So I’ve been needing my wisdom teeth out for awhile and kept pushing it back. Just like anyone… no one likes the dentist but i needed to get the this one out ASAP. I made an appointment online and the same day 15 minutes later, i received a call from the doctors office saying they had an opening & i could come in an hour!!! I was so pleased as i got greeted with a very nice lady who said good morning and took my temperature right away! I was then walked to my room where the dental assistant could check me in before the doctor saw me. We did one x-ray of my entire mouth and then the doctor came in and explained that the wisdom tooth needed to be pulled. We went over the entire procedure and how he was going to work, he told me everything that was happening and made sure that I felt comfortable. He then went over every prescription he was giving me at the end to make sure i was in no pain! Thank you again Florida Dental Smiles, the entire staff was amazing. Thanks again Doctor Scerbo!

I’ve been going to Dr Scerbo for at least 6 years! He’s a great dentist and super nice guy (met him in the check-out line at Publix!!) I had been looking for a dentist and didn’t like the other ones I had visited since I moved to Florida. The front of the house staff is excellent- they have great systems and state of the art technology. The office is clean, comfortable and in a great location. I’ve referred a few friends who have also had great experience! Highly recommended.

They do all they can to make sure you are you are comfortable and informed. The dentists are kind and caring about your dental health. It’s not about money. I’m grateful I chose them journey to better oral health.

Best dentist in Fort Lauderdale!! Had a horrible experience with another dentist and was very afraid of getting my tooth removed! Terrified!! But thanks to these awesome guys and there professionalism, They’ve now restored my confidence again. I had a tooth extraction and I can honestly say I didn’t feel a thing!! Thanks guys and I will definitely be going here from now on! Oh and also they’re prices for someone with no insurance is very reasonable!!

I work with a traveling specialist in over 25 offices spanning palm beach, broward and miami dade county with Florida Smiles Dental being one of the offices we work at. I recently decided to go as a patient for a routine cleaning. I see them on a weekly basis from a professional standpoint working with them as colleagues and now have had the opportunity to be the person in the chair as well. I can’t say enough great things – It is a beautiful office in an awesome location… kind, friendly and very knowledgable staff… Ultimately, Dr. Scerbo and his staff provide consistent high quality dental care in a comfortable stress free environment and that is something that is rare and hard to find these days. I would definitely recommend Florida Smiles Dental to anyone looking for a top notch dentist providing superior care.

I had my teeth whitened with the Zoom Whitening light and I was super happy with the results! They gave me a post-care & maintenance kit that included custom-made trays with a gel for sensitivity and maintenance whitening! I referred my cousin to this practice and she had an amazing experience! She had a root canal and a crown and everything was done at the office. Doctors and staff are very professional!

A S. from Florham Park, NJ (Source: Yelp)


I have been coming to Florida Smiles Dental for about a year now and have had nothing but great experiences with Dr. Scerbo and his office. After moving to Fort Lauderdale, I struggled with finding a dentist that I felt comfortable going to until I came here. They do a great job making sure you fully understand everything that is going on and are always using top of the line equipment to make sure that your teeth are as healthy as possible. I would recommend this office in a second. Thank you Florida Smiles Dental!

I have been coming to this dental office since 2013, if my memory serves me right. These guys are very well trained from the front to the back. I have been treated here like a VIP from beginning to end. Everyone is courteous and kind. They walk another mile for you and they make sure you’re comfortable every step of the way. Every time I leave this place, I’m smiling. That’s the effect that this office has on me. I have been recommending this office to my family and friends. Florida Smiles Dental! I’m glad I found you!

I have been coming to dr Scerbo office for months now working on my new teeth and implants. He is doing s wonderful job with me he is making use all is prefect with my new teeth I have a difficult month. Nova school turned my away telling me my bit was to difficult for students. So I found dr Scerbo and he is working with me to make my bit just right. He has patients. And if I have a question. He calls me right back. You will be in great hands and the staff is awesome. You won’t be scared of being here at all

Teri D. from Fort Lauderdale, FL (Source: Yelp)


GThe dentist has always been a phobia for me.  From the first call, they made me comfortable.  I wouldn’t go anywhere else.   I chose Dr. Scerbo based on previous reviews.  My anxiety is well above average and previous poor dental work only fed into that fear.  The entire staff has helped me work through it.  I’ve never been pressured to do something.  They work within my comfort levels and with extreme patience.  The most touching is when Dr. Scerbo personally texted me to check on me after I developed a bad infection to see how I was doing.  That compassion shows he truly cares about his patients.

