ABOUT

DR. Luis M. Alvarado DDS MSD

After several busy years of Prosthodontics training combined with clinical practice and an assistant professorship, Dr. Luis Alvarado has settled in Shreveport, Louisiana, his new home.

Dr. Alvarado received his dental degree (DDS) at the Universidad Francisco Marroquin in Guatemala, his home country, and developed an interest in advanced education while working as a General Dentist in private practice. He moved to the U.S. to seek further training and entered a program in Advanced Education in General Dentistry at the University of Connecticut (UCONN), Health Center. It was here where he discovered his passion for Prosthodontics and eventually landed in Louisiana where he completed his Master of Science in Dentistry (MSD) and Prosthodontics degree at the Louisiana State University (LSU) in New Orleans.

After completing his residency, Dr. Alvarado has maintained a Prosthodontic practice in the private sector in New Orleans and served as an Assistant Clinical Professor in the Prosthodontics Department at LSU. Seeking for a change, Dr. Alvarado relocated to Seattle where he continued working in the private sector as a Prosthodontist. Dr. Luis Alvarado and his wife decided to move to Shreveport to be close to family, where he is serving the North Louisiana community as a Prosthodontist in the private sector.

Dr. Alvarado is passionate about giving back to his communities – in Guatemala and the United States – and has provided dental services for patients in underserved communities on several mission trips with international care organizations and volunteered with Mission of Mercy in New Orleans.

When Dr. Alvarado is not practicing dentistry or creating smiles in the lab, he enjoys running, snowboarding, bicycling and traveling with his wife. He is fluent in English, Spanish and French. Him and his wife enjoy spending time with their Pyredoodle dogs Gizmo and Gadget.
