Virginia Veloz, DDS Specializing in Orthodontics

I was born and raised in Lima, Peru where i graduated with honors from Dental School as a  Doctor of Dental Surgery. I've been caring for dental patients since i moved to the U.S in 2000 and started working as a dental assistant in Peterson, New Jersey. Finding a love for dentistry and a desire to further my career I became certified as a Dental Hygienist. Having my DDS degree validated in the USA gave me the opportunity to study orthodontics and I have been an associate member of the International Association of Orthodontics since 2009. After moving to Florida in 2005, I joined Dr. Szczepanik's team in 2006 and I am thrilled to be a part of a dynamic team whose focus is on the health of their patients.

When not working, I enjoy spending time with my two boys and coaching the volleyball club I  started in 2014.
