Dr. Arsuaga, originally from Puerto Rico, joins us after completing the Advanced Specialty Education Program in Periodontics at the Stony Brook University in Long Island, New York. Dr. Arsuaga started her extensive dental education after completing with high honors a Bachelors Degree in Science. Then she was accepted at the School of Dental Medicine of the University of Puerto Rico where she completed her DMD. Dr. Arsuaga decided to pursue her passion for Periodontics after 2 years of General Practice Residency at the University Hospital of The University of Puerto Rico. There she gained experience in hospital dentistry, emergencies and comprehensive treatment for medically compromised patients. After being accepted in the Periodontics residency at Stony Brook University, she quickly developed an interest in the management of soft tissue, implants as well as, regenerative procedures around periodontally involved teeth and edentulous ridges. But not everything is surgery, Dr. Arsuaga believes in a true and honest doctor-patient to be the key for a successful treatment. Also, Dr. Arsuaga is fluent in Spanish which helps facilitate the communication between Spanish speaking patients. Currently, Dr. Arsuaga is board eligible and is working hard towards becoming a fellow of the American Board of Periodontology and Implant Surgery. In her spare time, she likes to spend time with her husband and dog, get together with friends and listen to good music.
