New Patients

The cost of your orthodontic treatment may vary depending on your individual needs and treatment plan. Dr. Salmon and his staff will discuss with you the cost of your treatment, and each of your available payment plan options, so that you are able to make the best choice for you and your smile. We will work with you to create a payment plan that fits your budget, and you will know what to expect before beginning treatment

We accept most major credit cards and insurance plans.
Our office staff is always available to help you with insurance claims and paperwork, if you have insurance that will be covering any portion of your orthodontic treatment.

Our Services

Preventive services – cleanings, x-rays, check-ups

The bulk of the practice is basically prevention which is more geared to keeping things as close to what you should have such as; small amount of fillings, no missing teeth, no root canals, healthy gums, healthy teeth or no cavities.

Restorative services – fillings, extractions, root canals.

Whatever we fix can break, whatever we put in can fall out, whatever God put in can get decayed, so you are never finished with a patient. Patients always need to have checkups. Like a car, you don’t wait until you run out of oil; with regular checkups you spend less money on dental care, just as if you go for scheduled maintenance and service, your car is less apt to break down or run out of oil.  If you go the dentist on a regular basis around every 6 months, your dentist can check to see if things are running smoothly and avert a “breakdown”.

Rehabilitative services – crowns, bridges, dentures, orthodontics

Rehabilitate means to put things back as they were meant to be and to prevent shifting of teeth or damage to the bite. There is also a cosmetic side of the practice that involves orthodontics and veneers which are a thin covering over the teeth to change the color of the teeth, lighten the teeth, or fill in gaps.

These fixtures are intended to last for a long time but sometimes things can break – you eat the wrong thing, like some bone or you try to open a bottle with your teeth. That can break anything, either your natural teeth or replacements. So, although, it is considered permanent and intended to last a long time, no one can tell you how long it will last. That depends on function and habits. Someone who clenches or grinds their teeth destroys their teeth faster than someone who does not.

About Us

Doctor Dwight Salmon attended high school in Jamaica, followed by West Indies College, (Northern Caribbean University). He migrated to Maryland and finished college where he majored in Medical Technology and then went on to Dental School at Howard University and got a D.D.S. in General Dentistry. Dr. Salmon then went on to the University of Rochester for training in Advanced Dentistry and practiced at the Hospital for Dentistry, where he took courses in endodontic treatment, root canal treatment, orthodontics and oral surgery. He is currently a member of the American Dental Association, the AGD which is the Academy of General Dentistry, and the AIAO, the American International Association for Orthodontists.

Dr. Salmon’s first work experience was a University of Rochester residency. He moved from there to Boston and worked in a general practice facility as well as in a public clinic for over a year. Dr. Salmon then moved to Florida, where he worked a year in West Palm Beach before relocating to North Miami where he opened his current practice. Services offered include dentures, extractions, braces, gum treatments (surgical and non-surgical) and children’s dentistry.

Dr. Salmon explains, “Dentistry is fun, I wouldn’t do anything else. Like any job, it has its ups and downs; it gets boring sometimes but, overall, I would give it an excellent grade in terms of how I enjoy it and how it can improve people’s lives. It’s a great profession. I also do volunteer work for people who are less fortunate in the islands and in other places like Belize. For example, when I volunteer in the Caribbean or South America the people are really happy and appreciative. As a volunteer, you can’t just talk to the people, you have to go in there and work, so everyone who comes to see you usually gets some type of work done, whether it’s a cleaning, an extraction, or a filling. I’ve recently been to Jamaica, Belize, and St. Kitts as part of a team for an organization called Global Health Ministries. Sometimes they may organize a trip, or, if they don’t have one for that year, I would go with some other organization. There’s a group in Minnesota who has fixed dates about 3-4 times a year, so I just pick a date and go, everything I need is there, it’s well equipped.  They just need manpower, and sometimes they may ask us to donate certain materials like gauze and needles and we try to take those along.

In his spare time, Dr. Salmon enjoys golf, soccer, traveling, reading, and keeping up with his profession. In other words, he works hard and likes to enjoy life.
