I was born and raised in beautiful Colombia. At the age of 20, I had an opportunity to start a new life in the United States. This transition was scary at times but incredibly rewarding. I am very proud of both my US citizenship and my Colombian heritage.
I am one of the lucky few who knew early on that I wanted to pursue a career in dentistry. As an undergraduate at UNLV in Las Vegas, NV I was accepted into a fast track dental program where I simultaneously completed both my Bachelors degree in Biology and my first year of dental school at the University of Nevada, Las Vegas School of Dental Medicine. I enjoyed my four years of dental training at UNLV SDM and following graduation, successfully completed my regional board examination.
While practicing in Las Vegas I met and married my husband and we decided it was time for an adventure! After visiting Dallas we had fallen in love with the city and decided to move here in the summer of 2018. We truly love both Dallas and the kind people of this city!
As a practicing dentist, I understand dental education does not stop at graduation. I continue to be an active learner attending many continuing education courses on new techniques and philosophies in dentistry to better the lives of my patients. I am currently a member of the Spear Study Club, a well-respected organization and a leader in post graduate dental education in the dental sphere today. Within this group, colleagues come together to collaborate, learn, and improve patient care on a monthly basis.
When I’m not practicing dentistry, I enjoy outdoor activities like hiking and running. I am also an avid photographer and am learning the art of dental photography. And who doesn’t like food… I am constantly on the lookout for authentic South American food! If you know a great restaurant please let me know! I also love spending time with my husband and our two rescue cats, Fluffy and Baby. Finally, I am a people person and love to get to know everyone I meet. I can’t wait to meet you and see how I can make a difference in your life!
