Founder & Orthodontist at Vitral Orthodontics
Dr. Santana is the founder and orthodontist at Vitral Orthodontics, a beautiful, state-of-the-art specialty office in Casselberry, Fl. The name Vitral comes from the Spanish word for stained glass that inspired the facility. Dr. Santana believes that a beautiful, healthy smile allows a person’s true light to shine.
Dr. Santana is a Cuban-born dentist, a graduate of one of the leading dentistry schools in Cuba where she practiced before being sent abroad to work as a dentist and Clinical Instructor of Dentistry in Venezuela. While there, she learned of the U.S. visa program for outstanding Cuban doctors working outside Cuba and bravely decided to defect. After an arduous journey, she was granted a visa to the United States.
After relocating and completing the National Board Dental Examinations, Dr. Santana attended Boston University’s School of Dental Medicine and earned her second dental degree with High Honors. Next, she completed the Orthodontics program and received a Master of Science in Orthodontics and Dentofacial Orthopedics from Boston University. Dr. Santana practiced orthodontics in Massachusetts for three years, where she published both in the American Journal of Public Health and the American Journal of Orthodontics.
Since moving to Florida in 2018, Dr. Santana has pursued her true calling: opening Vitral Orthodontics, a modern, crisp and peaceful space that allows Dr. Santana and her team to provide the best patient possible experience, outstanding care, and welcoming service for your entire family. Fluent in English and Spanish, her practice offers fully digital services, including clear aligners, custom 3D-printed translucent braces, and metal braces.
Outside the office, Dr. Santana loves spending time with her husband, her adorable kids, and her extended family. She enjoys cooking, poetry, and traveling.
