The opening of Dynamic Smile Design is truly a success story about the determination and hard work of Elena C. Puig. Originally from Havana, Cuba, the doctor’s family immigrated to the United States when she was just three months old and settled in Miami, Florida.
Upon graduation from The University of Central Florida with a Bachelor’s Degree in Biological Science, Dr. Puig attended Boston’s prestigious Tufts University School of Dental Medicine, where she earned her Doctorate Degree in Medical Dentistry. She then returned to Orlando to start her career as a dentist in private practice. Her accomplishments in dentistry over the last 20 years have earned her a reputation as a leader in the field of both general dentistry and cosmetic dentistry. She has worked tirelessly to become one of the best dentists in Orlando. Recognized both locally and nationally, Dr. Puig has patients from all over the state and often from other parts of the world.

Certified Registered Dental Hygienist Beth has spent her 26 years in the dental field going above and beyond for her patients. “I’m detail oriented and very gentle, and love providing excellent dental hygiene in such a relaxed and caring atmosphere,” she says.
Beth earned her Associate’s Degree in Science followed by her local anesthesia certification, and is also CPR certified. She became intrigued with dentistry while she was only a teenager. “The dental hygienist I had when I was in high school always made my dental appointments relaxing and fun, and she always talked about how much she loved her job,” Beth recalls. “It piqued my interest!” Beth says skill and attention to detail are typically the things that attract her to working in a dental office, but Dr. Puig’s compassion and generosity for her patients and staff add an extra level of excellence. When she’s not making her own patients’ experiences as pleasant as possible, Beth spends her time with her husband and their two children, or reading novels.
Dental Assistant Jessica says she believes that a good first impression is always a beautiful smile. “I want to make people happy by improving that one feature,” she says. Jessica is passionate about dentistry, and says the reward is seeing the way people feel about and react to high quality work.
Jessica attended Concorde Career College for technical school, and has continued her education throughout her 6 years of dental assisting. She says working at our practice has been an incredible experience: “Dr. Puig always listens to each patient’s needs and wants, and the whole team is an amazing support system. We all work together to provide that beautiful smile!”
When she’s not assisting in smile creation, Jessica loves going to the beach, playing football, and hanging out with her Australian Cattle Dog, Maui. She has three cherished nieces and a beloved nephew, and gives back to her community through Smiles For Life, St. Jude Children’s Hospital, and Kids Beating Cancer.
Dental Assistant Nikki has nearly 10 years under her belt in the dental industry, and works tirelessly to provide superlative care to new and existing patients. She handles consults, assists the dentist with procedures, takes X-rays, and updates patient charts. “I’m organized, efficient, and outgoing,” she says, adding “I’m living my dream job — talking to people and helping them achieve their goals!”
Nikki says enjoyed seeing her orthodontist when she had braces, but after a short period of working in an orthodontist’s office she realized she preferred general and cosmetic dentistry. She earned her CDA and EFDA, and says the best part of working in the dental field is being able to change people’s lives. “We make a difference — whether it’s giving someone back confidence by fixing a cosmetic issue, or restoring functionality and health to their smile!” When she’s not assisting with life-improving procedures, Nikki enjoys the outdoors, going to the beach, taking her dog, Harper, on long hikes, and cooking or baking.
