Meet the Team – Miracle Dental Center
Dr. May Yazji-Corey, D.M.D.
When Dr. Yazji-Corey graduated from Nova Southeastern University in 2004, she was immediately in a very select and unique position. For many classmates, it was their first introduction to live as a Doctor of Dental Medicine. For a select few, it was their second dental degree, having graduated and been licensed in another country, but for Dr. Yazji-Corey, it was her THIRD dental degree, in her THIRD country.
She brings a multitude of experience, having practiced for more than twenty years, combined with knowledge of cutting-edge technology, from her recent tenure at Nova Southeastern University. This unique combination has earned the doctor an unmatched reputation, and a loyal following from both her patients and peers alike. At Miracle Dental Center, Dr. Yazji-Corey has assembled some of the top specialists in South Florida. Every aspect of dentistry from prevention to restorative, to cosmetic, to surgical needs has been covered by a TOP ASSOCIATE at the Center.
As a mom of three beautiful daughters and a step mom to two wonderful sons, Dr. Yazji-Corey has instilled her passion for education. Her specific love of dentistry has been passed on to her youngest daughter, Maya, who graduated as a dentist, in 2007. The American Dental Association did a feature article on the mother and daughter team.
To accentuate the doctor’s truly international background, she will be happy to converse with her patients in English, French, Arabic, Creole, or Spanish.

Dr. Rodriguez’s mission is to promote optimal oral health care for infants and children through adolescence including those with special needs.
In her own words, “We have a very preventive oriented practice in all aspects of child dentistry which we believe will aid our young patients in their dental well being. To achieve this goal, we encourage parents to be involved, not only in the development of good oral hygiene and eating habits, but also in understanding their child’s dental needs, as well as keeping timely dental visits so that any early diagnosis in regards to their child’s oral condition can be addressed promptly and appropriately. To that end, Dr. Rodriguez encourages the presence of parents in the treatment room as this will usually help the children to feel more safe and secure.
At Miracle Dental Center we invite you to come in and learn more about our special kind of Pediatric Dentistry and Orthodontics.
