Hi! My name is Rafael Soltero, a dentist and the newest member of Dr. Siao's office since April 2018. I grew up in Rochester, NY until the age of 11 when I moved with my family to Weston, Florida.
After graduating from St. Thomas Aquinas High School, my college years were spent at the University of Florida, where I earned my Bachelor of Science in Microbiology and Cell Science in 2008. I obtained my Doctor of Dental Surgery degree with honors from Marquette University School of Dentistry in 2013.
Through continuing education courses, volunteering and participation in dental organizations, I strive to maintain excellence in all fields of dentistry while continuing to grow as new technology is constantly being introduced. Currently, I am a member of the American Dental Association and Florida Dental Association. One of my most memorable volunteer opportunities was with Global Medical Training in Nicaragua, where I expanded my understanding of dentistry and had the honor of assisting dentists to provide free dental services. I also participated in a number of Mission Of Mercy projects in the State of Wisconsin.
I love my profession because it allows me to create special relationships and provide care to people of all ages and give them a healthy smile.
When not practicing my passion for dentistry, I enjoy spending valuable time with my family and my lovely wife, Patricia. My favorite hobby is fishing, but I also enjoy basketball, golf and working on my car.
I am excited to be working with such an excellent staff, and I look forward to meeting you!