Hannah H. from Fort Lauderdale, FL (Source: Yelp)


I am new to the Fort Lauderdale area and this office is so awesome! They  are so friendly and make sure that you get the best treatment. Being fresh out of college, even thinking about paying for a dentist appointment can be stressful, but this group is so great about dealing with these financial needs! The staff truly cares about what you want and are able to accommodate pretty much anything. I would definitely recommend this group for anyone who wants the best of the best in dental and orthodontics!

Thank you FSD, you guys rock! I came in to the office a few months ago with two missing teeth, and after Dr. Scerbo gave me a list of my options, I decided to get dental implants. The process took a while, but the wait paid off because for the first time in my life, I have perfect teeth!! Dr. Scerbo and Dr. Drennen were fantastic, taking the time to walk me through each step of the process, and paired with a whitening session and cleanings, my teeth have never looked better. The staff was always friendly, and I love that the services were done in the same office. It made everything really easy for me. Highly recommend!

Ryan F. from Opa-locka, FL (Source: Yelp)


This office is truly amazing. I don’t enjoy going  to the dentist as much the next person, but I really enjoy going there. The staff members are and SUPER NICE and RESPECTFUL and litterly treat you like FAMILY. From the moment you walk in there until you leave the service is awesome. They’ll do anything to make you feel as comfortable as possible without batting an eye. Dr. Scerbo explains everything he does and did everything with ease. They also have a root canal specialist who does wonders and makes 100% sure his work is top notch. I HIGHLY recommend this office to anyone who is need of any type of work done.

Josh C. from Fort Lauderdale, FL (Source: Yelp)


I have been coming here since 2007. I always recommend Florida Smiles to any of my family or friends looking for a reliable team of professionals. Dr. Scerbo is a great dentist! He has always been there for me and my teeth! He definitely knows his stuff, as my mouth has surely tested him. Nobody loves going to the dentist for the obvious reasons, but I can say I do like coming here. Josh Clyde

R C. from Fort Lauderdale, FL (Source: Yelp)


Wonderful experience , visiting Dr. Scerbo’s office. The team took the time to asses my concerns and solve all the problems that I addressed. The doctor is very patient and treats every single patient as family member. I recommend his practice to anyone that needs high standard dental work . This exceptional doctor and his  wonderful team are doing a great job for all their patients.

I had an amazing experience while visiting Flordia smiles dental I called to make an appointment, got in the same day, the technician was great very friendly, everyone was nice the doctor was very informative about everything. And the most important I was able to trust the staff and doctors with my teeth. Definitely making Flordia smiles dental regular care.

Joe T. from Miami, FL (Source: Yelp)


I just want to thank dr.scerbo and his amazing staff for  the way they treated me . Not only was the dr and his staff beyond friendly they went above and beyond to make sure I was comfortable . I was very impressed on how modern his office was and how painless the procedure was . I would have never imagined a good trip to the dentist but dr.scerbo gave me a new outlook on trips to the dentist . I finally found a great dentist!

Terry A. from North Vancouver, Canada (Source: Yelp)


The day before leaving on our Panama cruise, I damaged my partial plate and was faced with two weeks of being embarrassed when eating or talking with people. The people at the Hilton Hotel arranged a same day appointment with Dr. Scerbo who saw me right at the appointed time. Dr. Scerbo fixed and adjusted the partial right on the spot and then refused to charge me and wouldn’t accept any payment when I tried to insist. Unbelievable ! The staff at the Hilton and Dr. Scerbo at Florida Smiles saved my vacation

Kathleen Hodges (Source: Google)


Florida Smiles Dental is a great dentist office to go to! The staff are super kind and helpful. Dr. Scerbo is the best dentist by far. Kind, understanding, gentle, and trustworthy. I had a x-rays done, a cleaning and 5 fillings done. I didn’t feel any pain the entire time! I absolutely recommend this dentist!

