Pediatric Dentistry Committed to Care & Comfort

Dr. Mimy Bendeck

Dr. Mirna Bendeck is an experienced pediatric dentist that has been providing outstanding dental care for children in Palm Beach County for over twenty five years. She graduated from Universidad Nacional Autonoma de Honduras in 1980. She continued her studies at Georgia State University and completed her training in pediatric dentistry at Emory University and Scottish Rite Children’s Hospital in Atlanta, Georgia. She completed her residency in 1985 and then moved with her husband, Rudy, and three children to Palm Beach Gardens. She opened Children’s Dentistry in 1986 while expecting her fourth child. Her love and compassion for children and their families was obvious from the start and soon earned her the affectionate name of Dr. Mimy, which remains to this day. Dr. Mimy’s reputation as a leader in pediatric dentistry has grown through the years. She strives to bring the most up-to-date technology by maintaining a state-of-the-art facility, train a highly skilled staff, and appoints additional highly qualified pediatric dentists to serve in our practice. But the hallmark of her success is her unchanged love for children and a passion for their well-being.
