Dr. Daniel Escobedo: Childhood
Dr. Escobedo grew up in Corpus Christi, the middle son of parents who stressed the importance of education to all three of their children. From an early age, the Escobedo children were taught that dedication is the key to success. Dr. Escobedo and his siblings were encouraged to look to Dr. Hector P. Garcia, an affluent leader in the community, as a role model. Dr. Garcia’s motto “Education is our Freedom, and Freedom Should be Everybody’s Business,” became Dr. Escobedo’s mantra. That mantra helped motivate him to follow in the footsteps of his older brother, a successful pharmacist. His younger sister is continuing the family tradition of excellence in pharmacy school. Dr. Escobedo gives all credit for his work ethic to his parents, whose countless hours of work and sacrifice made education for him and his siblings possible.
Dr. Escobedo attended Texas A&M Corpus Christi and graduated magna cum laude with a degree in Biology. During that time, he was a part of the Alpha Epsilon Delta honor society and Beta Theta Pi social fraternity. He also helped establish the first pre-dental society at TAMUCC. After graduation, Dr. Escobedo moved to Dallas to attend Baylor College of Dentistry. He met his lovely wife, Sara, at Baylor and together, they graduated dental school in 2010.
Dr. Escobedo and Sara married in San Antonio, Texas in February 2011. As newlyweds, they moved to Houston with their Siberian Husky, Otto. They both practice dentistry in the greater Houston area. In Dr. Escobedo’s free time, he enjoys traveling with his wife and taking Otto for walks around Memorial Park. Dr. Escobedo also loves being outdoors, boating, and sports in general. He is an avid fisherman of the Gulf Coast waters.
Dr. Escobedo started a BCD Alumni Study Group with his colleagues and is also a current board member of the Houston Hispanic Dental Association. He is also a member of the prestigious SPEAR Study Club, where he and Dr. Canto and other top dentists and specialists expand their skills to provide the best care for their patients. He takes extensive continuing education courses to stay current with today’s dental advancements. His love for knowledge and constant learning is what sets him apart and makes him a great fit for Cosmetic Dentists of Houston.
