Mora & Valdez Dentistry was born from the illusion of improving smiles by doing what we like the most, “dentistry.”
Thus, on a sunny afternoon in Barcelona outside the university, Priscilla Mora and Ricardo Valdez, both dentists studying the Master in Oral and Aesthetic Rehabilitation, commented on a dream of creating a different dental clinic.

The road to defining that vision was long, but they finally succeeded. Mora & Valdez Dentistry, located in Vita Plaza, is the result of a new dental clinic. The feeling of being in a place intimately connected with nature that your eyes can appreciate leaves you speechless, and this experience makes us different.

The cozy and relaxed atmosphere equipped with technology that allows us to develop complex treatments that otherwise could not be performed guarantees us the peace of mind we share with our patients. The degree of specialization and continuous training of our colleagues and collaborators who assist us strengthens us as a benchmark dental center.

These are all the reasons, in addition to the commitment and passion for what we feel, that allow us to transform smiles and share emotions; it fills us; it is our grain of sand for the world around us. Smiling is what gives us “Pura Vida”.
The project`s purpose is that our patients have access to all dental specialties at the comfort of our clinic. Additionally, we offer radiography and 3D tomography, digital impressions, orofacial harmonization, and more.

Likewise, we welcome Uvita Urgent Care doctors to Vita Plaza, who offer 24-hour medical emergency services, general medicine, medical specialties, X-rays, clinical laboratory, Covid tests, ground, and air ambulance.

Mora & Valdez Dentistry is now at new location

This article is a thank you and recognition to our patients and friends. They have been with us during all these years, many of them will remain in our memories. We want to share this new stage, inviting you to get to know our new facilities.

Tips for protecting your home


Tips for protecting your home: , Gutters must be cleaned. Make sure your landscaper is doing that during every visit (minimum twice per month), especially during the rainy season. Water mitigation starts with landscaping. Take care when changing the landscaping of a property – especially if you want to change slopes/grades. Don’t plant trees too close to your home. If they are already planted, make sure the limbs are cut back to decrease the probability of debris falling onto the roof.  
Install “alcantarillas” (concrete tubes typically used under roads and driveways) to help the water keep moving. 
Study where your downspouts/rain chains end. Do they go onto the ground? Ideally, a concrete catch box will be connected to buried plastic pipes guiding the water into a more extensive water system.  
Plant appropriate plants and trees in the proper locations.
Keep all drainage clean of debris. Have your landscaper/property manager check them.