Charlene S. from San Francisco, CA (Source: Yelp)


The absolute best dentistry experience my family and I have ever had. Everyone from the receptionist to the hygienists to the dentist are incredibly friendly and always top notch professionals.   I am a very sensitive person when it comes to dental work of any kind, as my childhood fears have found their way to my adulthood journey, but whether a simple cleaning to a root canal, they take special care to make sure I am comfortable in all procedures. I can’t speak highly enough about Florida Smiles Dental!

Morgan A. from Fort Lauderdale, FL (Source: Yelp)


Best dentist ever! First I’ll start with the beautiful office everyone is so welcoming and you just feel good ! I called dr Scablo very worried and he helped me right away, took care of the problem and made me super happy, ! Thank you Dr Scerbo you are the best !! I would recommend this dentist and this office to anyone that is looking for great professional service !

Diana Monsalve (Source: Google)


I’m very happy with the service that Dr. Scerbo and his team provided me with. They took really good care of me when I had a dental emergency this past week. I had doubts that they would be open during this time but they assured me that they were and that their facilities were up to the standards the CDC had placed. If you have any dental problem don’t hesitate to go to them!

I don’t know where to begin. I fell and chipped my front tooth and I am not from Fort Lauderdale FL. I drove down from Jacksonville FL, for working purposes. Not having anyone refer me to Dr. Scerbo, I took the chance and entrusted him and his team with the repair of my tooth. Dr. Scerbo is beyond professional, his bedside manners are phenomenal and he matched my crown successfully. He is a perfectionist, which is much appreciated because my teeth are very white and it was difficult to match, but he was able to do so with no problem. I have referred others to his practice! For the best dental care please see Dr. Peter Scerbo! Thank you for giving me back my smile!

Dr. Scerbo and staff deliver 5 star service. What I like most about Dr. Scerbo is that he listened to my input and suggestions; and included me in on my treatment planning. I am very happy with my results. The office is clean and attractive; and the staff will go out of their way to accommodate. Pricing for services was VERY reasonable, and Dr. Scerbo accepts most dental plans.

William L. from Victoria Park, Fort Lauderdale, FL (Source: Yelp)


All I can say is what a fantastic dental office. My wife and myself look for the best in our local area and found Florida smiles, Doctor Peter, is a fantastic dentist,, caring professional and has a good disposition for his patience. All the staff are very polite and take time to listen to you. Take care of all your needs. And handle your insurance for you. And also they have fantastic cash prices for anyone to come in with any problems. It’s a fantastic dental office believe me I’m a very critical person. Very clean very professional during this pandemic they have air cleaners and all protective equipment on to protect you while in their office. Excellent. If you’re looking for a new dental office or not satisfied with your own this is the place to go. Guaranteed a five star. We visited the office before the pandemic and have been to their office just recently. I’ve added some photographs from February 2020.

I couldn’t be more pleased with my experience with Dr Scerbo and the rest of the team at Florida Smiles. Their work is always efficient and skillful, and they always go above and beyond to make me feel as relaxed as possible. I’ve had a range of work done so far – cleanings, whitening, implants and crowns, all with excellent results. The office itself is clean and comfortable, the receptionist staff always remember your name, and I’ve never stayed in the waiting room more than few minutes before being led back to start the work. Scheduling hasn’t been an issue, but I have a fairly flexible one myself. Dental work is always pricey, so I appreciate the 5% discount when you pay in full. The cosmetic crowns on my front four teeth have me smiling more in the past few weeks than in my whole life living with a large space that I hated. Dr. Scerbo is very skilled at improving the aesthetics without the work looking fake/plastic. The only slight drawback is the parking situation. The lot is always quite packed and, while I’ve never not been able to find a space, it’s a VERY tight fit sometimes.

I am so, so happy to have found this dentist office! I was having so much anxiety getting a deep cleaning, and the dental hygienist who was taking care of me was so kind and understanding, and worked with me to get through it! By the end, I was very relaxed and comfortable. The entire staff, from the front desk to the doctors are so friendly. They’re also very quick to get you in to get started. I have found my forever dentist office! 🙂

Best experience hands down of having a same day emergency tooth extraction. The staff and doctor was awesome! I was extremely nervous due to previous bad experience at another dentist office in the past where I’d leave the office with so much throbbing pain I can feel each cell in my body. Florida Smiles Dental was the exact opposite of my prior past experience. They went above and beyond to calm me down. I was provided with headphones to listen to music on my phone and a weighted blanket. They went over the process, took their time to make sure I was comfortable and relaxed. They ensured the numbing med took in effect and waited a while before performing the procedure. It took about an hour or so to complete. I went home and it has been hours later, followed their directions provided and I feel so much better. I have never, EVER in all my life experienced such a pleasant tooth extraction with minimal pain and this is after the numbing med wore off. Did I mention I was awake for all of this? I normally don’t write reviews but felt compelled to let everyone know what an awesome place this is. Thank you so much for everything! Much thanks and gratitude!

