Patient story

 

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.

   Languages: Dr. Benji Arias speaks Spanish as his native language and Speaks English at a conversational level. 

Favorites: He is an easy going person. He loves movies, books and music just as much as the next person. He loves The Christopher Nolan batman movies especially Dark Knight and has read the book Sapiens more often than he can remember. He is also partial to the music of Jason Mraz and John Mayer. 

Studies: He graduated from De la Salle Bajio University with a diploma in General dentistry. 

Personal Bio: He loves patients that come from very far away. If they make a 6+ trip to our clinic to seek out quality treatment at an affordable price, he sees that as the sign of a person who really desires good quality dental assistance. This gives Dr. Benjamin pride in the work that we does here at the clinic.

Dra. Paula León

Restorative Dentist
 

My name is Paula Joselin León Linares. I graduated from the Universidad Veracruzana in 2019 with a degree in Dental Surgery. The specialty that I like the most is Prosthodontist, Rehabilitation and Aesthetics. In October, I start a diploma in Rehabilitation. The important thing is to never stop learning.

My English level is good, but not perfect. I understand perfectly, but I am still learning to make it conversational.

 

The best thing I can get from patients is a "Thank you, I feel very different now, I like it". So giving back reassurance, satisfaction and confidence to a patient is the best thing we can offer them. Without a doubt, always speaking to them honestly will create that bond of mutual trust.

 

An anecdote I remember when I performed my first total prosthesis, the doctor who had to check the prosthesis, brought food to confirm that the patient could chew properly, including bread, cookies and peanuts. Then I told my patient to choose bread and if she needed adjustment for any discomfort, there was no problem, but the important thing was to pass the material. When the doctor passed the patient chose the hardest thing, "peanuts" and I was more worried than ever.

Fortunately, all the work was done correctly, and the patient never had any discomfort.

Another time at the university, we frequently saw low-income patients. I offered to pay for the entire treatment for a patient who I knew needed it. At the end of her treatment, her way of saying thank you was with a large bag of tangerines. So I know that sometimes being thankful can come in many, many ways, you just have to find a way.

 

My favorite movie is Harry Potter, and I like to listen to English Pop.
