Dr. Lorena Herrera was born in Belo Horizonte, Brazil and came to the USA when she was 11 years old with her missionary parents and younger brother. She earned her Bachelor of Science degree in Biology at the University of Texas at Arlington. Additionally, she then completed a post-baccalaureate program in Neuroscience at the University of Texas at Dallas. She received her dental education at Texas A&M Baylor College of Dentistry (former Baylor College of Dentistry) where she earned her Doctorate of Dental Surgery degree.
Dr. Herrera is married to Joey Herrera and they have a five-year-old son Levi; and are expecting their second little boy in 2023. In her spare time, she enjoys time with her family and their dog – Ferdinand. She loves soccer and volleyball, and to travel! She also loves going back home to Brazil to visit family and have some much needed beach time!
It is very special that Dr. Herrera was a dental assistant for 11 years prior to becoming a dentist; all in all she’s been in the dental profession for 20 years now! That experience helped her fall in love with the art of dentistry and her patients as a whole while witnessing first hand the power of a smile and the confidence it brings. She values the relationships she gets to build with each patient, along with educating and helping them in their oral health journey. Dr. Herrera’s goal is to create a comfortable and safe environment for the whole family while providing exceptional dental care.
