Meet Dr. Arango

Colorado Springs Orthodontist Jose Arango

“When I was a teenager and underwent orthodontic treatment, I thought the magical results achieved were so incredible that I wanted to be able to transform peoples’ lives by giving them a beautiful smile. Orthodontics gave me self-esteem and confidence; two attributes which have served me well throughout my life. I want the same for all my patients.”

Dr. Arango is a graduate of the University of Iowa School of Dentistry and received his Master of Science and Certificate in Orthodontics from the University of Iowa in 1994.

From 1988 to 1992, Dr. Arango served as a Captain in the US Air Force Dental Corps, where he completed a General Practice Residency and a three year overseas tour of duty in Zaragoza, Spain.
