Get to know General Dentist Dr. Rodolfo Orozco, who serves patients in California.
Specializing in general dentistry, Dr. Orozco’s services range from basic to complex, offering difficult wisdom teeth extractions, root canals, implants from start to finish, orthodontics, and sedation dentistry. He sees patients of all ages at his private dental practices, Alpine Oak Dental and Ramona Oak Dental, in California.
Both Alpine Oak Dental & Ramona Oak Dental offer a full range of general and cosmetic dental treatments to help patients achieve their perfect smile. With a combination of continuing education and state-of-the-art equipment, Dr. Orozco and his staff are able to offer patients the best preventive care and treatment available in Alpine and Ramona.
Born in Mexico, where he attended dental school, Dr. Orozco moved to Texas in 1980 and drove a taxi to make ends meet. In 1985, armed with his education and determination for a better life, he joined the Army. Though he initially thought he would be able to work as a dentist in the Army, his then lack of citizenship meant the best he could get was an enlisted position as a combat medic, which he dutifully accepted. After he finished his time in the Army, his wife joined the Navy, relocating the couple from Texas to California. It was then that Dr. Orozco completed internships with Loma Linda University and Herman Ostrow School of Dentistry of USC.
As a contributor to dentistry and medicine, Dr. Orozco serves as an instructor & mentor to his colleagues. To further his professional development, he remains a member of the International Congress of Oral Implantologists, the Alpine Chamber of Commerce, the Hispanic Dental Association, the Dental Organization for Conscious Sedation, and the Internet Dental Alliance.
Dentistry, also known as Dental and Oral Medicine, is a branch of medicine that consists of the study, diagnosis, prevention, and treatment of diseases, disorders, and conditions of the oral cavity. Dentists diagnose and treat dental issues and help patients develop better oral hygiene regimens. They clean teeth, correct bite issues, perform surgeries and extractions, and perform other duties to ensure that the teeth and mouth are healthy.
Attributing his success to his patients, Dr. Orozco loves what he does. “I’ve always looked at my patients as someone to whom I owe so much, because without them, I wouldn’t be able to feed my family and put a roof over their heads. To me, the best way I can repay the debt I owe to my patients is by always training and always trying to be better than myself — not other dentists — myself, every day.” he stated.
When he is not practicing dentistry, he enjoys spending time with his family, including his wife, their 4 daughters, and 3 grandchildren. His hobbies include anything artistic, from woodworking and leather crafting to pen making and jewellery design. He also offers free service to missionaries and disabled children by referral.
