Meet Drs. Cesar Escudero & Michelle Torres

Dr. Cesar Escudero and Dr. Michelle Torres grew up here in the South Bay and received their doctorates in dental surgery from UCSF School of Dentistry in 1993, having matriculated, respectively, from Cal Poly San Luis Obispo and San Jose State University. Conscious that knowledge is always advancing, they maintain a commitment to education and membership in the American Dental Association, the California Dental Association and the Santa Clara Dental Association.

The doctors have each earned far-reaching reputations in aesthetic dentistry, with Dr. Escudero choosing implant and reconstructive dentistry as his areas of expertise and Dr. Torres focusing on total family care. While Dr. Escudero discovered his love for dental artistry as a student, Dr. Torres knew she wanted to care for people and their teeth since age nine. They are fiercely devoted to their patients, having enjoyed their trust and friendship for nearly three decades (and counting). Today, you’ll find Dr. Escudero in Los Gatos and Dr. Torres with our team in San Jose.

Adjusting to being empty nesters, Dr. Escudero enjoys fishing and Dr. Torres enjoys visiting museums.  They feel honored to serve their communities and be able to provide personalized care to generations of patients within their family practices.  Getting to know each patient has been a heartwarming process over the years and always the best part of practicing dentistry for them.  Their guiding principle is to treat patients as they would want to be treated.
