Dr. Ed Silva
I live in Edina, Minnesota. I came to the States as an exchange student from Spain and then stayed on for college. I obtained my DDS at the University of Minnesota.
I practice general dentistry. My partner and I have had our practice for twelve years. I really enjoy the cosmetic cases, the before and after is very satisfying. I have had patients hug me they were so happy.
I recharge by playing soccer. It’s a great stress reliever and mind cleanser. Our team has been together for 8 years, playing winter and summer. We have league games on Sundays and usually some beers afterwards.
I love my children, spending time with them. I have two boys. We bike around the lakes, play soccer and go up to our cabin in Wisconsin to fish and jet ski.
I plan to expand our practice to a network of offices in the metro area. We have two offices now, and plan to add a third soon. I like the business side of dentistry.
I hope to see my children develop into good people and guide them to achieve their goals. I can see having grandkids.
I admire my patients. Sometimes they have to sit for hours and they rarely complain.
