Meet Our Team
We provide high quality and outstanding service, in a relaxing and friendly environment.
Our patients’ lifetime health is our top priority.
I was born in Lima, Peru. A land known for its amazing food and of course Machupicchu, one of the seven wonders of the world. I attended Cayetano Heredia Peruvian University, where I graduated in 2000. After gaining my DDS degree, I decided to move to the United States for special training at the Advanced Education in General Dentistry Program (AEGD) at the University of Connecticut. During my time there, I completed a two year residency, followed by a one year fellowship. After that, I was offered a position as a Clinical Instructor for the AEGD program which I held for one year. I have since been practicing in the Northern Virginia area since 2010.
I was able to make my dream come true: to operate my own dental practice and apply all the knowledge and experience I acquired in my previous years. My desire to renovate smiles with the highest quality and innovative treatments became reality at RenovaSmiles; which continues to grow and expand thanks to great staff support and the amazing patients who have become a part of our family.
Personal facts about me:
I love spending time with my my wife (most famous for being my partner in “crime”) Dr. Eliana Cuellar, and my lovely (and terrible) kids: Nicholas, Ian and Ivana. I also possess a secret skill most of my friends and family love: I am a great cook! In fact, this is why my wife fell in love with me and why everyone loves spending time at my home.
I was born and raised in the beautiful land of Lima, Peru. I attended Cayetano Heredia Peruvian University, where I received my DDS degree in 2005. After practicing for two years, my husband, Dr. Anderson, decided to move to the United states… but since he was going to miss me very much, he took me with him. Here in the U.S., I furthered my education by participating in a two year Advanced Education in General Dentistry (AEGD) program at the University of Connecticut.
I work very hard on the growth of our RenovaSmiles practices and constantly strive to improve all aspects of our offices. I know that this growth will benefit my family, staff, and of course our patients who have benefited from a renovated infrastructure, state of the art equipment, and the wide variety of treatments and innovative techniques we perform on a daily basis. My time at RenovaSmiles is combined with another position as the dental director of the Greater Prince William Community Health Center. Having always paid special attention to underserved communities, both abroad and domestic, I feel a need to give back not just through private practice, but also community engagement.
Personal facts about me:
I love spending time with my family and friends. Raising three children is probably the toughest job one can have; but of course, it is also the most rewarding experience! I love coming home from work and seeing three super happy “little monsters” because their mommy has just arrived. One of my favorite hobbies is eating the delicious food my husband cooks… but he cannot complain, because I help him by making delicious desserts! I love baking all types of tasty treats, especially for my children.
I was born in Caracas, Venezuela before moving to the U.S and settling in Richmond, Va. I completed my undergraduate studies in Biology from James Madison University’s Honors College in 2013 and received my DDS degree from the world’s first dental school, the University of Maryland School of Dentistry in 2017. During my training, I gained a special appreciation for helping communities through dental care by participating in various Mission of Mercy projects serving local underserved populations as well as internationally in Central America through a partnership with Medical Ministry International.
It is an honor and privilege to join a profession I love and one which gives me the ability to restore not only smiles, but self-confidence in so many individuals. I am always trying to learn the newest techniques and innovations in my field through continuing education courses. At RenovaSmiles, I work hand in hand with the entire team; from the front desk to hygienist and assistants, to provide individualized care and attention to your oral health care needs.
Personal facts about me:
During my free time, I enjoy staying active through local recreation leagues; playing anything from flag football, kickball, and the occasional tennis match. I love spending time with my family and always look forward to the next big reunion with my childhood friends. I am an avid lover of travel and enjoy visiting and getting to know other cultures, especially when it comes to the food!
