Dr. HerreraMauricio Herrera, D.D.S. has been practicing Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery (OMS) since 2011. Originally from San Salvador, El Salvador, Dr. Herrera always knew he wanted a career that would change people’s lives.  At an early age he started getting involved in community outreach programs and loved the rewarding feeling of helping people in all capacities.

After many years of schooling, Dr. Herrera completed his full scope Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery Training Program at the Medical Center of San Juan in Puerto Rico. He then started his career in the United States at an OMS practice in Northern Virginia. After visiting Richmond a few times, he fell in love with the area and decided to open his own practice.

As a member of Rotary International, Dr. Herrera is always striving to improve Chester and the world at large one smile at a time.
