Welcome to Tijerina Family & Cosmetic Dentistry

Continuing a Rich History
of Patient-Focused Care

Our dental office has been providing exceptional dentistry to the McAllen community for decades now, and Dr. Tijerina couldn’t be prouder to take over the reins from Dr. Person as the latter transitions to a much-deserved retirement. Our dedication to patients in need and commitment to quality remains unchanged!

High-Tech Tools
for Healthier Smiles

Skill, experience, and compassion are essential in order for a dentist in McAllen to provide top-tier treatment — but technology is also key. Dr. Tijerina recognizes that, which is why he has invested in some of the latest tools available. For example, an intraoral camera gives both our team and you some insight into your oral health. Our CBCT scanner produces highly detailed images that play a pivotal role in planning for complex procedures. We even have a soft tissue laser that cuts back on the need for local anesthesia! This comfortable technology also helps Dr. Tijerina provide efficient and effective emergency dentistry, including various restorations and tooth extractions.
