Dr. Alejandro Sosa has limited his practice to prosthodontics, cosmetic dentistry, complex rehabilitation, implant dentistry, and prosthetic rehabilitation of oral cancer patients for the past three years in his home country of Puerto Rico.
After graduating high school and receiving a bachelor’s degree in Biology, Dr. Sosa received his Doctorate of Dental Surgery Degree from the Medical Sciences campus of the University of Puerto Rico in 2008. During this 4-year program, he found a passion for treating patients that presented with complex dental challenges. Dr. Sosa’s motivation to make a difference took him to Houston, Texas where he completed his Prosthodontics specialty studies in 2011. This three year program gave him clinical knowledge to treat the most complex dental cases while learning to work with a team of specialists in order to provide patients with predictable results.
Dr. Sosa believes that treating patients from a team standpoint is imperative. It brings together the knowledge of the planning dentists to provide the best possible outcome for each patient. This philosophy has enabled Dr. Sosa to achieve long lasting esthetic, functional and comfortable treatment results.
While completing his specialty in Prosthodontics, Dr. Sosa also completed an externship at MD Anderson Cancer Center. He learned about patients in need of rehabilitation after complex treatments to eradicate oral cancer. Driven by his passion to make a difference, Dr. Sosa completed a Fellowship in maxillofacial prosthetics and oncologic dentistry at MD Anderson Cancer Center in 2012. Being the only dentist in El Paso with this training, Dr. Sosa is eager to help improve the quality of life for patients affected by Oral Cancer in our community.
After being part of the struggles cancer patients go through when receiving such treatments, Dr. Sosa adopted the philosophy that “Patients should be treated as family members, you need to understand their struggles in order to help overcome them.”
With this same passion, Dr. Sosa is very happy to be joining the team of El Paso Quality Dentistry and Dr. McLaughlin in order to bring his knowledge, care and dedication to the patients of El Paso and surrounding the areas. He feels very blessed to be joining this community and looks forward to make a difference one patient at a time.
Dr. Sosa moves to El Paso with his wife Yanitza (Pediatric Dentist) and his three-year old son Mateo. His strong family values create a foundation based on respect and trust that guide him in providing the best possible dentistry for each patient. Nothing brings him more joy than knowing he has made a difference, and having a happy patient with a confident smile!
