Born and raised in Miami, Dr. Merlo–Quiñones discovered her passion for dentistry shortly after graduating from high school and has never looked back. She performed her undergraduate studies locally at Florida International University, while working as a dental assistant. Upon graduation, she was accepted into the prestigious Ivy League University of Pennsylvania School of Dental Medicine, where she received her D.M.D. with honors. Returning to Florida, she concluded her studies with her residency program through the University of Florida. Since receiving her degree, Dr. Merlo–Quiñones has been residing and practicing in Miami where she and her husband, Javier, have three beautiful children that keep them on their toes at home.
