Get to Know Dr. Manuel Pazmino

Doctor Manuel Pazmino

Dr. Pazmino says that the best part about being a dentist is also one of the simplest—he loves being able to help people by relieving their dental pain and fixing various aesthetic issues. Nothing is better than seeing the relief on someone’s face or the joy in a patient’s eyes when they look at their new smile in the mirror for the first time. To learn more about Dr. Pazmino and his lifelong relationship with dentistry, read on below.

Why Did You Decide to Become a Dentist?

Dr. Pazmino says that he wasn't born a dentist, but it was his destiny! His mother was pregnant with him during her last year of dental school, so he grew up in the dental world - his mother is a dentist and his father is a master dental technician. He ultimately decided to go into dentistry as well because he saw that it would allow him to help a lot of people while still having plenty of time for his family.

Where Did You Study Dentistry?

Dr. Pazmino likes to say that his dental education has been a lifelong pursuit. Growing up, he spent every summer doing small tasks around his mother's dental office. By his early teens, he was assisting and scheduling patients. During his time working towards his undergraduate degree in biology and psychology at Rutgers University, he worked as a dental lab technician. "With the exception of dental hygienist, I have been in almost every position in the dental office," says Dr. Pazmino. He eventually earned his DDS degree from the New York University College of Dentistry.

Since then, he has completed over 400 hours of continuing education and become a Cerecdoctors Mentor and faculty member at Spear Education. He also has additional certifications for dental implants and laser dentistry, and he’s an active member of the American Dental Association, Texas Dental Association, and the Academy of General Dentistry. 

Outside of the Dental Office, What Do You Like to Do?

Dr. Pazmino met his wife, Breya (also a dentist), in dental school, and they moved to Maypearl, TX, soon after graduation. He has two sons and two daughters, and he likes to spend his free time programming computers, playing tabletop games, painting miniatures, and shooting.
