Maria is originally from Seville, a beautiful city in the south of Spain. She graduated as a Dentist in her hometown. After graduating, Maria wanted to achieve one of her lifelong ambitions, which was to travel and experience life and culture in a different country. Since her arrival in 2007, she has been working in Primary Care dentistry, allowing her to utilise her dental skills to deliver high standards of dental treatment to a variety of different patients.
During the past few years, Maria hasn’t stopped learning and improving her knowledge in the field of dentistry, and her main interests is Orthodontics as well as Oral Surgery. She achieved a Postgraduate Certificate in Orthodontics and worked voluntarily with Mercy Ships (a non-profit organisation that does charitable work) in Sierra Leone. Maria says she found this experience ‘very challenging yet rewarding at the same time.'
Maria likes to travel along with meeting different people and sharing their culture. She loves learning new languages and is proud to say that she can talk perfect Spanish, English (with an accent!) as well as intermediate French. Outside of dentistry, Maria enjoys physical activities such as Yoga, trekking in the countryside, along with cycling. She also has a passion for cooking.
Maria considers herself to be very patient, considerate, empathetic and a good communicator, qualities, which she believes are vital for patient care.
