Working alongside his mother, Dr. Carol Moreno, Dr. Roberto Moreno is continuing his family’s tradition of providing the most comfortable, high-quality dental care at Gentle Family Dentists.
Dr. Roberto Moreno was inspired by his mother to become a dentist. He graduated from the University of Iowa dental school in 2010 and joined our practice shortly afterward. He loves providing patients with new smiles, specifically with dental implants. The ability to design a patient’s full, healthier smile from start to finish with the latest technology continues to fascinate Dr. Roberto.
What’s equally important to him is every patient’s comfort during each visit. He’s happy only when his patients are happy, which is why he offers numbing gels to prevent any discomfort during treatments, warm neck pillows, ceiling TVs, and free nitrous oxide to ensure total relaxation.Read Transcript
My mom is my main inspiration for becoming a dentist. I work with her every day. I love working with her. When I was younger, I never thought I'd get into dentistry. But after working with my mom as a dental assistant, in her practice, I thought it was something that I really could do, and I was really excited about. And then I went to University of Iowa for dental school. Me and Dr. Carol are big supporters of the Academy of General Dentistry that really is advocating a lot of continuing education. Personally have a fellowship in the Academy of General Dentistry, and my mom has her mastership, and lifelong service award. And you get these by completing many hours in different aspects of dentistry.
And we just think it's really important to keep on all advances that dentistry is doing, plus a lot of the things that we learned in dental school aren't really applicable any more. So, in order to really give the best to our patients, we want to keep up on continuing Ed. And we take over 200 hours every year. And we think it's really important. The most rewarding part for me is being able to contribute to somebody, in a very positive way, whether it's making sure that they are able to smile big, or being able to chew food that they couldn't chew before. Both of those things are one of the best things I can do. Being able to impact the community in a positive way is something that I'm very passionate about.
In commitment to his patients, Dr. Roberto has received his fellowship from the Academy of General Dentistry and will be receiving his mastership next year. He is also vice president of the Iowa Academy of General Dentistry.
Dr. Roberto shares his mother’s devotion for giving back to their community and serves as president of the West Liberty Lions Club. When he’s away from the office, he spends time with his other family members, including his wife, Adriana, and their pug, Maya.
Dr. Roberto Moreno looks forward to taking great care of your family’s smiles at our West Liberty, IA dentist office or Muscatine, IA dentist office.
