Nilofer A. Khatri, DMD, PA

Chief Smile Designer

Dr. Khatri, a Tallahassee native, received her undergraduate and dental training from the University of Florida prior to pursuing specialty training in pediatrics from New York University. Before moving to Venice and joining Dr. Janoff, she practiced pediatric dentistry in Tampa. Dr. Khatri has received numerous honors and awards, is a Courtesy Clinical Assistant Professor at the University of Florida College of Dentistry, and is a Diplomat of the American Board of Pediatric Dentistry.

Here’s the skinny: Dr. Khatri is Board Certified! It's a big deal. It’s important when selecting a pediatric dentist. Not every doctor is Board Certified.

There are real advantages to receiving care from a pediatric specialist with Board-Certification and membership in the American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry, such as Dr. Khatri. Not every dentist, even pediatric dentists, is a member of this very exclusive group. Nor, do they have this specialized training.

Dr. Khatri and our crew-members are attentive to our kids’ clinical and emotional needs. They provide age appropriate explanations to minimize our kids’ concerns and to allay their very real fears. Dr. Khatri’s approach is conservative, focusing on prevention, education, and providing our kids with a positive dental experience. This leads to a lifetime of self-motivated care.

Master of Decay

Dr. Jeffrey Janoff, a native New Yorker, graduated from the University of Buffalo to pursue his DMD degree at Tufts University School of Dental Medicine in Boston.

From 1973-1977, Dr. Janoff practiced general dentistry, then deciding to specialize in pediatric dentistry. He returned to school, attending a post-graduate program at Boston University School of Dental Medicine, and graduated with a Certificate of Advanced Education in Pediatric Dentistry and a Masters of Science in Dentistry.

Dr. Janoff moved to Venice in September 1977 and opened his doors. He has been an active member of the Venice community since that time, and is happily now seeing second, and even third-generation patients!
