I have been practicing at the office of Dr James Harrold and Associates for eight years. I can proudly say that I have been blessed with the opportunity of working with an exceptional group of dentists, dental assistants and administrative staff that really care for the well being of their patients and the people of the Rocky Mount community. I am passionate about restoring smiles, especially when a patient that didn't smile prior to coming to the practice, can't stop smiling after having their teeth restored to their natural beauty. As a General Dentist, having the knowledge and experience of mulitple areas of dentistry can benefit my patients in getting a more comprehensive treatment and the latest options and benefits of what modern dentistry can offer.
I obtained my DMD degree from the University of Puerto Rico School of Dental Medicine in 1999. I then had the honor to serve Veterans for one year as a Dental Resident in the Dept. of Veterans Affairs in Dayton, Ohio. After completing my Residency, I practiced General Dentistry in the Dayton Ohio area for 5 years. In 2006 I relocated to NC to join Harrold and Associates.
Over the last 10 years, I have been involved with numerous courses in continuing education such as cosmetic restorations (filings, veneers, crowns), root canal therapy, implants, invisible braces and short-term cosmetic braces. I am a member of The Dawson Academy Core Curriculum and Dawson Study Club, as well as several other state and national professional associations. By regularly participating in continuing education, I am aware of the latest technology and dental treatments. My patients deserve the best, and continuing education allows me to provide my patients with more options and better results.
I have been married to my wife Gloria for 18 years. We are the proud parents of our 6 year old daughter, Gabriela.When I am not spending time with my family and friends, I enjoy working on and/or planning "house" projects. I also enjoy working out, cars, watching movies and sports.
