Born in Peru, Dr. Cortez came to the United States when she was 18 years old with a goal to pursue her education. With two athletic scholarships from MDCC, she did just that. Dr. Cortez obtained her undergraduate in Biology and her degree of Doctor of Dental Surgery from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. During her time in dental school, she volunteered in various dental organizations designed to help the community around Chapel Hill. Once she finished dental school, she moved to the Wilmington area where she met her husband, George. Dr. Cortez, her husband, and their two children, Christian and Sebastian, currently live in Ogden along with their two dogs, Princess and Shane. They are excited to call Wilmington their home and are happy to be raising their family here! Dr. Cortez has won “best dentists” awards for several years in a row for the quality of care she provides.
Being listed in our directory does NOT guarantee in any way that the practitioner follows all that our Standards of Practice advise. For no two dentists practice exactly the same way. This doesn’t mean that the care you receive from one will be better or worse than the care you receive from another, just different.
If you have special needs - for instance, a fragrance-free environment - we encourage you to ask questions before visiting any office.
