Leslie Cantu

Registered Assistant

Hello, my name is Leslie Cantú. I enjoy being a Registered Dental Assistant–I get to meet new people each day, make their day better and connect with them. While at work I  have the opportunity to help people smile and feel confident about themselves. Patients leave the office so thankful and full of joy which makes me be thankful that I get to be part of their happiness. I  work with an amazing team that teaches me new things each day that allows me to become a better person and an even better Registered Dental Assistant. Without a doubt, Mercy Dental is a wonderful place to work with coworkers that are like family and patients that are just full of joy when they walk out. As the saying goes “If you do what you love, you won’t have to work a single day in your life”.

Mabel Gutierrez

Dental Hygienist

My name is Mabel Gutierrez and I am a dental hygienist. I stumbled upon the most rewarding career completely by accident. In order to complete a course I took in high school before graduating, my teacher got me a job at the dental office in town. My plan was to work there only until graduation, but I quickly discovered my passion for promoting optimal oral health and prevention of oral disease. Although I was very happy as an assistant for 7 years, I wanted to be more hands-on with my patients to utilize the skills I gained. It has been a pleasure to serve my patients as their dental hygienist for over a year now. On my days off I spend time with family, friends, and my puppy Millie. Any chance I get, I leave town to travel with my best friends where I indulge in a good book for a couple of days.
