Offering high-quality dental care in Edinburg with a mission to build long-term relationships with their clients, University Dental’s Dr. Cynthia Garcia Longoria and Dr. David Longoria operate from a special philosophy.

Walking into the office, patients are met with plush couches in the waiting area, along with a clean and comfortable atmosphere. When called, they are led to an inviting room with state-of-the-art dental chairs providing a relaxing experience for the dentist to meet with them and assess their needs.

The husband and wife team share a passion for dental health and providing an all-around excellent patient experience.

She completed her education and training at St. Mary’s University for her Bachelor of Science in Biology and earned her Doctorate in Dentistry at the University of Texas Health Science Center. Additionally, she is a member of the American Dental Association, Texas Dental Association, and Dentists Who Care, a private non-profit.

This team is equipped to diagnose, treat and provide care for oral health concerning patients’ gums and teeth. And they want to empower their patients to also care for their own oral health.

Floss and Brush your Teeth Twice a Day

Many patients struggle to remember the importance of flossing. Flossing is essential to maintaining a healthy smile for many reasons, but did you also know it can help prevent gum disease? Put your floss in a place you’ll see it when you’re brushing your teeth so you won’t forget!

Use a Fluoride Toothpaste 

Fluoride helps protect teeth from tooth decay. It helps make teeth strong and more resistant to acid, stops early tooth decay, and puts healthy minerals back in your teeth.

Use a Soft Bristle Toothbrush

We recommend soft bristle toothbrushes because they are gentle on your teeth and gums while still being able to remove harmful bacteria and plaque. Both children and adults should use soft bristles, as it allows for brushing close to the gum without irritation.
