Dr. Quintanilla (Dr. Q), DDS
Dr. Quintanilla, a sixth-generation Texan, was born and raised in Karnes City, Texas, a rural town about one hour south of Seguin. He graduated with a bachelor’s degree in Cell and Molecular Biology from the University of Texas at Austin and received his Doctor of Dental Surgery (DDS) from the UT Health San Antonio School of Dentistry. He is grateful for the opportunity to practice dentistry in the same area he grew up in and is excited to become an active member of the local community.
Dr. Q’s passion for dentistry was founded in his love for research. While in dental school he was president of the Student Research Group and won multiple awards for his involvement in enamel formation research. Through this experience, he has learned how oral health is tightly connected to our overall health. He is committed to educating patients on this importance and to providing the highest quality of care, leading with his patients’ comfort and satisfaction. Dr. Quintanilla spends time each year dedicated to continuing education to further his knowledge of the field and is a member of the American Dental Association and the Texas Dental Association.
In his free time, you can find Dr. Q floating down the Frio River, at a concert, attending a Longhorns or Spurs game, or playing with his dog, Asher.
