Meet Victor C. Apel, DMD

In this video, Dr. Victor Apel, a renowned Melbourne implant and restorative dentist, introduces himself and discusses his passion for providing quality dental care to the Melbourne community.

Hello. I’m Dr. Victor Apel of Designing Smiles, and we’re a Mini Dental Implant Center of America. We want to welcome you to our practice and let you know that we have a full library of informational videos that you can access at any time to not only get to know the practice and the staff, but the procedures and the treatments that we actually provide.

I’ve been in Florida since 1988, providing service to the people of Melbourne and really enjoying the relationships that we’ve been able to build over that time. I’m on my third generation now, and for us, it’s where we really get a reward: it’s the relationships that we build, and we really focus currently on the mini implants.

I’ve done traditional implants for over 20 years, but really found the benefits of mini dental implants that help those individuals that were never really a good candidate for implants. So come to us for a free consultation. We will help you be you again.

Dr. Apel has been in practice in Melbourne since 1988. Originally from Louisville, Kentucky, he graduated from the University of Louisville’s School of Dental Medicine, a facility for training physicians and dentists. He maintained a successful private practice in Louisville for five years, but Florida’s pleasant climate and the promise of year-round outside activities brought the Apels to the sunshine state.

Dr. Apel is a member in good standing with the American Dental Association, the Florida Dental Association, the Brevard County Dental Society, the International Academy of Mini Dental Implants, and recently earned his fellowship with the International Dental Implant Association. He also maintains ongoing professional relationships with recognized researchers and clinicians.

Dr. Apel is dedicated to providing you with the latest proven treatment methods, participates regularly in courses and seminars and is now a Mini Implant Center of America (MDICA) providing you with revolutionary benefits of mini dental implant dentistry.
