About Dr. David Berrios
Orthodontist Serving Northridge & Beyond
David Berrios, DDS, MS, earned his dental degree at the University of San Carlos in Guatemala City, the third oldest university on the American continent, and his Master of Science degree and Orthodontic Certificate at Georgetown University in Washington, D.C.
Dr. Berrios has been practicing in the Northridge area since 1995 and specializes in orthotropics. He enjoys everything about orthodontics, including the interaction with the medical field. He always looks beyond teeth to locate the cause of a problem.
Located in Northridge, Dr. Berrios provides orthodontic services to patients from Tarzana, Encino, Calabasas, Porter Ranch, Northridge, and the entire San Fernando Valley. He is a member of the highly prestigious European Orthodontic Society and several other local and regional orthodontic study groups. He strongly believes that crooked teeth or an improper bite is due to incorrect development of the muscles and jaws. Unlike most other orthodontists, he feels that these can be corrected by braces, but does not favor extraction of healthy teeth in the permanent dentition in the vast majority of cases.

He enjoys anything outdoors, including hiking, camping, biking, scuba diving, and canoeing. He is also a Scoutmaster Assistant for a local troop in the San Fernando Valley.
