There’s one place in Miami where one does not have to pay skyrocketing prices to be treated like a VIP. Deering Dental offers a one-of-a-kind experience that has patients leaving their practice with a great smile.
Found right in front of the historic Deering Estate, Deering Dental started with a young girl’s dream to become a dentist. Dr. Yenile Y. Pinto DDS is a Miami native who grew up knowing she wanted everyone to enjoy the benefits of a perfect smile. Today, she is pioneering patient-centered services through this practice, a business of putting patients before profits.
At Deering Dental, everything is on time and not done in the typical thirty minutes or more behind schedule that locals affectionately refer to as “Miami Time.” Dr. Pinto feels that being on time is critical to building a mutual respect between patient and doctor. They also make sure that each patient feels special and has a plan that is made just for them. Each dentist even knows their patients’ names, a great foundation for that distinct trust that can hardly be experienced elsewhere. The practice even goes as far as serving their guests with a steamed and scented towel to wash up after their appointment as if they were in a spa.
Deering Dental is able to provide these excellent VIP services because of how Dr. Pinto truly cares for her community. She goes on “reconnaissance missions” and continuously learns new techniques from world-class dental trainers to offer the best for her patients. But that’s not all. She is also involved with Glory House, a local charity that aids rescue victims of the sex trafficking in Miami. She does all this while being a mother and traveler, who is continually being greeted by new challenges in her business.
Dr. Pinto has accumulated a wealth of experience that now benefits clients of Deering Dental. When she began as a dentist, she worked under several other practices wherein she realized how cold and impersonal the medical care industry is in Miami. This made her decide to open her own practice, where patients’ needs are the basis for all decisions, creating an environment and experience unlike any other. As Dr. Pinto often tells her team, “We’re here to treat people, not patients.”
Dr. Pinto, even at a young age, already challenged her limits. She graduated cum laude at the University of Miami under a full scholarship in just three years. If that isn’t impressive enough, she flew all the way to New York to attend the NYU Dental School, also on an academic scholarship and returned to Miami to start her now flourishing career. She hopes that more girls dream big, just like she did, and decide to push their limits and achieve their goals.
All businesses go through a struggle, even for one as successful as Deering Dental. After being struck hard by Hurricane Irma, the whole practice worked hard to get the business back up, and they are currently in the process of opening more branches despite the ongoing pandemic. Even then, they do this very carefully, making sure they can maintain the good customer service their patients have already become a fan of.
