Meet Dr. Trevino
Dr. Trevino grew up in the Caribbean island nation of Trinidad & Tobago. Her father was a notable medical doctor there and she grew up with his example of the kind of fulfillment that comes from treating patients' needs and promoting their health. Dr. Trevino came to the US for higher education and received her Bachelor of Arts degree from Loma Linda University, La Sierra Campus (now called La Sierra University), and later, earned her Doctor of Dental Surgery degree from Loma Linda University, Loma Linda, in 1993.
After a few years in group practice, she relocated to San Diego (her favorite place to get away from early- based school and work), married, started a family, and fulfilled her ambition to establish her own practice where she could emulate her father's example of helping patients in need and promoting health in general.
Dr. Trevino is committed to excellence in patient care and enjoys working with people of all ages. She treats each patient individually and tailors her approach to achieve her patient's treatment goals. Her first priority is to listen to the needs, desires, and in some cases, the fears and obstacles that some patients perceive. Dr. Trevino and her team then collaborate with patients to address immediate concerns-if any- and then establish or maintain oral health. Her purpose is to build the confident smile that allows people to feel, look, and be their best. Dr. Trevino and her team aim to exceed expectations through a caring, relaxed, and gentle approach to treatment with extra attention for those who may be a little dental phobic.
Dr. Trevino holds professional memberships with the American Dental Association, the California Dental Association and the San Diego Dental Society. She stays current with the evolving dental techniques and is actively involved in dental continuing education and opportunities.
In addition to her passion for helping her patients, Dr. Trevino enjoys reading, cooking and the culinary arts, and loves spending time with her husband and two children.
