Dr.Kayla PerezDoctor in Dental Surgery
Dr. Kayla Perez has always been passionate about science and art. While growing up, her dream career was helping others be healthier, but it wasn’t until much later that she discovered her talent and love for dentistry. She was born on the island of Puerto Rico and completed a bachelor’s degree in Biology at the Interamerican University of Puerto Rico. During her undergraduate studies, she did cancer and stem cell research internships in prestigious universities such as Harvard and the National Institute of Health headquarters in Bethesda. It was on a mission trip to Mexico, that she discovered her passion for dentistry. By assisting doctors in renewing the smiles of people who had never had a cleaning before, she realized the impact that oral health has. She decided to go to dental school at Loma Linda University in California and graduated in 2019 with a Doctorate in Dental Surgery. Ever since she is actively pursuing to become the best provider she can be for her patients. She constantly takes courses in varied disciplines that complement her skills and gives back to the community by participating in homeless services. It was her commitment to be close to her family that brought her to Orlando, Florida in 2020, where she has practiced ever since in private practice. In her free time, Dr. Perez enjoys developing new artistic hobbies such as drawing, playing musical instruments, working out, fruit sculpting, and baking.
