The doctor was born and raised in Nogales has strong ties to the community and remains very close to his parents and brothers.
My interest in dentistry began in my teens when I was doing my orthodontic treatment with Dr. Francisco Vazquez. As a curious teen, I became very interested in the all instruments, equipment, apparatus, etc., that they used during my appointments.
I continually asked to Dr. Vazquez, for information about each instrument part and all the material. My interested was in my treatment because I was starting to notice big improvements in my teeth and then it grew to an interest in the dental profession.
During my “Pre-Professional Practice” 4 semester, 150 hour course at Fray Pedro de Ghent I worked as an assistant to Dr. Vazquez at Laser Tech. This experience and educational course helped me decide to study the profession of dentistry and to practice dentistry.
When I finished my preparatory studies, I enrolled at the Universidad del Valle de Mexico Campus Hermosillo. This experience included great workshops, materials with excellent teachers and a great academic level.

No pain, no drilling and the cavity is gone!
The Ozone treatment equipment has proven itself effective in dramatically reducing the need for root canals by quickly healing the infection, rejuvenating the root and the damaged jaw bone. The treatment works within a few days to a few weeks to promote healing and eliminating the infections.

This is revolutionary, but it has been done in Germany for years and in this clinic.
