Dr. Ricardo Seir – Invisalign Director
Dr. Ricardo Seir, a native Venezuelan, practically grew up in his father’s dental practice in central Caracas.
From a young age, he learned Dentistry’s ins and out, including procedures, managing a practice, and building strong relationships with patients. This upbringing instilled in him a sense of fulfillment in cultivating meaningful relationships with patients and helping them live happier, healthier, and more beautiful lives.
With this experience, he decided to pursue his own career in Dentistry, first attending Dental School at the Central University of Venezuela and graduating in 1994. He then went on to earn a Master’s Degree in Restorative Dentistry from the University of Michigan in 1997, having been inspired by the excellence of his professors in Venezuela, who, like him, had attended the University prior to moving back to Venezuela and teaching.
In the years during which he completed his Master’s Degree, he not only honed in his dental niche but also fell in love with Michigan. Upon graduating, he decided to stay in the charming town of Ann Arbor and start his professional career alongside his wife who is also a Venezuelan Dentist, specializing in pediatrics. He joined and later became a partner at the Parkside Dental Team, where he uses his bilingualism as an asset to serve many Spanish-speaking patients who had been unable to communicate with their dental healthcare providers.
His main interests are Restorative and Cosmetic Dentistry, and Clear Aligner Therapy, (also known as INVISALIGN). He is proud of the beautiful smiles he has provided to his patients throughout the years and is happy to see his goal of helping patients live healthier, more beautiful lives materialize.
Outside of Dentistry, Dr. Seir is a Baseball fan and an avid traveler and enjoys visiting new places around the world with his wife and two kids, enjoys playing the classical guitar, singing, and songwriting, and has a blog connected to these interests.
He is the Invisalign Director at Parkside Dental Team and belongs to the American Academy of Clear Aligners, The American Dental Association, The Michigan Dental Association, and The American Academy of Operative Dentistry.
