The Collectors

Arturo F. Mosquera, D.M.D., M.S., runs one of Miami’s most celebrated practices in orthodontics and dentofacial orthopedics. At the age of nine he and his family fled the communist take over in his native Cuba. Growing up in exile, Dr. Mosquera would eventually channel his passion for his native country, and his love of art, into the creation of a major art collection. Dr. Mosquera and his wife Liza Mosquera, have turned his office into one of Miami’s hot new alternative spaces for exhibitions, installations and performances. A graduate of the prestigious Schools of Dentistry and Orthodontics at the Universities of Florida and Tennessee, and a recipient of many awards and distinctions in his profession and specialty, Dr. Mosquera has been involved in many humanitarian and philanthropic causes. His wife, Liza is a native of El Salvador and has been the office manager of her husband’s orthodontic practice for over 25 years. She is a devoted mother who loves cooking, reading and hiking. The couple currently live in Coral Gables, Florida with their three children.
