Marcela Mujica, D.M.D., M.S.D.

Dr. Marcela Mujica - Pediatric Dentist Serving Charlotte, Rock Hill and GastoniaDuring my career, I’ve worked in various dental roles, offices and locations around the world. Over that time, I have come to truly enjoy working with children – especially when I can turn them into fans of going to the dentist!

A Pediatric Dentist is entrusted to educate parents & patients. This education builds a foundation of good oral habits that promotes lifelong health. I take this trust to heart in all I do for my patients.

My research has been published on the subject of chemotherapy effects on tooth enamel for which I am a recipient of the 2014 3M ESPE Healthy Smiles, Healthy Children research fellowship grant.

Ashley Goss, D.D.S.

Dr. Ashley Goss - Pediatric Dentist in Charlotte, Rock Hill and Gastonia, NCWhile in dental school and rotating through each specialty I found my “sweet spot” in Pediatric Dentistry. I am able to work with children on a daily basis, tell stories and jokes to the even the toughest critics all the while promoting oral health and alleviating dental decay. The role of a pediatric dentist is an honorary position, as parents entrust the care of their children to another in an area that they may have limited knowledge. Being a pediatric dentist allows me to shape one’s outlook on oral healthcare for the rest of one’s life, and I have the opportunity to shape it for the better.

Outside the Office

When not in the office I love to spend time with family and friends. Doing so may include attending my nephew’s football games, going to the movies with my parents on a day off, or traveling out of town for the weekend to catch up with a friend. Currently my husband, Jhermel, and I are consumed with our new baby girl, Harper, and discovering the joys of parenthood.
