Experienced Humble, TX Dentist
Meet Silvia Vargas, DDS
Dr. Vargas has nearly 20 years of experience in dentistry, the past 4 of which have been spent right here at Progressive Dental Group. Her favorite part about being a dentist is getting to know her patients and educating them on how to care for their oral health, improving their confidence and overall wellbeing at the same time. She’s always happy to meet new people, and she looks forward to serving you and your loved ones! You can learn more about her background below:
Why Did You Want to Become a Dentist?
Just like her husband, Dr. Cabrera, Dr. Vargas was initially drawn to dentistry as a way to help her community. She saw it as an opportunity to learn how to provide a much needed service for people who normally don’t have access to high quality dental care. And, she has always been a very caring and detail-oriented person, both qualities which make her a perfect fit for dentistry!
Where Did You Study Dentistry?
After initially going to dental school at Universidad Nacional San Luis Gonzaga de Ica in her native Peru, Dr. Vargas attended and graduated from the Loma Linda University School of Dentistry in California. Over the years since then, she has taken continuing education courses through the American Orthodontic Society and is constantly learning about new techniques and technology.
What Do You Like to Do Outside of the Dental Office?
Away from the dental office, Dr. Vargas enjoys spending time with her family (Dr. C and their young son) and is very involved in church-related activities. She also enjoys reading and exercising to help her unwind.
