Dr. Elizabeth Keith is a board-certified dentist who is licensed in both Florida and North Carolina. She has 18 years of experience, with a special emphasis on restorative and aesthetic dentistry. Her areas of special interest include implantology, crown and bridgework, surgical extractions, diagnostics, and treatment planning. Dr. Keith is known for excellent skills and a compassionate chairside manner. She has excellent communication skills, and she is fluent in both English and Spanish.
Dr. Keith began her journey to dentistry at the Palm Beach Junior College where she graduated from the AA Pre-Dental program. She went on to the University of Florida in Gainesville, where she completed the microbiology program, and earned her Doctor of Dental Medicine degree in 1994. She was awarded Fellowship with the Academy of General Dentistry in 2006.
In her unwavering commitment to continuing education, Dr. Keith has completed many advanced training programs with respected institutions such as the Academy of General Dentistry and the American Dental Association. She regularly attends conferences, seminars, and lectures to stay abreast of the latest technology and techniques.
Most recently, Dr. Keith has been focusing on expanding her exceptional skills in implantology. Zirconia implants have been shown to have properties equal or superior to titanium, which is opening the door for completely metal-free dentistry, with the advantages of implants. However, the process is sophisticated and technique sensitive. This is a relatively new concept in the United States, and Dr. Keith is one of a select few dental professionals training in the procedure. In December of 2012, she completed the Zirconia Implants course with Z-Systems, the leaders in ceramic implant manufacturing.
Dr. Keith is currently enrolled in implant placement and orthodontic courses with the Atlantic Coast Research Clinic (PBSC) in Lake Worth. She has completed two courses and expects to graduate from the final phase of the program in May of 2013. Her professional affiliations include the Academy of General Dentistry (Fellow), American Dental Implant Association, American Dental Association, Florida Dental Association, Central Palm Beach County Dental Association, Atlantic Research Clinic, and North Carolina Dental Association.
