I love dentistry because it is challenging and interesting to see the transformation of smiles and the satisfaction of patients especially after they see the final results. As a funny, compassionate, curious, and organized person, I strive to exceed patients’ expectations as I believe that patients are the single most important asset a dental office can have.

Coming to the dentist can be scary and overwhelming. After being in the dental field for about 6 years, I feel that I provide excellent patient care and understanding as I love to treat every patient as if they were one of my own family members. A passion of mine is to educate patients on the importance of oral health.

I have been in the dental field for 18 years now and I have recently moved from Chicago to Arizona. I am super friendly and outgoing and love dentistry because I find it to be an art. Part of my position is to get to make patients' temporary crowns and be apart of their transformation process.

I love dentistry because I get to interact with patients while taking X-Rays. It's the reaction to their teeth transformation that really brings me joy. I am passionate about educating patients on how to care for their teeth because it is the key to good oral health. Currently, I am continuing my education to become a hygienist.

He’s taught me so much such as focusing on what I want and to never settle for less. He is a great and caring person as he strives to give his patients the best quality service. One thing about him is that he walks into work every morning with a smile on his face. Working for him is such an honor. Dr. Zapata loves his career and I love what I do.
