Doctor of Dental Surgery

Dr. Rodriguez grew up in Brownsville, TX. She received her Pediatric Dentistry specialty through the University of Texas Health Science Center at San Antonio.

Dr. Rodriguez is a children’s dental specialist treating kids newborns and older. Her primary goal is starting young patients on the path to a lifetime of overall oral health through preventative care though educating her patients from a young age. If treatment is required she can make treatment as comfortable as possible using nitrous oxide (laughing gas), in-office conscious sedation, or outpatient hospital procedures for general anesthesia.

Dr. Pirtle believes in patient-doctor personal attention. His goal is to make each patient feel comfortable by taking the time to educate, fully explain the treatment needed and cater to the patient’s specific concerns and anxieties.

Special training in adult comprehensive care, including:

  • Veneers, crown, bridge and denture restorations and professional “Zoom” whitening.
  • Specializes in special needs patients.
  • Trained for in-office conscious sedation and provides out-patient hospital services for severely apprehensive adults and the RGV special needs adult population.

Dr. Pirtle grew up in Amarillo,TX. He received his Prosthodontics specialty training through The University of Texas Health Science Center at San Antonio which specializes in crowns, implant, veneers and full mouth rehabilitation.

Dr. Pirtle is honored to serve his community as the President of Rio Grande Valley Dental Society.

Dr. Nicholas Woehling is committed to providing exceptional dental care in a relaxed and friendly atmosphere, ensuring each patient feels comfortable and well-informed throughout their dental experience. He strives to empower patients with the knowledge and tools to maintain their optimal oral health and stay on track with their dental care goals.

Dr. Woehling offers a full spectrum of dental services for patients of all ages, including preventative care, restorative treatments, cosmetic and implant dentistry.

Dr. Woehling grew up in the Midwest. He joined the Air Force and was stationed in Texas. Following his time in the Air Force, he received his dental degree from UT Health Houston School of Dentistry.

Brushing Your Kids Teeth Properly Helps Prevent Cavities and Inf

“I highly recommend LVDA. The entire staff was professional and friendly, reassuring, and patient. After an incredibly horrible visit with a different dentist (that I had been to for years), this was exactly what I needed. They went above and beyond to make sure that I was comfortable every step of the way.”
