Doctor Portocarrero on the most rewarding part of practicing dentistry Read Transcript

Dr. Javier Portocarrero decided to become a dentist because he enjoys working with his hands and interacting with people. His favorite part of his job is the long-term relationships he is able to build with his patients. He enjoys seeing families grow and experiencing their milestones with them, such as graduations, new jobs, new babies, and retirements.

Dr. Portocarrero studied molecular cellular developmental biology at the University of California, Santa Cruz and then went on to earn his doctorate of dental medicine (DMD) from the Boston University Henry M. Goldman School of Dental Medicine. Dr. Portocarrero has been practicing dentistry since 2004.

Following dental school, he spent three years working for a dental corporation. His stint in corporate dentistry inspired him to go into private practice in 2008, serving patients of all ages to the quality dental care they deserve.

After almost 14 years of practicing dentistry, he has seen many changes in the dental field. To keep up with the latest and greatest in dental techniques and technologies, he attends regular continuing education courses at prestigious organizations like the Engel Institute in North Carolina. He has completed extensive training in various areas of dentistry, including:

  • Dental implants
  • Laser dentistry
  • Sleep apnea treatment

In 2014, Dr. Portocarrero had a new dental office built. He is always looking for new ways to make the patient experience as pleasant as possible. He has put together an exceptional dental team, invested in advanced dental technology, and given his office a spa-like feel. He also provides various amenities for your comfort, including:

  • Soothing waterfalls throughout the office
  • Warm blankets and soft pillows
  • Aromatherapy
  • Massage chairs in every care room

Outside of the office Dr. Portocarrero enjoys spending time with his family and their two Boston terriers, Cocoa and Pebbles. As a family, they enjoy traveling and experiencing new cultures.
