Dr. Lucila Silvera


Graduated in 1992, Dr. Lucila Esther Valdes Leon, now Dr. Silvera, obtained her title as a general dentist from The Higher Institute of Medical Sciences: Raúl González Sánchez in the city of Havana, Cuba. She further continued her studies until graduating once again as a Periodontist, 1999. Dr. Silvera excelled in her profession at Liberty City for four years along side the most recognized in her industry. In 2007, she moved and became a citizen of the Bahamas where her career was bound to flourish, but, soon after, the truth was unveiled, her journey had just begun. Those next few years  Dr. Silvera ventured into other strands of dentistry like implantology, green medicine, and oral surgery. No setbacks were great enough to stop her from thriving. Finally, in 2016, her finish line had reached, her greatest goal was fulfilled. She was then, at last, legally licensed to practice in The Bahamas. Now, Dr. Lucila Silvera works along side Dr. Dante Bazard and the enthusiastic staff at The Dental Care Center where love and care is put into every patient. She not only is a skilled dentist but also is a loving wife and mother of two. She loves animals, cooking and really enjoys fitness programs.  Mencione' que ella habla espanol?
