Dr. Zara Hernandez was born in Kingston, Jamaica. She earned a B.S. from Campbell University, and continued her education at the UNC Chapel Hill Dental School.
Dr. Hernandez decided at a young age that she wanted to be a dentist, because a cousin that she looked up to growing up in Jamaica was a dentist.
She now resides in the Triad with her husband and children. Dr. Hernandez enjoys traveling, exploring new foods, and staying busy and active with her large family.