I Highly recommend this office And the team there. The staff is great all around! Both dentists that have taken care of me were very mindful and extremely thorough during my visits. I’ve had to go in same day and they’ve had zero issues making sure this happens. Good Dentists are tough to come across, and tougher to trust and stick with. These folks are in the great group above the good. Doctor Scerbo will make sure you’re in good hands when you visit his office!

Rosario D. from Fort Lauderdale, FL (Source: Yelp)


Last night I stayed awake till almost 4AM worried about my hubby & the terrible pain he was in. The toothaches were not going away even with all the home remedies we tried. Not only was I worried about the pain he was in but also wondering who would see him on such short notice, if my husband was going to feel comfortable with them, and once I did find a Dr. the fear of having to be turned away and referred to a specialist and not getting anything accomplished. I posted a request for recommendations on Facebook to see if I get lucky and I did! Friends referred me to some GREAT Dr’s but they weren’t in today . Thank goodness Dailyn (a coworker )referred me to Dr. Scerbo and Dr. Gavila! I’m not one to write a review but the level of care and service we received from Florida Smiles Dental, I had to take a few minutes to share. They were A-MAZING, super down to earth, answered all our questions, kind, genuine, and everyone made my husband feel at ease which in my book is priceless. Having 2 teeth extracted can be so painful but my husband did’t feel a thing!! Before you knew it, the Dr was done!  It was an overall great experience. The moment we left my husband told me this is his dentist going forward! If you are looking for a great dentist, this is the place to go to! I’m just so happy. Thank you so very much!

Paolo D. from North Miami Beach, FL (Source: Yelp)


So I’m that guy that avoids going to the dentist as much as I can.  I gave this place a try and from the get go I felt super comfortable.  The office was very nice and everyone seemed happy to work there.  The equipment looked really high-tech and everything was extremely clean.  Everyone there made me feel at ease as they realized I wasn’t crazy about being at the dentist.  Dr. Scerbo explained everything to me and took the time to listen.  Everything went smooth and I left there pretty impressed.  I already set up a second appointment and will be using them on a regular basis.  Definitely recommend this place!!!!

The dentists at Florida Smiles take personalized care to another level. I went in needing an extraction and I’m dreadfully afraid of needles, to the point where I was literally in tears and Dr. Gavilla made me calm and comfortable almost in the same way a mother would comfort her child in distress. He was reassuring throughout the entire process and took time out to answer all my concerns and questions and stopped whenever I was overwhelmed. The overall staff was very friendly and follow up was great. I recommend Florida Smiles Dental to ANYONE.

I have been a patient at Florida Smiles for a couple of years now. I had been experiencing a toothache for a couple of days and was weary of going to my dentist office in the middle of a pandemic. The pain became unbearable so I decided to call and make an appointment. Not only did they get me in right away, but their protocol to ensure patient safety and office disinfecting was on point. I had to have a root canal, to which honestly I can say, I did not feel a thing. Thank you to the dentists and wonderful staff of Florida Smiles. Wonderful patient satisfaction!

Douglas H. from Fort Lauderdale, FL (Source: Yelp)


I am very nervous about going to the dentists and despite having excellent dental insurance and with major work that had to be treated five years ago I kept on putting it off for another year. I bit the bullet yesterday and went to Florida Smile Dental. I met with Dr. Gaertner yesterday (my wife has being seeing Dr. Scerbo, the owner of Florida Smiles for a years and she always praised him) and I can only say that all the staff were really patient and friendly and Dr. Gaertner was amazing talking through all the work I would have. He operated on me today and I can only say I would give his manner and work six stars if I could and I have even booked for the following week. My wife is really happy with the way my teeth are now looking and in time for Christmas!!! I can safely tell any nervous people to see these dentists. They have an amazing way of looking after people like me.
