Dr. Santos was born and raised in Los Angeles. He decided to leave Southern California after receiving a scholarship to attend the University of Notre Dame. Here he graduated magna cum laude and received his Bachelor’s degree in Biological Sciences.
Immediately thereafter, he returned to his home state to attend the University Of California Los Angeles where he received his Doctorate of Dental Surgery. After four challenging years, he graduated with honors and was inducted into Omicron Kappa Upsilon, the National Dental Honors Society. Passionate to continue learning, Dr. Santos then committed to three additional years of residency to specialize in Orthodontics and Dentofacial Orthopedics at the University of Pittsburgh.
Outside of life as an orthodontist, you can find him cross-training at the gym or running around parks and hiking trails with his yellow lab named Jax. He enjoys staying active and places incredible value on healthy living.
