Lis was born in El Salvador, but grew up in Los Angeles, California. At 12 years old she had a bad dental experience and encountered a dental assistant that helped calm her anxiety. That experience motivated her to get into the dental field to help people. She attended Pasadena City College and graduated as a dental assistant in 2001. Her love and passion for dentistry is her motivation to give you the best dental visit possible. She has been living in Florida since 2003 where she met her husband.

She is a dental nerd and quite proud to admit it!
