smile, he loves to challenge himself by competing in triathlons, marathons, and adventure races. He also is an avid crossfitter. Dr. Landa and his wife, Andraisa, have a beautiful baby daughter. Dr. Rene’s parents are both career Police officers. In fact, his father is the present Police Chief in South Miami. As you can imagine, Dr. Rene has community service in his blood. Within his first 6 months with us, he had already started raising funds for a local child with severe medical complexity. We are proud to have Dr. Rene Landa on our team.
Dr. Rene is a member in good standing with the ADA, FDA, Hispanic Dental Association, and American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry.
