Dr. Colleen M. Moreno
“I’ve always known I wanted to work in health care. I love creating a rapport with patients and being a part of their community.”
A native of the Philippines, Dr. Moreno moved to the United States with her family when she was just eleven years old. She hails from a family of high achievers, but is the first dentist. She excelled academically in both high school and in college. She attended the Ohio State University, where she graduated magna cum laude. She received her D.D.S. from Virginia Commonwealth University.
Giving back to the community has always been something close to Dr. Moreno’s heart. She volunteered at local free clinics throughout college. She completed a general practice residency at the Louis Stokes Cleveland VAMC in Cleveland, OH, providing quality dental care to our U.S. veterans. She has participated in various Mission of Mercy Projects in Virginia as well as in Jamaica and the Dominican Republic.
Aside from the personal exchange with patients, Dr. Moreno’s favorite thing about dentistry is being able to help patients rehabilitate neglected teeth. She works with each patient to ensure top-notch quality care that is custom-fit for him or her. No two patients are alike!
As you can tell, Dr. Moreno doesn’t sit still! Don’t be surprised if you see her at the gym weight-lifting and boxing. She loves to travel and immerse herself in other cultures. Her favorite things are the Ohio State Buckeyes, her family, and her dogs, Kona and Benjamin.
Whether you are interested in a smile makeover or learning about options to take the very best care of your teeth, make an appointment to meet Dr. Moreno at our Red Mill office. You’ll be glad you did!
