"I tell my team every day that we are so blessed to be in a profession that gives back so much. As unique and challenging as the healthcare industry is, I receive so much gratification in helping others alleviate pain and live a healthier lifestyle.
It's not surprising how many people are afraid of dentistry, and it's always due to a bad experience. Unfortunately, it's the patient who continues with pain and deteriorating overall health. Our goal is to help patients by listening to their individual needs and educating them to take control of their condition. So little by little, they can live a higher quality of life...and maintain it!
And if i'm lucky, they'll teach someone else how to achieve that same health and happiness. A little patience, empathy, and encouragement go a very long way in an otherwise scary situation.

Dr. Cesar E Sanchez began his journey of dentistry when he was a child. Growing up in an atmosphere of family dental physicians, he developed a gentle, compassionate and caring attention to his patients. He decided to study dentistry internationally and earned his first dental license in Universidad De La Salle in 2012. He continued his dental education and received his Doctor of Dental Surgery degree from the University De La Salle in July of 2013.
