Meet the Doctors

Raymond Rodriguez, D.M.D., M.S.

Raymond Rodriguez, D.M.D., M.S.Dr. Raymond Rodriguez has been practicing dentistry since 1995, and opened our Dallas office in 2006. He has always practiced with the philosophy of providing the highest-quality treatment to his patients and taking care of them as if he were taking care of himself.

While serving as an Air Force dentist, Dr. Rodriguez gained invaluable experience in treating complex dental situations. This experience, and his desire to solve challenging dental problems, led him to become a prosthodontist.

He completed three years of study and a residency in 2003, earning his certification as a prosthodontist, a dental specialist in the aesthetic restoration and replacement of teeth.

He loves being a prosthodontist because it gives him the ability to transform people’s lives. “I can give people back both their oral health and their smiles, and with that, return their dignity, confidence and self-esteem,” he says. “This motivates me to stay technically on top of my profession so I can give patients the best possible results.”

Dr. Rodriguez’s dedication and skills have been widely recognized by his peers. Based on a vote of his colleagues, he has been selected regularly as one of the “Best Dentists in Dallas” and as a “Texas Super Dentist.” He has also received a board certification from the American Board of Prosthodontics, the highest recognition for technical proficiency in this specialty.

Our patients know Dr. Rodriguez for how meticulous and thorough he is in his work, and how interested he is in each of them. They comment on how friendly and gentle he is and how he makes them feel comfortable. They also value how he listens to their goals and concerns, and spends the time and energy to get everything just right for them.

Judd Langley, D.D.S., M.S.

Judd Langley, D.D.S., M.S.Dr. Judd Langley has been a practicing prosthodontist since 2006. His decision to become a dental specialist in aesthetically restoring and replacing teeth stems from his experiences with the dentist when he was a child. It was his dentist who set an example for what he wanted to do for others later in life.

“I basically lived in a dental office when I was young because I had several major problems with my teeth that needed a lot of work,” he says. “I never had a bad dental experience, and there was never anyone nicer than my dentist was to me. That always stuck with me.”

Dr. Langley has dedicated himself to mastering his specialty so he can give consistent, high-quality results. After less than a year in practice as a prosthodontist, he passed a rigorous four-part exam before the American Board of Prosthodontics and became certified by the board, becoming a Diplomat. Diplomat status is the highest recognition for knowledge and technical skills in the profession.

During his tenure in the United States Air Force, Dr. Langley was the base prosthodontist and assistant director of the Area Dental at the Peterson Air Force Base in Colorado Springs, Colorado. In 2008, he earned company grade officer of the year.

In 2017, Dr. Langley had the opportunity to join his long-time friend, Dr. Raymond Rodriguez, forming Dental Design Specialists. Together, they share the vision of treating each patient like a family member and helping them to achieve their dream of a beautiful smile, no matter how complex the situation may be. They believe in building long-term relationships based on trust and giving patients results that meet or exceed their expectations. “Their appreciation is beyond rewarding,” Dr. Langley says. “There is nothing like restoring oral health and beauty for a patient and creating a friend for life.”
