Inspired by the passion for orthodontics and by the importance of building relationships and staying connected with patients, Dr. Dopazo and her team are dedicated to creating a fun-loving atmosphere that makes patients feel like they are family. It is their mission to provide orthodontic treatment to children and adults with an experience that wows every step of the way.
Dr. Dopazo has been creating beautiful healthy smiles for over 15 years. She is a Florida native raised in Brazil where she earned her Doctorate of Dental Surgery degree, in 1997. Graduating at the top of her class, she attended the University of Florida’s Orthodontic Residency Program receiving her Master of Science degree and Certificate in Orthodontics and Dentofacial Orthopedics. She then returned to Brazil where she operated her orthodontic practice for several years before returning to Florida in 2005 when she accepted a full time faculty position as Clinical Assistant Professor at the University of Florida’s Orthodontic Department, primarily involved with the clinical training of future orthodontists.
Dr. Dopazo moved to Jacksonville in 2011 to dedicate herself to her orthodontic practice located in the San Marco area. She remains involved in academics, currently serving as part time orthodontic faculty at University of Florida.
Dopazo Orthodontics combines skillful artistry with the most progressive orthodontic techniques available, including state-of-the-art equipment such as the iTero® Digital Scanner, which replaces traditional impressions resulting in more patient comfort, precise digital models and allows for immediate 3D treatment simulation. Dr. Dopazo is extensively experienced with Invisalign and Invisalign Teen clear aligners; she also offers accelerated treatment with Acceledent and Propel, both designed to reduce treatment time by 50% when combined with orthodontic care.
