Dr. Adriana Da Silveira, DDS, MS, PHD
"I love making people smile!"
I’ve wanted to be a dentist since I was five years old! As an orthodontist, I love helping people achieve their best smile using the latest technology. Building relationships with patients and families are essential to me and make what I do fun! Each child, each person, and each smile is unique, so each treatment is personalized – one size doesn’t fit all for orthodontics and I take each patient’s care very seriously.
A CARING EXPERT
Each day, I am presented with the chance to make lasting, positive changes in my patients’ lives.
For the past 20 years, my expertise has been caring for children born with cleft lip and palate, craniofacial syndromes, cases that require jaw surgery, cases of sleep apnea, and children with special needs. No case is too hard or too easy for me and they all provide with different challenges!
Teaching and research have always been part of my career, and I’ve published many peer-reviewed articles and lectured extensively both nationally and internationally. I’ve been as far as India and Europe to attend and present at international meetings, and I’ve also traveled to El Salvador on mission trips.
