Meet Dr. Camacho
Uncertain about starting anew, Dr. Norbert Camacho moved to the States at the age of 12 to be with his family. Initially unsure if it was worth it to part away from his loved ones, he later understood his parents’ decision to leave Cuba. It took dedication and conviction to overcome the cultural barriers and learn a new language. However, Dr. Camacho devoted himself to his studies & desire to help others in order to compensate for his parents’ sacrifice.
He was born to a family of physicians in San Juan de Los Remedios, one of Cuba’s first Spanish settlements, where he spent the first 12 years of his life focusing on school & with the idea of wanting to become an architect.
He continued his primary and high school education in Miami, FL where his outstanding performance and interest in the sciences became apparent. He later embraced the idea of following his family’s tradition, allowing him to exploit his artistic hand skills through a career in dental medicine. As a chemistry and psychology graduate from Florida International University, Dr. Camacho decided to become a Florida gator and attend the University of Florida’s College of Dentistry, where he excelled academically and in the community. He focused his efforts to grow professionally in dentistry and undertake leading roles as class president and volunteer. Serving others through student government and international mission trips were moments that enhanced his understanding and compassion for cultures. While at UF, he was awarded with the Student Leadership Award by the International College of Dentists for his outstanding leadership while pursuing a Doctor of Dental Medicine degree.
Graduating summa cum laude from UF’s Dental School, he was accepted into an outstanding residency program through the University of Florida in St. Petersburg, FL. In this highly-recognized program, Dr. Camacho treated patients of all ages, who were most medically compromised or with special needs. He obtained intensive training in advanced treatment planning, implantology, cosmetics, endodontics, & periodontal/oral surgery. With a strong education from his alma mater and the direction of dedicated specialists and professors such as world renowned Dr. Pete Dawson, Dr. Camacho expanded his area of expertise with emphasis in comprehensive dentistry.
