Life & Hobbies

Dr. Fernandez was born and raised in the Dominican Republic, where his uncle worked as a dentist. As a child, Dr. Fernandez would help his uncle around the office, where he watched his uncle build genuine relationships with the people he served – he loved seeing the positive impact his uncle had on their lives, which led Dr. Fernandez to follow in his footsteps.

After completing his first dental degree in the Dominican Republic, Dr. Fernandez relocated to the United States and earned his second dental degree in New York so he could continue his practice in America.  Outside of dentistry, Dr. Fernandez enjoys watching movies, binging Netflix, and flying remote-controlled model helicopters.
