Katherine Rodriguez, DMD
Diplomate of the American Academy of Periodontics
Dr. Katherine Rodriguez is a Board Certified Periodontist, who followed in the footsteps of her mother. Spending summer vacations and days off in her mother’s dental office ignited her chosen career path. A self-described perfectionist, Dr. Rodriguez is precise and fastidious saying, “a millimeter although a small measurement, makes a big difference.” Her attention to the smallest details in both the art and humanity of dentistry has earned the trust and respect of patients and colleagues.
“Doing treatment is my favorite part of the job. Nothing compares to being able to change a person’s life by fixing the problems with their smile.”
Driven and ambitious, Dr. Rodriguez graduated Magna Cum Laude from the University Of Puerto Rico School Of Dentistry, and has continued to build an impressive portfolio of educational and professional accomplishments. She holds a certificate for General Practice Residency from Miami Veteran's Affairs Medical Center, and Jackson Memorial Hospital. She graduated from the Periodontology Program at Nova Southeastern University College of Dental Medicine. Her extensive training in the diagnosis and treatment of periodontal disease, as well as Implant Dentistry are integral to ONE Dental’s success. With a focus on prevention, each patient receives a comprehensive diagnostic assessment. There are no generic protocols, each treatment plan is customized to fit the patient’s personalized needs and health goals.
“Our entire practice is patient focused. We share a belief that all patients should be treated the way we would like to be treated. I do not approach dentistry as a business for it is entirely human and individual.”
Married to an architect, Dr. Rodriguez has a 4 year old daughter and 2 year old son. With a zest for life, she begins every day by saying “Today, is going to be a good day!” Away from the dental chair, she enjoys entertaining friends at home, wining and dining and traveling.

Dr. Dena Zupnik, D.D.S.
Dr. Dena Zupnik always puts the patient first and strives to provide the best care possible to her patients. Dr. Zupnik is always trying to learn new and advanced treatment methods either through continuing education courses or by reading dental journals. She has recently integrated the use of the iTero 3D intraoral scanner into her treatment methods to provide more cutting edge technology to her patients.
"It has always been my goal to continue learning in order to provide my patients with the newest and best treatment options available. I always am educating the patients on why the treatment is being rendered so they can understand and appreciate the treatment and really understand the relationship to their overall health and how it is related to their oral health status."
Dr. Zupnik grew up in Washington state and is new to the Miami area. She is excited to enjoy the warm weather that South Florida has to offer year round playing golf and enjoying the outdoors.
