“To me dentistry is a combination of Art and Medicine. I’ve always enjoyed making art and healing people. I care about my patients as if they were my family. My mission and goal for each day is to be attentive and considerate to my patients; listening to their concerns, establishing a bond with each of them and providing the best possible care I can provide. I want them to feel comfortable during their dental visits and for them to see me as their advocate and healer.”
Dr. Alvarez’s hobbies are hiking to places with breathtaking views, visiting new cultures and countries, dancing, painting and drawing, learning more about dentistry and medicine, spending time with family, reading books about consciousness and spiritual growth, and going to the beach!
The last two awards she received were given by the American Association of Public health Dentistry for her outstanding achievement in Public Health Dentistry and by Delta Dental for her outstanding leadership skills, public service commitment and outstanding service in the field of dentistry.
“Because a smile is the prettiest and most powerful thing you can wear, and your smile could change someone else’s day, I ask that you do not to let anything prevent you from smiling. There are always reasons to smile” – Dr. Alvarez
