Marcia began as our hygienist in June of 2018. She travelled all the way from Brazil to begin her career as a dental hygienist, and she now has over eleven years of experience. Marcia is a perfectionist, and prides herself on learning the latest evidence-based technologies and products to help our patients achieve not only oral health but also overall health.
Marcia exemplifies our practice goal of working together as a team to provide quality care with the best interest of our patients in mind. Her happy and upbeat nature will help you to feel at ease and comfortable in our office.
Marcia was born and raised in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. She studied biotechnology sciences and later Pharmacy school in one of the best Universities in Brazil. Upon moving to the United States, Marcia earned her Dental Hygiene degree from Tarrant County College and later a Bachelor of Science with a major in Dental Hygiene from Texas Woman’s University.
One of my Marcia’s hobbies is running, and she has competed in races in her native Rio de Janeiro, Dallas and New York City. Marcia is married and has two daughters. Her family loves to travel, and they have been to many different countries and experienced different cultures. Of all of her travels, Marcia’s favorite place is Hawaii.
In addition to exercising, Marcia stays healthy with a vegetarian diet. She is also an animal lover at heart, who cannot say “no” to a rescue. As a result, Marcia’s family proudly includes a total of 7 pets … 3 dogs and 4 cats!
