Meet The Doctors

Dr. Marina Rios, DDS


Dr. Rios has been practicing dentistry for more than 20 years. She personally sees her patients and reserves one hour or more of her schedule for each patient depending on the procedure. Dr. Rios has a special way of dealing with children and those who are afraid of dentists. She got her DDS degree from Nova Friburgo Dentistry School in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. In 1997 she got her license to practice dentistry in California. She is a well qualified dentist to take care of your dental needs. She is married and live with her husband and two daughters in Marina Del Rey.

One important thing about Dr. Rios is that she tries hard to provide the best dental care possible to her patients with the latest technology available to offer comfort and a painless treatment. When you come to see her, you are a person, not a number. Dr. Rios and her staff will attempt their best possible to make this experience the less stressful possible.

Dr. Rios is fluent in Portuguese and Spanish as well.

Dr. Jocelynn Ortega-Gonzalez, DMD

Associate Dentist

We are excited to introduce to you our newest team member, Dr. Ortega. Dr. Jocelynn Ortega-Gonzalez is a Florida native of Cuban descent who is fluent in Spanish and has made Southern California her home since 2013. She conducted her studies at the University of Florida’s College of Dentistry, then proudly served America’s veterans at the VA Healthcare System in Long Beach while completing an Advanced Education in General Dentistry program. She has since broadened her skillset in restorative and implant dentistry through a variety of courses and currently fulfills her passion for service by working part time at a local community clinic. In her off time, Dr. Ortega – as most patients address her – enjoys sneaking out for a run, baking sweets for her family and friends and exploring new food spots with her husband. Dr. Ortega is excited to join our team at Marina Dental Care, where she can satisfy her appreciation for gentle quality care and continue to make her patient’s well-being the foremost priority. Dr. Ortega will be available to take appointments starting Friday, June 2, 2017. Initially she will be seeing patients only on Fridays. Welcome Dr. Ortega!
