I am passionate about my work, as being a pediatric dentist gives me the opportunity to treat children with the best attention they deserve. My goal is to make each child’s visit to the dentist a positive experience and to develop a trusting relationship between myself, my patients, and their parents. The most rewarding aspect of my job is seeing all the wonderful little smiles on my patients’ faces!
Education and Experience
I received my Doctorate of Dental Surgery from Santa Maria University, in Caracas, Venezuela in 2005. During my last year of dental school, I had the opportunity to offer my services as a dentist to a native Indian community at the center of a plain in a remote area called Wonken in Venezuala’s Gran Sabana. It was a true privilege helping the underserved children of that community and that experience helped me realize my love for pediatric dentistry. I decided to continue my education with two years of specialized training in pediatric dentistry at the University of Medicine and Dentistry of New Jersey.
Outside the Office
I grew up in Caracas, Venezuela, and now live in Hollywood, FL. I love animals and have a cat named Neo. During my time away from work I enjoy going to the gym, watching movies, visiting my family, and going to the beach. My favorite soccer team to cheer on is the Barcelona Football Club. I am fluent in both English and Spanish.
The work that I appreciate the most is the one with which I will be able to give something back to society. What better to give than the gift of health? I have volunteered my time at Miami Children’s Hospital, at the Dental Clinic, and for the Special Olympics.
