MEET THE MUNDO TEAM
Cristina was born in Toluca, Mexico. She attended the Autonomous University of Mexico where she graduated with a Degree of Dental Surgery. Years later, she moved to Charlotte, North Carolina and later attended Piedmont Community College where she received her Dental Hygienist License. She enjoys providing services and education to her community and is passionate about oral health. In her free time, she enjoys spending time with her family, friends and also loves to travel.
I have been a part of Mundo Dentistry since the beginning and I am so proud of all that we have been able to do for our patients. Dr. Howell’s passion and empathy towards dentistry and our patients really sets the tone for how our practice operates. I really enjoy meeting new people and getting to know each patient on a personal level. I work extremely hard to maximize your insurance and create a plan that works for you and your family. I have a Maltipoo, Nico who has my heart! In my free time, I enjoy going to Asheville and to the mountains.
I was born and raised in New York but have loved living in the Carolinas since moving here. I really love seeing the patients leave happy especially when they were nervous before their appointment. We truly try to provide the best possible experience here and I love being a part of it.
