Meet the Team

Dr. Paola


Dr. P is Dr. Molina’s wife!  She  graduated from Temple University Korhrberg School of Dentistry and practiced dentistry until recently when she decided that her little ones and husband were her priority. A hard decision made with prayer and love! She is now at the office making sure things run smoothly and at home enjoying the beauty of being a mom to Gaby, and twins Matteo and Milan. Yes! They are the parents of three under three so in her down time (if any), Dr. P  recovers some sleep, prays, and enjoys her family.

Our Integrative Approach 

Dr. Molina practices an integrative approach that focuses on your overall health. While we primarily provide gum treatment, we also bear in mind the effect that your gum health plays on your entire body. Our materials and dental procedures are minimally invasive and nontoxic.  We also incorporate Biologics and your own body cells to aid in recovery and regeneration! 

By treating your mouth integratively we do not treat only your symptoms, we treat the underlying problem.  In doing so, we will take care of your immediate concerns and, at the same time, provide for your long-term dental health.
