Originally from Panama, moved to the United States 7 years ago making Florida my new home. Just started my career in Dentistry as a Dental Assistant with Expanded Functions (EFDA). I came to Precision as an intern but I came here to stay. I love what I do, love working with new patients and getting to know them. Dentistry is a very private practice and there’s nothing better than a welcoming, warm, and friendly face when you are the patient. I pride myself on giving 100% of me on everything I do to the best of my capabilities. I speak fluent Spanish and English and I’m still learning some Portuguese.
