Dr. Erika Mogrovejo was born and raised in “the white city” – Arequipa, Peru. Just like her native city, she certainly hails with talent. With over 12 years combined experience, from implants, crowns, veneers, bridges, restorations, teeth whitening, fillings, she can do it all.
Growing up in the vast metropolis of Arequipa, she had the desire to enter a career filled with service, kindness, and dedication; dentistry became her calling. After receiving her Dental Surgery Degree in Peru, Dr. Mogrovejo worked as a Dentist for 10 years before deciding to move to the United States to further her dental studies and career. With the belief that “hands-on” experience is the best way to learn, she went on to become a dental assistant while continuing her post-doctorate studies at Saint Mary’s Hospital in Connecticut, which is affiliated with Yale University’s School of Medicine as a teaching hospital.
Dr. Mogrovejo’s multicultural work experience and education adds to her wide range of knowledge as a Dentist – she’s definitely a talent! During her career, in Peru and the United States, her patient base has ranged from infant to adult and underprivileged to those well-off. This exposure leaves her with a vast understanding of patients’ needs and proper care for optimal oral health. Dr. Mogrovejo is a member of the American Dental Association.
She has been a resident in Northern Virginia since 2006. During her free-time she enjoys hiking and reading.
