Biography

Carlos Soucy DDS, MS

Universidad Central de Venezuela

Prosthodontist University of Texas Houston

After earning my DDS in the Universidad Central de Venezuela in 1993, I immediately entered the Prosthodontics world by signing into an M.S. program at The University of Texas Houston Dental Branch and graduated on July 1996. I was able to teach and was honored to receive The Dean’s Teaching Excellence Award during my first year as an Assistant Clinical Professor.

Being a second generation Dentist, I decided to go back to my home town in Caracas, Venezuela , where I spent the last 18 years in a specialty practice that I managed and worked as a Prosthodontist focusing on fixed, implant and aesthetic dentistry, having the opportunity to interact under the same office space with a fellow Periodontist, Oral Surgeon, Endodontist and Orthodontist, the merge of knowledge of each field has consolidated a great working team and it feels great to be able to solve complex cases.

I could say I’m passionate about dentistry, and I share this passion by using dental photography, I’m a true believer that a photo is worth more than a thousand words. Another devotion is Golf, a great sport that I have played all of my life. Recently I turned in my administration after four years of service as the President of the Board of Directors of the Izcaragua Country Club, a 240 acres large social institution with 1200 family members and 170 employees, a wonderful group of people that I had the fortune to guide as well as to polish my interpersonal skills in the resolution of conflicts.

For most people, teaching Prosthodontics doesn’t sound very interesting. For me teaching my specialty is a real passion I’ve been chasing for 18 years. Most recently, my work landed me a position with The University of Florida as an Assistant Clinical Professor, in which I’m focused on learning from my students and peers and to teach Restorative Dentistry in a fun and easy way. I guess you could say I’m living my dream in a wonderful place.
