For Dr. Michael Maya, helping others to look and feel their absolute best is a dream come true. He simply can’t imagine doing anything else! Dr. Maya is a native of North Miami Beach and couldn’t be happier to provide excellent dental care to his community every day as a member of the Beach Dental Care family.
After majoring in biology and psychology at the University of Central Florida, Dr. Maya attended Boston University’s Goldman School of Dental Medicine to receive his Doctorate and completed a 10-week externship at the Miami VA Medical Center. He relocated to New York City after graduation to pursue postdoctoral training and completed his general practice residency at Wyckoff Heights Medical Center in Brooklyn. Next, Dr. Maya moved back to Miami and focused on cosmetic and general dentistry for two years before returning to Manhattan, where he treated a wide population of patients in a fast-paced environment in the Grand Central Station area.
Shortly after returning to his roots in Miami, Dr. Maya was happy to join the Beach Dental Care team. He’s been helping the families of the area ever since. He’s undergone advanced training in cosmetic and advanced restorative dentistry, restorative implant dentistry, oral surgery, endodontics, removable prosthetics, and the use of digital and CAD/CAM technology for the fabrication of crowns and bridges.
Dr. Maya’s favorite part of his job is getting to know his patients one-on-one. He loves educating others on all there is to know about the dental field, and he particularly enjoys discussing treatments and making patients aware of any alternative options they might have.
Away from work, Dr. Maya likes playing sports, going to the gym, practicing the guitar, and traveling. He also gives his time to the Give Kids a Smile program in both New York and South Florida.
