Dr. Andrea Diaz was born and raised in Guatemala, and at a young age she journeyed to the United States to follow her passion in Dentistry. She studied undergrad at University of Colorado in Colorado Springs, where she graduated cum laude with her Bachelor of Science in Biology. She went on to receive her dental degree from Southern Illinois University School of Dental Medicine. Soon after, she became a dental technician, and then a medical interpreter at Memorial Hospital Colorado Springs.
Her desire to help those who can’t afford dental care proved crucial to medical practices in developing countries and inspired her to embark upon a 10-day mission trip for two consecutive years to her homeland of Guatemala.
Dentistry is Dr. Andrea Diaz’s passion because of the challenges it brings, and because it gives her the opportunity to be involved in the well-being of the community while giving every man, woman, and child the beautiful smile they deserve.
