Rarely has a dentist been trained so thoroughly and so completely as Dr. Jean-Jacques Edderai, having studied extensively, all over the world.
Having grown up in France, Venezuela and Israel, Dr. Edderai is comfortable and fluent in French, Spanish, Hebrew and of course English. After attending the Montefiore Academy in London, he went to Israel to study technical radiology with some of the leading doctors and professors in the field, at Tel-Aviv University. Upon graduation, Dr. Edderai, became chief technician of the children cardiac catheterization lab at Military Hospital (Fundacardin) in Caracas, Venezuela.
While there was much professional and personal satisfaction in this position, Dr. Edderai felt that he had more to offer the medical field. He re-located to Miami to perfect his English at the University of Miami and then to New York to study psychology at Queens College. His studies then took him to his true calling, dentistry.
Dr. Edderai went to the prestigious Dominican Dental University where he graduated and then moved back to Miami to begin his career. Practicing and perfecting dentistry has become the focus of his professional career and studies. Dr. Edderai is trained in General Dentistry, Dental Implants, Dental Surgery, Orthodontics, Endodontics, Temporomandibular Joint Disorders and Periodontics.
He is trained in Electromyography, Electrognathography, Joint Vibration Analysis, Orthognatic Repositioning treatment and Myofunctional therapy. Additionally, he has twice completed a training program at The Tampa Bay Cranio Facial Center and has completed the two years training program at the United States Dental Institute. Dr. Edderai also gives back to his profession and to his community. He has been volunteering for over 10 years to work once a month in the free dental clinic at Lindsey Hopkins Dental Research Clinic. He is also eligible to become a Fellow of the Academy of Dentistry and was an examiner for the Florida Dental Board.
With all these accomplishments, it’s hard to imagine that he has time for anything else. However, Dr. Edderai finds time to be one of the lay leaders of Yeshiva Elementary School, Mechina High School, and The Shul of Bal Harbor. He is a devoted husband and father of three beautiful children.
The same dedication and uncompromising commitment that Dr. Edderai demands of himself, he brings to every one of his patients … without exception.
