A Legacy of Changing Lives

For Dr. Velasquez, working in health care was always a given. The son of a family practitioner and a general surgeon, he grew up watching his parents change lives in the Philippines and Africa and knew he wanted to help people, too.

Dr. Velasquez earned his dental degree from the USC School of Dentistry, opening his first private practice in 2004. He was drawn toward dental work because he wanted to help people get out of pain, improve their smile, and develop their overall confidence.

Experience to Meet Your Needs

Dr. Velasquez is a member of the Harbor Dental Society, California Dental Association and American Dental Association. He continues to do extensive continuing education through UCLA, completing training in orthodontic braces, dental implants, and sedation.

Before becoming a dentist, Dr. Velasquez started as a registered respiratory therapist treating ICU patients on ventilators. This experience prepared him to apply strategic safety precautions in response to COVID-19, keeping patients, staff, and the public calm and at ease. Whatever life throws at him, he has learned to adapt his treatments to offer more services and meet his patients changing needs.

Saving Smiles From the Inside Out

Nothing brings Dr. Velasquez more satisfaction than watching a patient who couldn’t sleep at night leave his clinic pain-free. Driven by compassion and good people skills, he places equal value on cosmetic dentistry.

He has taught teenagers to stand tall, practice their smile, and speak with confidence. He also works with actors to improve both their smile and stage presence. Dr. Velasquez sees dentistry as one key aspect of benefiting others because he cares about people and wants to improve your well-being in any way he can.

Outside the Office

Dr. Velasquez is married and has a son named Joey, two dogs, and a cat. When he’s not at the clinic, he enjoys reading, traveling, playing tennis, hiking, and spending time with his family.
