Community By Roselind Romero Friday, July 19, 2013

Miami Lakes' Park Centre Shopping Center now features Lakes Orthodontics, a family owned and operated personal practice ready to serve residents of Miami Lakes and the surrounding areas. Practicing orthodontist Carmen Briceno Crespi, along with her husband Alex Crespi, financial coordinator, opened the practice in early July. 

Lakes Orthodontics specializes in orthodontic treatment for children, teens and adults. All latest treatment options are available including Invisalign, metal, ceramic and self-ligating braces. 

Carmen Crespi and her husband both attended Hialeah Miami Lakes Senior High School and currently reside in the Town of Miami Lakes.

"We are looking forward to bringing our expertise and passion to our home area of Miami Lakes and looking forward to seeing all new patients," said Alex Crespi.

Carmen Crespi, following in her parents' footsteps, has been interested in dentistry since the age of 12. She attended the dental school at the University of Florida and continued her studies at Baylor College of Dentistry. She is a board certified orthodontic specialist, certified by the American Board of Orthodontics, American Association of Orthodontics, American Dental Association and the Florida Dental Association.

Though this is the first practice for the couple as owners, Carmen Crespi has been a practicing orthodontist since 2007 and brings her years of expertise to Lakes Orthodontics. In addition to her years in orthodontic care, she is also an attending faculty member at Miami Children's Hospital, running the orthodontic curriculum for the pediatric dental patients. 

"It's been a lifelong dream to finally open a practice and I look forward to serving the people in my community," said Carmen Crespi.

A free first consultation trial is available for an oral examination and x-ray followed by discussing treatment options according to results.  

Appointment times are now available. Office hours are from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Tuesdays through Friday and 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. on Saturdays. For more information, call 305-820-6800, email or visit the website at
