Dr. Vinnie Baratta


A native of New Orleans, LA, Dr. Baratta was lucky enough to be adopted by Texas during high school. After graduating from Strake Jesuit College Preparatory, he moved on to Texas A&M University, where he balanced predental coursework with competing for a nationally competitive rugby squad. He then returned to receive his DDS from the University of Texas at Houston, where he first became interested in dental implantology and prosthetics.

This interest led Dr. Baratta to complete an Advanced Education in General Dentistry program at the Foundry Dental Center in Birmingham, AL, where he trained alongside the South’s leading experts in the field of implant surgery and restoration. During this time, he served as an instructor for Precision Dental Implants, mentoring general dentists in advanced grafting surgeries and placement of dental implants. Dr. Baratta feels strongly that his role as an instructor reinforces his surgical skills and allows him to better serve his patients.

A lifetime dentalphobe himself, Dr. Baratta has received specialized training in sedation techniques, including IV sedation to provide access to care to even the most nervous patients. He understands that many people who avoid the dentist do so because of anxiety issues and prides himself on being able to empathize and be a gateway to care for anxious patients.
