Meet Dr. Roberto Velasco
Dr. Roberto Velasco, a highly qualified Prosthodontist, is a native from Colombia. He received his dental degree from Xavier University in 1990 graduating in the top five of his class. After practicing general dentistry for seven years, he developed a very big interest in the future of dentistry, Dental Implants and Esthetics. After attending New York University in 1992 for post-graduate training in Implant and Esthetic dentistry, he became highly motivated in pursuing the specialty of Prosthodontics. After getting married in 1997, he and his wife moved to Florida to pursue that dream.
For the next three years he attended Nova Southeastern University in Florida for the Prosthodontic program, graduating also in the top of his class. After completing his residency he was appointed to teach and became a full time faculty member at the dental school in both the under-graduate and the post-graduate programs. He was the course director for Implant Dentistry, Dental Bio-Materials, and Occlusion.

Since moving to Houston in 2010, he has performed over 1500 All-on-4 Teeth-in-a-Day implant procedures, with a very high success rate, and restored thousands of implants with innovative techniques that assure his patients not only the highest success rates but also the most beautiful and functional restorations possible.
