Your Smile is our Top Priority and we will go above & beyond to ensure that smile is maintained for a lifetime!

At Potranco Smiles, our  philosophy is to practice dentistry with 3’Cs in mind:

Care – There is a difference between receiving dental treatment and dental care. Our team goes beyond providing dental treatment and ensures that your oral and overall health are the two most important areas of focus.

Comfort: We know many patients are fearful when it comes to visiting their dentists. So, we work very hard to make your dental visits stress free and friendly as possible. We achieve this goal by combining the latest technology offered in dentistry with outstanding customer service.

Convenience. Visits to your dental care don’t need to clash with school or work schedule. Therefore, we have late evening and weekend hours to accommodate your schedule. We also have in-house specialists for braces and oral surgery to conveniently provide most dental services under one roof.

He graduated from dental school in 2009 and had an opportunity to serve the underserved population in the south of Chicago for two years.  He finally decided to move to Texas in 2011 because he fell in love with the warm weather and warm-hearted people of Texas.
