Healthy & Confident Smiles
Meet the doctor
Hi, my name is David!
I'm a pediatric dentist, living in Delaware, I am married to a Costa Rican girl, I have 3 wild kids, 2 mischievous dogs and I love COFFEE.
It's a beautiful thing when your career and your passion come together, and that's precisely me.
I have a specialist training in providing comprehensive dental care to all children, including kids with special needs, by using traditional behavior management. This hits close to home because one of my boys is in the Spectrum.
I was born in Mexico, but grew up in Los Angeles, I completed my Doctorate degree from Tufts University School of Dental Medicine in 2009 in Boston, Massachusetts. It was during this time that I volunteered in the pediatric department and realized that I LOVE working with children!
So, I went back to LA and concluded a 2-year postdoctoral training in Pediatric dentistry at UCLA (2011). I practiced in South Texas on the border of the US and Mexico, strengthening my dental skills in underserved areas for 7 years.
Fate and good luck brought me to Delaware, where it was a humbling surprise to find out that you can find many pockets of undeserved areas throughout the state.
My family was starting to grow, and I started to look for a well-rounded family atmosphere where my 10 years of skills and experience can be put to good use. That's the reason I'm here today!
As a parent, I understand how hard it is to find a trusting dental provider.
And as a dentist, I love being able to gain the trust of my patients, one visit at a time, transforming their dental anxieties into confident and healthy smiles.
Seeing a happy and confident patient after my treatments is always rewarding and satisfying.
Because the only way to do great work, is to love what you do… and I'm definitely passionate about my job!
So, when you don't find me in the clinic, you'll find me at a park, on a playground, in a comic bookshop or at a café!
