Dr. Seanica Howe received her doctorate of dental surgery degree from the University of Missouri in Kansas City in 2000. She graduated with honors and was recognized for her academic excellence via membership in the prestigious Omicron Kappa Upsilon national dental honor society. While still attending dental school, she also held a teaching position in cell and molecular biology for incoming dental students and was a clinical teaching fellow at UMKC upon graduation. The following year, she entered her orthodontic residency at Nova Southeastern University and completed her certification in 2003.
Prior to establishing Howe Orthodontics in Key West, Dr. Howe owned, designed, and directed orthodontic practices in her home state of Missouri as well as in South Florida. Her love for esthetics and the art of orthodontics comes naturally and extends into her other interests as well.
While still maintaining an orthodontic practice in Miami, she trained in the fine arts at the Miami Art Institute where her early designs and drawings were recognized and displayed. In 2012, she received a master's degree in modern and contemporary art from the prestigious Christie's auction house in New York City. Dr. Howe has also worked as a freelance art writer and her series of articles based on the Art Basel fair in Basel, Switzerland, were published by the Miami New Times. She completed her first book, published by The Unbound Press, in 2021.
Dr. Howe's combination of training and talents in both the sciences and the arts are what make her an exceptional orthodontist, one whose eye for esthetics is reflected in the thousands of gorgeous smiles she has created over the course of her career. However, it's her compassion and commitment to her patients that makes her who she is...a woman committed to community, excellence, and purpose.

Just like Grecia, Hayley was brought to the island by her husband who is in the U.S. Coast Guard. She's a born and raised New Yorker - specifically Long Island - so she is no stranger to being surrounded by the water.
