Dr. Joelle Balmir-Thevenin received her Doctor of Dental Surgery degree from Faculté d'Odontologie in Port-au-Prince, Haiti in 1986. In 1988, she attended the NYU College of Dentistry and became licensed to practice in New York. Five years later she moved to Miami, where she now practices, serving the Little Haiti and North Miami community. She continues to keep pace with the growth and changes in the dental industry by maintaining active membership with the American Dental Association, the Dade County Dental Society and the Florida Dental Association.
At Balmir-Thevenin Associates, we emphasize the importance of a preventative approach to dental care. Preventative dentistry means combatting the effects of plaque before it can cause damage to your teeth and gums. In addition to your commitment to brushing and flossing at home, we recommend coming in twice a year for a dental cleaning and comprehensive examination. An examination allows Dr. Balmir-Thevenin to detect any oral health conditions early on, when they are easiest to treat. Cavities are typically treated by removing the decayed matter, then restoring the shape and function of the tooth with a dental filling. For deeper decay, we may recommend root canal therapy, which is the most effective way to save a tooth that has irreversible damage at the nerve. Dr. Balmir-Thevenin will keep you comfortable and relaxed throughout treatment.
Our practice also offers cosmetic and restorative solutions, combining the art and science of dentistry, to give you a healthy, beautiful smile. Teeth whitening, dental bonding, tooth colored fillings, porcelain veneers and dental crowns are all procedures designed to restore and enhance the appearance of your smile. To replace missing teeth, we offer dental implants, fixed bridges and comfortable, natural looking dentures. Replacing missing teeth reestablishes your smile and your quality of life, and with today’s innovations, the results are more effective and aesthetically pleasing than ever before.
If you are ever faced with a dental emergency, having the right dentist by your side can make a difficult situation easier to manage. At Balmir-Thevenin Associates, we will prioritize your urgent condition and get you in to see a dentist right away. Whether you have suffered a traumatic injury, a persistent toothache or a broken denture, we will address your situation with expedient and compassionate care.
