Meet Doctor Peguero


Dr. Peguero was born and raised in Miami, Florida, where he attended Belen Jesuit Preparatory School. After graduating third in his class from Belen in 2001, he received the prestigious Chancellor’s Scholarship to attend Vanderbilt University in Nashville, Tennessee, graduating Summa Cum Laude in 2005 with a Bachelors of Science degree in Neuroscience and Spanish Literature. Dr. Peguero then proceeded to the Harvard School of Dental Medicine, where he received his Doctor of Dental Medicine degree in 2009 and graduated Magna Cum Laude. Upon completion of dental school, he remained in Boston, Massachusetts, and began his specialty training in the Department of Endodontics at the Tufts University School of Dental Medicine. He received his Certificate of Advanced Graduate Study in Endodontics in June 2011.

In July 2011, Dr. Peguero returned to Miami to embark on his professional career. He is delighted and blessed to be reunited with his family and friends, once again in the warm and sunny confines of South Florida. In his new home, Dr. Peguero remains active in local and national dental organizations, serving as a member of the American Assocation of Endodontists, the American Dental Association, the Florida Dental Association, and the South Florida District Dental Association. He is also actively pursuing board certification in endodontics, having successfully attained the status of Board Eligible Endodontist, American Board of Endodontics, in July.

Dr. Peguero donates time to community service as well, participating annually in the Give Kids A Smile campaign, which provides free dental care and education to under-served children. During his time in Boston, he also volunteered often at the Bridge Over Troubled Waters, a medical/dental facility for homeless youth. Dr. Peguero looks forward to continuing to serve those in need in the South Florida area.
