Erika Quinteros
Dental assistant

I was born in El Salvador in Central America, but I have lived in Conway, South Carolina for over 17 years. I’ve recently discovered a passion for dentistry and I graduated the Palmetto School of Career Development as a dental assistant. I give God all the glory for where I am today. I have a wonderful family and I love to spend as much time with them as possible, especially my 8 year old sister who loves to do everything with me. In my spare time I love to go to the beach and just relax. I’m super excited to be part of the Grand Strand Dentistry family and enjoy helping others maintain a great smile.

Nací en El Salvador pero eh vivido en Conway, Carolina del Sur por más de 17 años. Recientemente descubrí una pasión por la dentadura y me gradué de la escuela de Palmetto School of Career Development como asistente de dentista. Le doy toda la gloria a Dios por ábreme permitido llegar asta aquí. Tengo una familia maravillosa y me encanta pasar tiempo junto a ellos, en especial mi hermanita de 8 años que le gusta hacer todo con migo. En mi tiempo libre me gusta ir a la playa y relajarme. Estoy súper feliz de formar parte de la familia de Grand Strand Dentistry y ayudar a los demás a mantener una sonrisa brillante.
