Meet The Team
When forming Bay Breeze Dentistry, Dr. Santana knew that she wanted an office setting that her patients would be able to enjoy. In order to accomplish this, she surrounded herself with not only some of the best equipment, but with the best team members. Dr. Santana specifically searched for those that have an understanding for quality, thorough work, caring and thoughtfulness for the patient, and an upbeat attitude in the office. From the minute you step in the office to the time you leave, the team of Bay Breeze Dentistry is there to make the patient's experience a pleasurable visit!
