Dr. Tijerina was born and raised right here in Texas. He attended the University of Texas at San Antonio before moving on to achieve his doctorate at Baylor College of Dentistry. Today, he has been working in dentistry for six years and counting, and he is a proud Austinite! He is also bilingual and speaks Spanish.
Dr. Tijerina loves many aspects of his job, especially getting to know his patients and being able to educate them about dentistry. He does his best to make every appointment as comfortable, as efficient, and as pleasant as possible. He’ll always treat you like family.
Outside of the office, Dr. Tijerina and his wife enjoy getting outside with their dog Donnie and hiking along trails – both their favorite ones and brand-new ones. They also love spending time with family, checking out live shows, hanging out with close friends, staying active, cooking, reading, and eating their way through Austin’s many restaurants. They’re always open to new recommendations!
