Our Team

Dr. Misael and Dr. Lindsey spent months interviewing potential candidates for their front and back office staff. It was a long process, but one they were happy to undertake because they had only one thought in mind: a positive experience for their patients, from the first phone call to the final follow-up. The doctors were looking for compassionate staffers who understand what a visit to the dentist means to people. They wanted a front desk staff that were friendly and flexible and dental hygienists and assistants who were knowledgeable and experienced in all aspects of dental care. The Oteros believe they have found exactly the right people to compliment the staff. This outstanding team of care providers pledges to treat everyone with professionalism, friendliness, and respect. We pride ourselves in being family dentists. Together, patients can be assured their oral health care experience at Otero Family, Cosmetic and Implant Dentistry will be second to none.
