Davina Prida, D.D.S.

Dr. Davina Prida has always had a passion for design. After high school, she set her sights on design school in New York with dreams of becoming a designer. Today, Dr. Prida works as a designer—but not in the way she originally planned. As a general and cosmetic dentist, Dr. Prida’s new passion is to design smile makeovers using dental crowns, veneers, dental implants, and bridges.

Dr. Prida has practiced in the Dallas area for more than two decades and is now the sole practitioner at Inwood Village Dental, where she and her highly experienced staff provide the full scope of general and cosmetic dentistry are dedicated to patient care and comfort using the latest dental technologies. Dr. Prida’s approach to smile makeovers sets her apart. “There is another mid-step I do that most other cosmetic dentists don’t offer. I sculpt the new smile on patients with temporaries, then do a 3D scan that is sent to the lab for final fabrication,” she says. “Sculpting the design on the teeth is an added step that elevates the beauty of the patient’s natural smile.”

Dr. Prida says this additional step stemmed from her frustration with the lack of customization options in cosmetic dentistry. This limited her ability to create a natural-looking smiles. “When I started sculpting the design myself on the patients, every aspect became exact,” she says. “Having an artistic eye to elevate the aesthetic makes a difference. My goal is to maintain the personality of the smile, just elevate the appearance. I love the cosmetic aspect of my practice. Cosmetic dentistry can take at least 10 years off one’s appearance. It is so exciting to see my patients smile more and become confident.”

Practicing at Inwood Village Dental allows Dr. Prida to be active in the community where she lives and raised her children. A military veteran, she also donates dental care services to and is a member of the Texas Army National Guard. She is a graduate of Baylor College of Dentistry and a member of the American Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry.
