We are thrilled to welcome the newest addition to our clinical team, Dr. Kayla Bateman! She was born and raised in a suburb of Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. She attended the University of Notre Dame, where she received her Bachelor's degree in Biological Sciences and became an avid college football fan. Thereafter, she received her Doctorate of Dental Surgery at New York University, where she was a peer mentor, assistant professor, and was a two-time recipient of the Dean's Research Award. Following her NYU Doctorate, Dr. Bateman attended a General Practice Residency at Coler-Goldwater Specialty Hospital, which was focused on the treatment of medically compromised patients. Dr. Bateman then moved to Nevada, where she attended a three-year residency program to specialize in Orthodontics and Dentofacial Orthopedics at Roseman University of Health Sciences.


Dr. Kayla and her husband Josh are super excited to be part of the Fort Lauderdale family with their two little ones! Prior to joining the Benedetti Ortho team she was living with her family in Nevada and is ready to join us here in South Florida! In her spare time Dr. Kayla loves spending time with her family and friends, traveling with her little ones and watching Notre Dame football!
