Discovering A Passion for Transforming Smiles
My interest in the field of orthodontics began as early as middle school, which led me to eventually become a dental assistant and discover my passion for dental care. I was driven to choose the dental profession by a desire to transform others’ lives through changing their smiles and bolstering the confidence they have in themselves. Each day, I come to work so I can help make a difference in people’s lives by working closely with them to help create beautiful smiles.
After 23 years of working as an orthodontist, I still love and enjoy what I do. It has always been my goal to make each patient feel comfortable and provide excellent results when they come to me for their orthodontic treatment. Over the years, I have met wonderful patients and their families. Every day I feel blessed to have made a difference in my patients’ lives.
It is for stories like this one that I come to work:
“I know that without the smile that I have now, I would have never had the confidence to do the things that I am doing.
So thanks, Dr. Rosie, for everything you have done for me … and for all you kids just like me, go check out Dr. Rosie Aviles and find your own winning smile just waiting to shine!”

Motivated by my deep commitment to excellence and my dedication to my patients, I achieved a board certification through the American Board of Orthodontics (ABO). I have received other awards and honors, including the American Association of Women Dentists Award, the American Society of Pediatric Dentistry Award and the Academy of General Dentistry Award. I was also selected as a member of the Omicron Kappa Upsilon Dental Honor Society and have held a professor position at the University of Florida College of Dentistry.
As a diplomate of both the American Board of Orthodontics and the Roth Williams International Society of Orthodontists (RWISO), I feel it is important to stay on the cutting-edge of orthodontics in order to offer the most advanced treatments. Thus, I hold active memberships in various local, state and national dental/orthodontic organizations, including:
- The Florida Association of Orthodontists
- The Southern Association of Orthodontists
- The Florida Dental Association
- The American Dental Association®
- The American Association of Orthodontists®
- The American Board of Orthodontics
I have been married to my husband, Rene Aviles, DMD, since 1991, and we have two wonderful children. We have established our residency in Palm City since 1998.
