Dr. Juarez was born in 1961 to Tomas and Maria Juarez. She spent her childhood and adolescence in Irapuato, Mexico with her parents and 7 siblings. Dr. Juarez attained her dental degree from the Universidad Autonoma de Nuevo Leon in 1988. Following graduation, Dr. Juarez practiced in a family clinic for 4 years in the Los Angeles area. It was there that she realized her love for working in a family environment, which compelled her to open her own practice in 1995 in North Hollywood, California.
Soon after establishing her first practice in North Hollywood, a dear friend of Dr. Juarez who was working in Coachella Valley as a registered dental assistant, convinced Dr. Juarez that the Coachella Valley was in great need of a reliable, bilingual doctor who was attentive and willing to work with the general public. In 1996, Dr. Juarez opened EJ Dental & Orthodontics in the city of Indio and has since continued to open offices throughout the Coachella Valley. Dr. Juarez and the EJ Dental team are determined to open future offices all over California in the hopes of providing families in need with great dental care and experiences for generations to come.
Dr. Juarez excels in the areas of General Dentistry, including oral surgery, cosmetic fillings, veneers, crown and bridge, root canal therapy, teeth whitening. she places primary emphasis on a healthy, beautiful smile for her patients, giving them confidence in their appearance while maintaining the function and health of their teeth.
Juan Carlos Guardado
Mr. Guardado was born in 1968 to Antonio and Josefina Guardado. He spent his childhood and most of his adolescence in a small farming town in Chalatenango, El Salvador. In the 1980’s Mr. Guardado made the decision to immigrate to the United States. With nothing more than his wits and motivation for a better life, he began the rigorous journey in the land of opportunity.
Mr. Guardado always had the attitude to make things happen and there was no better place for this than in the City of Angels, Los Angeles, California. Here he picked up jobs in construction, sales, and management. However, this was not enough, always reaching for next level, Mr. Guardado’s passion and ambitions never faltered as he continued in achieving great personal growth. During this time he met Dr. Elvia Juarez. They both shared a common dream, to help people not only in regards to Dental treatment, but their own personal lives. Thus in 1996, Mr. Guardado alongside Dr. Juarez opened EJ Dental & Orthodontics in the city of Indio. What started off as one office has now expanded and continues to grow, currently servicing the communities of Indio, Coachella, Cathedral City, and Lake Elsinore.
However, the story doesn’t end there. In an effort to expand community outreach the Grupos de Superacion Personal (GSP) was established, with Mr. Juan Carlos Guardado at its helm. GSP’s genuine purpose is to aide in the understanding of the human condition. GSP provides a common space where people can exchange life experiences so they can constantly improve one’s personality and strengthen the mind. Primarily located in Indio, CA, the group has already expanded beyond the U.S.A. to places like El Salvador, Mexico, and Italy!
In an ever changing world, Mr. Guardado looks towards the horizon with positivity. His goal in helping the community and those around him will always continue to be his top priority.
