Sandra Derringer, DMD, Owner
I enjoy taking care of people, interacting with them and helping with their dental needs. I realize some people have concerns or fears of going to the dentist and I am respectful, compassionate, and even entertaining to help my patients have a pleasant dental experience. I treat all my patients as I would want to be treated or as I would treat my own daughters. I feel blessed to work with so many wonderful patients. We share our stories and lives with each other, celebrating fun events and creating meaningful relationships. I love educating them about the importance of maintaining their oral health or making improvements when necessary, and then celebrating when optimal health is achieved. I absolutely love practicing dentistry and have been working in a dental office since I was 15 years old! I was employed as a dental assistant, then attended Palm Beach Community College graduating in 1988 as a licensed dental hygienist. Gaining more and more respect for the profession and wanting to give more to my patients, I returned to school, Palm Beach Atlantic College, in 1990 to complete my prerequisites for dental school. I, then, continued my education at the University of Louisville School of Dentistry, graduating in 1997 with my Doctorate of Dental Medicine.
