About Arelvis A. Narvaez-Moore, DDS, MHA
Dr. Narvaez-Moore come from a Colombian family with a rich medical heritage of physicians and educators. Among my family members one most distinguished is Dr. Rafael Alvear Teran. Dr. Alvear Teran is recognized as “The last exponent of the Anatomo-Clinical method in the University of Cartagena” where he was a distinguished professor. I earned my dental degree from the University of Cartagena in 1993. I did rotations at the University Hospital during my training. During these rotations I encountered severe medical conditions that have manifestations in the oral cavity. This experience has led me to see the human body as a whole. At times I find it important to consider a holistic approach to Dentistry. I have become acquainted with Dentistry in the United States through my work at the University of Nevada in Las Vegas where I observed faculty work for five years. I was impressed with the comprehensive care that UNLV offered to patients and their paperless technology.
