After graduating from dentistry school in the Philippines, Marissa B. Oriel moved to the United States in 1989 and began working as a dental assistant as she continued school.

In 2008, she opened up her first office on Pioneer Blvd. and shortly afterward moved to their current location on 11960 Artesia Blvd.

"We bought a vacant lot and then built it to its current state from scratch," said Oriel.

Oriel hired an architect from Texas whom she met during a design seminar, and is very happy with the aesthetic design that the architect created for her office.

Oriel's dental office features General Practice, an Orthodontist, a Periodontist, and a Hygienist. 

"We also have state-of-the-art technology," said Oriel.  "One example is the Cerec machine which allows us to create a crown in one hour ... perfect for those patients who are in a rush."

Oriel says that she focuses on quality; not quantity.  "I don't like double-booking, and I like to space out patients so I can spend more time with each."

"Artesia is my home," said Oriel.  "This is where I started from scratch, and I feel at home here."
