Dr. Machado's bio

This content was provided by Dr. Machado "Meet Dr. Machado I love what I do--There is no other profession I would rather be in! Working in orthodontics allows me to get to know so many wonderful people and build real, lasting relationships with them--many of whom I consider to be friends. I genuinely care about my patients and enjoy hearing about their lives and what's important to them. Every interaction with a patient is an opportunity to make their day, and mine, a little brighter. It is both personally and professionally rewarding to see my patients, regardless of age, gain confidence and self-esteem as their dream of a beautiful smile becomes a reality. Education and Continuing Education I received my Doctorate of Dental Surgery (DDS) in 1998, from La Universidad del Zuila, in Venezuela, where I was ranked first in my class. After practicing dentistry for a year, I began my specialty training at Saint Louis University. During my residency, I completed a Cleft Lip and Palate Fellowship at the Cardinal Glennon Children's Hospital. After completing my Master of Science (MS) in Orthodontics in 2001, I returned to Venezuela, where I was an instructor in orthodontics at La Universidad del Zulia. We moved to Texas in 2005, since then I have been working as an Orthodontist in the DFW area. Orthodontics is a constantly evolving specialty. I stay current on changes in technology and treatment options through conferences, lectures, and seminars. I also read the latest research in various journals and other publications and am an active member of several study clubs. Professional Memberships I maintain an active membership in the: American Association of OrthodontistsSouthwestern Society of OrthodontistsTexas Association of OrthodontistsAmerican Dental AssociationTexas Dental AssociationNorth Texas Dental SocietyNorth Texas Hispanic Dental AssociationSeattle Study ClubSpear Study ClubDenton County Dental Society Study ClubBeyond the Practice I am a native of Maracaibo, Venezuela and now live in Southlake, TX. My husband Jorge and I have been married for more than 20 years. We have two children, Adriana and Jorge Jr., who are both attending Texas A&M University. When not caring for patients, I love spending time with my family and friends. I also enjoy traveling and staying active, especially swimming, biking, and running."
