Welcome to Lower Valley Dental Associates.

Our office provides specialized dentistry for children and adolescents in a warm and caring environment. As a pediatric dentist, Dr. Rodriguez’s 2-3 years of additional training after dental school has prepared her for the unique dental needs of each child she serves. Dr. Pirtle’s additional year of dental training in the field of Prosthodontics has prepared him for crowns, bridges, esthetics, and removable appliances. We focus on preventive care to help grow a healthy smile that will last a lifetime. Our office serves children, teens, and children with special health care needs in Brownsville, TX.


We understand your time is valuable. To improve the timeliness of our patient appointments, effective June 30, 2018, our new office policy will require you to confirm your appointment no later than noon the day before your scheduled appointment. Our team will contact you via text message for confirmation.

We will no longer make phone calls to confirm appointments.

You may always call to confirm via phone, but our team will rely primarily on text message communication. We cannot guarantee that a non-confirmed or late arrival appointment will be honored; we are determined to respect our confirmed patient appointment times.
Keeping a current mobile number on file with our office is imperative for this procedure to work effectively. Should your number change, please call to update your information. Otherwise, your appointment will remain unconfirmed and subsequently canceled.
We are enforcing this policy for our commitment in outstanding service to you. We fully understand that no one likes waiting in the doctor’s office. Our purpose and goal for this new policy is to minimize your wait time and maximize your office time.

Thank you for helping us serve you better!


Going to the dentist is about more than having teeth cleaned or cavities filled. Our practice provides a secure, learning environment for all ages. We emphasize the importance of excellent oral health and how to achieve long lasting, happy smiles. Not only do we teach this to our patients, but we share the information with our parents. We believe that a partnership between our office and our parents and family will encourage our patients to maintain an overall healthy lifestyle. We hope your visit to our dental home will be an inviting experience for both you and your family.
