Hello, my name is Cristina Perez. I’m the middle child of the family and I like to brag that I’m my fathers favorite. I’m married to my high school sweetheart and we have a beautiful daughter named Citlalli.

Always eager for growth and professional development, I obtained my first supervisory position in 2005. Patient care has always been my number one priority. Making sure a trusting environment is created by understanding the patients needs, answering all questions and ultimately becoming a Dental Home for all of our patients, is our daily goal.

Claudia Martinez

My name is Claudia Martinez. I was born in Colombia and raised in St. Louis,MO. After High School, I moved to Irvine, CA and completed 2 years of Hotel and Tourism administration. Single mother to an 11 year old daughter whose goal is to become a Dentist. 

My career path changed by fate and great mentors that saw potential in me to achieve bigger things by sharing my passion to put a smile on everyone that crosses my path. I started working in dentistry in 2000 and have not looked back. 

My heart is full with every patient I get the chance to help achieve a healthy and confident smile. The gratitude our patient have when they leave the office after a possitive experience, I measure it by the size of the big smile they give us on their way out. 

Outside of work, I enjoy traveling and getting my child exposed to many diferent cultures and involved in community service, specially any charity that involves kids fighting cancer
