Meet Dr. Patricia Mendez


“Children are my kryptonite. I love building relationships and connecting with patients: I always care for each child as if she or he were my own. Every child, and every parent, soon learns that I’m willing, able, and honestly want to go the extra mile to make sure everyone has a healthy, wonderful smile.” – Dr. Mendez

Dr. Mendez is passionate about establishing a relationship with her patients at an early age to 18 years old, to educate them on the importance of oral health. Having that type of impact is so rewarding. Her goal is to create a fun, safe, comfortable, and warm environment to provide her patients with a pleasant experience. For Dr. Mendez, every day is a new adventure full of love.
