Meet Dr. Marco Flores
Centreville, VA Dentist
To me, the challenge that every patient brings is what excites me the most about dentistry. I consider it a privilege to be able to put what I have learned to my patients’ service, and thus enable them to achieve the oral health they deserve. We see every day in our office how patients regain their confidence when they have a beautiful smile to show the world. That same confidence gives them a new perspective in life, and that is priceless.I truly enjoy interacting with my patients. I take the time to get to know them beyond the dental chair. I cherish them as individuals and long-time friends, and am grateful to practice in a multicultural area where we can learn so much about different experiences, traditions, and cultures. I have grown so much as a human being thanks to my patients.

Dentistry is, in my opinion, one of the fields where it matters the most to be up to date, because it is constantly evolving. Dental materials, techniques, and procedures are constantly changing to enable us to provide better service to our patients.
To stay current with all the possibilities that contemporary dentistry offers, I have continued my education at the world-renowned Dawson Academy, with Spear Education, and with Align Technology, Inc., which has allowed me to achieve Preferred Provider status with Invisalign®.

Outside the Office
I met my wife Fernanda in Lima, Peru when we were 16 years old; we’ve been together ever since. We got married in 1996 and we have two children, Micaela and Joaquin. During my lunch time, you will find me at the gym, but the rest of my free time is spent with my family.
My wife and I have been touched on a very personal level by cancer and autism. Therefore, we dedicate our efforts to any cause that addresses them, including the American Cancer Society, St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital, Autism Speaks, and Wintergreen Adaptive Sports. We also support several Fairfax County and Loudoun County public schools and their PTAs, and the Assistance League of Northern Virginia.
