About Dr. Gonzalez


This course is taught by Dr. Edward Gonzalez, a pediatric dentist based in the Tampa, Florida area.  With one of the largest pediatric practices in central Florida, Dr. Gonzalez has practiced all phases of orthodontics for thirty years and consistently treats 300 orthodontic patients per year.  He is a past-president of the AOS, and currently the president of the Academy of Diplomates (the credentialing arm of the society) and an AOS senior instructor.  Dr. Gonzalez is the “go-to” expert on facial growth and development for the AOS.  He has treated more than 1,000 phase I patients and understands the tremendous impact that orthodontics can have on any pediatric or general practice.  Armed with the knowledge from this course, you could substantially increase the annual revenue in your practice by adding only five new orthodontic “starts” per month.

Dr. Gonzalez is a Tampa native, Brandon resident, husband and father.

His professional qualifications include B.A. and D.M.D. degrees from the University of Louisville School of Dentistry.
