Dr. Cesar Guerrero-Barros was born and raised in Venezuela.  He completed his undergraduate degree at San Ignacio Loyola and then received his doctorate in dentistry from Central University of Venezuela in Caracas in 1976. After graduation, Dr. Guerrero completed an internship in Plastic Surgery and Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery at the Venezuelan Red Cross Hospital. He then began his Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery residency at the University of Texas Southwestern Medical School and Parkland Memorial Hospital in Dallas, TX, which he completed in 1981. 

After completing his residency, Dr. Guerrero returned to Caracas, Venezuela as a Professor in Orthodontics and Oral & Maxillofacial Surgery (post-graduate programs). By 1993 he was named Director of the Santa Rosa Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery Center, a post he held until departing the institution in 2014. Dr. Guerrero was elected President of the Venezuelan Association on Craniofacial Anomalies (AVACFA) from 1995-1998, as well as President of the Latinoamerican Association of Oral and Maxillofacial Surgeons from 1997-2000, and President of the Venezuelan Society of Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery from 2002-2004. In 2015, Dr. Guerrero moved to Galveston, TX and joined the University of Texas Medical Branch as an Assistant Professor in the Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery Division. Since his arrival the number of surgical procedures using zygoma or extraoral implants has increased drastically. Earlier this year, Dr. Guerrero was selected as the recipient of the prestigious Dr. Harry Archer Awarded by the American College of Oral and Maxillofacial Surgeons.

Dr. Guerrero’s research interests include severe facial deformities and reconstruction, axillary and mandibular deficiencies or atrophies, craniofacial syndromes, zygoma or extraoral implants, and facial esthetics. He is an international speaker giving many lectures and presentations annually, and he is highly regarded by his colleagues. Dr. Guerrero has authored and co-authored numerous publications in oral surgery and even has a patent for an intraoral distraction device.  He enjoys living in Galveston and makes frequent trips to Miami, FL to spend as much time as possible with his daughter and grandchildren.

The best ever, very professionalMar 15,2016
Problem is very dangerous to my health. They did not seem to share concern for severity and urgency.Feb 02,2016

Dr. Guerrero took an X-ray and did a quick oral exam. He was professional and direct. He told me that the implant was placed correctly and that there was fair gum coverage. He did not seem to understand my concern about continuous pain throughout the jaw and discomfort at the base of the tooth. There were no possible options offered for any kind of improvement although he did point out I had the best materials that would last a lifetime. Maybe this is the way it will be for 40 years but I will pursue other ideas.Sep 17,2015
