Meet Dr. Cuellar

by | Feb 16, 2018 |

Dr. Oscar Cuellar was born and raised in Guatemala. Since he was a kid he was always fascinated by the medical field but it was his own dentist who inspired him to pursue a career in the dental field. Growing up, his parents taught him two key principals that he has carried through to his career in Dentistry: “discipline is the key to success” and always “treat others the way you would like to be treated.”

After completing his training in Guatemala at USAC, Dr. Cuellar opened his own thriving practice and had a successful career in his hometown. In 2007, he felt the need to grow his practice beyond just general dentistry and decided to continue his education and dental focus in Aesthetics and Operative Dentistry. He followed his instincts and went to Universidad Internacional de Catalunya(UIC) in Barcelona, Spain and completed a Masters in Aesthetics and Operative Dentistry, which gave him a broader understanding of dentistry.

As part of his continuing educational experience, Dr. Cuellar has had very strong training in different areas of General Dentistry from various countries in both South and Central Americas (Brazil, Colombia, Mexico and Argentina).

His latest superior educational training was done at USC (University Of Southern California Ostrow Dental School) where he completed The Advanced Standing Program and obtained his DDS degree allowing him to practice in the United States. Dr. Cuellar graduated from USC with honors, including an induction into the OKU society and earning Dean’s List recognition every semester.

His passion for dentistry, kindness, commitment to community service and care for his patients makes Dr. Cuellar a great health care provider. Dr. Cuellar is always striving to improve in life; not only professionally, but also in other areas. He loves sports and Contemporary Art. He plays tennis regularly -currently playing in a singles and doubles team for the USTA in Houston, trains in Cross-Fit, and also he is a Member of the Latin Maecenas at the Museum of Fine Arts in Houston.

Dentiq Dentistry is excited that Dr. Cuellar joined our team as he brings a wealth of knowledge and experience to our cosmetic dental program and we are amazed at how many of his previous patients from Guatemala are willing to fly to Houston to have him remain their primary dentist.
