Meet the Doctors

Meet Michael Radu, DDS, MS

Meet the DoctorDr. Michael Radu believes dentistry is more of a science that can be taught, rather than an art one has to have a knack for. For that reason he not only stays up to date on his own continuing education, but is an instructor himself. In the Boca Institute for Dental Education, other professionals receive certification from Dr. Radu’s many workshops. He’s also an adjunct professor at Nova Southeastern University in Fort Lauderdale.

General philosophy

In Dr. Radu’s own words, “We are here to help our patients achieve their oral health objectives for now, and for the rest of their lives.” Dr. Radu hopes to build a lasting doctor/patient relationship with you so he can care for your teeth for the long term.

He believes that the best way to overcome any fears a person may experience about going to the dentist, is to take the time to explain every aspect of the dental care. That way, the patient can alleviate any fear of the unknown, fear of pain, or even fear of having to spend money unnecessarily.

Meet Daniel Radu, DMD

Daniel Radu DMD - Meet the DoctorsDr. Daniel Radu graduated from Tufts University School of Dental Medicine in Boston, with an incredible education from renowned professors. His time at school allowed for extensive hands-on experience with the newest in modern technologies in the dental field, including CAD/CAM crowns and implant restorative procedures.

His dream to become a dentist and continue in his fathers’ footsteps pushed him to graduate with a B.S. Degree from the University of Miami in 3 years, and continue directly after to Tufts for his D.M.D. degree. His determination and motivation to become a dentist stemmed from his belief that patients should be able to fully trust their dentist, and never feel confused or misunderstood during their visits. For this reason, he seeks to build a clear picture for the patient, and takes the time to go through a thorough exam, where the patient is not only listened to, but also brought into the treatment planning process themselves.

He feels patients should be educated as to their problems, as well as the options to solve these problems, so that they may make a well-informed decision, based not only on their desires, but also on the knowledge from their dentist.
