Meet Dr. Alba Suri DDS
Our story begins in Havana, Cuba with a young girl’s interest in medicine. One of seven siblings, Alba Suri, our president and founder, began her dental career in 1955. In 1965 she moved her family to the United States. Being an immigrant and a single mother of three, life was difficult; however, she began working in a factory. Due to her passion and love for dentistry, Dr. Suri would also study long hours for her dental boards well into the night. In 1975 she passed her dental boards and proceeded with her bold aspirations of opening her first dental office where her legacy began. Now, 44 years later, her family- including her daughter, son-in-law, nephew, and two grand-daughters, have followed in her footsteps and are continuing her legacy and passion for dentistry. In 2019 her granddaughter, Dr. Vannette Guerra Orta, and her daughter, Luz Guerra, are continuing to provide quality of care to our patients at West Kendall Dental Associates with the same passion and love that Dr. Suri provided her patients.

Deep Teeth Whitening
This is the term used when combining one or more dental treatments to enhance the appearance of your smile.
- In-chair teeth whitening generally involves the application of a whitening.
- Take-home teeth whitening requires a set of custom made trays to fit your teeth.
- Factors such as smoking, poor oral hygiene and diet can affect the longevity of the results.
Crowns are needed when a tooth has a significant amount of structural damage and a normal filling would not be adequate.
- Heavily filled teeth that have broken or that are likely to break in the near future.
- Teeth with old amalgam fillings often crack around the filling causing pain when chewing.
Our Happy Patients
I had a wonderful experience with my first dental visit. I felt so welcomed. The staff there are very nice and very friendly. The service that I received there excellent. Everything was explained thoroughly. The doctor was very gentle with my mouth. No pain! I will continue to go for regular check ups and cleanings. I will definitely recommend this dental group to all my friends and family.
What a pleasure to find someplace that treats you like a person and not just a number or nameless client. First class treatment and also modern equipment. Personnel are all very efficient and friendly. They go out of their way to explain everything they are doing and what the results are. Both my wife and I will be returning for follow up service.
