 Dr. Nunez practiced in Ecuador for 10 years before moving to the United States where she attended New York University and received her degree in dentistry. With 30 years of experience, Dr. Nunez has dedicated her life to providing excellent dental services. By devoting her time to educate each patient, Dr. Nunez not only provides dental services, but also establishes a lasting bond with her patients. She is known for delivering her services with professionalism, kindness, experience and, most importantly, patience. This is why her patients cherish her not only as a dentist, but also as a friend.


She has been able to stay at the leading edge of the latest advances in the dental services and dental technology. With her years of experience, Dr. Nunez has noticed one of the major weaknesses of the industry: the lack of specialists in a dental office. There are dental practices where the general dentists have to perform everything - from dental cleaning to major surgery. In order to offer her patients the care they deserve, Dr. Nunez began assembling a team of specialists in 2008. A team that not only show the great qualities that Dr. Nunez is known for, but also share her philosophy of putting the patient first, not the treatment.
