Amaya Dental

Come and see why we are different


Welcome to Amaya Dental in Miami! We offer a broad array of services. Our team has the professional experience to realize that there is no such thing as one-size-fits-all treatment, so we never use a one-size-fits-all approach to your dental plan.

You’ll love the results that we can get with our combination of cutting-edge technology and experienced dental professionals. We provide quality and personalized oral health care while keeping your individuality in mind. Our goal is to improve and maintain your oral health so you can smile with confidence.


Our wish for you, your children and family is to achieve the goal of never needing dental work in the future.

Our purpose comes from the derivation of the word “doctor.” It comes from the Latin word “docere,” which means “to show, to teach or to teach to know.”

We help achieve this goal of teaching with hygiene visits twice a year… a goal that can eliminate gum disease and future dental work for a lifetime.

This goal is our sincerest wish for you, your children & family!
