Meet the Doctor
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.
Dr. Rodriguez started his university education at Trenton State College in Ewing, New Jersey, where he earned his bachelor of science degree in 1991. He then completed four years of professional education at the University of Medicine and Dentistry of New Jersey, graduating with a doctor of medicine in dentistry degree in 1995.
He spent his first 11 years in practice as a dentist in the U.S. Air Force Dental Corps. While in the Air Force, he completed three additional years of study and residency at the University of Texas Health Science Center in San Antonio and the Wilford Hall Medical Facility at Lackland Air Force Base. He earned his master of science degree and certification as a prosthodontist in 2003.
Dr. Rodriguez regularly attends continuing education classes to stay abreast of the latest advances in technology and procedures.
Educator and Lecturer
Dr. Rodriguez is an experienced instructor for other dentists. From 2003 to 2006, he served as a clinical associate professor in the Graduate School of Biomedical Sciences at the University of Texas Health Science Center at San Antonio.
Since practicing in Dallas, he has given numerous lectures on prosthodontic techniques to colleagues at local professional organizations. This includes the Dallas County Dental Society, the Denton County Dental Society and numerous dental study clubs.

He has been featured in D Magazine as part of their annual list of the “Best Dentists in Dallas”, and in Texas Monthly magazine as a “Texas Super Dentist”.
