General Info

About me

A beautiful smile helps to improve a person's appearance, self-esteem and well-being for the rest of his or her life. What I like most about being an orthodontist is having the privilege of creating smiles every day, changing people's lives and seeing the happiness of my patients when they look at their new smile.
With great enthusiasm we create beautiful smiles every day, working with children, adolescents and adults to design a customized treatment plan exclusively for your orthodontic needs. Our team at Orthodontics De La Cruz helps patients choose between advanced treatment options such as Damon (metal and transparent braces), Alexander Signature (metal braces), Invisalign (transparent removable aligners) and Harmony, lingual braces (behind The dental pieces) of last generation.

"I had a good experience with the doctor, and the staff at the office was very friendly. I had very few problems. For those of you who need an English-speaking doctor, Dr. De la Cruz speaks both English and Spanish. One thing to note is that Dr. De la Cruz shares the office with his brother, so if you need to see specifically, you need to plan according to his schedule. I had to meet with his brother one time because my schedule didn't fit with Ronald's, which resulted in me being given slightly different instructions than what Ronald originally gave me about retainer wearing times (Ronald had said just at night, and his brother said all day). Not a big deal, just something to be aware of. I did have to wait for a bit after being called in to my appointment, which felt strange because I would assume that being called in for my appointment means the doctor is ready. However, overall I had a good experience.The one thing I would say is that the price of the retainer is included on the website (at least it was when I booked the appointment in February), but not the consultation ($40). It would have been good to have this included up front before the appointment."

"Fui a la Clinica de la Cruz para ponerme frenillos en los dientes y estoy muy contenta con los resultados hasta el momento. Voy a la clínica cada dos meses para ajustar los frenillos. La clínica siempre está limpia pero no hay privacidad durante el tratamiento, ya que uno se sienta al lado de los otros pacientes durante el mismo. Esto no es de mi preferencia pero he escuchado que es una práctica normal en las clínicas de ortodoncia y ya me he acostumbrado en los 6 meses que llevo visitando al Dr. Ronald de la Cruz. El Dr. Ronald de la Cruz es excelente y muy profesional. Sin duda alguna, lo recomiendo altamente."
