Abbey D. Morales, D.M.D.
Dr. Abbey Morales is originally from Michigan but considers Florida her home, having grown up in Fort Myers since she was 3 years old. With a combination of education from the University of Central Florida and Florida Gulf Coast University, she earned her bachelor’s degree in Elementary Education and taught third grade. She enjoyed the interactions with her students, but always knew that dentistry was the perfect career to blend her love for science, creativity, entrepreneurship, and people.
The decision to follow her passion and continue her education lead Dr. Abbey to receiving another bachelor’s degree in Health Science and going on to study dentistry at Midwestern University in Glendale, Arizona where she earned her Doctor of Dental Medicine. Arizona was gorgeous but the pull of family, friends, and white-sand beaches brought her back to Florida, where she practiced dentistry in Port Charlotte and Fort Myers for over 6 years prior to moving to Auburndale.
Dr. Abbey is committed to providing the most current and innovative dental treatment to her patients, including not only General, Cosmetic, and Implant Dentistry but also services in Sleep Apnea Dental Appliance Therapy and Invisalign. Her passion for acquiring comprehensive dental excellence has led to many hours of advanced dental education through the prestigious Dawson Academy for Advanced Dental Study, Dental Sleep Solutions, and Implant Educators, the University of Florida’s affiliated continuum in Implant Dentistry. She prides herself in staying up to date with the latest technology and improvements in order to offer a wide range of services for all ages in a low anxiety setting.
Dr. Abbey is distinguished as a Fellow of the International Congress of Oral Implantologists and is working toward her Diplomate status. She stays active in her field on a local and national level as a member of American Dental Association, Academy of General Dentistry, Florida Dental Association, American Academy of Dental Sleep Medicine, West Coast Dental Association, and Polk County Dental Society, and The Rotary Club of Auburndale.
In her free time, Dr. Abbey Morales enjoys spending time with her husband and her two Shih Tzu’s, Charlie and Jeter. She loves trying new restaurants, attending sporting events and live productions, and traveling. During the professional football and baseball seasons, you will find her cheering on the Tampa Bay Bucs and the New York Yankees.
