Even before I started studying for my dental degree in Cuba, I had the passion and drive to help people improve their dental health. These are qualities I inherited from my father; he is also a dentist. In fact, I was born on the day he graduated from dental school. I became a dentist in 1985 and worked at a clinic for 12 years before arriving in Miami in 1997, where I began working as a dental assistant before becoming a dental hygienist in 2001. I love working in this practice because we have an exceptional team, there are always opportunities to grow and patient care is our top priority.
