Meet Dr. Deborah Ferrer
Hello, and welcome to my practice! I enjoy orthodontics because I get to make a difference in people’s lives by giving them beautiful, confident smiles. I love watching a shy, timid child who doesn’t want to smile transform into an outgoing, confident young person! I also really love working with adults because we develop a relationship over the years, and I get to learn about their lives and families. It gives me great satisfaction to see the powerful effects of orthodontics on all of my patients!
In the Office
I specialize in treating both children and adult patients, and I offer a variety of orthodontic options, including Suresmile, Invisalign, clear braces, and lingual braces. I maintain a state-of-the-art facility with the latest orthodontic technology, including digital X-rays for reduced radiation and 24-hour online access to your account and images.
I provide only the highest quality of care and customer service. I truly care about each of my patients and their families. I am a perfectionist in my work, and believe that every patient should be seen on time. Because our office is focused on individualized quality care, every patient is given the quality time they deserve.
A comfortable, soothing chairside manner comes naturally to me as a mother, which helps me relate to children at their level. I always take the time to listen and educate my patients. We have a fun, upbeat office that makes both kids and adults feel comfortable and welcome. We have patient contests and smile rewards cards to make braces more fun. Children have a truly fun experience from the day they get their braces to the day those braces come off!
I was featured twice on Channel 10 for an extreme dental makeover and a segment about Suresmile! View Video
I am a native of Ft. Lauderdale and love serving people in my hometown! I am married to my husband, John, and have two children, Julia and John. Outside the office, I enjoy spending time with my family, playing racquetball, and skiing. I am also active in the Alzheimer’s Charity Foundation and local schools.
I attended the University of Florida College of Dentistry, where I graduated at the top of my class.
