It is always a great feeling leaving the practice, feeling like a visit to a friend. Thank you to all the staff for caring.
Town Hall is now preparing Welcome Kits for new families that are moving into our community.

Our Welcome Kits feature and direct these new families to a small number of local businesses for the goods, services & professionals that they need to find.

Since our Welcome Kits are exclusive, and we can only accommodate one Dentist, I would ask you to kindly let me know if you are interested in being featured in our local Welcome Kits.

It is worthy to note that, according to Dr. Cathy Goodwin in her book “Making the Big Move”, 70% of new residents and families seek out a new Dentist within 6 months of their relocation. As such, 7 out of 10 recipients of our Welcome Kits are actively looking for a new Dentist.

I would like to schedule a time when you are expecting me so that I may drop off a sample of our "Welcome Kit" and explain the program in greater detail.


Dr. Roca has focused training as a cosmetic dentist in orthodontics, sleep, airway health, implants & frenectomies. She does ALL her own dentistry from extractions to root canals yet is masterful at creating a unique custom smile to match your life style.

At Arlington Smile Center, Dr. Roca as a dentist that is a certified as an orofacial myologist, she has found if she establishes an environment in every patient that will facilitate a conversion to a mature stable swallow.... proper slow, deep, restorative nasal breathing; proper oral volume and jaw position; neutral bite, ....healthy cervicals, .....cranial bones, .......with an open airway all h

Photos from Arlington Smile Center: Lupita M. Roca DDS's post 10/02/2020

I know you all don’t want to see teeth but thanks for indulging me. After all, today is O2 day and I want to show you an example of a 9 year old patient that parents were concerned about her airway and teeth position after she finished phase 1 braces with an orthodontist. This is what I have been up to the last two years. I took this photo Yesterday, and it is just one example of over at 100 cases, of a patient that all we have done is teach her to breathe through her NOSE for three months and wear a MYOBRACE for 1 hour a day and all night. Usimg myobrace and teaching her to use her belly to breathe through her nose and not use her mouth has helped her to learn to keep her tongue on the roof of her mouth. This training has helped her forget her old ways of using her chest to breathe and open mouth posture sometimes at night and sometimes in the day. She has mastered nose breathing using her diaphragm and we are continuing to work on correct tongue, head and oral posture. Last but not least we are on our way to teaching her the correct way to swallow. Yes, there is a wrong way to swallow and a right way. It was news to me too. :) I have yet to find many patients do not have a reverse swallow! Celebrate O2 day,

[08/15/20]   If you are avoiding your dentist due to COVID-19 think it through. New research suggests a link between gum disease and COVID-19 ( see below) plus our office air is safer than the air at my home with the UVairx air filtration that we bought for safety of our staff and patients. UVAIRx technology moves air treatment out of the passive mode and into the active. It’s a major advancement, for it means air must no longer pass through a treatment chamber to be cleansed of viruses, bacterium, mold spores, volatile organic compounds (VOCs) and other contaminants. THe UVAIRx unit actively outputs a continuous stream of molecules which attack and destroy the pathogens on a 7X24 basis, in a highly effective process, which is safe for both humans and animals. The difference is the active photocatalytic oxidation (PCO) technology of the UVAIRx core
