Dr. Rainier Urdaneta was born in a small town on the east coast of Venezuela. His father is a retired dentist who very much enjoyed his career, and that is what motivated Dr. Urdaneta wto choose that path as well. Once he began practicing, he dealt with certain restoration cases that were challenging, and he became interested in dental implants. He decided specializing in Prosthodontics would be the best fit to give him the training and skills he needed. In 1992 he emigrated from Venezuela to study Prosthodontics at Boston University. By 1996 he had fallen in love with the USA (and Massachusetts!) so he earned his Advanced Standing DMD degree at Boston University so he could practice in the Commonwealth.
Dr. Urdaneta is married with three beautiful daughters. He loves playing tennis with them although he won't bbe able to beat them much longer! He also enjoys yoga, swimming, and water skiing on Merrymeeting lake in New Hampshire.
With 25 years of professional practice, Dr. Urdaneta's other areas of expertise include aesthetic and restorative dentistry, removable partial dentures, fixed crowns adn bridges, and full mouth reconstructions. Having worked for the past 15 years at the Implant Dentistry Centre in Jamaica Plain, he has significant clinical experience in surgical placement and restoration of dental implants. Dr. Urdaneta has authored several published manuscripts in peer-reviewed dental journals, and lectures nationally and internationally.
Dr. Urdaneta is a current member of the American Dental Association, the American College of Prosthodontics, and teh Hispanic Dental Association. He has worked as a Prosthodontist at the Harvard Faculty PRactice, and as a faculty member at the Department of Restorative Dentistry at the Harvard School of Dental Medicine. Some day when he has the time he'd love to go back to teaching. You can find more information by visiting his website.
