Meet Dr. Daya

Dr. Abelardo Daya is originally from Puerto la Cruz, Venezuela. He first obtained his dental degree from Universidad Gran Mariscal de Ayacucho (UGMA) in Barcelona, Venezuela.

He completed the International Dental Graduate (IDG) program at Nova Southeastern University where he received his Doctor of Dental Medicine (D.M.D.) degree in 2016 ranking in the top 10% of his class. He continued his education at NSU where he specialized in Orthodontics and Dentofacial Orthopedics in 2018 and obtained a Masters in Science degree. Dr. Daya is a board certified orthodontist from the prestigious American Board of Orthodontics (ABO) since April 2019.
