Originally from Bogotá, Colombia, I developed my passion for orthodontics from anthropological studies of indigenous tribes in the Colombian Amazon. I have a dual degree from the Military University in Colombia and the University of the Pacific in San Francisco and have been practicing Orthodontics since 1997.
