Smile Viera in Viera, FL is a family dental practice and provides a full range of dental services for patients of all ages. Disease prevention and oral health maintenance is the foundation of our practice and we strive to provide personalized, patient focused dental care for a lifetime of healthy smiles.
Family dentistry is beneficial for today’s busy parents and caregivers, providing the opportunity for all members of the family to maintain, restore and/or enhance their oral health in one convenient location. Dr. Roppa and Dr. Marshall-Roppa are experienced on treating children and offer pediatric dental services to address any dental concerns that may occur with a growing smile.
We recommend that parents or caregivers bring their children in for their first dental check up around their first birthday. This first visit provides your child the opportunity to tour our Viera dentist office, meet our staff and learn about the benefits of a clean and healthy smile. Each time your child visits builds trust and alleviates any anxiety they may feel about coming to the dentist. Our office is bright, airy and family friendly!
Why Are Primary Teeth Important?
Your child’s primary teeth play an important role in their development in several ways:
- Primary teeth are the placeholders for your child’s permanent teeth: a lost baby tooth can affect the alignment of a permanent tooth
- Primary teeth affect speech development
- Healthy primary teeth allow proper chewing and enable a varied, nutritious diet

Preventing Cavities in Children
Tooth decay remains a leading childhood disease, one which is preventable with routine dental care. Regular visits to our dental office enables Dr. Roppa and Dr. Marshall-Roppa to spot the early signs of decay and disease before more complex problems develop. Visiting the dentist regularly also lays the foundation for a lifetime of healthy oral hygiene habits.
We will offer age appropriate oral hygiene advice and instruction, and encourage parents and care givers to supervise daily brushing and flossing until late elementary age for optimal oral health.
