Abstract: In this letter we present a simple scenario where the mass scales associated to atmospheric and solar neutrino oscillations are obtained through the dynamical generation of neutrino masses. The main idea is that the two different scales are the result of two independent mechanisms, namely a type-I seesaw generating the atmospheric scale and a radiative 1-loop process providing the solar one. A relation of the two scales, reminiscent of the so-called sequential dominance, is thus obtained.
