At Home

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 my beautiful wife Claudia, my children (especially the light of my life, my little girl Alexandra). I also stay active by working out at the gym, playing sports, biking, running, water sports and training for Spartan Races.

“As an orthodontist, I am given each day a humbling opportunity to help people look and feel better. It is my passion to put my expertise towards helping my patients improve their lives by giving them a healthy and beautiful smile I am dedicated to my patients’ health and happiness, and every day I act out that dedication through creating unique and rewarding orthodontic experiences for each person I treat.”
