I am Gina Vega, a proud Mexican dentist in London and owner of Bishopsgate Dental Care. I graduated from The Universidad Tecnologia de Mexico (UNITEC) in Mexico City.
When I arrived to London I started with the process to re-qualify my degree as a Dental Surgeon. I could not see myself working in any other field as I decided to be a Dentist since I was 8 years old.
It has not been easy to be where I am now, on the contrary, I had to deal with many obstacles; I spend 2 and a half years working as a Dental Nurse whilst I was studying; finally in 2004 I re-qualify and started working as a Dentist in London.
I was not wrong, I love and enjoy very much being the owner of my dental practice. 5 years ago I had the opportunity to buy Bishopsgate Dental Care, it has been a great adventure and I have learned a lot during this years. I am very proud of our good reputation and I can only thank my team for their hard work and dedication.
My practice is private which gives me the opportunity to practice the dentistry I love so much. As I said, I had an excellent team, we work together to provide our patients with the highest quality of dentistry. We provide both general dentistry like Dental check-ups, hygienist services and fillings; as well as aesthetic dentistry like Tooth Whitening, Implants and Invisalign (removable clear braces).
Bishopsgate Dental Care is a member of the Mexican Chamber of Commerce in the UK and offers a 10% discount to all their members and Mexican citizens in the UK.
Even though I have spend many years in London I feel as proud to being Mexican as the day I arrived; I love my country’s traditions and share them with my children, as I believe that it is very important for them to feel Mexican and speak Spanish.
I love Mexican Independence Day parties, as it is a great opportunity to share it with other Mexicans and celebrate being proud of our beautiful country!
