This training allows her to provide her patients with the most up-to-date cosmetic dentistry services.

Dr. Vargas-Velasco believes that patients are more than just names on a medical chart. She understands that each patient has unique needs and concerns, and each patient deserves a dentist who will provide plenty of one-on-one time during appointments.
