Dr. Mauricio Mosquera began his dental training in 1996 at the Colombian College Of Dentistry in Cali, Colombia. There he obtained his Bachelor of Dentistry degree in 2001. Upon completion of his dental studies he completed a social service for one year and then he moved his family to the U.S. There he met and married his wonderful wife, Juliana who studied Dentistry at the same dental school. They love watching movies together, enjoy fishing, soccer and spending time outdoors with their 3 kids Sofia, Gabriela and Nicolas.
His passion for the dental field encouraged him to pass the American Dental Board examinations. On his journey completing the necessary requirement to practice in the U.S. he started in Miami, FL at the Jackson Memorial Hospital where he finalized one year of Advanced education in general dentistry and oral surgery training. Later he moved his family to state of Washington where he finalized a second program in Advanced Dentistry. Living in Washington for more than seven years gave him the opportunity to work in private practice until he decided to return to Florida.
During those seven years in the northwest he had the opportunity to finalize a one-year fellowship in implant dentistry at the Loma Linda University in California.
He also started the Peter Dawson academy on occlusion, cosmetic and temporomandibular disorders (TMJ-TMD) in Florida.
With years of experience, an exceptional bedside manner, membership of the ADA, FDA, and American Academic of Implant Dentistry you can rest assured knowing that your smile is in the best hands possible.
Dr. Mosquera is really happy to be in Florida with his family, loves to help people, and is highly regarded among his peers. His patients appreciate his kindness and caring and his ability to make dentistry comfortable for them!
At Family First Dental our goal is to achieve a lifetime of excellent dental health.
