Dr. Salgueiro was inspired to pursue a dental healthcare career by his grandfather, who was an orthodontist and his great grandfather, who also worked in the field. After completing his dental degree in Venezuela, Dr. Salgueiro practiced dentistry for several years. He realized his passion for oral surgery after he moved to the United States to complete several internships at Loyola University in Chicago, the University of Miami in Florida, and Vanderbilt University in Tennessee. Following his internships, he decided to complete an oral and maxillofacial residency at the Medical College of Georgia. Once he'd completed his residency, Dr. Salgueiro remained in Georgia as a staff member at the Medical College. While he was a faculty member there, one of our doctors was his residence, and they stayed in touch over the years. Dr. Salgueiro was happy to join our team when a position opened up at our practice. His primary focus is simply treating his patients with the best care, thereby doing his job as well as possible. He makes sure to explain to patients all the details of their treatment so they can understand what will be done and feel completely comfortable.
