Zulay Montiel is a dental assistant at Affordable Dental Care. She grew up in Machiques, Venezuela and studied dentistry at the University of Zulia. She has worked at Affordable Dental Care since the Madison office opened in April 2018.
There was a dental office in Zulay’s middle school in Venezuela, which she visited often because the dentist was really handsome. Because she was there so much, the dentist thought she liked the office, so he gave her a tour and showed her the dental equipment. One day, he took her hands and told her that she had the hands of a dentist. She wanted to work in dentistry from that day on. Her favorite part of working at Affordable Dental Care is the humanity she witnesses in this office. When she’s not at work, Zulay likes to play tennis, which has been a hobby of hers since she lived in Venezuela. She is expecting her first daughter in September 2019!
