As an orthodontist, I am given a humbling opportunity to help people look and feel better each day. It is my passion to apply my expertise towards helping my patients improve their lives by giving them a healthy and beautiful smile. I am continually reminded of how the smiles I create for my patients give them a new, elevated sense of self and confidence and this is something I never take for granted. I am dedicated to my patients’ health and happiness and every day I enact that dedication through creating unique and rewarding orthodontic experiences for each person I treat.I received my Doctor of Dental Surgery degree from Venezuelan Central University in Caracas, Venezuela in 2002. I then enrolled in the University of Texas’ Dental Branch in Houston to complete both my orthodontic specialty training and my Master of Science degree in 2008.I understand how important it is for my patients that I stay abreast of the latest and most advanced trends and techniques in the ever-evolving field of orthodontics. Being fully committed to bringing my patients the gentlest and best orthodontic care available, I take many continuing education courses annually. Further, I am a Board Certified Orthodontist, a title reserved for only a small percentage of practitioners. I am also offered many opportunities to stay current and on the cutting edge of orthodontics through memberships in many professional affiliations.I am a native of Caracas, Venezuela, and I have been blessed to be a part of the Houston area community since 2003. When I’m not in the office with my patients, I spend as much time as I can with the light of my life, my beautiful wife and children.
