I was born in Mexico, and I speak Spanish. And so once I became a dentist, I really honed in on that opportunity to serve the Hispanic population. I went to dental school at the University of Buffalo, but I decided to come back to Tampa to go ahead and practice where I was raised. I think the main thing why I joined Tampa Dental Wellness was because of the leadership, particularly Dr. Creech. She's just a very great mentor to us, and she is a good leader. Another great thing about the practice that really drew me to join was the fact that it is an all-women practice, so it just makes it very comfortable for patients to be around that type of environment. The best part about being a dentist is really the ability to help people, and I know that that sounds like a very cliche to say but it definitely is true. At the end of the day, when I go home, I can rest at night and I know that I've made a difference and that's what I like best about what I do. When I see the patient and if you are ever in my chair, you'll probably hear me say this because it's true. I want them to feel that they're my family. So if you're in the chair, you're my aunt, you're my uncle, you're my mother. And that's really the feeling that I want to explain to them and I want them to feel that they can be comfortable because I do really treat you like you're my family.
