Meet Dr. Javier Girardot

Javier F. Girardot, DMD

My profession, first and foremost, is about caring for others and improving their lives. Being able to do that in a fun and upbeat environment is why pediatric dentistry is the best!

Being a pediatric dentist means so much to me — it is my chance to introduce dentistry to children in a fun, friendly way, ensuring that they always have a positive experience. There is nothing more rewarding than developing a lasting relationship while providing quality, gentle pediatric dental care. It’s fulfilling to know I have a positive, life-long influence on a child, ensuring they are excited about caring for their smiles.

I’ve always enjoyed interacting with infants, children, teens, adolescents, and those with special needs — and treating them as I would my own. During each visit, I take time to talk with them about their life, their family and friends, and their adventures. I genuinely want to learn who they are and love how they share so much of their life with me. I find great joy in being part of a child’s life and treasure the trust they place in me.

Education and Experience

I was born in Colombia, South America. At the age of 12, my family and I moved to Boca Raton. I received a Bachelor of Science in biology and graduated magna cum laude from Florida Atlantic University. I decided to pursue my interest in dentistry and received my Doctorate of Dental Medicine from Nova Southeastern University-College of Dental Medicine.

I was awarded the American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry's Certificate of Merit Award for my involvement in and passion for pediatric dentistry, and was inducted into OKU, the dental honor society. I completed my pediatric dentistry residency at Cincinnati Children’s Hospital Medical Center, where I served as chief resident during my final year.

Education is a vital aspect of my role as a pediatric dentist, both for my patients and for my team and me. My team and I often go to schools around our community to teach children the importance of oral health in a way that makes it fun and easy to understand.

I believe my young patients and their parents deserve a pediatric dentist who’s up to date with new treatments and technology. I attend courses throughout the year to learn new techniques and developments in the rapidly advancing field of pediatric dentistry. I feel it is my duty to incorporate the best and most useful products and materials into my practice in order to improve my patients’ experience.

Outside the Office

My wife Crystal and I live in Baldwin Park along with our two children, Aurora and Luca. I love spending time with my family, whether we are going to Disney World or just visiting parks around our neighborhood.

When we can, Crystal and I like to enjoy local restaurants and have movie date nights. I am a sports enthusiast, especially for the Miami Heat, Miami Hurricanes, and Miami Dolphins.
