Meet the Team – Raquel Sanchez Leon

Today we’re getting to know more about Raquel Sanchez Leon, our experienced Dental Hygienist and Orthodontist, with more than 20 years’ experience. Her kind and friendly manner really puts people at ease and she is patient, caring and always does everything with a smile.

Raquel is originally from Malaga, but has lived in Marbella for many years and is dedicated to her career in dentistry. She started in 1990 as a dental nurse and since 1996 she has also specialised in orthodontics, working to give people beautiful straight teeth and a healthy, brilliant smile. At MarDenta, she is our Practice Manager, dental nurse and hygienist and speaks Spanish, German and English.

We asked her to give us her top tips for keeping teeth clean – “Brush your teeth 3 times a day, floss once a day, and have a good scale and polish at your dentist at least once a year. On top of this oral hygiene routine, it’s important to eat a healthy and varied diet without too much sugar.”

One of her passions is children’s orthodontics, as making sure teeth are straight isn’t just important for appearances, but also for their development, their ability to eat and the health of their mouth. She advises parents to bring their kids to the orthodontist for the first time at 7 years old, as this will allow the dentist to check any alteration on the ratio between upper and lower maxillary. If there is any issue they can manage the growth to avoid future problems.
