I am a General Dental Practitioner from Colombia (South America). I got my Bachelors Dental Degree in 2006.

First came to the UK 6 years ago to visit some friends, improve my English and travel the continent but after few months found myself totally in love with the country, specially London, and decided to stay.

I love dentistry and delivering high quality dental care to my patients in a relaxed and nice environment is my main goal.
