Meet Dr. Duran

Dr. Ramon A. Duran​

Dr. Ramon A. Durán has more than 25 years of experience providing top-quality cosmetic and restorative dental care. He graduated Magna Cum Laude from the University of Puerto Rico School of Dental Medicine before going on to complete a general practice residency at Yale-New Haven Hospital. Over the years, Dr. Durán has built a reputation as a top dentist in San Juan by taking a unique and comprehensive approach to patient care.

For 20 years, Dr. Durán was a member of the faculty of the School of Dental Medicine of the University of Puerto Rico. Through the years, Dr. Durán has also been a recognized speaker in the field of cosmetic and restorative dentistry, sharing his knowledge and experience with many dentists in Puerto Rico and abroad.

Unlike most dentists, Dr. Ramón A. Durán practices the concept of complete dentistry, which emphasizes a comprehensive, individualized approach to a patient’s dental care, beginning with prevention and early intervention. Contrary to what you might think, this doesn’t mean drill and fill every tooth.

Rather, the complete dentistry that Dr. Durán practices requires an understanding of every structural part of your chewing system, including your jaw joints, facial and temporal muscles, and teeth. In the long run, this could save you from years of pain, suffering and extensive costs for multiple and repeated dental work.

Analyzing the 10 structural and functional factors in the chewing system is the basis for every new patient examination. This process allows Dr. Durán to properly diagnose and treat not only obvious problems, but also those that haven’t even appeared yet.

As a graduate of The Dawson Academy, Dr. Durán is among a select group of dentists (just 10 percent of dentists in the U.S.) who practice the concept of complete dentistry. He can identify the signs of problems before any symptoms or damage occurs, which means you can receive treatments in a more conservative and less costly manner.
