Meet Dr. Alejandro Caribas

As an Oral Surgeon, I am most passionate about helping my patients improve their oral and facial health and function. I enjoy performing complex surgical procedures that can restore a person’s smile, confidence, and quality of life. I also love learning new techniques and technologies that enhance my skills and provide better outcomes for my patients.

Some of the most rewarding aspects of my work are seeing the transformation of my patients before and after surgery, and receiving their gratitude and appreciation.

Oral surgery is a challenging and fulfilling profession that allows me to make a positive, lifelong difference in people’s lives.
