I was born and raised a single child to a single immigrant mother. I grew up in the Washington Heights section of NYC, which exposed me to my Dominican culture. I recently married my first childhood boyfriend and together we have two beautiful children. I bring an organized, detail-oriented approach to dentistry that places patients as the priority and means it is rare for anything to fall through the cracks.
I started my first job in a Dental office while in college and developed into an Office Manager. I love what I do for a living just as much as I did the first day I started. I am motivated by the relationships I’ve built with these patients and by our team that makes me laugh and enjoy what I do on a daily basis. I enjoy the challenges I face as a manager because they allow me to learn something new every day.
Through the years I have put a lot effort into completing continuing education courses. Coming into this practice I’ve brought this wealth of knowledge to the team. What’s best is that I am surrounded by a group of people who are eager to implement the new things they learn from me and we have fun while we do!
Outside the Office: Spending time with my family.
Hero: My mother is the smartest person I know, her genes have trickled down to me and my children.
Bucket List Item: I would love to one day be able to go back to school and enroll in a dental program.
Spirit Animal: The dolphin. They are empathetic, charismatic, and always willing to lend a helping hand.
I was born and raised in Upper Manhattan, Inwood, by the best grandmother in the world. I come from a small family but have two brothers and two sisters. I have two pets, a Blue Nose Pitbull named Blue and my new baby, Benji (Toy Yorkie).
I chose dentistry after joining an unpaid internship one summer and immediately fell in love. I realized right away that dental education in America is poor, and it is the utmost importance to be able to educate all patients; because you only get one set of permanent teeth in your life.
As I was hired, I began to learn more about the different specialties from Endodontics, Oral Surgery, and Periodontics. I am a lover of education, and dentistry is a field that will only continue to grow over time as society progresses with technology. I happen to be lucky and have nice teeth, but I love helping others feel the same way I do about my smile.
The best part of my job is changing the lives of patients through education and treatment. I love helping people, and in dentistry, you can help a lot of people that are in pain. The aspect of my personality that I feel adds the most value to the office is my bubbly personality. Patients always comment on how happy I am when they come in. I love building relationships with patients.
Outside the Office: I like to travel as much as possible and experience new cultures. Again, I love learning not only professionally but also personally. I also spend a lot of time with my babies, Benji and Blue, since I work so much throughout the week.
Hero: My hero is Michelle Obama because I can relate to her, I can see myself in her. She inspires me because she grew up like me, she is a minority like me, and she got to where she is in life all based on her hard work. Growing up, there were not many role models that were minorities, beautiful, and grew up poor but still persevered. Despite the criticism, she remains graceful and positive. I strive to emulate those features as much as possible.
Bucket List Item: I would like to swim with whales. I love the ocean, and I think I was a shark in a past life.

I am married with two beautiful girls. Originally, I’m from the Dominican Republic where my love for dentistry started. My aunt was a dentist in D.R. and she instilled in me the love of dentistry and how seeing a GREAT dentist could change a person’s life.
Therefore, I started my dental career back home where I received a doctorate in Dental Science. I was lucky enough to establish my own practice and treat patients from all walks of life and all financial backgrounds. I often participated in missions where we would go to underserved parts of the country to provide dental work free of charge. I did this for 30 years and then moved to the U.S.
I enjoy seeing the transformation from when a patient walks through the door looking for solutions to seeing their happiness after receiving the type of dental work that we render. I appreciate how our doctors listen to my recommendations and treat me as a professional.
I have a knack for relating to both doctor and patient, which promotes harmony and organization in our office.
Outside of the Office: I like to travel, go to water parks, and play baseball.
Hero: My mother. She is one of the strongest people I know and always supports me as I pursue my goals and aspirations.
Bucket List Item: To overcome my fear of heights and skydive.
Spirit Animal: A Lioness. I am fierce, make the rules, and a leader!
HEAD DENTAL ASSISTANT
Growing up in the Dominican Republic I had the best experience with my dentist. Since I was very young I was intrigued by everything she did and how fun my visits were. That’s what made me pursue dentistry in the first place. I achieved my Associate Degree in Applied Science Dental Hygiene while working at the front desk and as a dental assistant too.
I am the daughter of two of the most wonderful and caring people in the world. I am married to a wonderful man and have a little girl whom I adore.
I love taking care of people in a warm and caring atmosphere where their comfort is the main concern. That’s what I work for, and what drives me to be better. I strive to provide a top-quality service focused on educating patients about the importance of oral health. I use my eye for detail and integrity to offer honest, gentle care to all my patients. I also place an emphasis on patient safety by providing a clean working environment.
It is so rewarding when a patient is satisfied with their care as you develop a personal attachment over time. I also enjoy working with our team – we have a good workflow where patients are the priority.
Outside the Office: I love going to the movies, dancing, and family gatherings. Christmas movies are my weakness, I could watch them all year long. Most of all, I love spending time with my husband and little girl.
Hero: My grandmother. She passed away two years ago, and up to this day, there is not a decision I make in my life that does not involve reflecting on what she would do if it were her.
Bucket List Item: I fulfilled it when I became a mother.
Spirit Animal: A butterfly. I believe that transformation is powerful. It gives us the ability to examine ourselves constantly, look at different perspectives and decide if a change is necessary to find joy within ourselves.
Our team is rich with culture and an array of languages, which allows us to welcome patients of many backgrounds. Everyone who walks into our office is treated as a VIP and made to feel comfortable. You deserve only the best and we strive to provide it for you!
