Carlos Rivero, DMD
Originally from Orlando, FL, I graduated from the University of Florida College of Dentistry in 2010 and went on to complete a one-year advanced dentistry program at the VA Medical Center in Birmingham, AL. I then returned to Orlando and practiced as an “exodontist” (tooth extraction dentist) at a community clinic in Orlando, FL while growing my own emergency-based dental practice focusing on extractions and IV sedation.
After the birth of my son in 2019, my wife and I decided to move to San Diego for a change of scenery and to spend more time outdoors. I devote at least 100 hours per year to continuing education focused on oral surgery and the safe administration of IV conscious sedation.
I am a firm believer in the Golden Rule and strive to treat all patients with understanding and compassion.
