What Can I Expect From My First Visit to Your Office?

In this video, Dr. Victor Apel, a renowned Melbourne dentist, explains what your initial visit to our practice will consist of, as transparency with our patients is of the utmost importance at Designing Smiles.

For people coming into our office, the first you should expect is a warm welcome from our front desk coordinator, Tayri. She’ll help get you oriented to all of the options that are going to be available to you. You’ll come in, and we’ll get necessary radiographs—which usually include a CBCT and a Panorex X-ray—followed by any other necessary records to find out what are the options for your particular needs. So give us a call, and we can help you be you again.

Learn More About Our Team



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.
