Dr. Robert Villarreal
Dr. Villarreal is a native of San Antonio, Texas. He attended Tom C. Clark High School then went on to receive a Bachelors of Art from St. Mary’s University and a Masters in Molecular Biology from the University of the Incarnate Word, both in San Antonio. Dr. Villarreal then received a Doctor of Dental Surgery (DDS) from the prestigious University of Texas Health Science Center in San Antonio (UTHSCSA). Following his passion for dentistry, he completed a residency in Advanced Education in General Dentistry, also at UTHSCSA. During this residency, he focused in Oral Surgery and spent most of his training with the Department of Oral Maxillofacial Surgery. Furthermore, he received extensive training in methods of Intravenous (IV) Conscious Sedation, dental rehabilitation and hospital-based dentistry, Implant placement and restoration, and many other advanced techniques and procedures.
Dr. Villarreal performs many oral surgeries, including but not limited to, complete bony impaction extractions, full-mouth extractions, pre-prosthetic alveoplasty and tori removal, extraction with bone augmentation and socket preservation for future implant placement and restoration. He offers dental implant placement using only the best and most respected implant companies on the market today.
Dr. Villarreal is licensed to administer on-site IV Sedation for patients while he performs the dental procedures needed. His state-of-the-art equipment and experienced techniques allow patients with dental anxieties to receive the care they deserve. Dr. Villarreal understands dental fear, so if a patient is anxious, he may administer laughing gas or an oral sedative prior to IV Sedation. Our office is equipped with all sedation medications, emergency medications, emergency equipment, EKG, pulse oximeter, and a fully automated blood pressure and blood oxygen saturation monitoring system. We will also provide all Pre and Post op instructions along with his cell number for any post operative questions or unforeseen complications.
Dr. Villarreal also understands the needs for patients with cognitive or physical disabilities. As for all patients, sedation produces a lowered level of consciousness so that the patient may undergo dental treatment in a “twilight sleep”. Patients will be semi-conscious with the ability to respond to verbal commands but will have little or no memory of the procedure. Sedation dentistry allows the dentist to customize the dose making it safe, predictable and comfortable for the patient in our dental office.
Dr. Villarreal is a blessed and proud father to two wonder children, Emmerson and Cameron. His wife Christine, is a Medical/Dental/Healthcare Commercial real estate agent who works for Xite Realty. He enjoys spending time with his friends and family, fishing, traveling, reading, maintaining a healthy lifestyle but most importantly, he enjoys expanding his knowledge through continuing education courses and seminars.
