Meet Dr. Carina

Carina Perez-Cisneros, DMD, MSD, is excited to get to know patients and help them gain confidence and happiness in their smiles. She’s on a mission to transform lives, one smile at a time. “A smile is a way of communication — it is a way of projecting,” she says. “It always amazes me how a beautiful smile impacts other people and how a nice smile increases the confidence of the person who wears it.”

She is thrilled to be part of an exciting time in her patients’ lives. She loves to treat the patients integrally and to see how their confidence transforms through the process of orthodontics. Dr. Perez-Cisneros considers it a privilege to take care of her patients and know that they trust her with their health.
