It was all too common for parents to drive to Laredo or San Antonio just to keep their child's teeth and gums healthy. In emergency situations, children were not able to receive specialized pediatric dentistry services locally. The need for a specialized pediatric dentist in Eagle Pass, TX continues to grow.
Dr. Alejandro Esquivel saw the need for a pediatric specialist in Eagle Pass, TX. He answered his calling and moved back home to serve the health of children in the Eagle Pass community.
With the help of his parents Alejandro Esquivel Sr. and Azucena Esquivel, his siblings Dalila and Manuel Esquivel, his wife Indira Villacobos, and his children Natalia, Santiago, and Maximiliano Esquivel, the idea of the Smile Factory was born. The family planned together the name, logo, colors, and overall experience of the Smile Factory.
After careful planning, Smile Factory Pediatric Dentistry opened its doors on October 17, 2012.
