Travis Quintanilla, DDS

Travis Quintanilla, DDS General Dentist

Dr. Quintanilla was born and raised in Karnes City, Texas, a small rural town about one hour southeast of San Antonio. He graduated with a Bachelor of Science in Cell and Molecular Biology from the University of Texas at Austin and received his Doctor of Dental Surgery from the UT Health San Antonio School of Dentistry. While in dental school he was president of the Student Research Group and won multiple awards for his involvement in enamel formation research.

Dr. Q’s passion for dentistry is founded in his love for research. Through this experience, he has learned how our overall health is tightly connected to our oral health. He is committed to educating patients on this importance and to providing the highest quality of care, all the while ensuring his patients’ comfort and satisfaction.

In his free time you can find Dr. Q floating down the Frio River, exploring new places and events in San Antonio, attending a Longhorns or Spurs game, or traveling—his goal is to visit all 50 states in his lifetime!

Dr. Quintanilla is a member of the Academy of General Dentistry, American Dental Association, Texas Dental Association, San Antonio District Dental Society, and the Greater San Antonio Hispanic Dental Association.
