Dr. Florian has the best memory of all of our doctors, if we have any doubts about a patient all we have to do is ask him, and he can tell us who they are and what he remembers they came in for.
He told me (the interviewer) of his first patient here at the clinic. At the time he didn’t speak the little English he does now. (at least now he can understand most of what patients tell him).
Back then he worked with Dr. Norma Arias, she would tell the patients what he was going to do after she worked on them. But one day she told him that if she kept telling them for him he would never learn.
So the next day it took him almost 2 hours to do a job that nowadays takes him a little over 30 minutes. All because he was having so much trouble explaining what he was going to do. Since that day Dr Florian will not let a little something like a language stop him from making sure that his patients understand what he is going to do for them.
He also told me of a Particular patient that made his job quite difficult. Difficult jobs are not out of the ordinary, there are always challenges that need to be concurred when it comes to oral health. This patient wanted a beautiful smile, but he had a problem, a very strong bite that would make it nearly impossible to have a prosthetic placed and be secure. But Dr. Florian did not run away from the challenge, he stood up to it and to this day that patient has an amazing pair of dentures that will last him for years to come, all due to how well Dr. Florian worked to rehabilitate his bite.

Studies: Dr. Ibarra graduated from Universidad Autonoma de Baja California (UABC) in 1993 with a license in Dentistry.
From that day Dr. Ibarra knew that a clinical revision needed to be done very carefully and very meticulously. She never wanted to make a mistake like that again and vowed to make sure that every patient she saw got a thorough revision before anything started.
The day came and the man arrived. The teaching doctor gave the patient a quick look over and to the embarrassment of the two learning doctors, he pulled out a very dirty and not well cared for, dental bridge. They were not his natural teeth and thus they had not done the assignment correctly.
For her last semester, the teaching doctor asked them to bring in a patient who had a lot of problems with their teeth. Dr Ibarra and her lab partner made several house calls until they found a man who had very dirty teeth and seemed like a perfect candidate. They performed a quick evaluation of his teeth and gave him the invitation to be the subject of their final laboratory project.
This story is not from when she was a practicing dentist, but from when she was a student.
