Jose has been a staple at Smile Design Dental since its establishment in 2010 and has greeted every patient who walks through with a warm smile.

Javier believes it is important to make sure every patient feels comfortable and leaves happy.
When Jose is not working hard he is an avid food enthusiast. He is known to have a sweet tooth which he finds ironic because he works in a dental office. He likes to try all different kinds of foods and enjoys exploring the different kinds of foods that each culture has to offer.
