Dr. Carlos A. Carrillo obtained his Doctor of Dental Surgery degree from UMG in Guatemala City, Guatemala, in 2004. During dental school, he worked as a missionary every other weekend visiting rural areas in Guatemalan communities with a group of dentists and medical doctors. He then practiced for more than five years as a General Dentist. For ten years, Dr. Carrillo worked for the Catholic Charities Archdiocese of Galveston-Houston, serving the community.
In 2016 he was accepted in a 12 months Preceptorship in Endodontics at the University of Texas at Houston School of Dentistry. Following the completion of the Preceptorship, he completed the 27-month Advanced Education Program in Endodontics at the University of Texas at Houston at School of Dentistry. He earned his Master of Science in Dentistry and a postgraduate certificate in Endodontics in 2020. He is an active member of the American Association of Endodontists. As someone born in Guatemala, raised in Honduras and Guatemala, he is fluent in Spanish and English. Being bilingual overcomes barriers in establishing rapport and close relationships with patients and referring doctors alike.
Dr. Carrillo is currently a board eligible endodontist and is pursuing his goal to become a Diplomate of the American Board of Endodontics. In his free time, Dr. Carrillo enjoys attending church every week, singing with his family, playing soccer, ping pong, and spending time with his wife and three boys.
