Dr. Armando Aguilera, Jr. is a native of Miami, FL. At the age of 17 he pursued his dream of serving his country and enlisted into the US Army as a combat medic and dental technician. While serving with the 25th Infantry Division he attended college in the evenings and was awarded an ROTC Scholarship to complete his pre-doctoral education. He attended the University of Miami earning a Bachelor Degree with honors and graduating first in his class as Distinguished Military Graduate. He received his commission as an Officer in the US Army and was awarded a Health Professional Scholarship to complete his Doctorate of Dental Surgery at Meharry Medical College where he also graduated with honors. Upon completion, Dr. Aguilera continued his educational endeavors by completing an Advanced Education in Dentistry in Columbus, GA. With extensive specialized military training as an Airborne (Parachutist), Air Assault (Aircraft Rappelling) and Expert Field Medical Badge qualifications, Dr. Aguilera was immediately appointed as the Division Dental Surgeon to join the elite 82nd Airborne Task Force out of Ft Bragg, NC. He served in two consecutive combat tours during Operation Enduring Freedom throughout several provinces in Afghanistan and Operation Iraqi Freedom in Baghdad, Iraq where he was recognized with multiple awards for serving valiantly while providing critical care to our wounded soldiers and during humanitarian missions in local villages. In his own words: "My most rewarding professional experience was to be given the honor to serve with heroes". Dr. Aguilera earned his certification in Oral & Maxillofacial Surgery at Brooke Army Medical Center in San Antonio, TX with extensive training in Head and Neck Trauma & Pathology, Plastic & Reconstructive Surgery, Dental & Facial Implants, Critical Care Medicine, General Anesthesia & Sedation and Dentoalveolar Surgery.
