DR. LISET PEREZ
About DR. LISET PEREZ, General Dentist
I was born in a small town in Cuba and grew up in Miami. I received my dental degree from Columbia University College of Dental Medicine in New York City. I then went on to complete my training at a postgraduate residency program at the Brooklyn Veterans Affairs NY Harbor Healthcare System.
I speak Spanish and English.
Dentistry is very rewarding. I love to connect with patients and take time to educate them. Dentistry can make patients feel very vulnerable and I strive to make them feel as comfortable as possible. It is the little things in life that make the biggest difference.
Staying active is very important to me. In my free time, I enjoy strength training and rock climbing. However, my favorite thing to do is to dance salsa. I also love traveling, going to the beach, paddle boarding, watching Disney Movies and exploring new places to eat.
