Dr. Maritza Diaz

Welcome! I am Dr. Diaz. I am so proud to say that I have been practicing dentistry for more than 25 years and I am very passionate about my work. My mission is to thrive with compassion, dedication and experience. The best part of dentistry is the ability to establish a lasting relationship with my patients, keeping them healthy and happy.

For my education,  I received my undergraduate degree at the University of Puerto Rico, Mayaguez Campus and then attended the school of dentistry at the University of Puerto Rico and received my DMD in 1982. I am a certified Invisalign provider and I am also a member of the Virginia Academy of General Dentistry. Because I want to give my patients the best dental care, I regularly attend courses in continuing education. Most recently I attended implant courses offered by the Northern Virginia Dental Society and by the University of Pennsylvania Dental School.

I have been married for almost 30 years to another dentist, Carlos Aponte and have two beautiful children. My son Carlos is currently in Law School and my daughter, Cristina recently graduated from college and completed a Computer Animation Bachelor’s Degree.

I am a breast cancer survivor and the love and support from my family, friends and patients has been a driving force in my recovery. I love to exercise and my favorite is the spinning classes. I also love to travel with my family and learn about other countries and their cultures.
