Why I decided to get into dentistry was, it was quite simple. I was always very good with my hands. I was always very good with people. I thought dentistry was an absolute natural meld of that. I enjoy the building of a comfortable practice, of a practice that people are proud to refer their family and friends to. The most rewarding part of this practice to me is getting the feedback from our patients that they are completely comfortable here. They have found a dental home where they believe in the practice. They have a high level of trust in the practice. They appreciate our integrity and the quality of our work. We are very proud of the fact that we can deliver pretty much every aspect of clinical, restorative, and surgical dentistry to our community. Dr. Bidkar tends to do a little bit more on the surgical side of things. Dr. Pennington tends to lean a bit toward more cosmetics and crown/bridge, and Dr. Delgado, mostly restorative-type work. Collectively, it's a fantastic group. I believe in their services, and we stand behind whatever they do.
After graduating from Columbia University College of Dental Medicine in 1988 with his Doctor of Dental Surgery (DDS) degree, Dr. Robert Adami completed his residency in general dentistry at Nassau University Medical Center in East Meadow, NY, where he was chief resident as well as an instructor.
Following his residency, Dr. Adami accepted a hospital staff position as an attending dentist, where he worked closely with incoming dental resident classes, both in their direct dental training and academic requirements. While working at the hospital, he was also an associate dentist in two local East Meadow private practices.
Dr. Adami relocated to South Florida in 1992, where he joined a large general dentistry practice in Cooper City. He was a partner and co-owner of the practice until 2008, when he moved north to Palm Beach County and started Designer Family Dental as a solo endeavor, without any patients of record and only two employees. After expansions over the years, Designer Family Dental in Delray Beach has grown to include thousands of patients and 25 full-time employees.
With the rapid growth of Designer Family Dental and a strong desire to maintain quality control, Dr. Adami has since become a full-time administrator of the practice and no longer delivers direct patient care. However, he maintains sole ownership, is more accessible than ever, and is very much a part of all policies and procedures. It is extremely important to Dr. Adami that his patients consistently have pleasant experiences and feel like family while being treated here.
Dr. Adami has an unwavering dedication to ensuring that his patients receive the same compassionate and high-level care that has become synonymous with Designer Family Dental.
