Dr. Sophia Villanueva is an accomplished Peruvian dentist and an inspiring success story. After graduating from Universidad Peruana San Martin de Porres, she dedicated herself to her private practice alongside her sister Patricia, a Prosthodontist.
Her ambition and drive led her to pursue a full-time 3-year program in Periodontology and Implants at Universidad Peruana Cayetano Heredia, and eventually join the faculty team. She further expanded her skill set with a 2-year full-time program in Endodontics, again at Universidad Peruana Cayetano Heredia.
Undeterred by the challenge of migrating to the United States, she pursued a 2-year residency program at Eastman Institute for Oral Health at the University of Rochester to gain her dental license. Dr. Villanueva embraced the experience of working with patients from the New York area but was eager to relocate to warmer climates.
In 2022, she moved to Naples, Florida to be closer to home and her husband Ruben. Together, they make a loving family with their furry pets Ollie and Pocho.
Dr. Sophia Villanueva is a highly skilled and diligent dentist who has overcome a great number of obstacles to pursue her dreams. Her story is a testament to her unwavering commitment to providing better treatments to her patients.
