Dr. At Work


I just had my first appointment yesterday, all from start was very smooth, Yailin, the dental assistant, dealt with me being nervous and was very patient and caring all the time, I definitely recommend Dr. Ordonez and South Miami Family Dental office to everyone, you will lose your fear to the dentist there.


The staff was exemplary and took the time to explain everything. With so many medical and dental offices that are run like an assembly line, it is refreshing to encounter a practice where each patient feels as if they come first.


Great people, excellent service. Were very gentle and always concerned about what they were doing. The Doctor and the nurses were really nice. Mostly I will be coming back for ny next appointment. And of course last but not least. The price was good, affordable.


I have been a patient of Dr. Alvaro Ordonez’s for quite some time as I had a severe TMJ disorder. With all his advanced equipment he was able to get to the root of my pain and fix with splits as the other alternative was to have surgery as as you all know their are life risks such as ear rupture,loss of hearing as well as vision, facial paralysis, possible plastic surgery and yes even sudden death. After meeting with about a dozen of doctors that were highly recommended no one by far could compare with his approach to relieving my migraines as I ended up in numerous hospital emergency rooms, also completed a full migraine history chart with a neurologist as I was suffering from severe pain in all extremities. Lastly I had even seen a rehabilitation specialist which did not work. Now I live a pain free life and after 2 years of research to find Dr.Ordonez’ is like finding a rare diamond. Thank you Dr.O for giving me back my life! Best regards

Dr. Ordonez and his staff are very informative and compassionate. Thanks to them I am pain free and don’t have to worry about my TMJ anymore, which I am very thankful for. The office is very clean and I never have to wait long for my appointments. I am very impressed and will continue to go to this doctor.

Thanks to Dr. Ordonez I can live a comfortable life. I have TMJ, a disorder that is poorly understood by most dentist. Dr. Ordonez was the only doctor that was able to help me and virtually eliminated my TMJ symptoms to almost none. I highly recommend Doctor Ordonez to anyone suffering from this disorder. Thank you Dr. Ordonez for giving me a better life!

Dr. Ordonez is the most prestigious dentist I have ever met. I went to the doctor’s office by a complicated situation of implants and the doctor made me work in reconstruction of bone and two implants that work great. Never had more problems in my mouth since they took control. I get dental cleanings there periodically and lately he recommend me a mouth guard for the bite and TMJ problems. His staff is adorable, kind and very pretty women. I’m very satisfied and highly recommend Dr. Ordonez for all dentist related.

My experience at this practice has been always great. Staff is friendly and knowledgeable. I highly recommended it! This was my second time and I have done extensive research on this last procedure and Dr. Ordonez has made it much better, considering the seriousness. I came with a lot of questions and they were responded promptly. Excellent professional. I am not a 5-stars person but I think it is well-deserved.

I have never been treated so professionally and special at the same time. As a provider servicing patients, I would hope that they would leave with similar feelings. I have spent considerable amounts of money on my teeth and resented the finances of good hygiene. Even though I was presented with a treatment plan with the amount which was expensive, I was impressed that I got a treatment plan. That was the first time it ever happened in my hundreds of visits to dentists. The staff was as professional, efficient, knowledgeable, sweet and extremely capable as Dr. Ordonez. As I left, I was told that the Dr. wanted to say goodbye. He also rewarded me with an ethnic lunch for me to take home. Having had very negative experiences from childhood on, I am looking forward to getting this work done with this office. I don’t mind driving from the Keys to Miami. I would recommend him highly.

Love the staff, the professionalism, the efficiency. Yailin (dental hygienist) can’t say enough about her. Super gentle, knowledgeable and friendly. Dr. Ordonez is great.
