Meet Dr. Enrique Tuesta

I was born in Trujillo, a northern coastal city of Peru. I immigrated to the United States shortly after graduating high school. I enrolled at Florida International University (FIU) in the colorful and vibrant city of Miami, FL, where I graduated with a degree in biology.

I continued my professional career by attending dental school at Southern Illinois University School of Dental Medicine (SIU-SDM) in Alton, IL. This school made me the dentist that I am today. There I learned to give my best and pursue excellence. This positive experience was enhanced by many devoted teachers, hardworking staff, and sincere friends. It is also during this time that I met my wonderful and loving wife, Trischa.

After graduating from dental school, I enrolled and completed a residency in Advanced Education in General Dentistry (AEGD) at SIU-SDM. This residency exposed me to the challenges of complex dentistry and full-mouth rehabilitation.

Upon completion of the AEGD residency, I completed a one-year fellowship in implant dentistry. This program provided me with the skills to surgically place and restore dental implants, and gave me the opportunity to treat simple as well as complex implant cases and solidified my restorative and surgical knowledge.

Dr. Trischa and I moved to the Monterey Peninsula in December 2010 and have been servicing the community since. Our practice provides excellent customer service and outstanding dentistry. Our team is composed of caring and professional individuals that enhances our commitment and strengthens our vision.

Dr. Trischa and I welcomed our son Erick in March of 2012. Erick is the joy of our lives and we are very grateful to have such a wonderful son. It is a privilege to be a part of his life and an adventure to watch him grow.

In my free time, you will find me enjoying the ocean and waves of this beautiful peninsula. Waking up early and feeling the cold air while watching the sunrise before a surf session is the best way to start the day. We truly enjoy the outdoors and have found the perfect place to call home.

I have devoted my professional career to all aspect of general dentistry with special interest in implant and cosmetic dentistry. I have and will continue to keep abreast of the latest developments in dentistry by attending continuing education seminars. I promise that we will do our best and that all will be treated with kindness, respect, and professionalism.
