Sonia joined the Black Orthodontics team in 2007 and is a very important clinical chairside assistant as well as our lab technician. She is fluent in both English and Spanish.
Before coming to work for Dr. Black, Sonia worked at a pediatric dental clinic and still loves working with children and helping them improve their smiles. She still remembers how orthodontics changed the way she felt about herself for the better. “A smile lasts a lifetime, and being able to touch an individual and give them the gift of a smile is amazing.”
She wants people to know that it’s never too late, though, even if you’re an adult. “Braces are not as noticeable as they were in the past. They are less invasive and more comfortable. You’re never too old to get the smile you’ve always wanted!”
Sonia grew up in Mexico, and her husband, Wladimir, is from Chile. She loves spending time with him and their children, Emily and Santiago. “I like to garden, hike, and be in nature,” she says. Her other hobbies include jewelry making, flower arranging, traveling, sleeping, and spending time with her congregation.
