We would not trust our son with any other dental facility. As parents we are at ease knowing that we can be in the room with our son while he is getting extractions. Thank you for all the excellent care.

Why did you become a optometrist?
I enjoy the preventative eye care field and I've practiced in very remote areas of Canada with the Indian Opulate for ten years. I've also worked in a USA military base in Germany for 5 years. I'm pleased and very fortunate to have this opportunity and know our little bosses are getting the best quality eye care.

Why did you become a dentist?
I became a dentist because I fell in love with dentistry. I had the opportunity to go to a dental summer enrichment program at the University of Houston during the summer of my junior year of college. I spent 6 weeks in Houston getting to know the faculty and the students at the dental school as they went through their day treating patients. My grandfather was a dentist in Mexico a long time ago so it was something that was always on my radar, but it was that summer that solidified my decision.

I came to the US when I was in 7th grade & had to learn english from scratch. I had a friend that was so nice to me, but for 6 months I did not understand a word she said to me yet she still sat with me during lunch. By 8th grade, thanks to my great english second language teacher and wonderful friend, I was already in regular english. I am fascinated with languages and I am currently trying to learn Latin. I love animals and nature and have to have at least 2 pets at a time. I currently have 4 dogs and one very old cat that has been with me since dental school.

Why did you become a orthodontist?
From a young age, I have always been a very artistic person. I have enjoyed drawing, painting, and even excelling in music being proficient in playing multiple instruments. I also did very well academically in school and my favorite courses were the sciences. I was drawn to dentistry because of the intimate connection it had to both the arts & the sciences. When i was a teenager, access to orthodontic treatment that my family could afford was not available to us. Once I started dental school I immediately took out extra student loan money to begin treatment since I could get it at a discount being a dental student. It was during that time when I was learning about dentistry, while seeing the changes my own orthodontic treatment was having on my bite, smile and aesthetics that I truly realized that I wanted to be able to bestow that transformation onto other people.

Why did you become a dentist?
I wanted to be a doctor that worked with my hands, but I didn't want to go to medical school so dentistry was the perfect mix of science, art, and people...with regular hours.
