General Info

About me

I became an Orthodontist because ever since I was a child I have wanted to help others plus I have always had great hand dexterity. When I was a young boy, I had a noticeable facial deformity (large maxilla and protruding teeth) and an excellent orthodontist corrected my problem, helping improve my self-esteem. Since then, I’ve had the predisposition to study orthodontics so that I could help other people. The best part of my job is when we complete a dental treatment and our patients show us their gratitude with a very large smile. This is a very rewarding experience.

I also enjoy teaching to share some of the knowledge that I’ve gained and to help instill values in my students. I like teaching because I can transmit to younger generations the value of honesty, integrity, service and responsibility and also help create outstanding professionals in healthcare.
