Dr. Victor Bustos, DMD

Dr. Bustos was born in Colombia and moved to Florida at the age of four. He fell in love with dentistry at an early age thanks mostly in part to his childhood dentist. Dr. Bustos graduated from Florida international University with an undergraduate degree in Chemistry and Biology and then continued on to obtain his DMD from the University of Florida College of Dentistry. He strives to always stay current on the newest techniques and continuously attends dental continuing education courses and workshops to further his knowledge and hone his skills. Dr Bustos’ greatest satisfaction comes from helping patients achieve their dental goals. “Helping people get out of pain, or giving them the smile that they’ve always wanted is truly my passion.”
 
When he’s not creating beautiful smiles, Dr. Bustos enjoys spending time outdoors and living an active lifestyle with his friends and family. An avid foodie, you can find him at many of the local restaurants as well as the Bradenton and Sarasota farmers markets.
 
Dr. Bustos is bilingual in English and Spanish, so yes “¡Se Habla Español!”
