The newly-opened Smile Makers Group (SMG) is led by Dr. Paola Duque and Dr. Carlos Marquez, two experienced, internationally accredited dental surgeons who have established an excellent reputation in Los Algodones–Mexico’s most popular dental tourism destination.


About Smile Makers Group


Having previously worked at two of the largest dental clinics here on the US-Mexico border, Smile Makers’ founders have amassed more than two decades of clinical experience between them, helping thousands of North American patients transform their smiles and overall oral health with savings of up to 70% compared to back home.


Having carried out specialist training in the placement of dental implants, crowns and veneers, the team at this ultra-modern facility is able to help patients seeking minimally invasive smile makeovers, as well as full-arch or full mouth restorations with the placement of multiple implants onto which custom-made, fixed prosthetic teeth can be placed—putting a permanent smile back on the faces of edentulous patients.


The clinic has three well-equipped private treatment rooms, allowing dentists to provide a friendly, more personalized approach to both simple and complex cases. This also ensures that accurate diagnoses are made, with patients being presented with the best possible solutions following thorough oral health evaluations with state-of-the-art dental technology, such as CT scanning machines and 3D/panoramic x-rays.


Dentists at Smile Makers Group


Dr. Paola Duque – General Dentist, Smile Designer, Diagnosis and Treatment Plan Coordinator.


This experienced dentist is a member of the American Dental Association (ADA) and is certified by the International Team for Implantology (ITI). Since graduating as a dental surgeon in 2012, she has carried out continuous training, attending courses and seminars in Central America, South America, Europe and the United States, including a residency (2014) at University San Francisco de Quito Ecuador (periodontal surgical techniques); a workshop in advanced implant dentistry/periodontics in Jerusalem (2016); an “All-on-X” course (full-arch implant ninja education) by Ivan Chicchon in California (2020); and a surgical protocols course by Dr. Paulo Malo (Lisbon 2018), the pioneer of Nobel Biocare’s All-on-4® treatment concept.


Dr. Carlos Marquez – Periodontics, Implant and Rehabilitations Specialist


As an expert in gum disease treatment and implant-based restorations, Dr. Marquez holds memberships with the American Academy of Periodontology (AAP) and the International Team for Implantology (ITI). Similarly, he has attended more than 20 different courses and seminars around the world over the last decade, including the ITI World Congress in 2017; the International Congress of Orthodontics, Endodontics, Implants and Pharmacology in Morelia (2018); and official courses by global dental implant brands MIS®, Neodent® and Straumann®.

Absolutely wonderful organization! Everyone is so professional, knowledgeable, and kind! They made me feel very secure and safe, always explaining to me the procedures before they executed them. I cannot be happier with the work they did. It changed my life for the better. I’m so happy and it was worth every penny!
