Meet Dr. Espina

Orthodontics involves the combination of both health and beauty, and is a specialty that delivers rich, rewarding results. To see a patient motivated with their treatment and ultimately happy with the results is very satisfying. Providing these benefits is personally rewarding and helps improve the self-esteem of my patients, regardless of their age. Seeing the progress in each of our patients, both in their smile and in their confidence, is very important to me. Our team understands that our main goal is to serve our patients, and to provide the highest quality of treatment and customer service. When our patients leave the office with a smile, we know we’ve met that goal.

Outside the Office

I am a native of Maracaibo, Venezuela, and recently moved to El Paso with my husband, Gerardo, and our twin daughters, Claudia and Carla. I enjoy sport activities like spinning, relaxing with quiet reading time, and playing with my daughters as much as I can.
