Registered Dental Hygienist
Even before I began studying for my dental degree in Cuba, I had the passion and drive to help people improve their dental health. I feel that these are qualities I inherited from my father; he is also a dentist. In fact, I was born the day that he graduated from dental school. This inspired me throughout my studies and in years since. I became a dentist in 1985 and I worked in our town’s dental clinic for twelve years. Eventually I became the clinic’s supervisor and managed a team of five dentists and six dental assistants, working to improve dental health for those in need. My family and I moved to Miami in 1997 and this meant I could no longer practice as a dentist. In the beginning I worked as a dental assistant. I became a dental hygienist in 2001. I love working in Dr. Judy Mejido’s practice because here we have an exceptional team and patient care is our priority, always having more opportunities to learn and grow.
