Dr. Juan D. Villarreal, Our Founder
The following message is from our Founder to you.
“My name is Dr. Juan D. Villarreal, and welcome to our Dental Practice. I am a Rio Grande Valley native, raised and schooled right here in Harlingen. I received my dental degree from the University of Texas at San Antonio.
“It has always been my purpose to bring affordable, high-quality dental care to the Rio Grande Valley. With this in mind, I started my Harlingen dental practice back in 1983.
“We now have Weslaco Family Dentistry, Edinburg Family Dentistry, Brownsville Family Dentistry, Raymondville Family Dentistry and McAllen Dental Care. We also have a clinic in Austin under the name of Northwest Austin Family Dentistry.
“All our offices have as their highest priority providing the highest quality, most up-to-date dental care, great service and affordable prices.
“I think all of these points are very important and have helped us grow to become one of the largest and most successful dental practices in the USA … and it’s still growing today.”
Sadly, Dr. Villarreal passed away unexpectedly on December 29, 2019.
He maintained an active role in the dental community, most recently serving as President of the Rio Grande Valley District Dental Society. He also served on the Texas State Board of Dental Examiners from 2001-2008 following an appointment by then-Gov. Rick Perry.

His professional affiliations include the American Dental Association, Hispanic Dental Association, Academy of General Dentistry, Texas Dental Association, Rio Grande Valley District Dental Society, and American Academy of Dental Sleep Medicine.
Locally, he was an active member of the South Texas economic and civic communities, where he served as Past President of the Harlingen CISD School Board, Past President of the Harlingen Economic Development Board, a member of the Dawnbreakers Lions Club, a sponsor at the Harlingen Outreach Center, a sponsor of the Boy Scouts of America Friends of Scouting organization, benefactor of the JROTC “Set a Good Example” Scholarship Program, a sponsor of Harlingen High and Harlingen South High School Scholarships, and founder and benefactor of Narconon South Texas.
