Meet the Doctor
Lupita M. Roca, DDS, is pleased to be able to offer beautiful smiles to her neighbors in Arlington, VA, as well as Falls Church, McLean, and many more of the communities in the DC Metro area.
Dr. Roca was raised here in Arlington, Virginia. She attended St. Agnes Catholic Elementary School and then continued on to Georgetown Visitation for high school, then obtained her bachelor’s degree in psychology/pre-med from the University of Mary Washington. Finally living out her dream of becoming a dentist, she graduated with a dental degree from the Medical College of Virginia-VCU. She worked with her first patient in her father’s dental practice a couple months after graduation. Through the years, she has gained a great deal of postgraduate education in the areas of implantology, periodontics (gum disease treatment), pediatric dentistry, and cosmetic dentistry.
Focused training in Invisalign™ clear aligners, sleep apnea treatment, and more have allowed her to offer a variety of ways for her patients to achieve their best smiles and greater oral health. She recently obtained certification in oral myology, which is the study and treatment of oral and facial muscles and how they work together for general health. She is a member of the Virginia Dental Society, Northern Virginia Dental Society, American Dental Association, International Affiliation of Tongue-Tie Professionals, American Academy of Physiological Medicine and Dentistry, and the Airway Health Foundation. Having grown up in a family of dentists, Dr. Roca has always had a passion for dentistry and people. She is the youngest of six children, a wife, and a mother of two. In her spare time, she enjoys spending time with her full-grown children, playing games of any kind, and watching movies. She stays active in her community by volunteering at the Northern Virginia Free Dental Clinic in Fairfax, VA, and giving wellness talks at nearby schools. She loves making her patients smile and describes being a dentist as being “a magical experience.”
