Meet Our Dental Assistant Team Leader, Juliana Silva ADiverse Career inDentistry

Fortunately, I absolutely love to travel and do so as often as I can. In fact, I recently returned from a trip to Europe, where I visited Spain, France, and Italy. Every country and every city offers something special. I love to meet new people, learn about the different cultures, and try new foods.

I’ve been in the dentistry field for the last 20 years,

so one would assume I wouldn’t have much left to learn. Of course, that’s not true at all. That’s the amazing thing about working at Your Oviedo Dentist with Dr. Lopez. I’m always learning something new.

As much as I love to travel, I’m always excited to return home to my dog, Becca. She’s a terrier mix, and she’s 16 years old.

I love being a part of this great team. Since joining in 2009, they have become like family to me.

Many years ago, I was a dentist in my home country of Colombia. After graduating from dental school, I started practicing dentistry in 1998. Over the past 20 years, I’ve worked in many dentistry roles, and I have learned so much from those experiences. After working in Colombia, I decided to make the move to the United States, where I continued to work as a dentist. Though there are different standards, I was able to find a role that I loved. Today, I am the dental assistant team leader with Your Oviedo Dentist. As the team leader, I am here to support my team and help them succeed. Dental assistants provide the support that keeps everything running smoothly for patients, hygienists, and doctors. I love being a part of this great team. Since joining in 2009, they have become like family to me. Many of my closest relationships have been formed in the workplace. I do travel back to my home countrywhen I can. I love to visit my family and especially my sister and her daughter. My niece, who is 2½, is myworld.

She’s getting up there in years! I adopted her 13 years ago, so you could saywe’ve been through many adventures together.

Even in dentistry, I’ve had many adventures. My role has changed over the years, but every one of those years has been great. Working in dentistry gives me the opportunity to change lives and help people. Good dental health promotes overall health. Dentistry is important for every community. Whether they come in for cosmetic, restorative, or preventative dentistry, they all leave with a healthier, happier smile. –Juliana Silva
