Meet Dr. Rita Hurst

“Orthodontics is the greatest profession in the world. I couldn’t imagine doing anything else! I use my education and hands-on training to the best of my abilities to give patients the best results possible. I do whatever it takes to make my patients completely happy with their treatment, and I always strive to achieve perfection.”

Education & Experience

Affiliations & Organizations

Continuing education is the best way I can ensure my patients receive the most effective care. I keep up to date on the newest technologies, including Invisalign®, Damon® Smile, and Insignia™, throughout the year. I am also a member of several professional associations that gives me the chance to share ideas with other dental and orthodontic professionals.

Awards & Recognition

During my years in dental and orthodontic school, I was honored to receive numerous awards, including admission into the Phi Delta Honor Society, the Delphi Society, and the Omicron Kappa Upsilon Honor Society. I was also awarded the Outstanding Leadership and Academic Excellence Award by the American Association of Women Dentists.


The Office

I am a native of St. Petersburg, and have lived in Seminole since 2006. My husband Gabriel and I have two children, George and Dominique. When I’m not in the office, I can be found spending time with my family and traveling.
