Pedro Franco, DDS


Dr. Pedro Franco was born in Cali, Colombia. He attended Pontificia Universidad Javeriana School of Dentistry, in Bogota, Colombia, where he earned his DDS degree and completed his oral and maxillofacial surgery residency. Following his surgical training in Colombia, Dr. Franco went to Loyola University Medical Center in Chicago completing an oral and maxillofacial training program under Drs. Mark Steinberg and Louis Mercuri. He then spent 15 months in a postgraduate fellowship program at Baylor University Medical Center in Dallas, with Dr. Larry Wolford. Following the fellowship, he returned to Colombia and built a successful private practice in Bogota, in addition to joining Pontificia Javeriana University as a clinical professor.

In 2000, Dr. Pedro Franco came back to Dallas and joined the oral and maxillofacial surgery faculty at Baylor College of Dentistry, Texas A & M University System Health Science Center. He was employed as a full-time professor instructing the undergraduate and graduate students on oral surgical techniques.

After five years at Baylor, Dr. Franco entered into private practice but remained as a part-time faculty member. He is currently the president of a major oral surgeons’ organization.

In his private practice, Dr. Franco practices the full scope of oral and maxillofacial surgery with an emphasis in temporomandibular joint, or TMJ, reconstructive surgery. He special interests are performing facial cosmetic and orthognathic jaw surgery, as well as placing dental implants. Dr. Franco has hospital privileges at Baylor University Medical Center in Dallas.

In addition to his private practice, Dr. Franco travels to other countries on mission trips to treat patients with cleft lip and palate deformities, and children with craniofacial syndromes. He also lectures internationally on the topics of facial reconstruction, dental implants, temporomandibular joint, and orthognathic surgery.

As a priority, he decided to change his practice to an opioid free practice to join the fight against opioid addiction in our country.

As a dedicated husband and father, Dr. Franco has many interests outside of his specialty. He enjoys running, cooking, traveling, and spending time with his family. In addition to personal hobbies, he belongs to non-profit organizations such as Healing the Children and the United for Colombia. Further charitable activities include orchestrating and performing pro-bono medical care for patients from other countries who can benefit from advanced procedures and techniques offered in the U.S.
