When I went into private practice in 1990 after seven years of public health dentistry, I wanted to open a dental practice that would provide not only high-quality dental care, but also provide timely care, because Laredo has a reputation for making patients wait a very long time to receive care. I wanted to open up a place that emphasized customer service and really respected our patients' time, and over the years I've been blessed with a very good staff that has enabled me to achieve that, to reach our goals, and I think we're very well known, and very well respected in Laredo for having not only a high-quality practice, but also a practice that achieves a high level of customer service.
