Fort Myers Dental Hygienist

Sal’s motivation to pursue a career in dental hygiene is deeply personal and inspiring. Born in Guatemala, Sal grew up witnessing significant access barriers to dental care.

A dream I never knew I’d end up fulfilling, but also work in making that a reality for others.” This profound connection to his roots and personal experiences drives Sal to excel in his field and help others achieve the dental care they deserve.

Dedication to being better every day is not just a personal mantra for Sal, but a professional commitment reflected in his work and interactions with patients. Patients consistently describe Sal as an excellent hygienist who is knowledgeable, thorough, warm, friendly, and possesses a great personality. These qualities make each visit a pleasant and reassuring experience, as Sal prioritizes patient comfort and satisfaction.
