When she is not doing dentistry, she loves entertaining, gardening and spending time with family, friends and her three miniature schnauzers.

“My belief is to always improve myself and the services I offer as a dentist. This is why I am always taking part in continuing education courses to update my knowledge and skills. In my experience, we learn something new every day and we are constantly growing as professionals and as people.” - Dr. Carola Hinojosa

Mauricio Mendoza

(Manager and Treatment Coordinator)

Mauricio graduated from the Doctor of Dental Medicine program at the University of San Simon in Bolivia in 2000. His main field of work was in oral surgery and periodontics.

As the Manager and Owner of Carma Dental, his goal is to make sure you have the best experience possible when you visit our dental office. Building personal relationships, working through treatment concerns, and creating financial plans has inspired his desire to work with the community.

"It is very rewarding for me to be able to help patients get the best treatment possible with the best financial options available. Thanks to my dental background and knowledge, I feel that I can make a difference. I am committed to our patients and their over all well being."

Mauricio spends his spare time with family and friends. Being an avid golfer, he enjoys the outdoors and playing with his three amazing dogs Logan, Margo and Cooper.

I received my Dental Hygiene diploma from The Canadian Academy of Dental Hygiene in 2013.

As a registered dental hygienist, my top priority are my patients and I strive to work alongside them in a collaborative effort to help achieve not only a healthy, confident smile, but sustainable overall health.
