Dr. Wendell Dela Cruz is a valuable asset to the team as an associate and general dentist at Consultants in Dental Aesthetics and was hand-picked by Dr. Landry. He graduated from the University of Texas at Austin with a degree in Biology and a certificate in Business Foundations and obtained his dental degree from the prestigious UT Health San Antonio School of Dentistry.
Dr. Dela Cruz achieved a Fellowship in the Academy of General Dentistry, an important honor demonstrating a never-ending pursuit of continuing dental education. Not only is this distinction bestowed upon only 6% of general dentists in the U.S., but Dr. Dela Cruz also earned this title in the shortest amount of time possible, becoming one of the youngest recipients of this recognition. In line with his commitment to providing the best and most comprehensive care to our patients, he has additional training in cosmetics, implant surgery, and Invisalign, and is one of only a handful of dentists in Houston capable of performing the less invasive, more comfortable PST (Pinhole surgical technique) for gum grafting.
Within the community, Dr. Dela Cruz has served as co-chair of the Dental Health Committee of the Greater Houston Dental Society, organizing charity dental events like the city-wide “Give Kids a Smile” day for lower-income children and “Veteran Smile Day.” He helped organize and run a New Dentist Study Club for the Houston Academy of General Dentistry, facilitating continuing education opportunities for young dentists.
Having grown up in Cy-Fair, Dr. Dela Cruz has strong ties within the neighborhood and effortlessly relates to the patients of CDA. Dr. Dela Cruz has also lived in Saudi Arabia, The Philippines, Canada, and Mexico, and continues to travel and explore the world. He enjoys staying physically active; working out; playing with his dog, Neo; exploring Houston’s burgeoning craft brewery scene; and tinkering with DIY projects around the house. Dr. Dela Cruz loves trying new foods around Houston and will not hesitate to try a recommendation for the next delicious burger joint.
Dr. Dela Cruz is meticulous, energetic, nonjudgmental, and compassionate - the type of dentist we cherish at CDA. His patience and sincerity will make your experience at CDA welcoming and complete.
