Maria I. Artiles
Registered Dental Hygienist
Believe it or not, I decided to be a dentist at the age of 10. I had an accident that fractured teeth, therefore, having my first experience at the dentist. The doctor inspired me to become what I am today. At 22, I finished dental school in Cuba, and worked 14 years, but due to the lack of opportunities in my country I left and came to the U.S. After obtaining my Dental Hygienist License, there was struggle for me to find a practice that would allow me to adjust easily with my living principles and work style. I thank God for putting Dr. Mejido and her practice in my way. The team here at A1 Care, offers the same treatment that the doctor whom inspired me offered, with such delicacy and professionalism to make a difference in people’s lives.
