After several years in practice in West Palm Beach and Jupiter, Dr. Abdo recognized the emerging need for comprehensive dental care in the South Florida area. He began to concept DaVinci Dental as a multi-specialty practice committed to providing patients with the highest possible standard of dental care available. He wanted to deliver all facets of dentistry under one roof; General and Family Dentistry, Implant and Cosmetic Dentistry, along with an excellent Hygiene Department, Prosthodontics, Endodontics, Oral Surgery, Periodontics and eventually Orthodontics. His mission became going beyond the preservation and maintenance concepts of general practice. Dr.Abdo’s vision is to have multiple specialists in his practice so that all may consult on each individual treatment plan to provide for an uncompromising, clinically functional and aesthetic dentition.
