Dr. Nadja A. Horst is a third-generation dentist practicing in the downtown Fort Lauderdale area since 2001. She received her degree in microbiology and cell science from the University of Florida. She then went off to Nova Southeastern University College of Dental Medicine, where she graduated with her Doctor of Dental Medicine (DMD).
Prior to practicing dentistry, Dr. Horst was a trained dental technician and was involved in research in the area of oral microbiology. She is also a member of the American Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry, Academy of General Dentistry, American Dental Association®, Florida Dental Association, Atlantic Coast District Dental Society, Fort Lauderdale Study Club, Psi Omega Dental Fraternity and National Women Dental Society. She has been selected as one of the “Top Dentists of America” by the Consumer’s Research Council Of America. She is a contributing writer and clinician, an expert consultant with New Beauty Magazine, and a dental examiner for the Florida Board of Dentistry since 2008.
One of her proudest moments as a dentist was when she exceeded the expectations of a patient who needed full-mouth reconstruction after a terrible accident. She is a compassionate and result-driven person with a “Yes I can!” attitude who designs healthy and beautiful smiles.
To this day, Dr. Horst takes pride in further advancing her dental education through numerous continued education classes. While her education and training are extensive and a source of confidence for her patients, they do not fully reveal the scope of her experience.
In her free time, she likes to paint art pieces, go paddle boarding, and spend time with her children, Megan and Ian.
