Why He Was Nominated

Barely three years out of dental school (where he graduated at the top of his class), Dr. Osorio plans to start his own practice.

Inspiration

Dr. Osorio’s love of art and performance began at age 2, when he joined his mother’s singing group. His love of science was ignited a few years later when a teacher lauded his baking-soda volcano. As an adult, Dr. Osorio says, “I realized dentistry was a perfect blend of art and science.”

Favorite Part of the Profession

Transforming people’s lives. “When someone who has guarded their smile their entire life projects confidence, that’s memorable,” Dr. Osorio says. “But routine procedures that improve health also contribute to the world.”

Practice Philosophy

Being fully engaged at all times. “I strive to be completely focused on the patient in front of me and on the procedure I’m doing,” he says.
