Meet Dr. Mary Morales

Dentist in Fredericksburg, VA


As Chief Executive Officer and Founder of Avila Management Services, Dr. Mary Morales brings over 25 years of experience in the dental operations management field. As of November 2021, the new owner of Lake Plaza Dental, Dr. Morales is driven to continue a dental care environment that always puts the patients’ needs first.

Her passion to provide a “patient first” culture in healthcare was cultivated by helping communities underserved during an externship in the Amazon Rainforest. This experience opened her eyes to the communities that are in need of basic healthcare and education. In February 2022 Dr. Morales founded the non-profit, Smiles that Care, with the goal of reaching underserved communities domestically and abroad.

In her spare time, Dr. Morales continues to practice dentistry during her many mission trips worldwide. Her last trip was in early 2020, where she provided dental care to patients in Guatemala. She is excited to restart doing her mission trips post-covid in 2022. To check out her latest trips and future projects, or to see how you can help, please visit
She strives to grow personally and professionally by attending continuing education courses to keep up with the latest techniques and provide the best dental care to the underserved.
