My wife and I opened Avanti Dental Care in Longmont, Colorado in 2001. I am originally from Mexico City where I started my career in dentistry in 1979. I received a diploma from the Institute of Dental Prosthetics as a dental laboratory technician. I owned and operated a dental lab for two years while attending dental school in Mexico City, but eventually sold the lab to concentrate on my studies. I received my first Doctorate in Dental Surgery (DDS) from the Latino American University in Mexico City in 1985. Following graduation I completed a 1000-hour fellowship in the Mexican Social Services. My doctorate was recognized by the Universidad Autonoma de Mexico (UNAM). While pursuing my licensure in the United States I worked as a dental assistant. I practiced dentistry in Mexico and St.Thomas in the US. Virgin Islands prior to moving to the United States.
In 1997 I began dental school in the United States. In 2001, I received my American DDS degree from the University of Colorado Dental School. I have served as a tutor to dental assisting students in the front range area, as well as advisor to the dental assisting program for St. Vrain Valley School District. I am the past President of the Broomfield-Boulder County Dental Society. I remain current through continuing education and I’m actively involved in several study clubs including the Seattle Study Club of the Rockies and the Colorado Prosthodontics Dental Society. I am currently working towards a fellowship in the Academy of General Dentistry.
At Avanti Dental Care in Longmont we offer a full range of general dentistry services for all ages, including preventive, restorative, and cosmetic dentistry, as well as endodontics, dentures, partials, oral surgery, and final restorations for implants. We also have the ability to use IV sedation for patients with greater fears. My great staff and I are a family oriented practice that believes each patient deserves quality dentistry in a comfortable setting. I am proud to offer excellent dental care to Longmont's Spanish speaking community and beyond. Although our facility is state of the art, we offer a casual atmosphere to alleviate fears associated with dental treatment.
I enjoy spending time in Colorado participating in community events here in Longmont, Boulder and the surrounding front range. I enjoy attending Rockies games, coaching little league baseball, and traveling with my wife Ellen and our son Vincent.
