“Part of what inspires me as a doctor is to be able to interact with my patients. I like to listen to them and assist them in what they need, especially if they are adults or seniors. These 30 years of experience have given me the ability to treat various ailments and patience to humanely attend to my patients. “– Dr. Martha Georgina Fonseca López

The patients, attended by the doctor, are adults or the elderly mostly. Mainly, they come to the office for a dental prosthesis, which can be removable or fixed depending on the needs of the patient.

In addition, the dentist instructs them on how to apply a good dental cleaning, which is essential in these cases.
